The bakery prepares the cakes with care. The final product shows the effort. The green tea cake is especially recommended. For birthday cakes it is better to order beforehand.

Wonderful little bakery, Asian inspired with delicacies. Also serves sandwiches for lunch. Try their bubble tea- delicious. Great breads, cookies ( e.g. Green tea cookies with pumpkin seeds or Rose walnut cookies) and calming ambiance. Cash only.
