Delicious but pricey - Edit

Really great food, easy service. Staff speaks English well. Food on the pricier side of things from what I've seen so far but really wonderful variety and flavors

Yum! - Edit

Ok before you head out to this place...You should know that the pin here is wrong. We had to walk back several blocks to be able to find it. Look for BURGER KING. The entrance to the restaurant is between that and Hang Ten Outlet. *check the photo of the entrance that I uploaded here.

Had a nice conversation with the owner of Blossom Rena last night. She is same owner of Sophie’s Garden which was the oldest and first vegan restaurant in Taipei. Everything, as expected, was very good! My favorite though was the vegan crème brûlée 😋😋😋

March 2018 Visit - Edit

It has a fairly nice interior with a relatively warm woody type of atmosphere. It has quite a few tables so it should be able to accommodate larger parties.

However I probably wouldn't go here again:
-The service seemed slow
-They forgot/took too long with part of my order
-They brought the food out in what I'd consider the wrong order (I consider this a minor issue)
-The English menus have no descriptions, pictures, or prices.
-The taco (sort of tacos?) was ok, but seemed quite expensive for the size
-The salad was more reasonable but it was still pricey and wasn't very good in my opinion. It had a strange slightly sweet fruity taste and seemed to have too much fruit (I think?) and not enough hummus (it was a hummus salad). I don't normally order salad but i"m pretty sure the Salads I've had at a restaurant like oh cha cha were much better.

It was simply too pricey for the amount of food and how it tasted (and the quality of the service) in my opinion and I think there are better options.

Depends on your taste - Edit

First of all: the happy cow map pin is in the wrong place! You have to copy the address into Google, otherwise you're not going to find it.

The interior is quite nice, it's a very cozy place to sit for a while. I was there with two people, they ordered the curry steak and the oyster mushrooms as set menus. The curry stake was fantastic, the oyster mushrooms are nicely prepared, with a crispy crust of thyme, but I'd say they're not for everyone.
The sides are partly oily and cold, not in a really bad way, just in a I'm - paying-400NT-per-set kind of slightly unsatisfactory way.
I had the waffles and a smoothie. The smoothie was delicious, but too small for the price. The waffles looked quite fancy, tasted nice and crisp, albeit a bit dry.
There is an English translation for the menu, but without prices, so it's easier to have the staff explain you the Chinese menu.
All in all a very pleasant discovery if you know what to order.

💯% recommend - Edit

I had just arrived in Taiwan and reading the Happy Cow reviews, paid this place a visit.

It was wonderful! Food was fresh and delicious, had a tempeh salad. And coffee was better than any soy latte that I've had in Australia...!!

Sophie the owner was extremely friendly and helpful and clearly puts lots of love & care into the place and the food. Thank you!

Pros: Great good, Lovely atmosphere, Caring and helpful owner

wonderful cappuccino and cake - Edit

I loved Sophie’s restaurant and the love and passion she puts in searching for the right and healthy ingredients and in her cooking.
The food is really good and the cappuccino with organic soy milk was wonderful. It did not even need any sweetner (and I like Sweet) the vegan chocoloate cake was to die for! Yum! And I also loved the soy yoghurt with passion fruit.
The menu will be in English soon but Sophie will explain everything to you

Pros: coffee, dessert, organic vegan

Delicious food and top notch service! - Edit

It's not easy dining out being gluten-intolerant in this city. Thankfully the staff at Blossom Rena were knowledgeable and very helpful (which is hard to come by!). This little jewel offers delicious and whole vegan dishes. I had the kimchi tofu rice, it was flavourful and satisfying. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Amazing food and vibe - Edit

I enjoyed everything we ordered here. We had the ciabatta sandwich, kimchi tofu rice, Mexican sofritas pasta, waffles, fries, and deep-fried eggplants. I love the pasta and the kimchi tofu rice particularly. The waffles were also really good, served with vegan whipped cream and some fruits on top.

The restaurant has a nice and cozy vibe, and the staff is very friendly. No English menu is available at the moment, but the staff can explain and help you figure out what to order.

Pros: food, vibe, staff

Sophie's Garden is Back - Western Food with a Taiwanese Twist - Edit

Anyone who's been around Taipei for long enough will remember Sophie's Garden, one of the first vegan restaurants in Taipei. It served delicious set meals which at the time were famous all over Taiwan, it being almost the only fully-vegan restaurant in the country at the time.

Blossom Rena is effectively the new Sophie's Garden. It serves similar set meals, and also some snack foods, catering to the emerging young vegan market. Sophie lived in France, and her food is among the most authentic European food in Taipei.

The inside is stylish and funky. If you are looking for a nice, moderately-expensive Western meal out Blossom Rena is a very good option.

Pros: Good European food!, Nice interior, and good location
