Situated within the residential areas
along the lanes between SongJiang and MinSheng roads
is a simply-decorated and elegant hand-made cake workshop
named Cafe Door, run by several young ladies who love
to bake and cook. Pull open the elegant glass door and
you will be greeted with the thick aroma of coffee and
the delicious smells of cooking, making you want to
sit down and try it all. I was asked by one of the owners,
the friendly A-May, if I would like to try their new
dish, the Curry Egg Salad French Roll. As I was wondering
what a French Roll was, she quickly explained that it
was French bread shaped like a ball. The French Roll
is first cut in half, then a layer of curry is placed
on top, followed by a layer of egg salad. This is combined
with oil and dressing vinegar, making it a low-calorie
light meal. All the meals, cakes and cookies here are
handmade; even the coffee is home roasted. Their greatest
attraction are the homemade desserts. Their Pink Rose
Cake (NT$65 per slice) is their own unique creation
with an aromatic rose scent lingers in your mouth. Meals
here are fairly light, and they have even calculated
the calorific content--definitely healthy and delicious.
Prices are reasonable (most items are between NT$60
and NT$250) but you can sense the care that has been
put into everything.
