The Name Says it All

Got into town late and couldn't resist a late night snack as I was passing by. Grabbed a slice to go and wished I'd picked up one of everything. Extremely high quality ingredients and so delicious. Though I didn't eat in, the decor seemed nice as well.

we stopped by as we were cruising the city, we were not disappointed. The line was moderate but moved quickly and we got this amazing chocolate dessert. The taste was not too rich and the one piece was big enough for three people to share. take your sweet tooth and friends

These desserts aren't just delicious - they're also so beautiful that they're also works of art. Such care is taken to make each dessert look stunningly gorgeous, from edible gold on the fruit to flowers and petals to make each slice of cake or torte look even more special. And the beauty is more than skin deep - the desserts... More

Try ganduia and caribe cakes if you're into chocolate. Froissants and brownies are also fantastic. A little overcrowded and they only have a one restroom though.

We ordered the Torta Misu (unique version of a Tiramisu cake) and it was fabulous! It was large enough to share. The line ups were not bad on this Friday night in December. Normally in the summer time you can wait at 30 minutes. Very popular spot and great ambience.

This is truly an extra ordinary place. I hesitate to call it a bakery - it is in a class all it's own. The cakes are wonderfully delicious and beautiful just to look at. They have a wide variety of pastries, coffee, gifts, etc. Eat in or take out.

I cannot get enough of this place! It can get pretty crowded, but it is worth the wait. They make the most beautiful cakes and desserts I've ever seen and they taste as good as they look. Everything I've tried has been great. The other location in Little Italy is a lot larger, so it doesn't seem to get as... More

I was half to have friends and family introduce us to this phenomenal dessert shop. I was smitten with the bread pudding as soon as I walked in, but did my best to give the other contenders a chance. I looked at cakes, and tarts, and cookies, and came back to the pudding. Luckily 3 others got dessert and that... More
