Filled with French ambiance, this tiny cute store only has three tables, so there is frequently no seating available for customers. However, it is common to see patrons waiting patiently in line for the elegant, delicious and uniquely attractive desserts that vary in sweetness and design. Prism (NT$140) is a cheesecake with nuts marinated in wine to produce a unique taste. Red Berry Marshmallow Tart (NT$140) is spongy and soft; Koto (NT$150) is made from green tea cake with macaroon and gold sprinkles on top. Daily fresh－made pastries include breads and various snacks that pair well with coffee and tea. --By Uvia Chang, translated by S. Ying
