Let Them Eat Cake is a cute little bistro at 82 Wellington Street, not far from the Avon Theatre. Although it appears to be a favourite spot with "the locals" it seems to be a virtually an unknown with the tourists. Open from 7 AM to 8 PM, it serves an All Day Breakfast, Light Lunches and Dinner daily. And of course Cake, which here can be a meal unto itself.

Some girlfriends and I enjoying a girls weekend, stopped in here for lunch... one of our group was good, she had a regular lunch with soup, salad and sandwich, the other 3 of us were very creative, and decided what the hay, and had Cake for lunch. LOL

We each chose a different type of cake, and we were quite happy to share and compare. As it turned out (quite by accident) all 3 cakes had a different type of icing so we also got an idea of how talented this cake shop was.

One girl ordered the Hummingbird Cake which came with cream cheese icing; the second ordered a Raspberry Torte which was topped with buttercream icing; and I had the Black Forest Cake, which has basically just whip cream for icing. All the desserts were fantastic! The slices were huge (as it was we couldn't finish it all), each wedge was about 3 inches wide and 6 inches long, and close to 8 inches high... and for under $ 5.00 a slice.

The place is small, and like I said popular with the locals (everyone seemed to know everyone else) but the service was friendly and homey. The gal who served us was very busy, but she had time to make sure our teapots didn't run dry, and to assure us that it was our lucky day, because all the cakes were calorie free for one day only.

The girlfriend who ordered the regular lunch at the time said it was very very good, but the 3 of us who ordered cake, haven't stopped talking about it... we are already planning to have "lunch" there again on our next trip to Stratford.
