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...

Look no more, get from Chia Te, you'll not be disappointed! All their cakes, pastries and breads are delicious! Love their egg tarts too! Thankfully there wasn't any queue when we got there, but it was quite packed inside. The tarts come in boxes of 6, 12 and 20 pcs. Try to avoid getting the 20pc-box as you may have... More

Absolutely love the pineapple cakes here! The ones with eggs are my favorite. Compared to a lot of subpar tourist Places, I think this is the one to get in Taipei.

...even in the rain. It was a long trek from our hotel as my boyfriend suggested taking the scenic route and we had a long line ahead of us. It wasn't too bad and was worth it and I really should have bought more! That's my only regret! They are efficient and hand you a little placard of what you... More

This place is recommended by the locals and it did not disappoint. Expect queues, and each visitor typically purchases a number of items. Tarts with various fruit fillings, of which pineapple pastries seems to be most popular. Customer service is very well organised.

Not being much of a fan of sweet treats, I was quite surprised at having to queue to enter the shop and face the crowd inside scooping up just about anything they could get their hands on. However, one bite and I'm a convert. We tried the cakes and biscuits (almond cookies and pistschio cookies). Once you start on one,... More
