Western Breakfast in Taichung

Postby SlowRain » 25 Dec 2010, 22:39

What are some good places for a Sunday breakfast/brunch in Taichung? I already know about Finga's and The Early Bird Diner. Any other suggestions?

Gordon Biersch - http://www.gordonbiersch.com.tw/contactus-tc_en.php - has a Saturday and Sunday breakfast/brunch that is pretty good. Nice ambience. Coffee refills included. And the beer is good too, if a little pricey.

Beer with breakfast. Sounds delicious.

Apparently, the Londoner is starting up weekend brunches, although it doesn't open until 11:00.

Good to know that there is a Gordon Beirsh in Taichung, I've got two weeks coming up there in late May and I think I'm gonna be going solo quite a bit so outside of the Starbucks right around the corner I haven't seen any Western Style places to grab breakfast. It's not that I ever crave Western food because my wife's family eats quite well and those night markets are incredible but certainly some good to keep in the back of my mind.
Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

Their bagels are very, very good. However, I can't say the same for their coffee, pancakes, ham, or pasta. For people going there for the first time, hedge your meal with a bagel in case the other orders aren't to your liking.

There's a foreign-run breakfast store diagonally across from the 7-11 in DaKeng that does easily the best breakfasts I've ever had in my life. No exaggeration! Bit far out of town, though.
