A friend recommended that we stop in for a sweet treat and having been caught in a rogue snowstorm we decided it was a good chance. Deciding what cake or cheesecake to try was the first battle - finishing it was a battle all its own. I tried the Tiramisu cake, which was quite tasty. A large slice that I... More

The restaurant itself was really nice inside, with outdoor patio space too. The cakes were reasonably priced for how much you got, and the staff were really friendly and fast.

The cake was pretty good, I like it, was my first carrot gluten free cake, was soft and with balance flavor. I will recommend the cake.

For all types of cake. But I personally loved the chocolate truffle. You can't resist this temptation. They offer also many other types. You need to take the experience.

If you are looking for a sweet snack and having a good time with your family this is the place to go. All the flavours they have makes you want to forget about all the healthy eating you are trying to do and more about how many cheat days you can have going to this place. Is all worth it... More

Great atmosphere, the coffee is very good and the cake is out of this world! This would be a perfect place for a first date, there is no way it wouldn't lead to a second date. You could have zero conversation and the cake would make the date more than worthwhile.

We stopped here for cake and coffee - there is a large selection of cake, coffees and various cold drinks. The cake was fantastic, the slices were more than enough - could easily share one between two. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would visit again.

Thank alexmacdonald17

Oh So Good Desserts and Coffee House was established in 1994. The original idea behind the café was to replicate a German Berlin-style coffee house. Today it has evolved into a place which offers a vast array of decadent desserts to arouse any appetite. Our drinks are uniquely crafted and our coffee is always blended to perfection. We specialize in cakes and offer over 35 different types at any given time in our downtown location (25 York St.). We have recently opened a new location in Westboro (261 Richmond Rd. W.) We serve many of the same desserts found Downtown in addition to a food menu. Our food menu is still evolving to better satisfy customer demand. We also offer alcoholic beverages in Westboro to compliment our menu. In addition to excellent coffee and dessert, we display the work of local artists. The art is regularly rotated and the pieces are for sale by the artists. Be sure to stop by either location for a sweet taste you will never forget!
