To glimpse a version of Keelungers’ life hidden to most, take a stroll into the alleys. Roll some dice and follow the result; randomly walk into an alley and turn right or left. You will find many unexpected sights.
Ruth C. Coffee
When you walk out of Keelung Train Station, you can hear the noise from the buses, taxis, and motorcycles. Turn right, walk into a small alley and go straight. In the quiet, you will find this cozy coffee shop, which is likely a secret base reserved exclusively for you.
This shop is not big, but it is definitely a comfortable space to work or to read. Every small table has a power socket, and Wi-Fi is available too. You can enjoy a quiet afternoon monopolizing the alley’s views from a glass patio. The owner has a design background. He has a very laid-back personality and can always be seen with a very warm smile. The café is stocked with his elaborate collection of designer furniture, and sometimes he runs a mini exhibition. If it’s raining when you arrive in Keelung, cross the road from Ocean Plaza and drill into this little corner full of the wonderful smeels of coffee.
