Their sweets are super tasty. We've had several varieties of truffles, and some cupcakes. The best time to go is in the morning, so you see a bigger variety of options!

If your going to eat something decadent it needs to be worth the calories and anything from Taste meets that requirement. From melt in your mouth cuffins to an out of this world German Rabbit Cake Taste is incredible. The offerings change daily so you...More
