They have cakes in here!! I love their cakes because they are not that over decorated, they are simple but the flavor and the taste will amaze you.
worst customer service ever – This place is not upscale at all, they have a menu and I was ordering from that. I've ordered Grandma's salad they did not have that, I've asked for the soup they did not have that either. so I finished by getting a dry yellow vanilla cupcake. very bad management and a poor service. I won't go back ever again.
Amazing cakes – What more could you ask for in a lunch spot? french vanilla cakes was fabulous, brownie was to die for. My friends and I shared desserts following lunch and it was a nice treat.
Eating a healthy veggie wrap followed by chocolate cake should be a daily experience.
Social Media Savvy Bakery – I love the marketing and pictures the Dessert Gallery posts on Facebook. Twice, they have lured me in via the internet for their cajeta coconut cupcakes. They were also published in a study by Rice University for building customer loyalty through social media. The owner personally responds to comments which makes me feel loyal to her business.
The cupcakes and cakes are unique and gorgeous. They also sell home-made doggie treats that smell like peanut butter...good enough for human consumption.
The place is clean and happy. It's good for a children's birthday gathering.
I only wish the staff were more customer-service friendly...like their owner is online. I only have been in the afternoons when it is slower and have been put off a little by their customer service skills...almost as if they were high school kids who were on a work break. Perhaps, they were having sugar lows the last two times I was there.
Very good and friendly! – As an out of town customer, I was looking for a cake or two for my husband's dinner party in town. I was pleased to find a great website online before we went to Houston that outlined all of the prices and details that I needed. I could have even ordered it online and picked it up. But for fear of never being able to find it, I deceided to go to the store. It was alittle difficult to find, as the website had an old address and apparently the cafe moved a few streets down. However, when I walked in, I got great service. I ordered 2 whole cakes, the Oreo and the Chocolate Raspberry Sensation and was given frozen cakes for that evening (bc they were more fresh). The raspberry thawed in time and the Oreo had to stay chilled. I was a bit disappointed with the Oreo having thought there were Oreo's instead (and tere may have been but not in my piece) and would've probably been better with actual cake and not so much mousse. HOWEVER, the raspberry was sooo good! It was not dry like the previous review, so maybe the frizen ones are more fresh. The dinner guests loved the cake (and candles I got there) and so did my husband :) Will go back again!!!
Look Better than they taste – The desserts all look great, but I always find the cakes to be coarse and a little dry. I have eaten here 5 or 6 times. The frosting is always good but they could do much better on the cake batter. Every slice of cake I have ever bought has been very coarse and not light and fluffy. The cupcakes fare much better. Maybe the whole cakes are better.
Great Dessert...more than just Yummy to my Tummy – Wow, there is not much I could say but...YUMMY!!!
I truely recommend the Big O. It is just great
best cake ever! – Oh the cakes here are SO good. I have never had better. I haven't tried the food yet, but intend to. My sister and I shared a slice of chocolate cheesecake. My other sister had the classic diner cake. My brother had the strawberry cream cake. We couldn't keep our forks off each other's cakes! Definitely worth trying!
Best Lemon Cake EVER – Dessert Gallery is a favorite place of mine when my sweet tooth kicks in. They have the best lemon cake I have ever had in my entire life. Sweet, and tart lemon curd filling with a perfect icing. I ordered cupcakes for my wedding from here and my guests loved them. Great size, quality and value for what I paid. The sandwiches here are amazing also. I recommend the Turkey Bombay. The staff is always very nice and generous!
Best CupCakes EVER!!! – We ordered cupcakes for a co-workers baby shower. O.M.G. They were the best cupcakes EVER! We got the chocolate, raspberry & white cupcakes. While they were all good, the white one was the yummiest I have ever had, and I'm usually a fan of chocolate. I was in heaven the whole time. Definate Winner!
