--By Pieter, translated by Annie Liu

For more than 3 years, Kaohsiung residents have been enjoying the beautiful sunsets over Sitzewan Bay from the terrace of Oceanside Cafe. And yet, few people seem to know about this place - possibly due to its location. To get there, drive through JhongShan University, sticking as close to the ocean as possible. Once through the university, and on ChaiShan Road, simply keep going until you see the sign.

Owners Jose and Anna have turned the outside area of Anna's parents home into an amiable coffee shop, where one can get out of the city's noise, sit back and enjoy Jose's magic coffee mixes. From French Vanilla to Caramel Macchaito (from NT$60), coffee lovers are sure to appreciate his passion for making the perfect cup. They also have a range of other hot and iced drinks, including teas and cocoa (from NT$60) and even homemade lemonade (NT$70). Plus, they offer local and imported beers at a very affordable NT$70.

As an eatery they serve fast foods exclusively, but don't think that means it's not good. Meals like the Curry Chicken with rice (NT$180) are served with a drink, soup and some fruit. Vegetarian meals are available. Their snacks include chocolate waffles (jam, honey or caramel), fresh bagels and Mexican favourites like Burritos or Quesadillas (from NT$70).

Oceanside Cafe's biggest appeal is its view and atmosphere. They are a popular (and perfect) choice for wedding receptions (many couples go there to take wedding pictures), sundown parties and group events. Customers are allowed to bring their own alcohol (no beers), for which a corkage fee may be charged. However, holidays and weekends are their busiest times, so they cannot accommodate groups during these times. If it is a different dining experience you are after, they are definitely worth a try.
