Went in Sep 2016. Long queue, need to queue 30-45mins outside before entering the store. The salted egg yoke pastries all sold out by noon. Traditional pineapple pastry standard has dropped and price increased. Pastry skin still thin and nice. But pineapple fillings is sweet with hardly any pineapple taste. Realised that they had mixed in White Gourd with the... More

We recommend this shop. Pineapple cakes are very without palm oil and preservative. You have a large choice of cakes and it is one of the most famous shop for pineapple cakes in Taipei

Price seems to gone up abit. Long queue, usually would buy around 9am to avoid the super long queue. Sometimes no have milk biscuit or pineapple tart with egg. The shelf live for pineapple tart with egg is about 14days, normally other tarts is 40days. one pineapple tart with egg is about 38twd, no egg is about 32twd.

This round I bought 16.4kg worth of goodies! They can even pack for me in a new & nice carton box together with individual carrier bags for each... More

I was very scared of the long wait so I went around 8am since the hotel was super close. There was like less than 10 people in the shop so it was easy to shop. I picked a few single cakes like cherry, melon, and wife & milk cake and bought boxes of pineapple cake. I tried the cherry cake... More

Went to this shop upon reading many good reviews. It certainly didn't disappoint! Bought their signature pineapple pastry home and my family members enjoyed it very much. It's not too sweet and the skin of the pastry is great with a good dose of butter taste. The price is reasonable too. Recommended place to buy souvenir home.

It wasn't crowded when i went. Around noon on a weekday. Had time and space to walk around to look at the variety of pastries, biscuits and tarts. Bought egg tarts and had them fresh. Good buy! (: Will recommend getting the milk pastries, cranberry and pineapple eggyolk tarts!

My friends from Taipei stopped here to buy me a box of mixed tea cakes. They said it is the #1 shop for tourists to buy gifts for their friends back home. I ate one cake--and Yum!!! Chia Te is definitely a place to buy the small tea cakes.

So the line was long, store absolutely packed, and obviously very noisy. We were recommended by a friend who came before so did not know this bakery was highly rated as well in TA. We tried other pineapple cakes before since apparently this is Taiwan number one cookie, but this one hands down is the best of them all. When... More
