It’s cake meet Tuesday again. This time, Christine joined Polly and I to Notte’s Bon Ton Pastry & Confectionery for a sweet tooth fix. This is the first time we come to this place and we did not have a pleasant experience. I’ll tell you why later.
Notte’s Bon Ton Pastry & Confectionery is located at 3150 West Broadway between Trutch St and Balaclava St. The business is geared more on the take out than eat in although they have a tea room for sit in customer.
Our bad experience came to the fact that we are only allowed to eat the cake we purchased at the tea room with extra service charge provided that we get a drink too. A sign posted in the tea room indicated that there in a minimum charge of $3 or $4 with reading.
Anyway. since we were there already, we just agreed on the extra service charge. Moreover, they do not allow photography of their counter displays as they told me that they do not want other people to copy their products. Hmm, what do you think about that comment?
Here is what we ordered. Christine and I ordered coffee which came in a small metal jug. It is somewhat unique. The coffee costs $1.70.
Polly ordered a Hot Chocolate for $2.50.
We got ourselves a small Blueberry Cheesecake to share. It costs $8.95 but with the service charge, it comes to $10.50.
The Blueberry Cheesecake is very sweet. We had to scrape off the thick layer of confectionery sugar on the top as it’s way too sweet. This cheesecake is also not a full cheesecake as it is a cake with blueberry cheese filing. Polly and I would prefer a full cheesecake.
Well, if you ask me if I would come back again or not, my answer is probably not.
