Bugcat Capoo (貓貓蟲咖波) is one of the most popular Taiwanese cartoon characters. A cute cross between a blue cat and a bug, created by Taiwan illustrator Yara (亞拉).

Bugcat Capoo has over 1.6 million followers on Instagram and celebrates its 10th anniversary this year in 2024.

One of cutest convenience stores in Taiwan you’ll ever see (and very ‘blue’ but in a good way), here is our guide to visiting the Bugcat Capoo 7-Eleven in Taipei.

Arriving at the 7-Eleven store

The shop is not difficult to spot – a lot of bright blue Bugcat Capoo branding has replaced the usual red, white and green exterior of this 7-Eleven.

Above the main entrance, there is a huge banner depicting Bugcat Capoo and DogDog, plus there is even a bright blue neon style Bugcat sign in the entrance window.

There are also several lit-up characters in the roof above the entrance – very cute!

One of the first things you notice as you get closer is the Bugcat Capoo themed cafe area inside plus a bevy of blue Bugcat merchandise – let’s get inside and take a closer look.

Inside the Bugcat Capoo 7-Eleven

We were cat-atonic when we first arrived – from the ceiling to cabinets, city cafe to check-out, Bugcat Capoo branding and little touches were all around.

This is not your typical Taiwan 7-Eleven, every surface has been branded Bugcat Capoo, with the merchandise section and branded cafe area the center-piece of the store.

We love the attention to detail – all of the chiller cabinets have Bugcat Capoo stickers or neon lights above them.

There is even an 8 foot long bright blue neon Bugcat sign at the rear of the store above the ready meal and chilled cabinets. Miaow!

Above the freezer section in 7-Eleven, Bugcat Capoo looks down at you upside down, with its cute paws waving at you, as DogDog and White Rabbit look on – this freezer section is literally very ‘cool’.

Look down below the counter where you pay and you’ll even see Bugcat and DogDog dressed up in 7-Eleven employee uniforms (we aren’t sure how they serve all that coffee though with their paws)!

Bugcat Capoo coffee and cafe seating area

Like all the most popular themed 7-Elevens in Taiwan, the Bugcat Capoo 7-11 has its own branded coffee cups and 7-Eleven cafe seating area. Alas, there is no 3D latte art but hey, what do you expect for NT$47 a cup (around £1.10 / $1.45 USD).

We sometimes find it quite hard to get a seat in the 7-Eleven Bugcat Capoo cafe. During peak times there can be a mix of people holding business meetings, doing selfies or just generally loitering. Some were even just there to use the microwave and eat their own food – cheeky!

The seating area has character faces on all the seats and tables – the 7-Eleven City Cafe coffee cups contain all your favourite Bugcat Capoo characters.

These coffee cups are exclusively available at this themed store – the outer cardboard sleeve where you hold it makes a great (and light) souvenir.

So far, we’ve also managed to find (and drink) exclusive 7-11 Snoopy, Mofusand and Ultraman coffee cups at Taipei 7-Elevens.

Bugcat Capoo Merchandise

As you would expect, there is a bounty of Bugcat Capoo merchandise to buy in this 7-Eleven (along with lots of other character merch like Sanrio Hello Kitty and Mofusand).

We really liked the fact all the merchandise shelving is shaped to look like a giant blue Bugcat Capoo, complete with huge cat ears.

We spent around 30 minutes in the store exploring and enjoying our coffees and in that time, we saw quite a few Bugcat merchandise purchases. One lady was even weighed down buying two huge plushies!

The prices of Bugcat Capoo goods varies but you could buy purses for around NT$200 and the coffee cup stoppers for just over NT$100 – the larger plushies were a LOT more expensive though.
