Recently opened close to the Kaohsiung
Veteran's Hospital in SanMin District, Le Grand Nez
is a quaint little cafe that exudes a totally European
spirit. Renovated and designed by the owners, Mirek
and Mindy Juris, it has a comfortable atmosphere, relaxing
music and artwork by the Czech artist Alfons Mucha.
Although it is a little off the beaten path, it is well
worth the visit. They serve excellent European coffee
and a large selection of fruit teas and smoothies (ranging
from NT$59 to NT$120). Their food offerings include
quality, homemade, all-natural French cafe food such
as omelettes, crepes, salads and galettes (whole wheat
crepe-like pastries with a variety of delicious fillings).
Prices range from NT$69 to NT$120. All the food is prepared
by Mirek and Mindy, who take good food and good coffee
very seriously. Their food is also ovo-lacto vegetarian
friendly. Free internet service is available.
