A & J Cafe', also known as BowknotAJCAFE, is celebrated for having the best coffee in Hsinchu. Only a mile from the Hsinchu Fish Harbor (新竹漁港), this shop is unique for having several containers linked together in spectacular fashion.
Inside, people can take a beautifully crafted spiral staircase up to the second floor and enjoy the decorations and artwork on the wall. It's another one of those great places to bring a laptop and spend a few hours immersed in web surfing and caffine.
Outside, there is also a lot of intricate design, both arcitecturally and with the landscape. Whoever does the gardening and shrub work deserve a medal for dedication to their craft. It really is quite scenic.
Finally, the staff is very friendly and welcoming to new customers. Spend a few hours at A & J Cafe' and then take a walk to the ocean, which is only a 10-minute stroll away.
