Not often that I get to sample some original Chinese bakery items but stopped into the Eldo Cake House and enjoyed their egg custard, the pineapple bun, and a coconut-encrusted that was fantastic. Wish we had more time to have sampled more of their product.

Love their fruit topped birthday cakes and desserts. Prices are reasonable compared to an American style bakery. Their fresh baked breads are always very good. Nice place to go if you can make a decision...so many choices!

iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler,
and Kneeland streets to explore the compact area. Rest
your feet from walking and grab a bite at one of the
