College freshman Si-ying has a part-time job at “Café. Waiting. Love” café, owned by a beautiful mysterious woman. There, she befriends Abusi, a tomboyish barista who can make any coffee no matter how ridiculous the customers’ request. She also develops a crush for Zeyu, a popular boy who always sits in the same spot. College senior A-Tuo comes to the cafe with his friends and runs into Abusi, who caused his breakup with his ex-girlfriend. A-Tuo’s friends tease him, but is saved when Si-ying stands up for him. They become fast friends and is introduced to his peers. 

Watched Cafe waiting love 等一個人咖啡 earlier on with Joe. I understand that this film has been screened in cinemas about 2 months and what took me so long to catch it? That is because I have decided to finish reading the novel before watching the film. As I read from somewhere, the story follows closely with the novel but with a slight difference in the plot. 

Personally, I felt the story was good and follows pretty closely to the novel. More characters were introduced in the book but due to time constrain, only some was mentioned. Certain scenes may not appear realistic in the show but its humour element spice up and cover those weaknesses. I was amazed by the story flow that was nicely crafted. To be honest, I was pretty touched in certain scenes as well.

As almost every scenes appeared similar to the novel; there was a twist towards the end which was different. I have to agree that the overall 'feel' was close to the novel. Also, the plot stands out better in the novel as compared. 

每一个人,都在等一个人。 等待一个,能看见妳与众不同的,那一个人。
