It's been a while since I was there but... Great decor but the desserts taste like premade frozen food that you buy at a grocery store. Very disappointed. Honestly, I had the blondine and it tasted exactly like something I bought from the Superstore from the refrigerated section. Very expensive considering what you get. And the selection was extremely limited. I haven't and won't go back.

This place was recommended by someone we knew so thought we'd give it a try. Have to say that our expectations were high (from the recommendation) but happy to report that they were far exceeded as well! Service was great, the selection of desserts and their recommended pairings was vast and impressive, and the drink menu is absolutely an unmatched experience. We enjoyed our desserts and a couple of different drinks and just wanted more! Our time there was nothing short of pleasurable and we will be back many times. We have since recommended this to more than one couple. It is a fantastic destination for a date night with your loved one.

We ordered carrot cake with raspberry sorbet, plus an extra scoop of sorbet. They charged us $10 for cake and sorbet and an extra $8 for 1 scoop of sorbet!

We went to Amano tonight had a scoop of sorbet for only $3.

We will never go back to Middle spoon for deserts again!

Myself and a friend went to this establishment to grab a quick dessert and were immediately asked for ID at 730pm. We thought this was weird because we hadnt even sat down yet, and were under the impression that anyone (even minors) could get dessert here until later in the evening. My friend was a minor, so we explained that we didnt have ID and just wanted dessert. The waitress was rude to us and said that we had to leave, and when we asked her why she explained that there liquor licence didn't allow minors after 9pm. Since it was only 730 we explained that we would be out by 8 as we just wanted a quick dessert. She had to go and ask her supervisor if that was okay. She came back and allowed us to stay, but never gave us a menu. We asked her what the dessert were and we had a choice of a sundae, a cheesecake and a lava cake. I had the cheesecake, which had some type of greenish yellow fruit sauce that could not be identified as was terribly bitter, and you could tell the cheesecake was not homemade and just frozen from a food supplier.
Needless to say, we were out in 15 minutes, the waitress did not receive a tip, and we will not be back.
