next to the Hsinchu Municipal Performance Hall, Madele
Cafe is a small cafe with an interior that gives you
the impression that you are comfortably dining at home.
Run with care and attention by owners Mr. and Mrs. Peng,
Madele originally served only pies, cakes and coffee,
but gradually added different pastas and baked dishes
to satisfy customers' needs. The menu is updated every
six to 12 months, and the interiors are periodically
updated to maintain a certain level of freshness. Customers
tend to be females, many of them being regulars who
like to bring their friends and relatives. On weekends,
many families can be seen here enjoying their meals.
Reservations are recommended for meals. Due to popular
demand, a new branch with a completely different style
has opened just 100 meters away on Bei Da Road. Especially
popular are the fresh, delicious cakes, handmade by
the owners. Most meals are around NT$150 and the Afternoon
Tea Set includes cake, tea snacks and coffee jelly,
enough to enjoy all afternoon. The cozy atmosphere,
combined with their baked dishes and specially-created
sauces, makes this a wonderfully relaxing gathering
place. --By Kristy Liu, translated by Cara Steenstra.
