     Ken He, the owner of this cute, little open-air cafe, situated at the intersection of Dong Xing (Dung Shing) Road and Dadun 11th Street, started out two years ago with a cafe-on-wheels concept. This very distinctive portable cafe uses an Austin Mini car, towing a cafe trailer created from half of another Mini. While Mr. He's popular portable cafe continues to make its rounds of the island, he recently opened another fixed-location cafe. In keeping with his unconventional approach, he utilized a small, forgotten strip of land between two buildings. This has been landscaped to include a wood and stone deck, an overhead lattice with retractable roof, lots of flowers, and a pleasant grassy lawn. There are 10 tables and 40 chairs spread around, including a back, outside area with umbrella-shaded tables. The menu is simple, but good and reasonable. Coffees range from the NT$35 Americano to the NT$65 Cappuccino, and there are lattes, espressos, and herbal, fruit and milk teas. Beer will be added soon, too. For food, there are waffles various sandwiches and three breakfast specials, starting with the NT$60 waffle and Americano "A" special. Delivery and take-out orders are also accepted.
