“Chocolate heaven!”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

If you like chocolate desserts, the dark decadence from this place is pretty close to chocolate heaven. Absolutely delicious and You'll find yourself devouring it and longing for more.

I also bought the sea salt caramel chocolate tart for a late night dessert, and it did not disappoint!

“Don't miss out”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Adult milk shakes and a cacophony of delicious deserts. It is hard to decide what to get. I don't think you can go wrong with whatever your choice is!

“Molten chocolate cakes to die for! ”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

My boyfriend and I stopped here while wandering around Ballard the other day. We stopped in but did not want to eat desert before dinner so we bought a 2 pack of frozen bake-at-home hot cakes to go. We baked them last night and OMG....SOOOOOO GOOD! If you are a chocolate lover you will be in heaven! So rich and gooey! Mmmm mmmm mmmm. We also purchased a molasses cookie and ate it along our walk that day. It was also delicious! It was a little bit warm, soft and gooey. I can't wait to go back here! It is a little bit overpriced ($8 for a tiny little jar cake) but it's a great place to go for a treat.

“Overrated and overpriced ”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

The portions were small and we tried three different options. They all tasted rather similar and I felt the cakes could have been cooked more. The ice cream was very good and the front counter staff were very friendly. We tried this place out because it had a line at the door and had a lot of buzz surrounding it. Save the trouble and go elsewhere.
