CLOSED/snapshot/dessert: waffles at LOUISE BY AUNT STELLA's
(This location is now CLOSED! One other location remaining at Fuxing Sogo)
LOUISE BY AUNT STELLA's
at Zhongshan Mitsukoshi
No.12 Nanjing W. Rd.
MRT: Zhongshan Station
Kid friendliness: lots to eat. no high chairs spotted though some room for strollers. near busy intersection though. only outside seating.
Visit reviewed: 1/19/2009
These waffles were a lot more cakey than I usually like my waffles, but Louise by Aunt Stella's is a cute corner of a cafe at the Shin Kong Mitsukoshi at Zhongshan Station to catch up with a friend over cakes, especially on a nice day.
I rarely get out to this part of town, but there's a lot going on on this busy street- there's also a McDonald's, Coldstones, Starbucks and Apple reseller nearby.
And apparently waffles are big on this side of town. Across the street tucked in the alley, apparently there is a place called Melange Cafe that serves waffles that often has a line outside of girls waiting.
Don't forget- in Taipei, waffles are more a dessert or for afternoon tea than for breakfast (if you couldn't tell by the ice cream and overload of chocolate syrup.)

yes melange is crazy!! last few times i've been there i've had to wait a good hour before i got a seat. The waffles are pretty darn good though thats for sure, they also have a nice tea and coffee selection. If you don't mind waiting it's definitly a place you can try
Oh my goodness. These look positively divine. I've never even heard of this place, so thank you very much for the heads-up.
yum!! that looks so good. are you on twitter btw?
This is near Zhongshan Station? Agh, I stayed in Zhongshan a few months ago and wish I'd known about this place! Of course, there's always next time. :) Your photos of the waffles are fantastic, and I can see why one would have this for dessert rather than breakfast! Maybe one should compromise and have it for brunch instead?
dlin: wow! were they worth the hour wait?
carrie: let me know how you like it if you go..
jean: yup! on twitter.. hungryintaipei
sapuche: right outside the Zhongshan station on the corner of the mitsukoshi mall. the rest of their menu is not that exciting but their cakes looked good
that looks like a meal in itself
I think it depends if your really craving waffles! I was with some ppl that really worth so I didnt really have a choice hahaha...but it really is worth a try. I would try mon~thurs just before or after lunch if you can. I've heard they are "not" as busy during those times
looks really good! A suggestion: When you take a picture of something really big next time, can you put a coin or a dollar bill next to it as a reference. Keep up the good work!
dennis: yeah.. after 2 bites i was done since this was after lunch
dlin: i'm not as into cake-like waffles, so i'm not sure if i would tolerate the wait. maybe someday!
samihaha: yeah i've thought about that in the past, but usually i try to take the pics as quickly as possible and then dig into the food!
Louise by Aunt Stella's is now a Mr. Coffee! Heaven help us.
yeah, it's actually a mister donuts now... you can still find the original Louise at Fuxing Sogo next to the City Super in B3. New delish Waffles and new other stuff too~
