Second Floor Cafe Breeze Taipei Station 貳樓餐廳 微風台北車站店
Second Floor Cafe Breeze Taipei Station 貳樓餐廳 微風台北車站店 Review
I’ve seen that there’s always a line for this place at Taipei Main Station and finally went to check it out. The portion sizes at Second Floor Cafe are pretty big, so 1 meal without any sides or appetizers. Second Floor Cafe Breeze Taipei Station (貳樓餐廳 微風台北車站店) also includes a vegetarian menu with many items to choose from.
The ambiance of the place is pretty hip, but since it’s always packed here it’s going to be to loud to actually work here as a cafe. I’m not sure why it’s so popular though, but I guess Second Floor Cafe is the best American style food cafe at Taipei Main Station.
Second Floor Cafe Breeze Taipei Main Station (貳樓餐廳 微風台北車站店) serves pretty average American food at American prices. Not surprising, there will be a 10% service charge to your meal so most meals will be north of NT$300.
Worcestershire Sauce Beef Burger
I got the Worcestershire sauce beef burger at Second Floor Cafe Breeze Taipei Main Station (貳樓餐廳 微風台北車站店) and it was just okay. The actual chili, toppings and bun were done pretty well, but the actual beef patty was disappointing. It’s the type of patty you can get at the supermarket and they definitely cooked it without defrosting it, causing the patty to be super dry with a rubbery texture.
4/5 French Fries
Price: (Included with burger)
The fries at Second Floor Cafe Breeze Taipei Main Station (貳樓餐廳 微風台北車站店) were pretty decent. Very crispy and seasoned well.
2/5 Thai Milk Tea Shake
This didn’t taste like a thai milk tea at all. The shake at Second Floor Cafe Breeze Taipei Main Station wasn’t mixed very well. There was a large chunk of unmixed ice cream right in the center. They used chocolate ice cream in the shake which overpowered any other flavor in the drink, which is why I couldn’t taste any Thai style milk Tea.
3/5 Citrus Danish Toast
French fries, hash brown, salad, ham, and Danish toast. I haven’t had Danish toast before, but it was like a light version of French toast with a crispy crust served with syrup and some other type of sauce.

Money In Taiwan
Tax Is Included In The Price
All displayed prices in Taiwan are the actual price. Tax is already included and for large purchases, tourists visiting Taiwan can get a 5% Taiwan VAT refund at the airport Tax Refund counter. Some shops offer this service too, but they will require your passport.
Taiwan Is Cash Only (For Most Small Shops)
The primary payment method for all transactions in Taiwan is cash. It’s very rare for small shops to take anything other than cash. It’s more common to see places accept the Taipei Metro Card as payment rather a credit card.
Supermarkets and convenience stores in Taiwan (7-Eleven, Family Mart) do not accept credit cards (at least not American credit cards). You can only make purchases by cash or by using your pre-loaded funds on your EasyCard.
