“Smells so gooood!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

Oh my, when you first walk in the smell is to die for, even their restrooms smelled so good ha. But seriously that smell of chocolate how could I not try one of their desserts. I got the Treasure Island which is like a brownie sundae and I must say it was pretty tasty. The brownie was nice and warm, so was he chocolate, mmm! Me and my husband shared because the desserts are pretty massive and the prices are pretty up there but worth it. One dessert is perfect for two if not even for three. Go ahead and try this place you'll enjoy it.

“Hot Fudge Sundae”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

You must try the hot fudge sundae - in a fudge dipped waffle bowl. The waffle bowl was DELICIOUS!!! You can also mix & match your own bag of Ghirardelli chocolates.

“Ultra Rich Desserts!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

Love the desserts and Coffee, so rich you have to drink tons of water, which they offer for free. Only reason why I did not give 5 stars is because it's very small and always crowded, no elbow room, have to wait to sit down.

“FANTASTIC ICE CREAM EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Really great ice cream and lots of great things to choose from. I had the sundae with the caramel and sea salt topping, fantastic combination. So rich and creamy. Service was really good, too, and fast.
