Beautiful pastries and desserts that taste even better than they look! Scrumptious doesn't begin to describe the selections at the Taste Factory. The café boasts chic and modern seating areas reminiscent of Dutch interior design. While relaxing in this dessert paradise it's impossible to just eat one flaky handmade croissant or pastry!! ALL the pastries and desserts are baked FRESH each day!! The best experience is to drop by the Taste Factor a little after 5pm to take advantage of its end of the day sale prices! 6 pastries for $6!!!! You will not be able to control yourself, within an hour there's a strong possibility that you will eat EVERYTHING you purchased!!!

We just dropped in quickly for a pastry, as it is promoted as a boulangierie (bakeshop), but were attracted by the huge display of hand made pastries. They were not jusy eye-catching, but delicious. They were delicious and well presented in the glass displays. So many to choose from ranging in price from $3 to $6. The strawberries were fresh and the eclair was soft. I spoke to the pastry chef afterwards and you could see he is very proud of his little pieces of workmanship. Each one is hand crafted and it's a shame to have to eat them. But we did!

The decor and atmosphere is upscale and well appointed with deep art deco chairs, all color co-ordinated. Everything has the monogrammed "The Taste Factory" on it so they have created a brand.

Service was on a stainless steel platter and staff tidied up the tables as soon as other customers left.

I used the bathroom, and it is immaculate and modern. I will return for complete meal there soon as this was just a desert and drinks, but its interesting enough to get me back.

This place has enough sugar to put you in a coma! Everything tastes great. The staff is young - maybe a little inexperienced - you need to be assertive and clear on what you want. The pastries are all fantastic and you won't be disappointed.

We stopped here in one evening and it had very little pastries left (like 5 items left). So we left, but came back a few days later for pastries and break to take back to the resort. They were okay, nothing special.
