Weirdly enough, I didn't have any desserts there, although it's primarily a cake shop. The London Fog I ordered was excellent, though, with a good balance between the vanilla flavour and the Earl Grey flavour. It was also fairly cheap as far as specialty tea...More

The cakes are wondrous and plentiful but the staff seem disengaged and there is a feeling like the best days of this establishment may have come and gone. The restaurant was not particularly clean, the price (OK for the area) were high and I think...More

Stopped in for a latte and slice of cake - yummy! Only one vegan option, but it was delicious. Sad we weren't able to make it back again while we were in town!

Went for dessert. The carrot cake was moist, delicious and not overly sweet. I found the coffee a bit on the watery side (I drank it black). There is not much of a view when we visited since there was a Canada 150 exhibit installed...More

While visiting the city with my 6 year old grand daughter, we stopped here for an afternoon drinks break. I had an iced cafe latte; and my grand daughter had a chocolate milk-shake. The coffee tasted like a coffee - and was not too milky....More

We visited here in July 2017 after a light lunch. Had some chocolate banana and some lemon coconut cake. It's a little pricey here but the home made desserts are very delicious. Get a seat by the window to watch Westboro pulsing by. 😁

Oh So Good Desserts and Coffee House was established in 1994. The original idea behind the café was to replicate a German Berlin-style coffee house. Today it has evolved into a place which offers a vast array of decadent desserts to arouse any appetite. Our drinks are uniquely crafted and our coffee is always blended to perfection. We specialize in cakes and offer over 35 different types at any given time in our downtown location (25 York St.). We have recently opened a new location in Westboro (261 Richmond Rd. W.) We serve many of the same desserts found Downtown in addition to a food menu. Our food menu is still evolving to better satisfy customer demand. We also offer alcoholic beverages in Westboro to compliment our menu. In addition to excellent coffee and dessert, we display the work of local artists. The art is regularly rotated and the pieces are for sale by the artists. Be sure to stop by either location for a sweet taste you will never forget!
