I grew up in the U.S., and I will always have nostalgia for some of their more hearty desserts, such as carrot cake, chocolate chip cookies, cinnamon rolls, and cake with thick buttercream frosting.  In the past, when cravings struck, I usually had to roll up my sleeves and make these desserts myself.  However, this has all changed  upon my discovery of Fika Fika Cafe, and most recently, Heritage Bakery and Cafe. Both cafes serve carrot cake the way that it’s supposed to be~ sweet and cinnamon-y, with visible carrot shreds, and most importantly, topped by a generous swirl of cream cheese frosting.

Heritage Bakery Cafe is located near Taipei Main Station and Ximen Station. (If you are a camera enthusiast, you will be familiar with this area, because there there are several camera stores grouped in this neighborhood).

I was especially interested in trying Heritage Bakery andCafe’s signature items: their red guava chiffon cake.

The chiffon layers sandwich fresh red guava, red guava and whipped cream.  The entire cake is then swirled with fresh whipped cream; resulting in a perfectly delightful slice of cake.  It’s just the right combination of sweet and tart, the chiffon cake is made with brown sugar (I think!) so it tastes a bit more caramel-like than your usual run-of-the-mill chiffon cake.

The first floor is mainly occupied by their counter and a display area.  Most of the seating is located on the upper floors. There is a large communal table, and a few smaller tables, and you can easily spend a weekday afternoon there with a good book, a coffee and a dessert.

Enjoy!
