As mentioned in previous posts, this place is easy to miss with its black exterior. Even when we were right across the street from the place we werent sure if was open as the curtains were drawn. The interior is cozy and there are plenty of interesting knickknacks to look at.
Seeing that it was a saturday evening (8pm) and there were 5 people in our party, I was afraid that there would be a long wait, but luckily the one large table was available. The lineup at the door quickly grew after we arrived and some would-be customers left disappointed.
We ordered the zuccotto, sweet revenge, tiramisu, berry trifle, and chocolate pudding cake for dessert, and a large kyoto cherry rose tea to share. The standouts of the desserts were the tiramisu, trifle and the warm chocolate pudding cake. The berry trifle and tiramisu are perfect for those who prefer less sweet desserts. And the chocolate pudding cake is a full of rich fudgy goodness (good for those with a sweet tooth). The zuccotto cake was quite tasty too. The Sweet Revenge dessert was just a small and very dense piece of cake covered with chocolate. This was the least favourite of the group.
The large Kyoto Cherry Rose tea was enough for everyone to drink seconds and thirds since we refilled our pot 1.5 times. The tea had a delicious aroma and was great for cleansing the palate when sampling all of the different desserts.
Service was pretty indifferent and the server was slow to take our orders.
