We have a variety of desserts to share. There is a lemon tart I believe with a raspberry puree, a Chocolat cake with a truffle Center, and the famous wedding cake. Everything was wonderful and can't wait to go back.

One of best sandwich and dessert places in Jax. Hard to find, but worth it. Wait in line, sitting with people you do not know. Good food packs this place every day.

You can't make reservations. But, they do accommodate large groups, if you call ahead and tell them how many are planned. I've been to a couple Meetups there where they made accommodations.
