Light On The Sugar is a family owned bakery and coffee shop founded by Yixi Qui and his wife Wen Qui known for their gourmet coffee, tea and pastries with an Asian twist.
Under the mentorship of Jimmy and Johnny Tung, Light On The Sugar founders, Yixi Qiu and Wen Pan, recently opened their second location at 501 Orlando Avenue in Winter Park at Lee Road.
This comes just a few short months following the opening of Light on the Sugar’s sister concept, Sugardough Bakehouse, which opened in Audubon Park in August of 2021 to a line of eager customers.
The new address is 501 Orlando Avenue in Winter Park, Fl next to Bento and Blaze Pizza at the corner of Lee Road and US 17/92.
Everything is baked in house daily creating French goods with Asian inspired flavors such as Matcha, Ube, Taro, Black Sesame and many more. The menu rotates weekly because they are always coming up with new ideas, so follow them on instagram to stay updated with their new flavors.

Why is it light on the sugar? It’s based off of the Eastern Asian and French culture where desserts are sweet, but usually with less sugar content than desserts from the West. They have larger percentage of natural fruit ingredients, and can be served not only after meals and with tea, but also during meals as essential part of Chinese Ying and Yang tradition of eating “balanced” meals.
