“Amazing ice cream in Taichung”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

This former eye clinic has been transformed into an extremely popular ice cream parlour, gift shop and cafe. There is an enormous range of ice cream flavours (more than 50) divided into 'fruit', 'chocolate' and 'tea'. It is worth getting there early in the day as the queues can apparently get pretty long and stretch around the corner later in the day.
The gift shop behind is beautiful - fitted out to look like an antique book store, the packaged traditional cakes/biscuits and chocolates are sold in gorgeous packages. A great place to visit if you need to collect some presents to take home.
The ice cream and biscuits/cakes are expensive by local standards, though not compared to what you would pay for them in equivalent places overseas.

“Surprise”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

This is not a hospital, just remain the name and the building. Everything is beautiful.........the interior design, the packing, the restaurant, the food........I spent an afternoon there with my friends, the price is not cheap, and may not delicious for all food, but the presentation is attractive, the atmosphere is good with soft lighting, it's really romantic and comfortable.

“some divine flavours in their ice-cream selection”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Other than the decor and ambience (folks into retro themes will love this place), we also fell in love with their tea-flavoured ice-cream, blending elements of tea, mint, rose, lavender, longan etc depending on which blend you choose. We liked it so much we purchased the same flavours in teabag form. The queue may seem long but staff are fast and the queue moves along fairly quickly.

“Must visit place ”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

It's very nice souvenior shop and shopping experience overall.

The interior decoration is exquisite and vintage style. All goods are packed well and attractive, in a wide range of selection covering almost all traditional desserts in Taiwan, but all in their own brand.

Service is considerate.

There's cafe on 2nd floor and afternoon tea is recommended.

“Special Theme Shop Selling Delicacies & Ice Cream”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Don't be confused by the name of the shop which you would think it is an optical shop. It is in fact a shop selling some delicacies (biscuits) and of course the most famous - ice cream.
