Beautiful but expensive products
Dec 2017 • Family
This shop was revitalized from a former eye hospital. The interior design was impressive and every product was packaged exquisitely. We particularly liked the tea bags packaged as records.
We bought some tea and a box of honey cake. The tea was good but the cake was so so. There was not much taste of honey to it.
The shop was interesting to visit. The staff was friendly and helpful. However, everything was quite expensive comparing to similar products with simpler packaging at other shops.

wonderful shop

We were impressed with the opulent decor and the friendly service in the store. The cake was delicious and the packaging lovely. We wanted to find the cafe where pearl/bubble tea was invented but our reuter died on us. We asked the clerk for help. The shop was so busy and crowded customers but he spent quite a bit of time to draw out a map to guide us to the place. It also have a restaurant upstairs but there is a line waiting and we were in a hurry so we didn't do the restaurant however it looked amazing. Impressive place, products and staff.

Lovely shopping experience

This is a cake shop with ice-cream. The shop itself reminds me of somethong out of Harry Potter quirky and interesting. You can take as manay pictures as you want. Lots of different cakes to choose from and tea. Staff very attentive and polite.

They also sell ice-cream which is very yummy but beware the queues can be quite long but worth the wait. Also if you have more than 2 scoops of ice-cream you can choose 3 toppings. Def worth coming hee

One of the most respectable bakery

This is the main shop of Dawncake just 3 minutes walk from the Taiwan Railway Taichung Station (not the high speed rail). The deco and settings are reminiscent of a classical library. Well trained staff of inviting attitude explained the products professionally. The Dawncake products are very keen to use natural ingredients as shown on the label and proof by the tastes. Probably now an institution to stop over in a trip to Taichung. They remain not having any branch open in Taipei so you would take the chance to come to them. They do online order with minimum purchase.

Place order for delivery if you did hot have a chance to visit Taichung
Sep 2016
Did not visit the shop personally. Asked hotel concierge to place order for delivery to Taipei. The carton was tastefully designed, all items packed NICELY with beautiful boxes and paper bags provided. The pineapple tarts 17 and 2 , sun cakes and flower biscuits were delicious!

good architecture and shopping experience
Jul 2016 • Couples
Long queue for ice cream as there is simply too many flavors to choose from. Good thing that it's located outside so that it doesn't hinder the people inside the building from shopping for the pineapple cakes and local snacks .
Very nice architecture of the old building inside it. A short walk from the main train station.

Near to Tai Chung Train station and beautifully renovated shop

Nice ambience and interesting place. Exquisite packing although price is on the high side. However, no sampling of food. We went an hour before it closes so there was totally no crowd. Delivery around Taiwan is available with top-up of NT170 to ensure you get the fresher batch before you depart.

Exotic Ice creams & Pastries
Jan 2015 • Couples
The Ice Cream corner are pack with people, ques up for their exotic ice creams ranging from fruit sorbet, tea flavours and chocolates. Pastries were given a choice to choose. The main building sells all sorts of pastries/ chocolates etc in exquisite packaging. The famous would be the pineapple tarts.

Pricey but the packaging is just exquisite

I bought some gifts for my family at the branch in the old eye hospital, though expensive there are so many thing to choose from as gifts small and large for your friends and family. I am told the pineapple cake was wonderful. I also had lunch upstairs, which was really very good, pricey but well worth it. Highly recommend, even if you only want to look at the store.

Over-rated, packed like sardines
Feb 2014 • Couples
Read quite a bit about this place so I thought was a sure visit. Impressions are: over-crowded with tour buses pouring tourists in even though it was only late morning. No doubt the product packaging and visual merchandising of the place is still worth a quick look, but I spent about 5 minutes in there and quickly felt overwhelmed.
