After a great meal at Bern's, the dessert room is a must. Wonderful homemade desserts and after dinner drinks in the privacy of your own "wine barrel" can't be matched anywhere

Old fashioned private booths ad personal juteboxes! Fresh roasted coffee. Exception carmalized apple pie with cinnamon ice cream. If you are going to one time forget the calories and splurge on desert, this is the place to do it!
