When you enter this petite dessert house, you'll see several French-style dessert illustrations on the wall, plus a bright, clear glass showcase displaying artistically-created, beautifully-presented French desserts such as macarons, cupcakes, chocolates, cakes and handmade cookies. Behind the counter many delicate cups and utensils are also visible. Complementing the desserts is a selection of hot/cold drinks including coffee, juice, tea, the Japanese Calpis soft drink, and popular non-alcoholic "mocktails" like the Fresh Fruit Tea and Marshmallow Cafe. The second floor holds Sweet Emily's dining area. --By Ruby, translated by Angel Pu

A. The colorful macarons tower is an attractive, cute-looking creation.

B. Cupcakes (NT$55) come in six different flavors--Strawberry, Vanilla with Lemon, Vanini Marron, Maccha, Chocolate, and Blueberry with Apple--and their texture is somewhere between a sponge cake and muffin.

Sweet EmilyC. The daily limited-quantity Afternoon Tea Combo (NT$200) comes with selected macarons and six French desserts. The combination is sometimes changed and consists of the dessert house's popular items. Hard-to-find heart-shaped macarons are soft inside and crispy outside, and the baker lowers their sweetness levels to appeal to a broader audience. The Cream Cheese with Mixed Nuts Mousse is basically a chocolate cake, with the inner layer made up of cream cheese and varied sweet preserved nuts, and a top layer provided by a piece of Carma Swiss chocolate. The sweet and sour filling and the lovely aroma of nuts creates multiple layers of exquisite flavors.
