Great choices for those who are lactose intolerant. There are always different options. Keep in mind it is always busy and there is a long line, but that it is worth the wait.

We went to Sweet Life for dessert while in Eugene, the desserts were amazing. I had the key lime tartlet, and thought I was in heaven.

Sweet Life is a very small, very popular French patisserie in downtown Eugene. Expect it to be packed at night - this is a college town - but even when the line is doubled up on itself, it moves quickly. I try to use it as an opportunity to admire and choose from the amazing variety of stunning desserts on display! The Chocolate Orgasm cake is incredible, but get it with a cup of coffee; everything here is quite rich! The atmosphere is fun and very "Eugene," but if you want your dessert to go, they'll box up whole cakes cakes and pies or single slices for you.

We went here on a Sunday evening around 8:30pm. There was a line out the door, we waited about 15 min before ordering.

We had the creme brulee and key lime tartlett. Both were excellent!

They stay open till 11pm every night so that's a bonus.

We actually went here to get a Gelato (our favorite kind of ice cream), but it failed to impress. Apparently, their Gelato is made by Palazzolo's in the mid-west, which would be fine, but we found it to be very ho-hum in flavor. Now, we've only tried it once, so perhaps we just did a poor job of selection, so we will try it again. Gelato in Eugene, OR is not easy to find.

While there, we had a couple of their stuffed croissants, and found them to be quite good, as was the vanilla/caramel latte and the chai.

It's located in an older part of Eugene, where the local businesses still try mightily to uphold the old hippie tradition's of use, re-use and re-cycle. That's a good thing.
