The food here is pretty solid but the dessert is what this place is known for and it doesn't disappoint. This is a nice place to take a date to enjoy a nice conversation. The service is a bit slow but the staff is nice.

On this trip to Portland we just ran in for a couple pieces of their delicious cake to go. We have always enjoyed this restaurant but we had eaten elsewhere and had to have a dessert from here. German Chocolate and Carrot Cake it was. Soooo good.

Great food, every dish at the table was prepared perfectly and delivered with world class service. But.... Save room for dessert! The dessert menu is larger and even more varied than the dinner menu. Amazing dessert chef here!

Why people love it here is beyond me. The desserts are good. The regular food is just that--regular. Have tried a few things for lunch. Something is off. Maybe it's the seasonings. They act like they are doing you a favor too.

Most of the tables were populated by people who came only for the amazing and unique desert selection. They certainly made a great choice as we learned first hand. We also ate dinner, which was good. I had ravioli and shared a flight of 2oz pours of Oregon Pinot Noir followed by a full pour of our individual favorites. The... More

We came here for lunch on two different occasions during our stay in Portland. First, this restaurant is located in the lovely Nob Hill area. The dessert case is located as you enter the restaurant so be sure to peek at the desserts because you MUST plan ahead! My favorite lunch selection was the Salmon Apple Salad with apple, fennel,...

Apparently this place is known for it's tasty desserts ($8.95 for a piece of lemon cake) and they do have a lot. Sandwiches are good, fun drinks. I had the Beef Sugo Pasta. Be sure to stir in the horseradish before tasting.
