My Taiwanese colleagues recommended this place for the best pineapple cakes. I went there on a day when I was leaving Taiwan and it was raining heavily. There was a huge queue, before one could place his order but all that was worth it. Amazing cakes with different flavors like cranberry etc, which everyone in my family liked.

My Taiwanese colleagues highly recommend this bakery for the sun biscuits, milk biscuits and the wide variety of pineapple pastry. Conveniently located at NanJing SanMin station, 5 mins walk from exit 2. Walk straight ahead aft u exit from exit 2. Personal favourite! - pineapple with yolk (the combination of sweet and salty is out of the world) - cranberry... More

Everyone has different tastes when it comes to pineapple cakes. If you like yours with more tart then Sunny Hills is the way to go. However, if you're looking for an all around good pineapple cake and a variety of other baked goods to choose from then Chia Te is the way to go. I went on a rainy weekday... More

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

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
