Quality of food: 10/10
Overall: 9/10



There’s not a lot else inside this little bakery, but it isn’t needed. You can see croissant, pain au chocolat, morning buns and pain au raisin on the front and on the back shelf are a range of sourdough breads.


To the right side (and what you can mainly see beckoning you in from the window outside), we have Kouign amann, almond croissant , focaccia and also mexican bread at the back.


I also couldn’t help but indulge in the French baguette, too! (which was available from around 11am).

1. Kouign Amann $50

This is a delicious little pastry to help your morning coffee go down all the smoother. Made with orange zest, it pops with citrus notes and the caramelized sugary crust underneath gives a great texture to the flaky and light pastry.

2. Morning bun $70

The morning bun is made with cinnamon, and as so carries an incredible aroma. This was my favourite of the two, I really can’t recommend this enough. Flaky layers of pastry folded together and sandwiched with cinnamon and butter – how can you not like this?

3. Almond Croissant $80

Plenty of lightly toasted almonds on top mix together in one mouthful with crunchy pastry and almonds inside. It’s another great pastry. However, I think I actually prefer the plain croissant $55.

Only having been here for 6 months, Purebread is still new on the scene in Taipei. However, I have no doubt it will succeed, as the bread is delicious, and the pastry even more so. I do think, also, that it is competitive with pricing against chain bakeries such as Gakuden, 85, Sunmerry etc. Yet, I believe the quality to be much greater than those.

In addition, the road it’s on is ideal for picking up a pastry from here and then sitting outside one of the many coffee shops situated on the road. That’s exactly what I did with Purebread and Cafe Doux – wonderful morning!

Opening times:
Thursday – Monday 10:00 – 21:00
Tuesday & Wednesday closed


No. 15, Lane 154, SiWei Road, DaAn District, Taipei City.

Recently moved out to Taiwan and don't know how to order at restaurants? I got you sorted. Can read some characters but still don't quite know what you're ordering? I got you sorted. This site has been developed to help people who can't speak or read Mandarin. I use pinyin, characters and English to talk about food ordering, and how you can do it at specific restaurants.
