As usual, I went to Happy Hair for my monthly hair spa early in the morning and I decided to have my lunch at Maru Cafe.  I walked pass this cafe all the time but had never give it a try.

On a Saturday afternoon, it was so quiet in the tiny mall but yet it was busy at Maru Cafe, waffles, coffees, orders from the salon and massage place.

They have a large selection on coffee, no kidding … 2 pages of coffee.  My friend ordered her Vanilla Latte (TWD $160) while I am trying out the Melon Chocolate (TWD $160).

The Melon chocolate took me by surprise it had a very strong Melon flavor and which went harmonious with the chocolate, the wipe cream was smooth and milky.  My first sip of melon chocolate and I will never forget what it tastes like.

Our dessert of the day was the mango overload waffle (TWD $200). This scrumptious waffle had a big blob of ice cream and tones of mangoes .  The sweet sweet mango in Taiwan is definitely a highlight compare to those tasteless ones I used to have in New Zealand.  The mochi.  It was my first time trying out the mochi waffle and love it.  It remained soft and chewy even when it was cold.
