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.
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
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!
