Last weekend my friends and I tried a new place to hang out while planning our trip together for this September. Why we picked Dante Coffee Shop to meet up mostly because of the free Wi-Fi for browsing, booking our tickets and hotels, chatting, and so on. Second of all because the place looks cozy. I was the first one to arrive on that day, because of the location is pretty near from my house. You just need to accross from Central Park to Tribeca Park GF #05 near escalator.
Dante Coffee is a Taiwan franchise coffee shop. "Dante" itself was adopted from famous Italian poet Dante Alighieri who wrote “Divine Comedy” a poem that considered as the greatest work of world literature. The name was chosen to show the founder’s passion and devotion in providing high quality of coffee and introducing coffee shop concept in Taiwanese market and across to other countries nowadays.
The place consist of indoor and outdoor shop, if you like cool atmosphere you better sit inside the coffee shop. But if you're fine with the sub tropic weather you can try to sit outside while enjoying the view and people passing by. And that day I tried both of them, at first I sat outside but after my notebook disconnected and the battery is running out. We decided to move inside the coffee shop for better wi-fi coverage while charging my notebook.
Here, I finally able to taste what a Caramel Milk Tea is. I've always wonder for this drink since I read a manga goes with the same title "Caramel Milk Tea". And...after my first sip I fell in love in a jiffy, the taste is mild and sweet but not to sweet. No wonder the character in the manga try so hard to make a good caramel milk tea. To fill my stomach I choose Cheesy Potato Wedges, why? Because I'm a potato wedges fan, just as simple as that.
|Caramel Milk Tea - IDR 39.000 |
From now on, one of my favorite drinks
|Ice Irish Macchiato - IDR 40.000 |
For those who like cold drinks & coffee
|Cheesy Potato Wedges - IDR 43.000 |
The melted cheese on top really add the flavor
|Baby Potato & Beef - IDR 39.000 |
My friend's order, the portion quite large
|Outside of the coffee shop, pretty cozy...|
With the cozy environment inside nor outside you can spend hours at Dante Coffee Shop, like we did that day. There's also a private room if you're going to held a private meeting here. Overall this is a good place for gathering while enjoying your food and drinks. See you all until my next review... ^-^
