Chia Te Bakery owner Chen Tang-peng grew up in a poor fishing family and decided to enter the bakery business after seeing the neighbor boys bringing home breads and cakes after working outside town. She began apprenticing as a baker in Ershuei Township, Changhua County, and for over four years she learned how to make bread, pineapple cake, wife cakes, sun cakes and mung bean moon cakes.
At the age of 18, Chen went to Taipei to begin her baking career. After honing her skills at several well-known bakeries, she opened her own business at the age of 26. The small bakery steadily gained a reputation, laying the foundation for Chen's success today.
The care that Chen puts into baking has earned Chia Te a growing clientele and made the bakery one of Taiwan's best-known pineapple cake gift brands. In 2007, Chia Te won first place in a pineapple cake contest jointly sponsored by the Taipei City Government and Taipei Bakery Association.

Popular pastry bakeryThis is a popular bakery serving pineapple based pastries. There is usually a queue outside the shop which moves fairly quickly.
Good for SouveniorI visited Chia Te everytime when I landed Taipei. I like the texture and taste of the pineapple paste from Chia Te very much that I cannot find from any other brand. Many local people told me they find there is no difference to those selling in the supermarket which I disagree. Visitors have to line up for around 10min before entering thanks to high traffic.

Great tasting pastries though a bit on the exzpensive side.Was in this bakery early to avoid the long lines but still had to endure some sort of waiting time outside before we were allowed in. Good thing they have devised an ordering system for those already familiar with the products and do not need to go around. You just have to indicate your orde4r on a slip adn bring this straight to the cashier for payment and your order will be prepared and packed. The pastries are delicious though a bit on the expensive side. There are comparable suppliers of Taiwan's pineapple cake that cost less. Still Chia Te is a destination you must visit as it is already an institution in Taipei.

Always long lineDon't tried to avoid the line, just get in line and wait. I waited for about 30 mins. My line was all the way to burger king. This moved at a good pace and they will bring lot of sample for you to taste. Usually I bought sandwich sweet cracker, sun cake, and green bean paste from the fridge.
