Teenage daughter loves to bake, and likes to seek out exceptional baking on vacation. This looked like a good candidate. So on our last day, we put a visit here on our agenda in between all the shopping. Two things we discovered: 1) even though it says café in the title and info can be found online about the lunch...

I didn't think this place was very good at all, the lady working there when I went was really polite but the dessert wasn't anything special. I'm sorry, definitely a miss for me.

You must get the carrot cake. I'm not a huge fan of any cake, much less carrot. But I was told by several that this is the one to get here. It was so good I have driven two hours to back and get it again. It's amazing!

My husband has wanted to visit this place for the last few years but we never got the chance as we always run out of time. We visited yesterday. We ordered two cookies which had just been taken out of the oven, a slice of the coconut cheesecake, 6 layer chocolate cake, peanut butter pie and a bread and butter... More

Enjoyed sharing the 6 layer chocolate cake and the peanut butter pie. The slices are very large and neither of us was able to finish. Menu offered a great variety to please everyone including carrot cake, key lime cake, lemon rum cake, red velvet cake, cannoli cake, flourless chocolate torte, a bourbon pecan pie, several kinds of cheesecake and more....

Recently visited 'Dessert Lady' it has been on my to do list for years. Finally got the chance to try it and boy was it worth the wait. I had the Red Velvet Cake which was the best I have ever tasted. The owner was really friendly and helpful, the slice was huge, enough for two. This place is a... More

I had a craving for desserts so looked it up and went. No regrets! When we arrived the same owner was the one to received us and took our order (was pacient enough). We bought Carrot Cake (a must) and her version on Tiramisu Cake (made with chocolate chip cookies instead of lady fingers). Both were amazing and not to... More

The Dessert Lady is a favorite of Orlando residents for its homemade, extravagant desserts. We visited the area to celebrate my birthday and stopped by to pick up a slice of cake to take back to our room for later. Instead, we got the four-half-slice "sampler" and enjoyed four different desserts! Try the fudge ripple bread pudding. Visit them at... More

Unfortunately this place is now closed. We decided to visit it today and wandered up and down West Church Street before asking in another establishment where we were told it had recently closed. I suppose seeing that the last review was in July that should have given us a clue. So sad considering the good reviews it was getting. Please... More
