When visiting Taiwan, everyone must have a piece of pineapple tart! And where can you find the best in town? Only in CHIA TE BAKERY! Chia Te Bakery has only 1 branch. Since it's so popular, the crowd gets overwhelmed by locals and tourists alike. Don't be intimidated by the LINE you see from the outside. The line goes down... More

You can go to Chia Te by MRT Take the Songshan MRT line to Nangjing Sanming Station (南京三民 ), leave via exit two and walk straight and you will see Chia Te Bakery. Love the pineapple and cranberry tarts and sun biscuit (太阳并). These are nice gifts to bring back for your friends and relatives. Staff is generally polite and... More

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.

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.

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.
