On the busiest street of Dongshan District, Zhongxing Road(中興路), as well as enjoying the duck heads that are renowned far and wide, don’t forget to spend time inside Dongshan Farmers’ Association Coffee Cultural Hall(東山農會咖啡文化館). The building was originally a rice barn and mill in the Japanese Colonial Period. After being left idle, the space was given an active new role as the Coffee Cultural Hall, also known as Dongshan Rest Stop(東山驛站). In the inner courtyard, various vendors sell tasty snacks, attracting more people than any other place on Zhongxing Street at weekends and holiday times. As well as enjoying a cup of fine coffee in a leisurely way here, visitors can also learn about the history of coffee growing in the area and the coffee varieties from the information displays, as well as enjoy all the famous snacks of Tainan in one place. The Coffee Culture Center is not only a fine example of the active re-use of a historic building, it attracts crowds of people and has brought prosperity to the local shopping area.
