This is quite possibly worse than going hungry. I have tried this place at least six times and not a SINGLE time have they gotten the orders right. Food is alright but takes for ever and never correct.

One of the best places for desserts and pastries in Dominican Republic. If you happen to be around, don't miss the chance to hit it!

I really enjoy eating sweets and going to this bakery has helped me satisfy my sweet tooth. The sweets and non sweet treats are delicious. The staff is very friendly, the only thing I have to complain is that they take their sweet time bringing the food and the check but overall the experience was great.

You have to try the pyramid brownie with homemade ice cream, caramel and fudge sauce! My friend and I went after the day at the pool and people kept staring at us because apparently you have to go here dressed like you're going to the club. Besides the uncomfortable stares, our waitress was rude. Spanish isn't our first language, but... More

Just to make things clear: carpaccio was of terrible quality, smelling like rotten meat and of disgusting mushy brown texture, I decided not to eat it. Bloody Mary was undrinkable, WAY too spicy, almost as if they used Tabasco instead of tomato juice. Dulce de leche with Nutella was a better choice, although my girlfriend does hundred times better one.... More

Long time ago the pyramids made a fame of you! But now everything is "para chuparse los dados!" What I would like to distinguish about you are the personalized cakes! OMG! You made it perfect for my boyfriends birthday! Kitkat cake, excellent! I also like the atmosphere in all your places! Thanks!

place is very exquisite, dont forget to try the pyramid and the brigadeiros, their natural juices and sandwichs are delicious too, small but very quaint, it can get a bit noisy since the place is not so big and the tables are very close one another, but worth to go and have a coffee and a pastry

We visited recently and ordered 4 different desserts; none of them disappointed. They were as delicious as they were attractive...and pricey...but well worth it for an occasional splurge. Will certainly be back.
