    Oh my gosh the desserts were amazing! I chose the Pavlova and we split it. The pecan pie was very rich and the next day we couldn't finish it. Glad we were on vacation because if it was local...

    Fresh deserts made daily with rotating selection. Great tomato soup and grilled cheese as well as panini and a great cheese selection. Buy some teas to try at home lover girl is the best.

    Best dessert place I have ever been to. Classy, upscale bakery that also serves food. Focuses not only on taste but presentation: rose petals on cake. Viking cake is delish. You won't be disappointed.

    Passion fruit ricotta torte is amazing (too bad I devoured it before taking a pic). Also give the butterscotch root beer a's delicious.

    Hands down my favorite place for dessert/cake. However, on the savory side of things their Vegan Mezze plater is unique and refreshing. Pro Tip: Skip the caesar salad, dressing is straight mayo. Bleh.

    Be prepared to stand in front of the cases for a while because everything looks so good that it's hard to pick one dessert! The food and coffee are excellent too. The rose lemonade is heavenly.

    A large cavernous warehouse space with - as the name states - larger-than-life desserts. Food is also served, including tasty salads and sandwiches, and you can take away some great chocolate.

    Cakes eww. Chocolate bread pudding is amazing. Honestly though, this place is extremely successful but they refuse to provide air conditioning in 90 degree heat #pissedcustomer

    Never ever a disappointment. Everything here is amazing. Got a chocolate truffle loaf cake... was very good. Although wish I would've got something with more components to it. But not disappointed.

    Environment was amazing, and most of the desserts were great. BUT the chocolate pecan pie I ordered was rock hard and just bad. Can't believe they even serve it there. DON'T ORDER IT!

    The house coffee brewed by Zumbar is a dark roast flair. The flavor is a buttery chocolate that is similar in spirit to the rich desserts also served here.
