No.20, Zhongxing St., Xinshe Dist., Taichung City 426, Taiwan (R.O.C.)
Once upon a time, two coffee-loving, herb-loving young women loved to draw and record their feelings in music as they travelled. Tired after working for years in the huge cities of Taipei and Kaohsiung, they decided to quit their jobs and start new lives as farmers. They bought a hill in the middle of nowhere, where even a cell phone signal was hard to come by. And there they toiled growing lavender, their dream of a hillside coffee shop surrounded by lavender always in the front of their minds. After years of hard work, the dream was realized. And thus, Lavender Cottage was born.
While this is no Provence, Lavender Cottage is one of the coziest, cute and relaxing little places you can find in Taichung. Somehow, the purple decorations dotted around the pretty little garden make the grass seem even greener. The food here is not bad either- removing your shoes to sit under a parasol outdoors is a perfect way to experience afternoon tea. And when you’re done, the little market selling lavender products, such as soap and bath power, are enough to tickle your nose sweet. This is a wonderful place to buy and send a postcard to someone special.
Flower Bloom Seasons: November~April - lavender, June~August - salvia
