Delectable Desserts but You'll Pay

Very good dessert menu and usually very fresh. Have been enjoying Baked Expectations since May '93 when we moved to Winnipeg.

This used to be the place to go for a massive piece of dessert in Winnipeg. Because I bake a lot, we don't often head out for dessert. It was our son's birthday and he wanted a slice of cheesecake, not a whole cake. We were out so we headed over there to get some to go. The showcase was... More

wonderful cheesecake with a lot of selection. The atmosphere is fun but not very private or quiet. Definitely a favourite place for dessert and a good location.

I have been here several times and this place always pleases. The cheesecake selection is amazing and have never had a bad experience. Just may be hard to find a parking spot. :) The selection of cakes and food to order is huge, they have soups made from scratch, fresh salads, all kinds of beverages, and of course there baked...

I love walking into Baked and just looking at all the beautiful desserts on display. They are consistently awesome and I highly recommend this restaurant for great desserts. Burgers and fries are also great. Coffee is just average.The reason for the 3 stars is the poor acoustics, small tables and crowds. It's not the place to go for an intimate... More

There's nothing like a trip to "baked ex". Food is delicious - cake portion sizes are generous. Food is very tasty and delicious. The atmosphere has a fun 50s diner feel to it. The service is usually pretty good - I've had a couple servers who were not the best but not the worst I've ever had, but on a... More

The chocolate cake slice I had here was huge and delicious! Best place for a dessert! When packed the place did get really noisy but the service was excellent! I only had the cake!

This is THE place to go for amazing desserts. The selection is astounding and everything looks so mouth watering. Fun to choose and even more fun to eat! Normally I do not have any other food there so can not comment on anything but the desserts.

I went to that restaurant for lunch with my colleagues and my boss to celebrate year end. The food was very good and of course the desserts were to die for. Don't go there if you are on a diet. Just the buttery fresh smell will make you give up. I will go back. I did bring some pièces of... More
