Isn’t that formerly Odeon? Whatever happened to Odeon? They used to have friendly staff, great coffee, and lots of Belgian beers, of course.[/quote]
Odeon is ~25m down the orad from Bastille. Like everything in Taiwan, once 1 successful business starts you can pretty much guarantee that another and then another will open up next door upon which a price war will ensue. Then its whoever can cut the most costs to support a business that needs to be cheaper than everyone else.[/quote]
Right … and reduce the service to zero … :s[/quote]
Oh yeh… and don’t forget to order the “cheese plate”. Terrible is a too kind word when mentioning the food. I think all the ingredients have been replaced with local ones… and for me it ruined my experience there.
Would it really be so hard to get a range of quality cheeses in? I’m sure most of the clientele there would pay for it as they don’t appear in anyway to be the same crowd as those at the Taiwan Beer Bar. (Which I’d prefer to go to by the way, because at least they don’t try and be something they’re not!)
