Narrow Door Cafe 窄門咖啡, Tainan

After the crazy oyster feasting at Cigu Lagoon (you can read in my previous post here), lunch is far from our mind but we certainly didn’t mind stopping by for coffee and thus made an impromptu stopover at a cafe. For our cafe loving Singaporeans, this cafe will be a novelty not because of their coffee but because of where it is location.

Hole-in-the-wall cafes like these aren’t many in Singapore, especially not one stuck in an old building. This cafe, Narrow Door Cafe, has the narrowest entrance to a cafe I’ve ever seen. If you didn’t notice, you may walk right past it without realizing it.


2F, No. 67, Nánmén Rd
Zhongxi District, Tainan City, Taiwan


This is the entrance, right there, and in a way, it is also unofficially discriminating people on the not so skinny side. We walked in holding our breathe and sucking our stomach for fear of an unimaginable embarrassing moment or worst, scoring an abrasion on our fat arms.


The entrance is not wider than half a metre and undoubtedly, such location will not pass the test of our SCDF (Singapore Civil Defense Force), can you imagine what will happen if there’s a fire? Haha.

But nonetheless, it is an interesting find!
