Can I please marry Reynolds? Haha. But seriously the desserts here are elite and top class. Each bite of sponge, crusty biscuit, jelly, cake, had distinctive flavours oozing in your mouth. My favourite was the strawberry and matcha cake with overall balanced flavours that immersed...in your mouth. Love it here, $15-$18 a cake and you will be impressed.More

Just fame, tiramisu wasn’t good. We went for the first time and due to a lack of supply as they only had one choice, we tried tiramisu.

Majority of Aussie come here, admit it - for the guy whom they saw for 2 seasons in Masterchef! And for literally every single item being served, he lives upto the reputation. A kind of dessert not available anywhere else - simple supreme...

Now this is the best non alcoholic bar I have ever been into. There is a line but service is quick and the desserts are fantastic. Some of the best I have ever had. Not cheap but compared to the price in restaurants for what...you get it is terrific. A must tryMore

Place is ok to do pick-ups only - don't ever order any cakes. We recently ordered a cake for my daughter and paid in full a few days earlier. One day before the birthday one of the staff called us and said they won't be...able to deliver the cake. Really bad customer service. When we requested to talk to the manager we were informed he is busy and unable to comeMore

Best dessert I had for a while! We ordered Mr Pistachio, a must, and the Zen cake. We will go back to try a couple of new dessert (black sesame slice looks so yummy).

Came here for dessert after eating Italian for lunch. Wasn’t really hungry but was persuaded to try something. The passion fruit/ berry sponge slice was out of this world. So glad I tried it

We had the set menu which included savoury snacks and 4 different desserts. We also shared the signature dish "Golden Snitch". The place is in Spice Alley in Chippendale with the restaurant upstairs and take away downstairs. The venue is lovely and the staff are...friendly. The food is very special. Beautiful to look at and complex interesting flavours. The sweetness is subtle and never over powering. This is an adult experience not to be missed. Leave the kids at home.More

We went there for sweets after eating somewhere else in Spice Alley. The fare is inventive and tastes spectacular but as far as I know it’s desserts only. There are many places there to eat for mains. Hope this helps?

Yes you can. Order whatever you like off the counter and pick a seating outside the shopfront.
