My favorite dessert is the macadamia nut hot fudge Sunday. It will not disappoint, ever! The dark fudge sauce and the freshly made ice cream with hunks of macadamia nuts is perfection.

Following dinner, a trip upstairs presents a phone booth-like wine barrel with a choice of music. Dessert menu is extensive.

The Harry Waugh Dessert Room was built as a tribute to Mr. Harry Waugh, an internationally known and respected wine connoisseur, director of Chateau Latour and good friend to Bern Laxer. Waugh's books and personal diaries on wine tasting are well known throughout the world.
