The Aroma is not the typical cafe you often see around Taipei. Aroma was born out of a series of weekly meetings they refer to as ‘Coffee Talk’. As their group grew bigger, they were forced to find a bigger place to accommodate all their members. Hence, the Aroma was established.

The tantalising aroma of roasted beans and the scent of freshly baked bread and muffins will welcome you as you enter the coffee shop. In addition, The Aroma has a cosy and friendly atmosphere where a lot of activities take place. The venue may have changed but the events haven’t.

Address: No. 205, Hanzhong St, Taipei, Taiwan

8. 5 Senses Cafe
