Chocolate with chocolate and so much goodness. Sweet tooth? This is the place to stop! Desserts are house made, change daily, and servings are big

Kaminsky's has a wide variety of desserts. My favorite is the tollhouse pie. My family and I never fail to make it one of our destinations. Don't forget to ask about their milkshakes!

I'm so glad we were willing to wait a little to get a table. The desserts were excellent. We enjoyed a piece of key lime pie and New York style cheesecake. It was absolutely incredible! I would definitely recommend everyone stop by and experience Kaminsky's.

If you want desserts wait and go here. Fabulous cakes and pies. Coffee or nice wine and drinks. You want a Baily's Milk shake if you have room. I love the lemon blueberry cake. Very generous portions of all desserts.

This place is outstanding and a perfect way to end your night! They offer drinks and dessert. I especially love the dessert martinis. There will probably be a wait to get a table, but is usually goes pretty quick. It is well worth your time...More
