Dazzling Cafe 玳思琳蜜糖吐司, Taipei

Looking for a place to sit after a long walk at the Taipei underground, I walked around Taipei Main Station level 2 (where all restaurants and food courts are located) and stumbled upon this nice looking place. Who can resist delicious looking desserts?

They serves sandwiches, panini, soup, salad, finger food, spaghetti, waffle, crepe, and honey toasts. As for drinks, they offer cocoa, coffee, classic tea, scented tea, special mixed tea, and slush. As its name in Chinese mentions about honey toast. So that’s what I’m going to try. Alternatively, you can try another special dessert, waffle with mochi inside. Something I didn’t have enough tummy space to try.

Hazelnut Chocolate Honey Toast (TWD290)
You can choose how you would like your toast to be made, either soft, regular or crispy. I love crispy. What you see is not what you get with only crispy toast topped with vanilla ice cream, cream, strawberries, chocolate drizzle and some crushed almonds. Where’s the hazelnut?

Wala! The toast is cut into small pieces with hazelnut chocolate inserted in the middle of each piece of toast. Putting some vanilla ice cream on each toast is delicious! Happiness to my mood, my mouth and my tummy.

I also ordered something special to drink.

Festive Grape Tea with Cherry (TWD160 for hot, TWD140 for cold)
This tea comes with fresh slices of grapes, pineapples and apples. I don’t usually put sugar in my tea. So, I tried it without sugar. Wow! Too sour at the first sip but was ok after my mouth adapted the taste. Drinking the tea with some fruits to bite is rather nice.

My overall rating: 6.5/10

This cafe has many outlets not only in Taipei but also Hsinchu, Taichong, Tainan, and Kaohsiung. Dazzle yourself with more dessert at their website here (available in English and Chinese).
