[Taipei] We first visited JJ Lin’s Miracle Coffee at Neihu District, Taipei, and loved its decor and range of coffee choices such as hand drip, Americano, latte and cappuccino. (Also read: 12 Best Cafes In Taipei)
That coffee shop was located right next to his production studio.
The local singer has opened a 2nd outlet at Taipei’s East District 東區, a few minutes’ walk from Dunhua Station (Exit 7).
This Miracle Coffee store is part of JJ’s SMUDGE concept store, which will also sell merchandise under the SMG brand (SMG stands for “Still Moving Under Gunfire” which is an e-sports organisation founded by JJ Lin as well.)
Following the success of its Shanghai store opening in 2019, SMUDGEstore Taipei keeps the store aesthetics and selected merchandise are in sync with the first outlet.
While the Shanghai outlet serves predominantly drinks on its menu, the Taipei store up its game with food offerings.
However, there is no reservation allowed, and meal times are restricted to 2 hours.
Some of JJ Lin’s celeb friends have already visited the café, including Jay Chou, Jam Hsiao, Harry Chang and Jimmy Lin – who doesn’t look like he has aged a day since the last time I bought his CD.
Brunch food served will include Souffle Omelette, Sloppy Joe, Pork Ribs and Maple Chicken Bacon and Waffles.
Also look out for an SMG Soft Serve Ice Cream exclusively available only from 2pm to 6pm. The two introductory soft serve flavours include Honey Lemon and Brown Sugar Hojicha.
Long queues expected, do mask up and maintain social distance.
