On the advice of my future daughter-in-las, I ordered 2 cakes for the rehearsal dinner dessert....chocolate cannoli and carrot . They were FABULOUS....I would highly recommend this bakery. They also did the reception dessert table of Italian pasteries and they were also wonderful!!!

This is a long overdue review, but we were so happy I want to make sure to give credit! We ordered a two tier, chocolate cake, with white frosting, and white cannoli filling, for 140 ppl for our wedding last spring, and it was FANTASTIC. Deserts Beyond the Ordinary was very accommodating during the tasting, ordering, and deliver process. On... More

love the consistency of the cheesecake. the flavor comes through, not all taste the same. This is a go to and not to be disappointed in the product. The raspberry cheesecake is sooo good. If only they could remove the calories.

The desserts they make are delicious. We won't buy our cakes anywhere else! Strawberry Bavarian cream is my favorite. The cream cups with strawberries are amazing. I love everything they sell. They do a fantastic job

I can say that I haven't actually eaten here but have heard how wonderful their pastries are, plus the photos are really enticing. They are open Saturdays from 9-12, so one Saturday, I drove from my house (about 12 miles...especially with the price of gas!) and got there about 10:00. They had a couple of pusties in the case. That... More

This is great place for lunch, especially for those on their lunch break from work. They seat you quickly, give you enough time to look at the menu, they take your order and then before you know it your food is coming out. Everything is always tasty and fresh and the staff is very friendly. They have mostly sandiches on... More
