They have awesome desserts! The selection is great. They also have other food options like quesadillas and other snacks. Drinks are also available. Very dark inside it's fun to go with a date or a group of friends.

Went with boyfriend at the time, we got a corner booth....not going to lie, got a little claustrophobic. It's like you're inside of a mountain ride at Disney but can sit and eat in candle light...super dark. Great thing, it's BYOB and it's private so...More
