Well I have to start off by saying that this bakery is great! I always buy the yellow cakes I think they are the best. The yellow cakes are tasty, light and fluffy. You can taste the real butter and extracts that are used to prepare the cake. I really don't care for the pound cake, but that is because I don't like heavy thick cakes from anywhere. I am always confused at birthday parties when the grown ups get the pound cake for the kids, and the kids just lick the iceing off the cake and just leave a block on their plate. Just buy the yellow cake! DUH!!! The cake at the party is not just for you!. The cookies, cupcakes, and dinner rolls from Denises are also delicious. Denises is worth the money, and by the way they are not even that expensive like other upper class bakeries like Bredenbecks etc etc. To me the cake even tastes better. The only negative things I can say about Denises is that the wait to order and pick up is RIDICULOUS!!!! Please find a better way to do things. Sometimes I want a Denises cake but I just simply do not feel like the wait, therefore it pushes me to go to Sams Club and pick up a cake. Please find a better system. Those numbers, long lines out of the door, and terrible parking is torture on your customers. I know that you are getting enough money to expand and get a bigger place. Please try, I still luv you but something has got to give!
We decided to try the Ashburner out for dinner because the menu looked great. So many choices led the 2 of us to pick 1 appetizer and 2 entres, all to share. First - quesadillas. Amazing. They had the perfect proportion of cheese to meat/tortilla, contained corn and were speckled with the tiniest bits of peppers, which gave the perfect amount of oomph without being overpowering. Second - White pizza with spinach and tomatoes. The tomatoes were a great sized chunk and despite loving garlic, I used non because this pizza had its own unique almost buttery richness. Third - Bacon cheeseburger - cheddar and medium well. The perfect burger! Came with a few delicious fries, was cooked exactly how we ordered and let me tell you about the bacon. I rarely eat it and when I do, its usually a fake piece with a burger. This bacon was so flavorful, I almost ordered a side. Next day - we had enough leftovers to each enjoy the pizza and a small slice of quesadilla, which we looked forward to all morning. Very very impressed. Also, the bill came to $26 (we didn't drink but they did have a fabulous martini offering) and the restaurant itself was nice inside. Will be back for sure!
I just bought a place a couple blocks from Caffe Valentino. When I moved in, I thought, great, when I'm hungry and have no food in the house, I only have to walk a couple blocks. My first weekend in the neighborhood, my friends and I decided to try it out, because none of us had ever been there. When we got there the place was pretty busy, (which surprised me because I hadn't heard of it until I moved up the street). Once we sat down, we were eying up the tables around us to see what they were eating. Everything looked and smelled great. We all got different stuff, and loved everything. I got Gnocchi with Red Sauce. It was clearly homemade and light. Probably the best I've ever had, and I love gnoochi. My other friend got the pasta special, which was Black Fettucini with Shrimp in a spicy red sauce. He said it was great. For dessert we had Tiramisu, also excellent. The service was friendly and accommodating. Any foodies who that haven't found this place yet, should go check it out.
