Been having desert here since 1998. It's never changed... never improved. It's mediocre. Nice for the variety but honestly Perkins has better desert.

This place has a large variety of desserts ,all great. Especially the brownie. Very busy during the weekend and the evening. Be prepared to wait about 20 min for a table during those times. Staff very friendly even when place is busy

A friend and I went specifically to have coffee and dessert around 8 PM. There were quite a few tables available but the restaurant certainly filled up while we were there with people waiting at the door when we exited. I had an amazing heavy...More
