Bread Pudding Heaven

We felt like dessert after a nice dinner and thought to give this place a try. My boyfriend loves bread pudding so naturally we got the bourbon bread pudding. I am not a fan of bread pudding. Soggy bread/cake is gross to me hence why I don't like tiramisu (don't hate me LOL). Anyway I thought I was... read more

My princess was only 5 minutes into our decadent chocolate plunge when she begged me to do this every weekend. PROS: Desserts are outstanding. Expensive? Well, you get what you pay for. And these worthy delicacies are amazing in texture and flavor. I ordered the Chocolate Trinity, with its chocolate ganache, white chocolate and chocolate mousse layers, sandwiched by chocolate...

Dessert are pretty to look at, but pretty expensive too not to mention just above average in taste. I prefer the local deli and bakery for flavorful food.

This is a great place for a nice date when craving something sweet. Street parking wasn't as bad to find. We went when it was close to closing time and staff was still really kind and didn't give any impression that they wanted us to leave right away.

I tasted the chocolate cake and it was good, and the tres leches parfait was nothing near the flavor of the original cake.

Walked in after local dinner. There was a line and every table except for a very small one was taken. There is a display case for cupcakes and other little pastries, and another for cakes. As the line moves, we carefully make our selections since we had plenty of time. The service staff was competent and pleasant. We ordered a... More

Nice selection and great tasting food. Friendly service and awesome location in the heart of North Park. Only one complaint. They have a strict $10 min for using debit or credit cards. Even if the bill comes to $9 you might get a "we will do it this time" comment. Other than that great place.

Another recommendation from a friend who said to try this place, especially for their cupcakes. Well as luck would have it, Heaven Sent Desserts was open on a Sunday evening so we stopped in for a nightcap. Heaven Sent Desserts are made from scratch in their kitchen using has a pure butter and it allows them to offer a varied... More
