I went Taipei to attend a wedding last November. Re-visiting Taiwan wasn’t on my travel plan last year, but since it’s a close friend’s wedding, I just had to tweak my plan a little. I took the chance to meet up some old friends whom I haven’t seen in years. A couple I’ve known has opened a cafe and retail store. The place wasn’t hard to find at all.
Doesn’t the sitting area looks cozy and feels like you can sit back and relax in it all day? I love natural sunlight in a cafe. While we were there the whole time, they didn’t switch on any lights at all. This is how brightly lit up the whole place was. The corner where my friend sat for hours and poured his heart and sweat to make shoes. The shoes can be customised at a very affordable price! A cafe and retail store in one. The kitchen was open concept.
Some of the items from other designers that were featured in their retail store. Nothing fanciful from the menu, which is why you don’t need to worry about oil or noise from their open concept kitchen. I was very at ease the whole time I was there. The lighting was too awesome that I had to take photos.
Since my last visit in November, my friends had since closed down this place to move on to a larger space. They are now newly opened in Shinlin! Do drop by for a visit if you have an afternoon to escape from the bustling city in Taiwan.
