Their cakes are not bad actually but I think their marketing is better than their cakes. The coffee is disappointing though.

This busy little shop has a window full of delectable cakes and treats. Beautiful presentation and boxed carefully for carrying. Yummy too!

Was once a good thing but now rolled by the opposition. With dough collective across the road I think business has been dissected. Still Asian style cakes are ok. But that's it. The new kid dough has taken over

Deserts are nice and tasty but the staff were very rude when I visited the shop. We were there just before they were closing the shop so there was a guy and a girl that they were so rude that I felt like throwing their desert on to their faces. I'm never returning here purely because of he service I... More

I'm more for the presentation here rather than the taste. It is a well recognised cake or dessert store and has many franchises in sydney. My girlfriend is a big fan of their cakes.

We takeaway one birthday cake from this cafe and it is really nice!!!!! The price is also quite reasonable, about $40 for a cake that could easily serve 10-12 pax... The cafe also provide a numbered candle and paper plate and fork for us to enjoy the cake. This comes handy especially for tourist

This Chain store is the best when it comes to coffee and breads. It has authentic Taiwanese Breads and Cakes. Their is a variety of cakes to choose to match your coffee or tea. And the price is not expensive. It beats any other bread shops in Chinatown. Definitely worth going. For Coffee lovers, try the sea salt flavour coffee... More

Cakes aren't overly sweet, and they are nice and light. Try the 'salt' coffee, sounds awful tastes great!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
