Best dessert in Taipei — Top 5 sweet cafes & best dessert restaurant in Taipei
On the first day of my self-sufficiency journey to Taiwan, I only want to sip bubble milk tea to keep my stomach content. But it surprises me when I visit this island nation and discover that there are a plethora of pleasant things concealed beneath the land of bubble milk tea. There are so many retro-style eye-catching eateries that have filled up the alleyways, and the coffee fragrance spread in classical music from the 1990s. I moved here a long time ago, yet I’m still devoted to the café culture of this region. For anyone planning a trip to Taipei in the near future, these are the five “essentials” of pastries (desserts). Now, let’s look at our finest dessert in Taipei and locate the best dessert locations in Taipei.
BW General Store
BW General Store is a harmonious combination of minimalism and retro. From the old door to the table, the wooden chair with tones of grey color with the items of the shop, that make anyone standing in the middle of this space also has a calm feeling.
The General Store’s menus are short but eye catching, with classic desserts that are staged follow style of “less is more”.
As a concept store, the unique selling feature here is hand-made wrap presents and everyday décor antique items that are incredibly unique and distinctive. The fragrant and lovely cookie packets are made, delicately packed, and placed in the tray. Isn’t it lovely to see the fresh jars of jam gleaming in the golden light? The innkeeper who likes Japan so much (really, 90 percent of Taiwanese people adore Japan) also lived in Japan for a while, therefore there are also Japan records and Japanese housewares that the store owner painstakingly hand chose.
There are not many sophisticated accessories and fixtures, minimalist style that exudes a sense of serenity and comfort, a slow and gentle of rhythmic breathing was needed between the hustle and bustle of the capital city of Taipei.
Because the restaurant is one-of-a-kind, so is the dining experience at the shop. There are days when you may dine out, and days when you must fast and return home. As a result, based on our backpacking travel experience, remember to check out the shop’s Facebook page before you arrive here, so you don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Flügel Studio: The dessert paradise
Flügel Studio is one of the King of Desserts in Taipei. Definitely is the King! Let’s come here, then you will understand why.
All kinds of desserts such as: pastries, biscuits, tart cakes, and sponge cake, pies … None of these can make difficult for the chefs to bake here.
One more amazing thing is, “No one can swim in the same river twice” when coming to Flügel Studio. The menu of the restaurant renews daily. So when come here to eat and then you will do not know how to review is right…
However, there is a distinct flavor that is not found in any other flavor. That is the cheese flavor in the shop’s combination of cheese blueberry pie and several varieties of floral tea. The fatty and tough cheese combined with the smell and grease of milk, with the light and somewhat sour flavor of blueberry, the taste can be called “sweet death”, melting on the tip of the tongue.

La Vie Friande
Isn’t it too difficult? Private dining style is not yet widely accessible in Asian nations, but since handcrafted sweets and drinks are prepared in a very distinctive manner, and partially because of the “feel ill” in the reserve culture of this business, it has generated a unique appeal. La Vie Friande was founded by a Taiwanese girl who grew up in Taipei. She went to school to learn how to manufacture bakeries and set up a place in her own living room to offer “desserts” for the sweet fanatics after becoming dissatisfied with her unpleasant working life at the office.
