The desserts they make are delicious. We won't buy our cakes anywhere else! Strawberry Bavarian cream is my favorite. The cream cups with strawberries are amazing. I love everything they sell. They do a fantastic job

This is great place for lunch, especially for those on their lunch break from work. They seat you quickly, give you enough time to look at the menu, they take your order and then before you know it your food is coming out.

This place is a hidden gem on Bank place in Utica! Amazing food, and the best part is the desserts. They also can make the best wedding cakes around for a great price. Try the Godiva chocolate cake, it is to die for!!!!
