First Review by bluesomeone

Cozy cafe! - Edit

It’s a rly tiny vegan cafe & is rly cozy and welcoming! The staff were super ready to help & everything on the menu looked super delicious. I only had time to get a few sweet treats, however if I could afford more time, I would definitely try the other main dishes. The matcha and chocolate cookies I got were crunchy and had great texture! However, the cafe was a little hard to locate. Note the signage says Vegan Day (& not bluesomeone’s vegan cafe), so just keep your eyes peeled. ☺️

Pros: Great ambiance! , Staff’s rly nice & helpful , Reasonable prices

Cons: Location!

Cute little retro cafe in Taichung - Edit

Had the tomato pasta, matcha cake and fruit juice as a set. Affordable, worth the money and not overly salty or anything like that!! If I am in Taichung for more than a day I would have come back for sure ☺️ waitress was Super cute and nice as well! I can read and speak mandarin but their menu had English in them so it's good for Those who can't speak the language x

Love the interior too! Super retro (albeit a little small) :) free wifi is a big plus as well x

nice cakes - Edit

The restaurant is really cute and they gave us water at the moment we came. The staff speak some english. It was easy to order but it took them FOREVER to bring us coffee and cakes... i had to wait almost 20 minutes for my coffee. And we were the only people there so they have no reason to be that slow... anyways the cakes were good and the coffee was nice.

A Vegan's Heaven - Edit

Went to this cafe on a Saturday afternoon ... 24/6/17

There were 5 of us in total

Spent NT$ 780 (or RM 112.50) on 4 beverages and 3 desserts

I ordered :

1) Vanilla Soymilk Tea
- this is pretty good, very refreshing in contrast to the summer heat outside
- loved the metal straw which is a rare sight haha...

2) Chocolate Cake w Pumpkin Mousse
- the pumpkin taste is virtually unnoticeable, but I enjoyed it tremendously
- it tasted exactly the same (...if not better) as the real cake made with eggs/dairy

3) B's Waffle w Soy Ice Cream
- funny fruits combination I'd say : grapes, kiwis, and apples (which were not very generous in quantity...in my opinion)
- for some reason, the ONE-scoop soy ice cream melted too quickly to be savoured slowly (I really ought to thank the waiter there for reminding me about the ice cream's fragility)
- on the bright side, the waffle was exceptionally delish and fragrant and crisp

If I ever travel to Taichung again, I'd definitely try out the shepherd's pie, risotto, and quiche in one sitting (no remorse!)


P.S. There is a minimum spend of NT$ 180 or any beverage per person, so be wary of this policy beforehand

Slightly disappointed - Edit

I wanted to try this place on my trip to Taichung based on all the excellent reviews. I had a hot chocolate, a moussaka and a matcha cupcake. The soup that was served as entrée was great, but I had a difficult time finishing the moussaka. It was made with rice instead of potatoes, and while I don't consider myself overly traditional when it comes to cooking, it tasted quite bland, it reminded me very little of a moussaka. The tofu had no flavor and neither did the top layer of cream.

The menu in general seemed to be composed of 'european'-style dishes. Why waste time on mediocre versions of western dishes when the local vegan cuisine is so delicious?

Nevertheless, Bluesomeone is a cozy cafe worth visiting.

Pros: friendly staff, lovely dessert selection

Cons: Too strong air conditioning, brrr

Simple and feelibg - Edit

Bluesomeone's menu is limited but it will get the job done! With a small dinning area, about 8 tables or so, the restaurant has a simple menu that's all vegan. It's usually advised to get the set including, soup, a drink, entree and dessert. The desserts are not to be missed! If you live in the Taichung area or will be visiting for a little while, Bluesomeone's does sell vegan from a refrigerated chase right by the front door. Enjoy!

Pros: All vegan options, Amazing soy milk hot chocolate

Cons: limited menu, not great for large groups

Cozy yummy feel good food - Edit

full vegan restaurant. food choices are limited but more than enough for you to go oooo and ahhhhhhh.
had a dinner set. the rose soy milk was fragrant and really tasty. I wonder how they make it taste like milk tea. the shepherd pie had a good balance of taste and texture. it was light, didn't taste too heavy overall. I felt just perfect ans still had space for dessert!

Lovely vegan spot in Central Taichung - Edit

We love this cozy little spot and have been back twice in two days already, and we probably go again before we leave. Partly because there are little other vegan options in the centre of Taichung where we are staying near the station, but mostly because it's a very sweet place to have a drink and a bite to eat. We have tried a few flavours of the hot soy lattes (very velvety foamed milk, yum!) some cupcakes (faultless) and the quiche (nicer than anything I've made myself that's for sure!).

BLUESOME IS AWESOME - Edit

This place is full of the cutest people and nicest foods you can imagine. It is in line with current Taiwanese cross-over styles of traditional Chinese culture mixed with Japanese and European influences that you can find at small start-ups in food, textile and assecory retail all over the unique and beatiful island. Service is friendly and quick, food features great variety and is beautifully served&decorated! As the other reviewers mentioned, A MUST SEE IN TAICHUNG!!

Pros: inspiring&cute people and style, food thats pleasing to eyes and palate, quick service and affordable prices

Great Vegan Restaurant! - Edit

I don't have much to add because Nikki (previous review) has said it all already. Be sure to visit Bluesomeone's when you're in Taichung!
I just want to clarify about the name. This cafe used by be called Le Noir, and Bluesomeone's review is from this time (long before she became the new owner). From what Nikki said about the menu, I guess she visited just after it had changed to Bluesomeone's Restaurant but before Happycow was updated.

Pros: great vegan food, including desserts!, amazing range of drinks, old English pub style

Cons: limited food menu (for now) but enough

An absolute MUST in Taichung!! - Edit

This place is excellent, I'm so pleased it was on here and that we found it! The pin location is pretty accurate...
If you walk up Minquan Road (away from the train station!) once you get over the river, keep looking left up each street and you'll see it down a quiet side road,about 2 blocks up. The signage says 'Bluesomeones' vegan cafe but that is the right place!! :)
They mainly do drinks and cake, but they have a short food menu of about 5 dishes which I think change seasonally. There was shepherds pie, tofu mousaka, vegan cream risotto, tomato spaghetti and another risotto which was amazing!! They do savoury bacon/corn waffles too. The desserts were great and their hot chocolate was to die for ♥
The cafe is gorgeous- inside looks like a quaint european pub and the staff are so lovely and friendly- they even gave us cookies as a gift :) It's not the cheapest (everything is about 150-300 each) but its worth it!

NOTE- I think their hours are seasonal, so check their FB page before visiting. There was no 'set menu' or 'reservations required' when we visited but that may be a summer thing :)

Pros: Everything!!

Cons: Follow my instructions or you may not find it :)
