--By Douglas Habecker, translated by Liu Fang Ru

Probably more than any other establishment in town, Sun Cafe truly resembles a sidewalk French cafe--the kind tourists love along the Champs Elysees. Situated on a corner about 20 meters from the intersection of WenXin South and WenXin South 2nd roads, this open-air cafe has big red canopies, cushioned rattan-like chairs, small tables covered with white linen tablecloths, interior carpets, a small coffee bar and smart-looking waiters. In another unprecedented touch, Sun Cafe is entirely staffed by foreign language teachers--from Japan, Korea, Spain, Italy, France, the U.S. and elsewhere--who work at the Sun Cafe language center across the street. The idea is to to provide students and the general public with a nice atmosphere to not only eat and drink, but also practice the seven foreign languages and Chinese that the school teaches. Better yet, any order--including the NT$99 all-you-can-drink coffee--gets you a free class session at the school. The cafe's regular menu--prepared by a French chef and his staff--includes NT$180-200 combos that include soup, fruit, bread and a drink with main courses like Curry Chicken, Grilled Lasagna, and American Breakfast Combo. There are also single-order dishes like Bruschetta/French Salad with Cheese, Salade Parisienne, and Assorted Cheese Plate (NT$120), plus plenty of coffees, teas, wines, beer (NT$90), juices, and snacks like Apple Crumble, Crepes with Chocolate, and Upside-Down Caramelized Apple Tart. A Japanese restaurant will soon open in the basement, too.
