What a great little spot. Delicious desserts, great coffee drinks with a kick. The ambiance is great. Perfect for a cold, rainy day in December. Staff was very nice.

We stopped here on our food tour, and went back on another night. The bourbon pecan pie was wonderful, and while sitting at the bar had one of their special martinis. Wonderful

My husband and I were just there last night for "Happy Hour" Martini's. Can't beat the price for the product you get, but the ATMOSPHERE is so MORE WORTH IT! Bartender was Great, personable!

It's a dessert place what would you expect? The desserts are awesome and reasonably priced. Service is good. There is sometimes a line but it moves quick.
