You will enjoy their cakes. They are original in this city. They have many different kids of fruits that you don;t find in other bakery. Their cakes are not heavy so you don;t get a stomach ache.

I love to go there because I have fallen in love with the owner --- a mature and very cute and handle Chinese man in his late 50's or so. He knows everything about cheese cakes.

Great deserts and green tea, but the place really needs improvements. Not a great place to socialize, but a must if you want something sweet.
