Located in a tranquil neighborhood near Fengjia (Fengchia) Night Market, this stylish coffee shop was opened by Mr. Hsu, who studied architecture in Britain. While the interesting Buddha Cafe name may express its purpose as a refuge for those seeking a peaceful place to rest their bodies and souls, this place also has a British rock-inspired twist added by the owner. --By Niang Chen, translated by Angel
In the heart of the bustling Fengjia (Fengchia) business district, Buddha Cafe's architectural combination of concrete, wood and eco-friendly materials is both attractive and unique.
