Unbelievable choices, all are outstanding to look at, but the tastes of the 2 I tried were great. I also bought a few things for the road.

Swoon has the best desserts I have ever tasted and I have always had a sweet tooth. It was truly a unique experience because it is not your typical desserts that are being served - ingredients that are made from scratch by the chef and a unique blend that tingles your taste buds. The portions are not to big which... More

I've been to Swoon about 4 or 5 times now, and every time I go I'm always so disappointed when the last dessert is brought to the table, because I don't want it to be the last. I can keep eating and eating desserts. I've always had a sweet tooth but Swoon definitely takes desserts to the next level. I... More

Experienced Swoon for the first time during a Bite Tour of North Park. Wow!!! I am a dessert lover and if I had Oprah's money, I would buy Swoon and make it a franchise. Not only were the desserts works of art but they were also magic in your mouth! Deserting at Swoon needs to be on everyone's Bucket List!!!

Swoon has the best and most unique desserts I've ever had. This chef is a true talent waiting to be discovered. I think it's simply a matter of time before everyone knows about this place. Like one reviewer said, you would expect desserts like this in Paris. Unreal.

Let me start by saying that I NEVER eat dessert. I just don't like it. If there's a cheese plate, I'm in. Otherwise I pass it on to my neighbor. Sweets are just not my thing. I fully expected to have the same scenario play out on my visit to Swoon. So imagine my surprise when I looked down and... More

You might expect to find desserts like this at a high-end place in Paris or London. But this gem is right here in North Park. When most people take that first bite, it takes them a few minutes to wrap their brain around the complexities and nuances of flavors. This is no ordinary dessert place; don't expect to find apple...

What a unique concept for dessert?--watching the chef prepare his creations in front of you. The mix of ingredients and flavors are masterpieces.

While dining out, our group stopped at the newly opened Swoon for dessert. We each had the fixed prix of 3 courses plus a caracara sorbet starter. All flights were an incredible and imaginative blend of flavors and textures... totally unbelievable! Swoon also offers a wide variety of top-shelf coffees and teas for pairing with dessert. The wait staff are... More

As a special guest prior to opening night, We did not know what to expect from such a unique store. We were amazingly surprised. Ian and Evan treated us to a five course dessert extravaganza. As they continued to work on the next course they answered our questions about tastes being consummated and the very unique spices involved. They remained... More
