Pineapple cakes are much-loved by Taipei's public
Oct 2020
Once, Taiwan grew pineapples by the thousand. The pineapples in these special cakes are harvested wild. The pineapple jam is surrounded y pastry, like shortbread. they make good gifts.

Excellent Service & Fantastic Products
Aug 2019
One of the best pineapple tarts in Taipei! It's a must to visit this place. Their products can be pricey, but it is worth the money! Excellent service provided as well, they will open the door for you and serve you pineapple tarts and tea for you to try!

Amazing pineapple cakes
Feb 2019 • Solo
I wasn't sure what I was expecting from Sunny Hills because I had never been there before. It is a medium sized restaurant area where you get a complimentary cup of tea and a sample of cake. The great things about these cakes are that they are firm to the touch but crumble when you bite into them. They are not too sweet so if you don't have much of a sweet tooth these are fine because they won't leave your teeth hurting. The way they make money is that you can buy packages of the cakes after your sample. And you will. They are amazing but be warned they are best eaten within 25 days of purchase so if you want to bring some home with you buy them towards the end of your trip.

Very nice and delicious pineapple tarts

So far, this is the best pineapple tart that I had tried. The staff welcome you and serve the pineapple tart with a cup of tea for tasting. The filling is just right, not sweet and the pastry is perfect. I would certainly recommend everyone to try.

Delicious pineapple tarts
Dec 2018 • Family
We have always enjoyed eating Sunnyhills pineapple tarts, so we had to make a stop here while in Taiwan! The ambience in the shop is very welcoming, and each visitor is offered a piece of pineapple tart alongside a cup a tea.

While the price of the pineapple tarts here may be slightly more expensive than other brands, rest assured that you will get your money's worth! The pastry is buttery and the pineapple filling is made from pineapple fruits, unlike some that are filled with pineapple jam. The filling is also not cloyingly sweet, like many found at typical tourist attractions. I would definitely recommend coming here, if not to purchase some souvenirs, then at least to have a taste and enjoy the experience!

So “atas”, looks like an exclusive spa more than a pastry shop
Oct 2018 • Couples
A relative bought this for us when she went Taiwan so I KIV this place and Chia Te. If possible, go to both places, they have different feel to it.

Chia Te is very near the metro (nanjing sanmin) while Sunny Hills is quite a long walk away.

Chia Te is more like the typical bread/pastry shop, crowded, everything is out on display while Sunny Hills was more like a premium spa.

If you have never heard of this brand and walked past their outlet, you’ll never be able to guess that they sell pineapple tarts.

You’ll be greeted at the door by a staff who’ll invite you to have a cup of tea and try their pineapple tart. It’s a very nice experience.

The pineapple tarts here cost about NTD 41 each while those at Chia Te costs NTD 30 each. The packaging of Sunny Hill’s looks more minimalistic and chic and will appeal more to youngsters.

Since we came all the way to Taiwan, we bought from both brands! Chia Te’s pineapple tarts come in more funky flavors (original/cranberry/cherry/plum/walnut etc) while Sunny Hill only comes in the original flavour and offers tester (must-try for their experience).

I couldn’t find the weight of both tarts for comparison so hope this info is useful for you. Both weighs 50g!
Disclaimer: Weight is inclusive of respective individual packaging, mine is a luggage scale so it may not be super accurate.

Remember to bring your passport if you’re buying a substantial amount to bring abroad. There’s tax refund (not sure how much). We didn’t think of that.

Sunnyhills versus Chiate pineapple cakes
Feb 2018 • Family
Sunnyhills was established in 2008, started selling in 2009. While other pastry shops mostly try to establish themselves as the best pastry, Sunnyhills tried to establish an entire agricultural revolution and securing the firm footing of Taiwanese reputation of high end pastries internationally... and succeeded they did.

Instead of waiting for demand to control their supply, they did a Steve Jobs move - by making a pineapple cake so good that customers who knew nothing or who usually had no craving for such desserts started desiring them. How did they make it good? By using gourmet baking flour from Japan, natural butter from New Zealand, eggs from the healthiest hens in an antibiotic-free farm, and Cayenne No. 2 pineapples from their own farms in Bagua, Nantou, Taiwan.

How does Chiate compete? By their trusted quality since 1975 and also sheer variety of pastries aimed at every special life occasion that requires gifting pastries (such as Chinese weddings and births), and their products are also at much more reasonable prices.

Comparing ingredients, both state pineapple, flour, egg and sugar as their main ingredients, though Sunnyhills' list also included milk powder, cheese powder, condensed milk and salt.

Comparing flavours - it's obvious that Sunnyhills wins by having more strongly flavoured (tarter) pineapple stuffed into their cakes, and also with a thicker, less powdery crust if that's what you're into, but older people (and younger kids too) might still prefer the softer, buttery and melt-in-your-mouth crust of Chiate's cakes. Sunnyhills' cakes are bigger and more satisfying, but some may prefer the smaller, bite-size Chiate's cakes.

Presentation wise, it's obvious Sunnyhills has the sleeker, contemporary and classy Japanese minimalist look, complete with a recyclable cloth bag. Older people might just prefer the grander look of Chiate's box, complete with a whole list of the awards they've won over the years and a red paper bag to boot.

While Sunnyhills definitely has the better marketing to create a desirable, high end factor with a backstory so touching it adds on to the emotional appeal too... Chiate has its own traditional appeal too.

Overall, it probably wasn't meant to be a head-on fight in the first place since they're rather different. If you or someone you're gifting loves pineapple cakes / pineapple tarts, perhaps you just got to get them both.
