  • Lots of books and interesting gadget. Their food court also service very quality food! I think it's one of the best food court in the area! 
  • Second floor small cafeteria. I come here for coffee and waffles briliant, because you get to them there. Nothing pre-cooked or elongated Canadians with milk. Arm yourself with patience, the waffles are served just after 12, and approximately 30 minute wait but it's worth it. Accompanied by fresh fruit, honey and whipped cream, a temptation that give with joy. I really appreciate fine porcelain services, always. This is a place where you can feel the quality. The service is non-existent. The waiters seem came there by accident, but they are always very kind.

  • 雖然並不是24小時營業,但是因為空間充足,書籍種類及數量都很豐富,位於信義區位置絕佳,而且週五、週六營業到12點,百貨公司都打烊後還可至此看書買書。 
  • It's a haven for stationery lovers with all kinds of notebooks from Moleskine to Midori and Rhodia, coloured pens, coloured markers, mechanical pencils and fountain pens. Novelty items, storage bags, accessories and plenty of gadgets plus cameras with their covers, this place is a never ending stroll because there are so many floors. There's a writing boutique that sells a great selection of fine pens and every imaginable colour of fountain pen ink. It has calligraphy sets and leather holsters to complement anything you buy. For writers and journalists, this place is an inspiration. You either covet or aspire to own any one of their great pens. Must visit if you are a lover of fountain pens!
  • This Eslite store is a shopping paradise. The food court in the basements offer a wide variety of dining choices. The first floor is filled with little boutiques/stalls that sell unique ware. They offer floors of books. Make sure to stop by the Taiwan souvenir shop and the obscure cafe on the 3rd floor.
  • One of my favorites because its thr flagship. This one definitely feels more higher end and is probably along the same level as the Dunhua location, but has more books and overall is bigger.
  • If you wanna witness how bookstores adapt to modern shopping pattern, welcome Eslite, the largest chain bookstore in Taiwan. With its department store like business method, it's finding its way to survive, and doing quite well as to catering to our needs. This Eslite has one of the largest book selection in Taiwan, with two floors dedicated to selling books only. The books there are mostly Chinese books, but Eslite also offer quite some English books, along with a section of Simplified Chinese books. It's easy to lose yourself in the vast sea of books and spend a lot of time there. Bookstores nowadays, if not closed by now, either dedicate themselves to selling one or two types of books and lead the genera, or branch out and maintain their sales with other kinds of shopping option. Eslite is the latter. With a food court, flower shop, furniture, jewelry, child care, and many more, it has adapted to become a department store. Like this place, as there aren't many bookstores these days.
  • The place I enjoy most among all Eslite stores. Very organized and compact. Books, cafe, music are all included. And sometimes seminar here~
