So fun to stop here after dinner to get some dessert. We had a slice of their chocolate cake. One slide was plenty to share among four servings. They also had great chocolate gifts which we bought as souvenirs. Definitely worth the visit!

We have stopped by for ice cream at this dessert restaurant for many years. There are all sorts of tasty sweets . We prefer the German Chocolate ice cream. Another favorite ( no longer available) is malted milk ball ice cream.

Large selection of ice cream and desserts their cakes are pretty good but not great very sugary.... And not really balanced... Since they paid parking it's not really worth going since their are so many places in Houston with the similar stuff
