If chocolate is involved, sign me up!

I love to eat and I love to try new foods. I enjoy eating in and out equally. I decorate cakes as a (paid) hobby. There is a 90% chance that I will order chicken in a restaurant. Forced tipping for substandard service (aka svc charge) is a BIG pet peeve.

disappointed

This is the latest installation of a popular dessert chain. I was here for a mid-afternoon snack. The restaurant was practically deserted [no pun intended]. I waited in vain for my friend to show up, enjoying the view from the picture window, and then ate alone.

The showcase of pies looked scrumptious, but the one I picked seemed to be more of a pie-shaped cake. Coffee was lukewarm. But the cashier was incredibly nice and even offered me to use the office phone to call my friend, in lieu of a payphone. I am not inclined to return.

Chocolate Lasagna pie

This is chocolate cake with a thin, flavorless cream cheese layer and a slightly thicker chocolate mousse layer on top. It looked lovely in the showcase, but on the plate it fell apart. The cake was on the dry side.

Group Service Charges
Evil dirty rotten service charges. I don't like them and I try to avoid places that slap them on to the bill. If the policy is upfront on the menu, it's more tolerable. But sometimes the charges sneak on, especially without merit.
