It’s one of the cheapest cafes you’ll find in Taipei, and is usually very popular because of this. The larger branches tend to attract students, as there are usually charging ports available.

The branches do vary considerably in size, and there are many that have little or no seating. The smaller Louisa cafes also tend to have a limited food menu, with some only having sandwiches available.
