About Us

OUR HISTORY

What does “M” in M-Cafe stand for? Massandra.

Massandra is a city in Crimea, known for its production of fortified wines and dessert.

The Massandra Winery was founded by Nicholas II, the Czar in 1894. From then on, Massandra became the exclusive winery that provided high-quality wines for the Russian royal family.

Nowadays, Massandra wines are popular among the buyers at Sotheby’s. In Taiwan, you can only find them at M Cafe.

Before turned into a restaurant, M Cafe was actually a cellar. Even after the renovation, we still keep the style of a cellar and maintain a room that preserves our finest collection of wines.

Among them all, the oldest wine was made in 1837.

M Cafe is not only a restaurant, a cellar, but also a small museum that displays a part of the history and culture of Russia.

Are you looking for a special gift to present to someone unique on their birthday or your anniversary?

Perhaps you can get a bottle of wine from a certain year corresponding to their birth year or your anniversary year from M-Cafe!
