I don't have much else to add that hasn't already been said. I thought the milkshake and cake I ordered were excellent. The server took a tad too long to simply deliver a slice of cake, but it was worth the wait. I'll definitely go back if I need a quick dessert fix.

After eating at TBonz stopped in for a dessert to go. We got the carrot cake. It is one of the best desserts I have ever had! Stop in and get some desserts. If you are stuffed get them to go! You will not be sorry. So many choices~

Don't waste your time having dessert at your dinner restaurant. Stroll around town and finish up at Kaminsky's for awesome cakes, pies and coffees. It does get busy so expect a short wait, but well worth it.

We stopped by this place around 11pm, thinking it would probably be closed (it was closed at breakfast time on a weekday so we assumed that they must not do much business - boy, were we wrong). The place was PACKED! There was a 20+ minute wait to get a seat, so we decided to get our desserts to go. Between 6 of us, we split the Butterfinger Cake, Chocolate Cake & Pecan Pie. We stopped at Kilwin's for a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream to go with it & then headed back to our place to enjoy. Everything was delicious. When asked to point to our favorite - each of us chose differently, 2 on Pecan, 2 on Butterfinger, 2 on Chocolate Cake. So - there is something there for everyone. It was $19 for all 3 desserts - but, again split by 6 people with PLENTY to go around - it was worth it!

The place was jammed as it usually is but our server was personable in spite of the rush and delivered fabulous chocolate cheesecake and chai. It was an excellent combination and a nice way to end the evening. The drink menu looked enticing and we will have to go back another time to check out some of the combinations.
