    Caf'e No. 7 Highway is in the alley of Route No. 7 highway (Northern Across Island Highway) where is not far from the downtown of Fu Hsing.

    The Caf'e is simply decorated with its own specific characteristics. It provides you a feeling of the relax in the silent country side.

    Favorite Dish: We ordered the Vegetable Rice Gratin and the Roasted Chicken Leg. The Vegetable Rice Gratin is good as well as the side dishes of the potato gratin to the Roasted Chiken Leg.
