We stopped for dessert only after a disappointing dinner at a nearby restaurant. The atmosphere is very pleasant with a great dessert selection. I highly recommend the chocolate bomb!

So glad to hear you liked the chocolate bomb--it's one of my favorites, too! All our pastries are made by Lora Quarrella, our in house pastry chef. Hope to see you again soon.

There is no link on their website and I didn't find them on OpenTable. I really thought I had seen them on OpenTable, but I just checked and the app said to call the business. Perhaps you can email them for reservations.
