Midsummer Night: A Place to Warm Your Heart and Titillate Your Taste Buds after Dark

If you’re looking for a simple dinner in a simple eatery after a hard day at work in the office, a bowl of egg rice and hot coffee sure is comforting.  Based on the theme of retro movies and serving food resembling the menu of the Japanese manga “Midnight Canteen”, the warm rice and inviting ambience of Midsummer Night cafe beckons and make you feel like you too have a story tell.

The interior design of this café is simple but has a retro feel. Cozy and relaxing, it resembles the home style cafés in Taiwan. The café itself is an old house, with a small painting room where photography exhibitions are held occasionally. With paintings and artworks displayed everywhere, this little cafe has an ‘artsy’ feel to it.

The café is named “Midsummer Night” as its owner likes summer the best out of the four seasons. Besides, customers can easily link it to Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and allow their imagination to take over while in the cafe!

When it first opened, the cafe offered coffee, flower tea and cakes only. But after the business became more stable, its owner started serving simple Japanese food such as egg rice, butter seaweed rice and udon noodles. After this, customers started to increase day after day much to the owner’s delight. According to the owner, sometimes there are just too many customers making it difficult for him to serve each customer personally. His wish is to chat more with every customer but he’s too busy most of the times and thus does not have the opportunity to do so.
