Situated south of Sanlitun, Alice’s Sweet House is a newcomer worth the visit. The interior is charmingly decorated with a tall cherry blossom tree, pink and mint green furniture, and adorable tiny props. In addition to a well-organized beverage menu, the various desserts are visually stunning, making it difficult to take that first bite.
We try the xiaotutu (RMB68), a bunny-shaped cream cheese cake with fresh pineapple jam. We also order the xiaoxinxin (RMB68), based with blueberry jam, chocolate sheets, and small puffs of cream formed in the shape of a cube, along with a xiangjiaonatie (banana milk tea, RMB28) to wash it all down. We may have gone a bit wild but we just can’t help it – Alice’s Sweet House sure is a sweet little escape.
