Located inside Aeon Style Huangpu, Komeda’s Coffee store will adopt traditional Japanese architecture. Nagoya, considered to be the fountainhead of Japanese cafe culture, has been home to  Komeda’s Coffee since 1968.

With a history of over 50 years, Komeda’s Coffee is an old Japanese coffee shop chain with stores scattered throughout Asia-Pacific. Not only do they have plenty of branches in Japan, they now have up to 33 stores in Taiwan and Shanghai, with Taiwanese stores expanding into Taipei, Taichung, Tainan and Kaohsiung.
