“Must see.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Best deserts ever with a large selection from desert drinks to cakes and pies as well as house made ice cream. One of their signature deserts is a Macadamia Nut Ice Cream, Hot Fudge Sunday. Very secluded seating. You can even phone the piano player and request a song.

Really fun way to end an evening. A great cup of coffee and anything sweet on the menu. The atmosphere is delightful and conducive to wonderful conversation.

“Don't miss this experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Wow, we were there for New Year's Eve and the waiter made us reservations at the dessert room. It was fantastic. I loved the private cubicles, music at the table, and the menu was unbelievable! I can't imagine how they come up with so many things on the menu! Pages and pages of coffees, cheese and desserts! We had a banana dessert (forgot the name of it). It was very enjoyable. Just the experience is awesome! I will definetely go back when I visit Tampa!

“Delicious..What a treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Four of us went upstairs to the Dessert Room after dinner at Bern's. You are in your own little room where you can select the music that you would like to hear. The service was excellent, the menu was varied and you could custom select ice cream flavors for banana splits, sundaes, multiple scoops. There was a variety of drinks. It was delicious and for the service and quality we thought the prices were reasonable. It was an interesting and great place to go.

“What an awesome experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Went with my son after dining at Berns. What a great way to enjoy dessert. You are in your own room with music choices and a menu of sweets beyond anything I have ever seen. Over 3 pages of sweets, a page of cheeses, a page of coffees and more pages of wines. The coffee was excellent (just good old coffee) and roasted on premises. The desserts were absolutely beautifully prepared, completely decadent and very memorable. Our server was great also, came by to make sure we were happy, kept my coffee full, but let us have our space to enjoy the delicious flourless cake with their home made macadamia nut ice cream! I would recommend doing the whole experience, meal at Berns, tour the kitchen and wine cellar, end up here and you have oficially found heaven. Highly recommend this wonderful room!!!
