nice - Edit

They have Italian and Hong Kong style. The food was ok and it came with coffee that was ok. Nice place to sit near the window. Friendly service. The bakery items were amazing. I like the chocolate ones I tried. The chocolate bun near the register was awesome. Price was good. If you in the area why not go.
See this review too

Pros: great treats and vegan, price, service was good.

Better do the bakery than lunch - Edit

I took lunch here and without really understanding it, i got soup, Bread and a tea with my pasta. The soup and Bread were good, but I didn't really like the spaghetti with creamy pumpkinsauce, mushrooms and green bellpepper. It was really cold inside, strong A-C. I bought some bread afterwards to take home and that was tasty.

Pros: friendly, good bread

Great vegan bakery! - Edit

I dropped a spoon and 5 seconds later they brought me a new one without me even asking. That alone shows how good this place is

Pros: A lot of choices to chose from with no egg ingride, friendly service, pretty big restaurant

Cons: a little pricy but not that bad, no wifi

Great Bakery and Restaurant - Edit

I went to Kapok for lunch and ordered a set meal for 200 TWD. The meal included pesto rice with mushrooms, corn soup, a glass of iced tea, and jello/jelly (you have a choice of jello/jelly or bread). Overall the meal was great, although next time I think I'll order something other than the pesto, as I generally like pesto with a bit more flavor.

The menu was in English and Chinese. The service was incredibly friendly and prompt, despite having a very full restaurant at lunchtime on a Tuesday. The restaurant was also very cute.

For me, the most exciting thing about my visit was the baked goods for sale in the front of the store. I was full after lunch but couldn't resist getting something to go, and the vegan fish sandwich (50 TWD) really hit the spot when I was hungry later. If I lived near this restaurant I would be very fat, as I would stop in every day to buy baked goods.

Just a note, I had a bit of trouble finding Kapok. Different maps put the restaurant in different locations. I finally found the restaurant by walking directly south of the Technology Building MRT stop and then looking down streets to the right.

Best vegetarian spaghetti - Edit

I used to work close by and would always go there for dinner before my evening classes began. Even now, I would still go there once in a while although it's quite far away from where I work or I live. What I love the most is their bread, and surely spaghetti of course. In here, you don't need to worry about whether there's dairy products added to your dish, because they don't use them at all, not even on their bakery products. The only thing I don't really love is their service is not so professional.

Pros: cheap, good portion, great bread

Cons: service is not so professional, accepts cash only
