A success from the day it opened, Second Floor Cafe was a dream come true for its young owner. Today, he has expanded on that dream by opening Mini Second Floor Cafe in Neihu. Despite the high-tech industry downturn, this new establishment has been fully booked daily from morning to evening. The four-floor cafe has a homey, county-style decor with the added option of open-air dining on the rooftop patio. As Mini Second Floor Cafe is an American-style eatery, food portions are more than enough, and the extensive menu includes appetizers, sandwiches, hamburgers, pastas, flavored rice dishes and other entrees. Brunch and kids' meals are also available all day long. One nice touch: kids meals are always served first so that parents can feed their offspring before getting their own meals. --Written and translated by Diva Yang, photos by Andy Lin
A. The latest menu addition is the Mexican Burrito (NT$230), which can be ordered three ways: with grilled shrimp, smoked chicken, or bratwurst. Spicy food lovers can add some salsa and jalapeno peppers for extra kick.
B. The Focaccia Sandwich (NT$220) can be made with salmon, smoked chicken and vegetables. It comes with a side dish of french fries, potato sticks or hash browns. To ensure you never go hungry here, the cafe offers those with big appetites the option of a set meal upgrade, for NT$90 or more, with daily soup, bread and a drink.
