Out of Office – Huge Cafe Ideal for Working

One of the largest cafes in Taipei (that isn’t a Starbucks or Mr Brown), Out of Office is a huge space with loads of tables ideal for working or simply enjoying a drink.

Out of Office

Ideally situated right next to exit 1 of the City Hall MRT station, from the outside, it doesn’t look anything special.

But after you walk down the steps into the basement, you’ll appreciated the vastness of the space here. With over 30 tables of all shapes and sizes, some are perfect for working, while other areas are designed for a relaxing drink.

If you’re looking for a cafe that’s almost guaranteed to have some free tables available, I’m not sure if there’s a better one in Taipei. Although the tables in the centre don’t have charging points available, there are some around the edges which do.

Out of Office serve the usual drinks found in other cafes, and also sell some cocktails and craft ales from 55th Street. There’s quite a large food menu too, consisting of brunches, salads, burgers and sweet items including cakes.
