My sons and I were there around 2 PM and most items were not available. We had to settled for green shaved ice as that was the only shaved ice available. you can add as much topping as you wish but that increase your bill

Seriously I'm extremely unsatisfied with their customer services, I came to this place in hope for some authentic eggettes since that's the only place that offered eggettes in town as I have known. But when I came in the store, the owner of the store was extremely rude when taking my order and she did not even smile during my... More

What happened to this place? The Dessert House use to be one of the top hang out spots in my generation. I remember that place use to be packed with people lining up for bubble tea. But I guess all great things come to an end. After they relocated, service has never been the same. Wait times for a bubble... More

We tried a few different desserts that's like Hong Kong style and we both enjoyed. They used fresh fruits on the dessert which was really great!... More

In my opinion the best fruity bubble drinks in town. But the owners always act like you've pissed them off by having the audacity to walk in and ordering drinks! If you're desparate for bubbles and don't care about rudeness it's your best bet. They are not always that rude...just 90% of the time. Prices are on the higher side.

Really impressed by the wide range of Chinese dessert available, from the traditional one to more trendy one. But it's quite expensive to be honest! The service was slow to eat in, but phone in order was ready quite fast.
