Desserts are good, nothing special, but I am not a dessert person. Espresso is not very good. I recommend this place with reservations.

I can only talk about the desserts - but about that there could be volumes and it would all be amazing. I love this place and every time I am in Houston I make it a point of stop. some of the old greats are no longer on the menu but the "replacement" desserts are just (or almost) as great!... More

They have the most delicious cakes around. They are 3 layers and have a quarter inch frosting between the layers. If you are one of those people who say, oh, that's too much frosting or that's too sweet, well - why did you come in a dessert place? If you like rich, sweet, delicious cake - then you will love...

We were very good, loyal customers of the Dessert Gallery. We purchased from them often. We bought a $45 cake which made everyone who ate it ill. I called to inform them. They did not care. No offer to replace the cake or give us a refund. They just don't care about their customers.

I have visited this café many times and am never disappointed. Good sandwiches and outstanding desserts. The walnut fudge brownies are enjoyed by all whom I've gifted with them. The diner's cake is unusually good for a yellow cake with chocolate icing. I love all the chocolate items. Cakes, cookies, brownies. Never disappointed.

I have had the Diner cake, German chocolate cake and Mom's chocolate cake. I have got to have my chocolate! And the walnut fudge brownies are the best. I gift my doctors with them quite often., too.

Our group loves the Diner Cake which is chocolate frosting on yellow cake. I love their carrot cake and their cupcakes are delicious too. Whole cakes aren't cheap but make a big hit at parties. If you're not counting calories give them a try.

I enjoyed the cake, German Chocolate, I had the other night. The slice was large and I ended up taking 2/3 of it home to eat later. I could feel the diabetes rush set in. The slice was 6.95. Next time I will opt for a cupcake so it is less food (sugar). I can't complain about the taste or... More
