Fujin Street, a quaint little road close to the Taipei Songshan Airport, is full of stylish surprises – Woolloomooloo being one of them. Open plan, big communal tables, soft lighting, minimal service, delicious coffee. It’s the kind of place that has me lingering for a long long while.

The only thing I don’t like about Woolloomooloo is that it can get a bit stuffy with the crowd on weekends.

Luckily we were seated in a spacious area next to a huge open window, with breezy afternoon air flowing in and out.

The menu, very cute if you can understand Chinese. 一滴奶咖啡露,寶貝泡泡奶,牛奶少一點咖啡,牛奶多一點咖啡…:)

My caffe latte (120 NTD), too adorable.

I was sad to deform its face…

I tried a piece of their lemon cake (120 NTD) and were unimpressed. Perhaps the tiramisu and the cheesecake, as recommended by the waitress, would be the better choices.

Wifi password, haha.

Love the light bulbs at Woolloomooloo.

I heard good things about the food at Woolloomooloo though I didn’t have a chance to try them this time. A great reason to come back to this enchanting little place.

  2. How was brunch? I heard pretty good things about it, except the portions are small.

  3. Just like the way the letter ‘o’ seems to reproduce each time you read its name, Woolloomooloo (think I got it) has engineered a second reincarnation. Although I’ve yet to visit its original, this one appears to be bigger and shows the promise to be even better than the first. Its OJ, scrambled eggs and coffee – basic yet key determinants of detail and quality – would hold serve against the city’s competition (although my ‘cap’ got the leaf rather than the cute doll face, as above).

    What’s more, newsies/journos, architects, artsies, artsy-wannabes and others would find this an easy landing, with its touch of home and quaintness, carving a little piece of oasis in an area akin to a daunting commercial desert. As one of the above, I look forward to my second, third, fourth visits – if not for the balcony, then to test the water pressure of the shower in the restroom.
