はちどりケーキ Hummingbird Cake

  Hummingbird Cake, or Hachidori Cake(はちどりケーキ) as it's known in Japan, is without doubt the cake which generates the most questions at The Three Little Pigs.

  Tracing it's roots back to the southern US, where it's a popular home-baking standard, the combination of banana, walnuts and pineapple and in our version topped with cinnamon icing have made it a popular standard.

  And we guarantee it contains NO hummingbirds!!

Typhoon Preparations

  While Typhoon Hagibis (台風19号) does not affect our business hours as we are closed on Saturdays, that didn't mean we could relax.

  All the smaller plant pots and outside decorations have been taken inside, and as we have no shutter on the window and door we have taken the precaution of boarding them over.

  The result is this rather eerie view of the cafe.

  Have a safe weekend!

Time for Espresso

 It's not just about the teas at The Three Little Pigs. When we opened we decided that we'd also serve great coffee, and to me great coffee meant Italian. So we invested in an espresso machine and tried various brands of coffee beans before settling on our favourite. So far so good...and I know that to many people coffee is just coffee...we get the occasional compliment and it makes us happy...but the 'icing on the cake' came last month when an Italian customer coffee aficionado, who'd ordered a cappucino said it was really good, and as good as any capuccino he'd drink back home in Italy!

 Thank you!
