Have not been to the restaurant(it is pricey BTW, this is not a restaurant you'd typically take young children too) but the upstairs dessert bar is something everyone with a sweet tooth should check out. Pies, tarts and cakes are beautifully presented and the hostess gives you a description of each. My favorite is the Coconut cream pie, smooth and creamy and flavorful with just the right amount of coconut flavor although I scrape off some of the cream topping to get the most coconut flavor. Others in my family had the Banana cream and Lemon Meringue pie and everyone enjoyed their desserts.
I have had the Apple pie in the past but the crust was too tough and the filling too sweet. I like an apple pie with filling that has some acidity to it, lemon zest and juice.
Their selection is amazing so if you are in the Sarasota area and are looking for a place to have a dessert, check it out!
Desserts are also available as take out.
