Could be one of the best brunch place in Taipei. It’s in a distant small alley in Neihu but still worth the travel. Also get impressed by the amazing “Queen Breakfast”. Portion is huge if only shared by two. Every ingredient is very healthy and...fresh! They also serve good coffee that you don’t want to miss. This place have become so popular that it’s hard to get a table. We were early birds came at 8am just for the food. Totally worth it and happy to do it again.More

Chanced upon this australia style cafe serving breakfast and brunch. Nice quality and service that matches with the others in taipei like diner, m one and oma deli. Sadly it’s a small group

Location: in the back alleys close to the mountain, come to have a bite if you have a) have time and b) are going for a hike. Food: portions are small, takes forever but the food and the coffee with almond milk, a rarity in...the city, are great. Awesome presentation. A solid western breakfast choice in Neihu neighbourhood. Service: slow but friendly Price: medium high for TPE standards.More

Went The Antipodean for an event, and I have to say that I was well-impressed. Decor is great, food good (sausage rolls... what’s not to like?!) and a selection of drinks that satisfied me, even though the bar list is not extensive. But what made...The Antipodean stand out for me was the waiter who greeted me when I arrived and served me a few times during the evening. This bloke made me feel welcome, took time to explain how to order and came back to me some time after realising that he’d given me incorrect info to apologise and update me with the facts. If I owned a cafe, this would be the first waiter I would be poaching. Head and shoulders above the norm in Taipei.More

Hands down to the best brunch spot in Taipei! I lick my plate every time I eat here. Superb dining experience and staff are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend the TA Big Breakfast and Açai Bowl!

Looking for a good BF place we ended up trying multiple restaurants and The Antipodean so far was the best! Reasonably priced, friendly staff and great food.... We will be back!

Traveling from Tianmu to this fine eatery in Neihu, we covered some distance but the food and drink we enjoyed there made the travel worthwhile. The brunch menu at The Antipodean features lots of wonderful food options, including a smoked salmon salad with avocado, baked...egg with avocado, grilled cheese with ham, and a la carte ordering of individual components you might combine for breakfast, like eggs, hashed browns, sausage, toast, etc. The coffees were strong and flavorful, and tea choices abundant. Service was a tad slow on Sunday morning at 10:00, although it was friendly.More
