Aili Cake Xigaze Reviews
Great for a sugar fix! Jul 18, 2010
While strolling along Shandong Xilu, one of Shigatse's main shopping streets, we passed this very inviting bakery/cafe.
Aili cake is first of all a bakery shop with all sorts of breads, pastries, cakes and a very impressive selection of birthday and celebration cakes.
There's also a sitting area with a few tables. The tables to the side have cool swinging chairs! In the back of the shop there's a glass window, from behind which you can observe the confectioner creating the most beautiful and delicious cakes!
The staff didn't speak English and the menu is entirely in Chinese, but sign language goes a long way. All the sweets and goodies are on display so you can just point them out.
Unfortunately they do not serve tea but you can get a cup of Nescafe, soft drinks or shakes. There's also a selection of ice creams and I watched some patrons eating hot dogs.
It's a great place to take a break and get your sugar fix!
