Heritage Bakery & Cafe | Taipei
Liesl and I don’t easily pass up the opportunity for sweet treats and coffee, especially when carrot cake and cinnamon buns are involved! After spotting this bakery on Instagram, and their mouthwatering desserts (that have been screaming our names ever since!), it’s been at the top of our list of must-visit bakeries in Taipei.
Heritage Bakery & Cafe is located in Taipei's Zhonzheng District and a mere 10-minute walk from Ximen MRT Station. The bakery has two beautifully designed floors (another project by award-winning JC Architecture and lead designer, Maria Isabel Lima) and is decorated with a mix of modern and industrial, yet homey, details and concrete and brick walls. There are larger tables upstairs (perfect for groups) and big windows allowing for natural light. They serve a wide range of American style desserts, which are all on display downstairs, and can also be seen from outside the bakery.
There are so many desserts to choose from (which made it impossible for us to decide as we literally wanted them all!) so we just went ahead and ordered five to share.. (it was lunch after all!), and we also got a latte and a fruit tea. The menu consists of mostly sweet treats such as cake, tarts and pies, with a few savory options if you're caving something a little more salty. We loved them all, but the dessert of the day for us was definitely the carrot cake; being deliciously moist with the creamiest icing (drool!). Well, what are you waiting for, scroll down and feast your eyes!

We can’t recommend Heritage Bakery & Cafe enough, and their welcoming and friendly staff made our visit even more perfect. We can’t wait to go back and try all the other delicious desserts they have to offer. They also take reservations (on Facebook) which makes it super easy to reserve and score a table at this must-visit bakery.
