COMPASS MAGAZINE, March 2001. VOL.8 ISSUE 3

Taiwan Coffee Shops by Taiwan Fun - Corner coffee shop, Taichung

Corner
2, Lane 1, Shin Shing Road, Lungching Hsiang (township), Taichung County
Tel: (04) 2631-8706
Hours: 11 a.m. - midnight

Corner was the first coffee shop to open in Tung Hai Pieh Shu (villas), a thriving shopping and entertainment area above Tunghai University.  The unusual name comes from its location, on the corner of Shin Shing Road and Tung Yuan Lane.    

The décor of Corner is very unique. For example, you might find that you are sitting at an antique sewing table with seats made from cart wheels.  The food can also be unique. The manager of this coffee shop is from a tea-growing family, so tea leaves make up the ingredients of some of the food dishes, such as the oolong chicken (NT$200). 

The manager recommends the specially roasted chicken (NT250).  Its unique flavor comes from a number of ingredients, such as rosemary, basil, and various kinds of fruit.  The chicken is roasted twice, to allow the spices to penetrate the meat.  Other food selections include roasted eel (imported from Japan) and beef (imported from New Zealand).

If you are looking for a snack or dessert, there are waffles and carved sandwiches (from NT$40).  The tuna sandwich is especially good.  The coffee, brewed in house, is rich in flavor and guaranteed to satisfy even hard-core coffee drinkers.  For the nighttime crowd, there are a number of cocktails available. 

In this coffee shop, almost every knick-knack and even items on the menu have a story and history that await your discovery.  Who knows?  Maybe you'll take a story away with you. At the very least, Corner's unique but comfortable atmosphere is an enjoyable experience.
