This is a very unusual eatery, opened 10 months ago by a Taiwan woman who also owns the well-known bar Roof. L's Life is a sort of boutique-style bakery with an open kitchen that allows customers to see the chef at work. The concept is for natural and healthy food made with no additives. Except from the bread, everything is homemade, and staff offer homemade cookies, cakes and very tasty jams at 35 yuan (US$5.55). Snacks include sandwiches and fruit tea for 22 yuan and cakes at 90 yuan each or 25 yuan for a slice. The eatery also stocks lifestyle books and soaps from Taiwan featuring authentic organic ingredients. L's Life offers customers a chance to try their hand at cooking, as the premises next to the shop has been fitted out for classes with Roof's chef offering instruction. Each class costs 500 yuan for two to three hours. You need to book two weeks in advance. There is also an option to rent the space in the bakery and bring your own ingredients. Very original!
