So good that we went in twice the same day! Once for dessert and then for drinks. My lemon pavlova was to die for. Meringue in a form that I had never dreamt of. Tasty lemon curd. Whipped cream. Berries. Cute chocolate writing and pretty plating. My friend adores chocolate lava cakes and she ohhhed... read more

The desserts are good although not extraordinary. Seating is comfy, different types of tables and configurations. Staff is friendly. Note that there is also a downstairs if you cannot find seats upstairs.

Very cute place with a nice concept. We were in the Bedford location and it was freezing. We did ask to have the heat turned up and they did then it was more enjoyable. Nice décor with big leather chairs. Desserts were good and appearance nice. Pricey however but the desserts are big enough to share. They have wine and... More

I was told about this place on the plane up from Ottawa. I asked a local for some recommendations and he put Middle Spoon on his list as places worth going for a late night drink after a meal. I was there with a group and we arrived around 9:30pm or so, right after a meal down the street. We... More

Desserts - 10/10 Cocktails - 100/100 The desserts are amazing. The experience begins the moment that spoon touches the dessert and you just know there is something different about what's on your plate and what you usually get at other restaurants or cafes. Presentation is always great as well as the service. Getting to the cocktails - Hands down one... More

I went to this restaurant this evening at the recommendation of my girlfriend. The atmosphere was nice ad the staff friendly, but the food I had was quite bad. I ordered a lava cake to go. After a 15 minute wait the man who dealt with me came up hurried and what seemed to be a little nervous. He proceeded... More

This place appeals to the younger crowd who like to eat late. Have been here a few times for dessert and after dinner drinks. Nice place and has another level below that visible from the street.

We dropped in for a late night dessert & were not disappointed! The lemon pavlova still has me drooling & topped off with a spiked hot chocolate to roll back to the hotel with. Great place to sneak away to with your lover!! 😊

I have walked by this place a number of times while in the Mall. I've never gone in though thinking it is a dessert only place. Today I went in with my mother after a not great lunch elsewhere. I must say, I will be back for other items on the menu! I ordered the Lemon Pavlova. It is lemon... More

We went to The Middle Spoon for dessert after having dinner elsewhere. We were unaware they offered anything but desserts and, while the 'food' menu isn't extensive, it did look interesting. The desserts we had - carrot cake and chocolate cake - were very yummy, and nicely presented to boot, and the service was friendly and quick. The decor is... More
