Craving a good authentic western breakfast? Maybe in a relaxed diner-style environment with Brian Adams and other nostalgic 80’s rock hits playing on the radio? Well, look no further than Taipei’s G’day Cafe.
Taiwan offers plenty of local options when it comes to breakfast or a weekend brunch. Some options, such as morning hamburgers, even come pretty close to meeting the definition of “Western food”. However, every now and again one finds himself yearning for a good old fashion Western breakfast, the kind he grew up on, and G’day Cafe has just that!
As soon as you step into G’day Cafe, you will feel as though you have been transported to a diner in North America, or perhaps a cafe in Australia as the name suggests.
English (and Chinese) newspapers can be found stacked at the entrance for customers to read, and you will probably spot a number of patrons indulged in English books while enjoying their Eggs Benedict and coffee.
Chances are, the friendly waitstaff that greet you at the door may even speak English better than they speak Chinese.
G’day Cafe has an easy to navigate menu, with all the western favourites listed in both English and Chinese, and accompanied by photos so that you know just what to expect. A pen and order sheet will be brought over once you sit down, and you simply tick off what you would like to order.
G’day offers all types of breakfasts, like your standard eggs, toast, bacon, sausage, and hash browns, or the fancier Eggs Benedict, good southern style breakfast burritos, Canadian lumberjack breakfasts of pancakes, eggs, and beacon, as well as other meal options such as sandwiches, burgers, daily soups, and a Mexican/Italian section with pastas and fajitas.
Hot coffee and tea comes with free refills (self-service) and there is also a selection of soft drinks and beer for those with a liking for carbonation.
There is no reason to get homesick for western breakfasts while in Taipei, they have you covered at G’day Cafe.
