Oh So Good Desserts
Just off the main strip, only moments from the National Gallery and our beloved Parliament
buildings, you will find Oh So Delicious Desserts. A converted 2 story home, with front porch and a tall set of
stairs. On the side of the building, a huge banner that no one could miss, tells you where you are.
125 Murrey St., Ottawa
Inside, the main floor is painted black, with murals decorating the walls in a jazzy art
The chairs and tables are made of wood and relatively comfortable. In the back you can get your palms read when the
psychic is in, though she was not in at the time. The interior has a somewhat home made look, but it adds a lot
to the atmosphere. When crowded, there is a ‘wait to be seated' sign, but being the only ones there, we found our
A good portion of the floor space is given to the preparation area, which is located behind
a hige dessert case. In the case you will find around 30 different creations to tantalize your taste buds and
written right on the case glass are the names for each dessert. We looked through the selection before taking
At the table we where given a menu, which listed all the desserts. We looked through it for
interesting desserts we might have missed. We ended up ordering what we had already selected from our perusal of the
dessert case and some coffee. The coffee though, only came in one variety and was rather plain.
All in all, an interesting restaurant-like twist on the café. They want you to feel like
your in a trendy gourmet restaurant ordering a fabulously expensive meal, and for the most part they do succeed.
It was comfortable, clean and had a unique ambiance. What else can one ask for in your dessert cafe's. I mean,
if you're going for dessert, why not go to a place that treats dessert like the main course.
Life Is A Slice
White Mocha Chocolate Mousse Cake
Three layers of a somewhat crumbly chocolate cake, and two layers of creamy
deliciousness. The white mocha layer was lite and creamy, with a delicate flavour. The chocolate mousse
layer though, was a little gelatinous. Its flavour was ok, but its texture seemed out of place compared
to the creamy texture of the white mocha.
Overall it was pretty edible, but I have a feeling the chocolate mousse layer was
not supposed to taste like that. I think someone built it wrong. If they could fix that, it would be a
great piece of cake. Oh, and we didn't have to ask for the whip cream. Defiantly a move in the right
direction for any dessert establishment.
Was The Coffee Any Good Jack?
House Blend: Um, yah. It was mediocre coffee. Nothing special at
Again I ask, why doesn't a dessert shop like this offer a selection of coffee's?
