Country Mother's used to have two locations: one on Bo'Ai Street in downtown Hualien, which has closed, and the remaining one in Meilun. The Bo'Ai location had good food for lunch and dinner (I especially liked the burgers), and the Meilun location has always served acceptable breakfast. I'm not sure what happened in the last year or two, but the... More

The omelette was delicious, but the eggs benedict needed more hollandaise sauce. The service was really good and the restaurant is dog friendly. We will be coming back when we are in town.

Just so you know, there's two Country Mother's in Hualien... If you're in the mood for breakfast, which you should be, you'll have to go to the one not on Bo' ai St. The other one is on the same street as the Starbucks, continue straight up that street past the McDonalds... Keep straight up the winding road until you... More

We went here for lunch on our third day in Hualien. The menu has English subtitles, and vegetarian options are clearly marked. The food is generally western -- pizzas, pastas, etc. We each had a calzone, which was quite good (though my salad did have bacon bits mixed in). Also, the passion fruit yogurt drink was excellent. The second-story eating... More

I can't really comment on the food. I have been sitting here for over an hour! The wait staff seem thoroughly lost & confused. They are wandering around trying to match dishes with customers. It's a farce! Pity, it got such good reviews...

Been to the restaurant a number of times always enjoyed their Caesar salad and Calzone. The staff is always friendly and outdoor seats allow you to eat and watch the world go by.

Nice atmosphere, quiet neighborhood, good service, great food. Western style breakfasts with superb home baked breads. Omlettes, English breakfasts, and pancakes. Very nice prices. Sit, sip coffee, stay awhile; you're back at Mom's house and she loves you.

After trying the wonderful, freshly-made food at Country Mother's, we were glad to see from the bustle that others recognise its charms. If you are looking for tasty, well-made Western fare and generous portions this place is for you. Go now!

We had a wonderful meal at Country Mothers. After two weeks of traveling in China, we were looking for something other than Asian fare when we came across this great restaurant. We had a Hawaiian style pizza, a veggie pizza, Caesar salad and garlic bread, burgers and chicken. The flavors were authentic American. There wasn't a scrap of food left... More
