“Got a glimpse of heaven!”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Have been to this beautiful little gem twice now and have both times had their bomb Alaska ice cream and also snuck in a macaroon. Would highly recommend anyone visiting Auckland to treat themselves to one of milse's stunning desserts.

“Treats for all”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Found it on the pricy side for the small desert that I had. Pear and rhubarb with a crumble in a small glass, don't get me wrong was yum but over priced. Location small but cool layout.
Warm deserts for winter menu to keep the people in when its chilly outside served with specialty coffees would be great.
Will re visit with my mum

“Honestly, truly incredible!”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Group of friends came for desserts. We had to wait an hour, to sit, we did not mind,but the manager was totally professional and kind. And had looked after us well.
The desserts were beautiful, amazingly intricate and presented. Tasted divine.
Will totally come back.

“Desserts only”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

I had never been to a restaurant that only serves desserts. What a great idea. LOL! You can sit at a table in this small cafe.....or take your dessert away. It is tucked away behind and to the side of the Ortolana Restaurant in the Britomart retail area. The prices seem high.....but this is really high quality. I have usually purchased some of their exotic flavors of macaroon cookies. But this time I had to have an ice cream stick. I choose mango/coconut. It was awesome! Good texture and not too sweet or too tart. After dinner, it is nice to take a walk to Milse and look at the many unusual candies and cakes. It is even better to eat some.

“Desserts Galore!”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

if you wanna splurge on dessert or sweet treats this is the place!

endless rows of delicious colourfulness to tease the eye, i don't know how the staff can contain themselves!

love how they have an "ice cream" menu, very cool concept

won't break the bank either!
