The staff was very friendly and helpful. It seemed like our server really liked her job, and I liked how she was attentive when our water glasses were empty but it wasn’t overly attentive just the perfect amount.
The food was good very also photogenic if you’re food blogger, it would be a great place to take wonderful pictures.
The desserts were amazing, wonderfully displayed and tasted amazing.
I had several drinks that I tried that were so good, and the ones I didn’t like because I’m a light tasting drinker I can’t handle hard liquors, but my friends could said they were amazing. A must try is the PB&J old fashioned.
The ambiance in the place looks cute when you walk in but I must say I did not like the bathrooms it could use some work.
I didn’t stay long enough to see the live music after but I would most likely return to check it out.
All in all a fun place to visit

Cinnamon bun cheesecake was legitimately delicious and experience was really good. The only fault was the service was a bit chaotic but it was also a Saturday night and very busy.

The vegan peanut butter cup was very good and the bubble tea daquiri was pretty good. Our servicer was fantastic, cheerful and helpful. My coworkers and I had a great time.

We were just coming for dessert to try out the cake. And the red velvet was dry and had a stale taste to it and Meringue butter cream was subpar. Carrot lava cake was alright but was far too expensive portion wise.

Sadly, did not live up to its hype. Pretty sure desserts were store bought, drinks were boring, atmosphere was dull.

Disappointing visit. Portions were tiny for the cost. Menu appearance less than impressive and missing items the day of our visit. Service was good though.

The café was decent, I felt like they rushed the opening and it was kind of sloppy. The decor didn’t flow together, the brassy Booth look for used and abused. They were scuff marks on brass chairs… overall the aesthetic of the place looked very sloppy…. The deserts were decent but it tasted like it came out of the freezer and one big thing, this is a DESSERT place and you guys don’t serve coffee or tea….. we ended going to The D spot after we finish, to get a cappuccino. Overall, very disappointed in this café……

This was such a bad experience. A million servers kept coming to our table, but then we wouldn’t get our drinks… the drink I had was absolutely disgusting, I was so shocked at how bad it was honestly. I think it is way overpriced, quality of food sucks and servers have no clue what they are doing.

Me and my friend feel like the drinks is overpriced especially the milkshake. Other than that it's good. Need to work on the service. Should not grab the plate without asking if we're finish or not.
