---By Ivy Shih Translated by Cara Steenstra

The world of coffee and tea shops has become increasingly competitive so that, without a little creativity, special attractions or reasonable prices, it is difficult to maintain a loyal customer base. On DaDun Road, there is a modestly-sized coffee shop featuring a bright cake stall and coffee bar with an ordering station. On first glance, it looked a bit like some sort of chain cafe. However, it was the second-floor European-style wooden windowpanes here that had always attracted my attention. The growing crowds in front of the store also aroused my curiosity about this cafe to the point where I finally stopped in for a look.

Bon Cafe's owner pays great attention to details, including the neat, nice service staff uniforms, the cutely-designed milk bottles, the simple yet attractive color-coordinated interior decor, the cleanliness of the surroundings, and the pleasantly-surprising quiet second-floor seating area. It is here that, with just a few steps, you are removed from the hustle and bustle of DaDun Road and into another world that somewhat resembles a not-so-commercialized version of Starbucks.
The second floor of Bon Cafe serves breakfast for NT$95 per person. This includes a choice of milk, coffee or tea, with scrambled eggs, fried eggs or omelet, served at the self-service bar. There is also the nicely color-coordinated salad bar and various attractive cakes for you to pick from.

This really is a great place offering good food for reasonable prices. During the rest of the day, when you're not eating, stop by and enjoy an Iced Coffee, a Caramel Macchiato or an Organic Sweet Orange Tea; most drinks are priced between NT$40 and NT$75.
