Brunch is getting hit in Taiwan and there are way too many restaurants serving brunch now. From all that competition, The diner is my favorite. They serve authentic foods which we always need it on Saturday morning with a bit hangover or Sunday morning with Family. It is pretty classic american style breakfast but big portion which will heal your... More

Awesome brunch options on the go at this place. Multiple different eggs benedict options - quick service & delicious food. We had the eggs benedict with salmon & avocado and it comes with your choice of hash brown or potato with quinoa and salad. So so good. Only minor tiny complaint was the eggs which were slightly too far done... More

It took some time for us to decide what to order. And we finally decided to order the omelette and the French toast set. Both are delicious. Wanna visit again for other dishes.

Having reserved a table at the wrong location with eight people trying to have an American brunch was no problem at The diner. The service was really good and the menu was even better. Affordable prices with a lot of food on the plates. Everything to match your preferences- acai bowls, omelette, pancakes, Mexican and Italian food. They also have... More

Lovely atmosphere, great service if sometimes a bit rushed, and best of all great brunch selections. My Eggs Benedict were as good as they get, eggs slightly runny and real Canadian bacon on English muffins. Superb fresh orange juice and good coffee. My companion and I left feeling extremely satisfied. But as others have pointed out, on a Sunday you'll... More

This place is on some best brunch list for Taipei and it got its reason. Very fast and efficient service, big portions, refilling the coffee / tea and food itself is good. Nothing too fancy, but it corresponds with reasonable prices. Make a reservation, especially if going there over weekend.

If you desire a huge, well prepared Western style breakfast, then look no further than The Diner (Ruian Location). It is a 5min walk from the Technology Building Station - thru a nice residential area. Menu is just perfection and staff are extremely professional.

We stay just around the corner and although we've passed by the Diner on several occasions and it's always had a long waiting line outside. This evening we went by and there was no waiting line for once and we were immediately shown to a table. Throughout our meal, the staff were efficient, friendly, and spoke really good English. I...
