I’m always thrilled to find restaurants that offer gluten free options, but I’m afraid we didn’t really enjoy our cupcakes at Desserts, etc. The GF chocolate cupcakes were incredibly dense and not in a good way. We also tried a GF peanut butter cookie, but...More

Huge selection. We needed a shopping bag! Loved the coconut cake, coconut cupcakes, red velvet cupcakes, cookies and a coffee.

Oh man, are we thankful for TripAdvisor. Everything in their case looked scrumptious. I tried the Oreo Chocolate Bomb- wonderful. My wife had the Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownie. If I lived close to here, it would be dangerous, it is just that good.
