Bruncheon Diner is a bright, clean and spacious establishment offering inexpensive, but top-rate, brunches. Owner Mr. Chang, who previously helped manage a high-end Taipei hotel, says that he aims to provide creative, high-quality meals that will attract diners who enjoy a stylish lifestyle themselves.
All brunch sets here include a cup of soy milk, milk or orange/grape juice, plus all-you-can-drink coffee and Lupicia tea with a varied selection of entrees such as hamburgers, pasta dishes and soups. Surprisingly, these carefully-prepared, tasty meals only cost you NT$120. The restaurant has over 20 entrees that are changed every 10 days, allowing diners to sample different types of cuisine, ranging from French, American and German to Mexican. Evening set meals, all NT$350, include choices like Boneless Beef Short Ribs, Thick Fried Garlic Pork Ribs, and Cream Bacon and Shrimp Rice.
