Baked Expectations is a whole lot of hometown homemade goodness. Torte, cheesecake, flan - it does not matter, you cannot go wrong. My personal favorite is Schmoo torte.

Desserts are good - but THE worst coffee! A machine dispenses the amt of coffee grounds - don't know if this can be re-set but even when we said something (they asked) they could not seem to get a half-decent cup. I'll give them E for effort!

My family and I have been going here for years. When I was growing up in Winnipeg I believe this building was a drug store. They have kept the general layout, floors, windows and doors. Located in Osborne Village. I always look for my favourite waitress.

I've tried pretty much every desert in their repertoire, and by far the best IMO is the apple bavarian cheesecake. It's not too sweet, perfectly creamy and always fresh.

A large variety of deserts, all looked really good, It is a small place and always super busy, especially during the summer months. Our group had to wait 15 minutes for tables and we couldn't sit together because it was so busy.

two gal pals and myself dropped in to baked expectations in osborne village on a spring outing and indulged in a delectable piece of cheese cake. DELICIOUS ! Lots of variety on the menu for that indulgence , we all sometimes crave and deserve. If you or that some one needs a sweet treat , check it out.

The cheesecakes are not just delicious, they"re Superlicous! You will keep going back for some varieties of their baked stuff. The name of the place speaks for itself: Expectation - expect the unexpected!

I absolutely love this place! My friends and I went and all got their 'specialty lattes' in bowls and they were seriously the best ever, I can't believe more people haven't told me about them! We had cake which was amazing too (salted caramel chocolate cheesecake is so good!) and our service was very quick and efficient. Love love love... More

I had a piece of the peanut butter cheese cake. The cake was delicious and well worth the price. The service was excellent we had... More
