“Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

I'd heard of the restaurant years ago and always wanted to go, it was our second night I believe and we were literally running around broadway looking for it and luckily we found it! There was a huge queue and we hadn't reserved so we had the option of waiting an hour and a half or eating at the bar - we ate at the bar.
I had the chicken satays for main and it was average to be fair.
The dessert however was amazing! And the guy next to us gave me a free hot chocolate so score;)
Defiantly recommend if you're visiting New York
(plus they have wifi - not great signal but ok!)

“food&desserts with a twist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

we had some great time here enjoying great food and desserts served with a twist. The salad served on the waffle was truly delicious and so was the fondue platter with fruits! The downside is: it is always overcrowded and it has little space for manoever, so if you come with kids it is a bit tough. use the online booking system, it saves you waiting time.

“Great Way to cap off a "Sweet" night.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

If you don't have a reservation, don't bother planing to eat dinner there on a Saturday night.

Our plans took us into the city for a spontaneous trip. Our destination was Union Square. Our 11 year old was hoping for a Max Brenner Experience. We ended up eating dinner at the Coffee Shop Bar, which was really good. Walked over to Max Brenner for an over the top dessert.

I had the Banana Chocolate Torte, My Wife and Sister in Law had a Crepe and the kids had their crazy amazing chocolate pizza combination.

The prices are not great. Dessert with a little take home chocolate was shy of $100.


Will make it back there next visit into the city.

“Lovely, chocolaty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

I visited for lunch with my sister. She had the chicken and goat cheese salad on a corn waffle, which was excellent. I had the mac and cheese, which was the perfect blend of crispiness and creaminess. Try the onion rings with chocolate mayo if you go, and definitely don't skip the shaken chocolate milk. It's the best chocolate milk in the world.
