A. One of four dining options, the German Pancake (NT$320) is a uniquely-tasty invention featuring a fresh-baked soft, but slightly-crunchy, bread bowl filled with a healthy grilled chicken salad topped with apple vinaigrette dressing. All four meals come with a side salad, soup, dessert and drink.
B. The spacious, relaxing interior, including a big open kitchen, is designed to be environmentally-friendly, with recyclable metal floor panels and light wood tables.
C. The Berry Pot (NT$280) is another healthy creation that also features a bread bowl filled with various wild berries, topped with custard.
