This is my favorite place in town for Tres Leches. Any time, day or night it's always light and flavorful.

Everyone at my party loved the cake. We order a graduation cake for my son. It was worth the high price. The cake was gone by the end of the evening.

I ordered cupcakes and a birthday cake recently for my daughter's 14th birthday party. They were loved by everyone!! Dessert Gallery is my go to place for desserts for special events. I love how moist the cakes are. I also ordered the unicorn cake for...my daughter's 12th birthday and it was equally delicious. My daughter this year wanted chocolate on chocolate and I ordered the Mom's Chocolate Cake and it was delicious. I highly recommend that anyone that has a sweettooth visit this place while in Houston. I haven't had anything i haven't liked. My best friend loves the Strawberry Dream so i always get that for her birthdayMore

Ordered a 14" Red Velvet Cake for a staff appreciation Had the venue where we were gathering cut and serve over 40 people and we had still a 3rd of the cake leftover. It really will serve about 60 people. The cake was beautiful, moist,...delicious and received raves from everyone. Took what was leftover home and it was even better the next day. Thanks, Dessert Gallary!More

We have had a romance with this bakery for several years now. Every time we get to Houston for a visit we try to incorporate a visit or delivery from the Gallery. Their Lemon Vascheon is our favorite, but everything is absolutely without parallel. You...cannot go wrong with any choice. Love them to death...by chocolate. lol And the staff is super nice too.More

Very easy to order from with a good variety of offerings on their menu. Not too pricey; a good value for the $$. EVERY THING is always very, very fresh and delicious! The Chocolate Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookies are a sweet tooth's dream!! We order...from here regularly and are always very satisfied.More

Had their macaroons, my goodness they’re amazing! I shamelessly had two blueberry and one pistachio, their last three. My husband had a slice of their German chocolate cake and a latte, it made his day! We’ll definitely come back. I got a unicorn cookie to...go. I didn’t notice the detail of it until the next day when I ate it. Not only was it delicious, but so beautiful!! This place certainly pays attention to detail.More
