Cake House

Part patisserie (check out the crepe layer cake oozing whipped cream and berries), part Korean bakery, Cake House has a stultifying number of breads, neatly wrapped in cellophane and displayed on tables that span the width of the shop. Pastes made from chestnuts and beans are hidden in soft rolls, sweet cheese lines a Danish, and coffee scents a coffee cake (how did we not think of that before?). The steamed green tea bun, an individual-size cloud of bread with a sprinkling of peas and a dab of pea paste, flirts with sweetness before dissolving on the tongue.
