Best Brunch Spots in Kaohsiung, Taiwan

Kaohsiung is definitely a foodie paradise, especially if you love Chinese food. However, if you need your western brunch fix once in a while, then you can find plenty of nice brunch places around town. During our 2-month stay in Kaohsiung last year, we tried a couple of nice spots, and in this blog post, I would like to share them with you! 🙂

So, without further ado, let’s start the list!

Magic Spoon

Magic spoon brunch

Our favorite place to get brunch by far is Magic Spoon. It’s a cute little spot run by a friendly Canadian guy, and they have the best pancakes we’ve tasted! He also makes cupcakes and homemade ice-cream, which is really good as well. And of course, they have maple syrup!

Address: No. 15, Changsheng Street, Qianjin District

Opening Hours: 7AM – 3PM  (Closed on Wednesdays)

Price Range: $$

Must-try: Everything, basically. But definitely try the pancakes!

Eggs Benedict

If you’re up for a slightly more fancy brunch, then this brunch spot at the Art Pier is the place to be. It’s a very nice restaurant and they serve some awesome eggs benedict.

描Cafe X 屋 Brunch

The rosetta egg!

This cute brunch place/cat cafe makes lovely looking eggs, that are almost too pretty to eat. They serve you a pretty neat brunch selection, along with fries and croissant! It’s not really a traditional brunch, but the egg was so lovely and quite delicious as well. If you love cats then you’re in luck because there are a few roaming around the cafe.

Din Tai Fung

Din Tai Fung Dim Sum

Of course, you can’t go to Taiwan and not try Dim Sum, which is their equivalent of Brunch. Din Tai Fung is a Dim Sum chain, and actually one of the few chains that has been awarded a Michelin star. If you love dumplings, buns and other Cantonese treats, then this is the place for you! Also try the chocolate Xiao Long Bao; they are surprisingly good!

Matcha Pancakes

If you’re up for a slightly different brunch experience, then try this cute Japanese cafe in the Gushan district. We loved the Matcha pancakes with Matcha cream and azuki beans. So good! The pancakes were soft and fluffy and the match cream so rich! They also make decent coffee and have great Japanese teas.

Price Range: $$$

Must-try: The Matcha pancakes
