A capybara café has been going viral since it opened in Taipei, Taiwan just over a year ago

Capybara Knight, which is located along Yulin Street in Tucheng District, has attracted plenty of attention for its friendly creatures.

Although the main attraction goes to the two adorable large rodents, who swim, chill, and wander around the premises, the café is also home to a duck, a cat, a dog, and two rabbits.

For a small fee, you can feed and play with the capybaras for around 10 to 15 minutes per slot

Previous visitors reviewed that the capys are pretty chill and friendly, allowing you to snap photos with them. And sometimes they even roll over on their backs so you can rub their bellies!

If you feel peckish, the café also sells food and drinks, with some dishes adorably made on theme

The café also has a section where it sells capybara merchandise such as totes, key chains, cups, and plushies, among others, if you'd like to take home a souvenir to remember your little outing.

According to reviews, it costs around TWD100 (about RM15) for you to play and feed the capybaras for 10 minutes. 

It is highly advised that you make a reservation before heading there or visit on a weekday, as the place can get pretty busy on weekends.

Here's where Capybara Knight is located:

18, Alley 2, Lane 61, Yuanlin St,
Tucheng District, New Taipei City

Opening hours
10am – 1pm; 2pm – 5.30pm (Daily)
