The building is restored beautifully, the layout and design is gorgeous, they have very decent ice cream, and even though you may have to wait in line for while on any given day, it's totally worth the experience.

Add this cafe to your Taichung trip! The ancient building used to be a optical shop. They served very delicious icecream and you also can buy some goodies (cookies, pineapple cakes , tea etc) from the shop at 1st level. 2nd level is the cafe.
