Fresh, North American-style dessert and coffee creations--plus other drinks like the Masala Chai, Marshmallow Hot Chocolate, Mulled Wine and caffeine-free Vanilla Bean Steamer--and help set this cafe apart from the crowd. There are also daily-special meal entrees. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Angel Pu
A. Some of Orangery's tastiest desserts aren't on the menu but, rather, in the glass display case. These include (left-right) very big, warm Chocolate Chip Cookies; white, dark or strawberry Chocolate Spoons (NT$40, included with Hot Chocolate); cupcakes; lollipop-like Cake Pops (NT$50); "Forgotten Kisses" Meringue Cookies (NT$50 for 4); and mini cupcakes (NT$50 for 3). Popular drinks include (pictured) the citrus-flavored Orangery Au Lait (NT$150) and the peppermint-infused Candy Cane Latte, served with a candy cane and marshamallow.
B. The comfortable seating here includes a spacious indoor area, nice outside tables and an upstairs balcony.
C. Food items include Ham & Cheese Quiche (pictured, NT$150), salads, sandwiches, and a couple breakfast/brunch selections.
