We took friends from Italy here and we were all wowed. The cupcakes are really wonderful. The carrot cake and chocolate-peanut butter were superb. The icing was just right not too sweet. Definitely go there if you can afford the calories. It's a small venue...More

You aren't going to get the "best" cupcake or pie slice but you're going to get a really good one. The portions are extremely generous and they have in-season fruit pies as well as cupcakes and cake, mini cakes and other bakery items... All really...More

Lovely place with amazing desserts. My favorite are the pies. Both apple and blueberry are with phenomenal fruits, just the right crust and lovely spices.

If you are looking for real New York cheesecake, go here. The cheesecake is divine. The cake is not too heavy, but creamy and the crust is to die for.

It varies depending on the time of day and what's available. Things go quickly so if you want something specific it's best to order in advance.
