Afternoon tea with delicious Black Forest cake

Gasthaus Zum Adler German Restaurant

Gasthaus zum Adler, a German restaurant run by Mr. Söffner, is near the center of eastern Taipei, 10 minutes walk from Taipei 101. They specialize in southern German cuisine. Mostly the dishes are home made.

We often go there for afternoon tea: a cup of fresh coffee or tea, with home made German dessert. It costs only NT$150. For German desserts, we can have a choice of their home made ice cream, chocolate-coated banana cake, chocolate truffle, or black forest cake.
