Some passers-by initially mistake this relaxed, lounge-ish, glass-walled building facing the Calligraphy Greenway (near Hotel National) for an upscale furniture shop. In reality, How Place (a play on Chinese word for "good") is a chilled-out all-day brunch restaurant/cafe that transforms into a nightspot when it gets dark. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Angel Pu

A. There are 11 NT$150-200 brunch options (including vegetarian). One first picks a main course, from the Smoked Salmon to German Sausage (pictured), followed by a choice of side dish, bread (including bagel), eggs, salad and drink (such as organic fruit juice). There are plenty of other drinks, from coffees to French Hediard-brand teas, plus a la carte pasta dishes, sandwiches and snacks.

B. Customers can relax on and around a creative variety of tables, chairs and sofas inside, plus an outdoor balcony area.

How PlaceC. In the evenings, How Place becomes a watering hole, offering beers (NT$150-180) and cocktails (NT$180-250).
