3rd Time Not a Charm! – My 2 cousins live nearby & have raved about this place since it opened. The first time I went in there I tried a cupcake and was very unimpressed! It was so dry! The cupcakes are also huge so you think you’re getting a big dessert for your money, but after one bite I didn’t want the rest. Plus, there’s so much cake it’s impossible to get a good cake-to-frosting ratio. At my cousins’ urging, I gave the place a second try on another visit. I tried what I think they call cake truffles, but what I have always refer to as cake balls. Again, I was disappointed. I love to bake and have made better cupcakes and cake balls using boxed cake mixes & frosting from a can!
The 3rd chance for this place came when I helped my cousin pick up the pre-ordered cupcakes for my other cousin’s bridal shower. The order was incorrect and after dealing with a very rude woman behind the counter for about 10 mins we learned she was the owner and there was nothing she was willing to do to fix the problem. We ended up with a couple dozen horribly dry cupcakes that didn’t match our order.
Thankfully, this summer, my cousins came to visit me out on the East coast, & I had the pleasure of taking them to real bakeries & cupcake shops. They both agreed they won’t be going back to this joint!
Not So Thrilled – Since we don't have any bakeries to speak of in south Katy, I had high hopes for this one. It has many positives, but I'm a bit perplexed about the rave reviews. I find the cupcakes to be very dry, especially for the price. I'm not giving up on them, though. Perhaps they will read this and make the necessary changes.
Death by Cupcake...Who would've thought?!?! – Friday's Margaritaville, Saturday's Lemon Tart...Oh my! It doesn't get much better than this place! I ordered a dozen of these babies for a dinner party and many of my guest took their desert home because they wanted others to see it before they took a bite out of their lovely beauties!! The cupcakes and taste even better!! Make sure to try the Friday Margaritaville...it's a personal favorite of mine with it's real baked in tequila! YUM!
Well worth the drive!! – Made the trek from Sugar Land to get some goodies for my sweetie, and dear friends. Easy to find, charming dessert shop! There was plenty of help who were polite, and I was waited on pretty quickly even tho the place was hopping!
I strongly recommend this delightful shop! I bought a selection of cupcakes, tarts, and a cream puff (hubby's fave). Everything wonderful! Even the other customers were delightful!!
Please come to Sugar Land!!
Wonderful Desserts! – This place is so great! I love to stop by for dessert with some friends in the evenings. They have some tables set up outside to enjoy the nice weather and inside the atmosphere is awesome! There are plenty of desserts to choose from and if you don't know what something is, just ask and they will tell you! The cookies are my favorite! They also make great smoothies and coffee drinks. This is definitely one of the best places to meet an old friend to catch up or just to stop in by yourself for a treat!
Best desserts in town – I have been a loyal customer at Oh La La for a while now and I have to say that they are the best place in town for any type of dessert you are looking for. I have never bought anything that I didn't like there and never had anyone complain about this place. There is a reason there are so many 5 star reviews. Don't read the bad reviews, they obviously do not know what they are talking about. I regret that they had bad service but I just want to say that I have never been disappointed at Oh La La. Go out of your way 2 minutes to stop by this place and grab a piece of cake, muffins, cookies, coffee, etc. You will NOT regret it!
Still the Best – I have been a customer at Ooh La La ever since it opened a couple years back. I have continued to be impressed with the quality, freshness and variety of their desserts. I have explored numerous other dessert shops (crave, Dessert Gallery, etc) but none come close to topping Ooh La La.
I continue to trek far out to Katy just for the delicious desserts (I can never leave without a Chocolate Chewy cookie!), the pleasant atmosphere, and the service. As a response to recent reviews, I must say that I, myself, have never received less than attentive service from the Ooh La La staff. Both the front staff and the pastry chefs have always been very helpful.
Moreover, the creative minds behind the menu at this top Houston dessert spot have never ceased to surprise and delight my taste buds, and the special orders they can do are phenomenal. I expect Ooh La La to be a stable of the Houston dessert scene for years to come, and hope that the rumors of expansion are true!
Indifferent – this place is just adorable! everything looks so cute, the tables and chairs and the general atmosphere is so inviting. the cupcakes look really pretty and the other dessert items look pretty cute. however, i would have to say the taste is mediocre. not bad, but not great.
anyway, the point of my post. all of these reviews below me seem extremely passionate about the art of the cupcake and this place in general. all the good ratings are so over the top only the owner or someone else who would benefit would write such things. furthermore, the bad ratings could only be written by a person who is allergic to dessert. the reviews on this site are crazy! the bottom line is that if you have a lot of extra money sitting around and are too lazy to bake for your own family, take them here.
Yummy desserts; Great experience always – It's disturbing to read such strong negative reviews for a place that is so good. Why such anger about dessert?
The staff is young, but very helpful with great ideas for solutions to my problems on how to display and how to serve the desserts I buy there. They have handled multiple special orders for me, including a large party, with outstanding results. I have found every worker there to be polite and responsive. If they seem brisk or rude to you, it can be a busy and fast-paced place to work!
The desserts are delicious at Ooh La La, and they have always delivered as promised. While I know that there are good grocery store bakeries out there, Ooh La La is special and dependable for every occasion.
A huge disappointment! – I heard about ooh la la from a friend of mine and decided to give it a try early last week. Upon walking into the restaurant i was instantly impressed with the wonderful decor and atmosphere. I was so excited to eat the pretty cupcakes! Much to my disappointment, the pros stopped there. The staff was rude and clearly wanted to be elsewhere, I kept overhearing their discussion of parties and other things that were completely inappropriate for a business establishment! I ordered a fruit cheesecake and a latte. The cheesecake looked very pretty but it unfortunately tasted old and hard. It definitely did not taste like it was freshly baked or worth the price. I definitely will not be returning!
