I love the pavlova (fresh fruit) but the coulis is too sweet.The creme brulee is creamy, sweet with a hint of vanilla. The apple crumb cake is pretty good too. There are too many to mention. Go and please your taste buds by trying any of the temping desserts.

I was just there for lunch. I decided to have 1/2 turkey sandwich and one of their amazingly beautiful desserts. It was exactly noon and the server stated that 1/2 sandwiches were not available until 1 pm but that they could do something else to accommodate me. Terrific. She presented me a plate with 7 turkey slices rolled up and... More

ok, if you live for desserts, you must visit this place! Ever-changing seasonal desserts and oh-so fresh! Great variety and also have a good selection of light meal fare and cheeses. Coffee and tea bar, and full alcohol bar too. Zen décor and staff is very friendly. Desserts and special orders to go also. You WILL NOT regret a stop... More

Too pretentious for me but decent. Really need a.c in a place like this as I don't want to go for a hot meal, curry, Pho, etc then go sweat more eating cake and a coffee. We had a rich choc cake and a blueberry sponge cake. I also had a Kiwi iced tea...? Ice tea was a sour mess.... More

The desserts are exactly as the name, "extraordinary". The place is adorable even though it's small & gets very crowed it's absolutely worthwhile.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere of this place. The staff was really nice during my visit. I didn't have the chance to have lunch at ED, just went for a dessert and a drink and I liked it a lot. The cake and the prosecco were great!

The name says it all. If you have a sweet tooth, this is the place for you. Probably the best variety of high quality desserts that you will ever see.

You are standing in line (naturally) trying to decide what to get as you watch people already sitting/standing outside devouring the Extraordinary delights that await you. As each person comes by on the way out carrying, if not already eating, these divine treats and you are looking at the cases full of deliciousness then you get to the counter and... More

Sooo pretty, even too pretty to eat! But, once you take a bite, you will be happy you did! Very beautiful place, with extraordinary desserts, though I think they know this already! You'll have to come and try it out for yourself to see what I'm talking about. Just FABULOUS!!!
