    You get an entire three course menu with desserts. The quality varies a bit because the menu changes from day to day, but if you love sweets you should definitely try it.

    The black sesame churro cone ice cream was mind blowing! Seriously super delicious. Best black sesame ice cream I have ever had! The churro was great too :)

    Man, everything here is good. Crepe cake especially. The menu changes a lot, so get your favorites while they last. Below is the boba French toast with vanilla ice cream.

    So far the best dessert experience I had in the city. Chika is so kind. This place gives you the time to relax and enjoy the taste. No rushing here and that's appreciated after a very busy workweek.

    The best crepe vanilla cake I have ever had, not too crazy sugary and very light. Also try the Nutella doughnut it is very sweet but the overall will not eltima you down. The caramel shake was great.

    16 dollars pre fix for a small amuse, an entree (relatively small portion) and sweets for the table(which is the best part). Recommend: cheese cake and brown sugar Pina cotta

    Its quite an experience, a must try. But wont do it twice as there are too many other places to try. The idea of a multiple course dessert is a bit too much in my personal opinion.

    The desserts are clearly delicious, but I go for the experience of watching them prepared in front of your eyes with final edits made by the executive chef.

    You have to show up earlier in the day as they sell out of their classic cheesecake. The deserts are delicious, truly an experience watching the chef run around & make personal touches to each dish.

    Three courses of dessert. Created for the mentally ill (like me). It's very nice to watch Chika and her team work, they have amazing technique; but the cheesecake was just too subtle for me.
