I humored wife and tagged along for a unicorn cake decorating class. It actually turned out to be a lot of fun and I would definitely do it again. The owner and her staff member were excellent at explaining everything and it was a great...More

A one-of-a-kind find. Wonderful chocolate covered truffles, fantastic muffins. Stop in for a bite, definitely get items to-go which make great gifts when visiting friends.

We love Taste! We get cake balls for every holiday, birthday, and for gifts. The cafe is very quaint, and the desserts are delicious. Our favorites are red velvet and carrot.

Their sweets are super tasty. We've had several varieties of truffles, and some cupcakes. The best time to go is in the morning, so you see a bigger variety of options!

We tend to arrive at the shop in the afternoon and find that most products have already been bought up. We have been able, however, to snag some really delicious cookies, cupcakes, and candies. We always look forward to treats from Taste and recommend it.

Everything in the place is perfection. I had a lavender cupcake. It was beyond delicious. Their truffles are perfection, and there are standards and some wonderful variations. The owner is delightful and destined for greatness. No, I don't know her outside the business. I've only...More

We could have easily missed this wonderful shop and kept going down 44 but this was an amazing treat. The cupcakes were fantastic but I think the real magic is how absolutely delicious it smells just walking through the door. Get off main st and...More
