The chocolate molten cake here was to die for! If you have late night desert cravings, this place is IT! Amazing flavor and lots of choices. They were open late, til 11 on a Monday.

This place has some of the best pastries I've ever had. They are very decadent, and they always have a stacked variety of desserts in their pastry case. I always order it to go at their pastry counter, but the restaurant area always looks nice. From Boston Cream Pie, to fruit tarts, to chocolate mousse pastries, they have everything. They... More

I was walking past alone on my way back to the hotel and saw people eating amazing desserts in the window, so decided to give it a go. The place is very popular with couples, but the staff were lovely and didn't make this solo diner feel at all awkward as can happen in other places. Plating of the food... More

If I wanted to eat spackle, I would go to Home Depot, not order cheesecake here expecting a delicious dessert. In addition, my boyfriend ordered chocolate molten cake which was accompanied by an espresso frozen blob of absolute garbage.There was no sweet factor to either the cake or the "ice cream" - which I don't believe had any sort of...

This is a great place to go for a dessert and drinks after a show or a day visiting Boston. I suggest getting the dessert sampler. They also offer excellent gluten free desserts which is hard to come by. Great atmosphere but call ahead for waiting list. It gets busy! Dan

Love the dessert, I had Boston Cream...very satisfying... Food, not so much...there was not a lot of choice to begin with, if you looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, this is the place.

The desserts are finished by a chef - but the desserts themselves tasted very commercial. There was nothing special about the $16 shareable dessert platter - in fact 2 were horrible. The waiter was very sweet. Would not return - nothing special about over priced commercial tasting desserts.

This is a great place to come after dinner. They have superb hot toasted almonds (alcoholic drink) and desserts of all kinds. I had a cookie sampler plate and a bite of everyone else's desserts. I will definately visit again.

My husband and I had the dessert sampler and a port wine flight. Everything was fantastic! The service was great too! Our waiter was very personable and informative. Cannot wait to go back sometime!
