1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

Was looking forward to having a great dessert, after a great dinner, but this place left me very disappointed. The coffee (we had cappuccinos) were just OK, nothing special. Decided to share the molten chocolate....very, very tiny...the size of a 2" circle...served with a very tiny taste of peppercorn ice cream..whatever that was, tasted as bad as it sounds!!!! The chef however, did come over to us with some very, tiny "tastings" which were just ok. Needless to say, I didn't have to worry about my ruining my diet. And the bill came out to $30....we were charged $16 for the tablespoon size molten chocolate tart that was on our plate. Not worth it...save your dressert for a place that actually serves food.

“Yummy, novel desserts!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

Lots of interesting choices, standard desserts have been re-invented. You need to go and try it for yourself! Go with friends so you can share different treats.

“excellent dessert place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

unlike the typical dessert bar, the chef here is just very creative and flavors are very clean. a very small place and the service is friendly. the offerings are limited but light and flavorful. not to mention attention to details.
