The daily pizza was alright. It was promised to be the heritage tomatoes and pattypan squash. It came as heritage tomatoes and yellow and green zucchini. It is fast-baked so a little char is part of the charm.
We went across the street for dessert. Café My House have all vegan and gluten-safe. It has a dessert sampler. It might be better suited for 4 than 2 people since these are big samples.
In front is key lime (non-)cheesecake. The cheesecakes seem all the same base with an extra flavour added. I suppose that makes sense from production point of view. No variation in texture. Same density, same crumb base. Creamy, smooth. Beautifully displayed.
Used to eating chocolate 80-90% pure, unless something is really richly chocolately it seems chocolate flavoured. The truffles seemed dense like rum-balls and carob-flavored? The problem with loving chocolate is disliking so much chocolate. It’s hard to knock it out of the park for me.
The tiramisu had the layers and the bitter coffee flavour that was bright and interesting. It would be my second favourite. A thicker but lighter more distinctive layer of filling would kick it up another notch.
