“Great deals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The cafe offers all sorts of food, and although we did not order a sandwich, etc., the food looked very good. We went there to buy desserts at outlet prices. You cannot beat the deals, which change all the time. We bought a large apple crisp for $8, I don't think you could buy the ingredients for that price, and it was delicious. Their cheesecakes and other desserts are fantastic, and worth it even at full price. The daily specials are unbelievable deals.

“Dessert Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

The desserts are the best in the area. I have tried many different pies and they are all good. I look forward to getting there soon to try some more sweet treats

“Nice cafe in Reading”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

This started many years ago as an outlet store for imperfect desserts they produced in the Sweet Street Desserts manufacturing facility. A small lunch menu was also available. Recently they underwent a renovation and became Cafe Sweet Street. While you can still buy incredibly delicious desserts at outlet prices, you can also have a great lunch.

Standard menu items include soups, sandwiches, french fries, wings, burgers and salads, some of which change each week. The food is fresh and service is friendly. Be prepared to wait a little for the fries, burgers or wings to be cooked. There is no table service and seating is somewhat limited. Consider calling your order in because they can get pretty busy during lunch, especially if they are having a dessert sale. There is a big selection of cold beverages, hot tea and coffee.

Dessert specials change each week. They often put out samples of desserts on sale, and you can also buy desserts by the slice. They are open weekdays and Saturdays.
