Why My Sweetie Pie Bakery & Cafe is special ?
My Sweetie Pie Bakery & Cafe. This simple-looking place focuses on offering a good selection of traditional American family-style cakes and pastries, with light meals on the side. As many customers will agree, nothing beats a healthy, down-to-earth meal that is finished off with a good dessert. All baked goods are made to order and are sold in a tightly-sealed wrapping for freshness. --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee
My Sweetie Pie Bakery & Cafe is a long-term dream for owner Rainbow, who says that making desserts is a form of relaxation for her. Each day, you'll find eight kinds of cake displayed on the shelves, and the flavors change on a regular basis. Furthermore, if you would like your own custom-made cake, call to order one; an eight-inch cake is about NT$880.
For more savory palates, there are a number of brunch variations on offer, such as poached eggs with pesto sauce, ham and toast (NT$180), or light lunch meals that include homemade beef lasagna (with homemade pasta, NT$270). The prices include regular coffee or tea. A slice of cake or pie can be added to all orders for an additional NT$60, making for a very reasonably priced meal.

Tips for you
“If you're looking for a Western pastry shop in Taipei, look no further ;)” If you’re a westerner, after living for a considerable amount of time in Taipei you naturally start craving western desserts; at least it happened to me. Luckily, I was able to find this wonderful pastry shop tucked away in one of the many corners of ShiDa’s night market area. It offers all kinds of cakes, including: strawberry pie (beware, it has white chocolate inside), Oreo cheesecake, banana chocolate, and carrot cake, among others. My personal favorites are the American apple pie (the stuffing has the perfect amount of cinnamon and caramelized apples, and the crust is cooked to perfection), the gingerbread cookies, and the balsamic vinegar cake. I know the latter sounds strange and unappetizing, but believe me it is nothing short of spectacular. It is made out of raspberries, cream cheese, and balsamic vinegar. It looks like a red velvet cake, but it tastes completely different. If you like the mixture of sweet and slightly acidic taste, you’re in for a treat. If you’ve never tasted this combination, take a leap of faith and try this delicious concoction. The restaurant also offers a wide variety of teas including: organic darjeeling estate, mountain spring jasmine, white orchard, African nectar, and my favorite chai tea latte. The only downside is that there is no soymilk option. All-day brunch is available for breakfast-lovers, but I’ve personally never tried it so I can’t guarantee that it will meet your expectations. I can assure you though, that their pastries are a must-try if you’re in the city.
