This is a great place to go and have dessert. The restaurant is simple. But the desserts are some of the best you'll find. There isn't much parking in the area, and you may have to walk a few blocks to double-back. But it is worth it.

Winnipeggers raved about it but I just didn't like it. The restaurant decor was a tacky 'retro-groovy', like an old fashioned American diner. Somehow, it just came across to me to be as dated and sticky. Winnipeg winter was just stunning but somehow each time I stepped into Baked Expectations, I just felt the floor, tables and chairs were sticky.... More

This restaurant specializes in cakes & pies. They go way over & above any other dessert bakery/restaurant. The desserts are extremely well proportioned and delicious.

Cheesecake is the forte here, but this dessert restaurant has other baked goods which will satisfy, as well as a regular menu. There are many choices -- the double case holds well over a dozen choices, and more, every day. The German chocolate cheesecake is my personal favourite, with boiled nut and coconut icing and an Oreo cookie crust. It... More

The place to stop in for desert after an evening of dinner or a show. The desserts NEVER disappoint! Baked fresh daily and uses only the freshest ingredients. Truly a Winnipeg fixture. I've been going for almost 25 years.

If you want amazing desserts made with top-notch ingredients this is the place. There is always a wonderful selection of items; something for everybody. Bring your appetite as the portions are generous. Take out is available. It's a little pricey but worth it.
