Crowds of camera-wielding visitors are evidence that this very impressive new pastry gift shop/ice creamerie/cafe is already a Taichung landmark attraction. The well-known Dawncake bakery chain took a derelict brick building--on the Luchuan Canal near the train station--built in 1927 and once home to the Gongyuan Eye Doctor ("Yanke") clinic,and transformed it into a stunning retro-style branch. Around May, a classic-looking tea-time dining area will also open on the second floor. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Angel Pu

A. The amazing main area resembles an enormous old English library with five-floor-high shelves and other counter areas displaying pastry gift boxes instead of books.

B. Dawncake's wide variety of retro-style pastry gift boxes include pineapple cakes, suncakes, nougat, tea bags, and cake sets for weddings, Mother's Day and new babies.

Dawncake (Gongyuan Yanke Branch)C. Visitors line up for Dawncake's first-ever ice creamerie, which offers 18 different chocolate flavors, graded by cocoa percentage (44-100%) and beans, as well as 18 fruit flavors and 10 tea flavors.
