We get pineapple cakes to bring back to Canada as gifts. They are loved by all and are a tasty way of sharing the wonderful food of Taiwan with friends and family from other places.

The eggs tarts! They were phenomenal. I am not a fan but Chia Te's amazing ones were worth coming here for. I suppose we were lucky that day, we encountered a helpful and pleasant staff who could converse in English. She took the time and explained to me how each box would be priced differently depending on the type of... More

The place is a Taipei classic. There must be a good reason to stay in business for nearly 40 years, right? Well, Chia Te's reason is their delicious pastries. Definitely, check this place out! Here is a good blog post about the bakery (with pictures and directions) - http://travelingmarmot.com/chia-te-bakery-taipei-classic.

Drawn by popular recommendations, seriously seriously disappointed. Had tasted better tarts but had not experienced worse service. Will NEVER return.

Best pinapple tarts I have tasted from Taiwan. Like their cranberry, melon and salted eggs flavour best. However, it is not cheap and cost about $1.50 per piece. Their sun cakes are also very milky and tasty.

Were here couple days ago, hunting for best pineapple cake reviewed on internet. Terrible service, we were given attitude by the cashier lady when making payment bc we decided to purchase 3 med boxes instead 2 large boxes of pineapple cakes, for the sake of packing luggage. It was not even busy or any queue when we were there. Don't... More

The location is inconvenient by MRT but it is worth going there! Awesome bakery with lots of variation to their famous pineapple cake. Longan, cranberry, strawberry and pineapple with egg yolk were some of the variations. Besides pineapple cake, the almond biscuits were also popular. I see lots of the customers leaving the bakery with huge bags of goodies.

Fail proof place to get pineapple cakes to bring back home! I also enjoy their "sun cakes" and their egg tarts are super good as well, but beware the egg tarts don't travel well.

the pineapple tarts are yum but I have tasted similar tarts in Taipei 101. But since this is well known decided to buy for family. The pineapple and cranberry were good.

We have been eating Chia Te Bakery pineapple buns for as long as I can remember. But, this is my first time going to the store. We got lucky and went on a Thursday afternoon so there was no line outside. You purchase full boxes of pineapple and cranberry/pineapple cakes at the counter, but can select other bakery items in...
