It was a little difficult to find this place, but easy enough if you have a GPS. And upon arriving, it was well worth it! We had the chocolate chip pancakes and breakfast taco to share with two of us. The breakfast taco isn't very big but it was a good starter and the main star was the pancakes which came with Nutella and maple syrup on the side. The taco had housemade sausage and tomato salsa topped on it so that made it quite fresh.. the pancakes were amazing, with chocolate chips inside and Nutella and maple syrup on the side. The service could be a little better as for a Western style cafe with Western food, the staff could not speak English as well as I had expected. In addition, I think cash is the preferred method of payment as the waiter had never come across an American Express card before and looked quite perplexed when I handed mine to him. Other than these minor service issues, the breakfast was delicious and a good experience overall.

Visited here based on a local tourist book - it sounded interesting. The old American consulate has been transformed into a cinema, cafe and gift shop. We watched a local art film (Taiwanese) with English subtitles and it was amazing (Silent Teacher). It was a great way to understand cultural life and thinking in the short amount of time we had here.

The cafe is nice - hot chocolate and coffee was good but service was slow and it was expensive. The gift shop had some nice things.

If you're looking for western food, SPOT is a must.
From the day we tried the SPOT we ate here at least once a day. We kept finding things on the menu we wanted to try.

The service was very friendly and helpful-
The second day we had to wait 30 min for our french toast but we're on vacation, who cares. Plus it was amazing- well worth the wait.
The last day the kitchen was out of quite a lot which was disappointing because we'd gotten there at opening and it was our last day. (That probably saved us a lot of calories tho!)

We'll definitely be back on our next visit to Taipei!

Excellent food, big portions, convenient location! Friendly service but a little bit on the slow side.

We were looking for a place for breakfast. We read the good reviews for Spot and gave it a try. So glad we did. We ate breakfast and dinner there three times. If we lived in Taipei, we would be regulars. Decor and food made us feel like we were in Manhattan. Clean open kitchen with very impressive western menu. Every dish we had tasted excellent.
