On New Years Day in Taipei, we celebrated the start of 2010 with brunch at a popular little place called Second Floor Cafe in the Da-An district.

Second Floor Cafe is the type of place you would go on a Saturday morning for a nice big brunch.  It sells the type of food many cafe-style establishments in Western countries sell, such as sausages, eggs, bagels, sandwiches, juices, teas, coffees – you know the type.

They also serve breakfast, lunch and dinner as well on weekdays.

Even though Second Floor Cafe has a second floor, it actually has a first floor as well.  The decor is simple but warm, with book shelves filled with English novels, TVs playing DVDs of English shows and movies, and pretty little pictures hanging on the walls.

This is the nicest seat at Second Floor Cafe

As for the food – well, it’s not super-fantastic, but it’s good enough for a place of this type.  To be honest, I didn’t expect a small Taiwanese cafe to serve food of this quality.  Consider me pleasantly surprised.

Of course, the servings are massive, and like most places we visited in Taipei, the prices are very reasonable.

Check it out below.

In addition to the massive meal, you also get soup

In your set brunch, you can get coffee, tea or fresh juice

Smoked Salmon bagel and fries

You can even get a hot dog!

The verdict?  Not a must-visit, but you are missing good quality Western food in Taipei, I would definitely recommend Second Floor Cafe.  7.5 out of 10!

How to get there

There’s no easy way to get to Second Floor Cafe unless you take a cab.  If you take the MRT, you’ll have to get off at the Zhongxiao Dunhua stop (on the blue line) and walk south along Dunhua South Road, past the big roundabout.  It’s in one of the lanes near Dong Fang High School of Industry and Commerce.
