[Taipei] L'apres Midi Cafe (立裴米提)

When everyone in Hong Kong still still trying to get in line for Coffee Alley's strawberries / salted caramel waffles, Taiwan is already on the next craze: mochi waffles!  Although less commonly found compared to the regular waffles, there are a good number of cafes already serving mocha waffles.  One of them is L'apres Midi Cafe (立裴米提) in Zhongshan (中山) District.

Located in the same alley with the popular café such as Melange and Konayuki, it's easy to miss L'apres Midi Café.  Since it was within walking distance from my office, I was able to come here for lunch on a weekday when the shop was just opened.   It's nice because I was the only one in the cafe so I get to appreciate and enjoy the space all to myself.  (Don't you hate it when the cafe gets so crowded and you felt rushed all the time?)

Wild Cherries with Chocolate Syrup

Portion is decent.  At least I wasn't too stuffed after eating the whole thing.
The mochi was filling and the waffle is crispy.  Nice contrast.
The cherries x chocolate combo is predictable but it's not overly sweet, which i
