We were visiting Portland and it was raining and I had seen the ad in the paper. Couldn't find Wharf Street so we called. The owner actually answered the phone and gave directions. So glad we didn't give up! We were the only ones there when we arrived. We were made to feel right at home.The Martinis were so good and the chocolate tart, (that the owner makes herself) were just yummy! She even makes her own Limoncello! My husband who is from Italy found all the different things he likes that most places don't carry. Nice cozy place for a drink and something sweet. Well worth the stop!

The drinks are pretty good and the desserts were good, although quite heavy and sweet. What stood out as a negative was the atmosphere. We have been to similar places in other cities and the atmosphere so often soft and almost romantic, especially as you Are sipping chocolate martinits and eating delicious desserts. This place was like a regular bar, that happened to serve dessert. The waitress was friendly and gave us tips of places to see on our trip.

If you want a dessert bar, this is your place! Beautifully done truffle chocolate cake & Creme Brulee. Decadence all the way around. Excellent choice of ports and dessert wines. Service was very good. Treat yourself!

This is a nice place to come for an after dinner cocktail and dessert. Fun time talking to bartender and the people at the bar.

The highlight here are the many delicious martinis. My favorite was the peanut butter martini. Nice and strong, too. Good desserts as well. Skip dessert at your restaurant and go here. Right in the middle of everything.
