Only came here for the desserts and I had the matcha lava cake which was amazing. I love lava cake anyway, and it paired well with the matcha and the green tea ice cream. Not much more to say really - it was so good!

The place is small and cosy! Go for it and try as many options as possible! All's original, delicious and well prepared, not to mention how well their employees treat you! The photo is from one of the dishes: warm dark chocolate cake filled with green tea ganache served with green tea ice cream! Delicious!

The cookie skillet was incredible. The cookie was soft and gooey, and the salty pretzels added the perfect crunch. The milky puff, however, was disappointing. It had basic flavors and lacked texture. My friend and I wanted to leave on a high note, so we finished it off with a warm Oreo cookie, which was well worth the $4 and I'd say rivals Levain.

This place is amazing not only for the quality, but the presentation of their desserts. We tried three different items and an espresso plus the mango passion soda. We chose the Yuzu taste, the Golden Toast and the Milky Puff. The bill was $38.87 total. Portions are large.

Best to go in the middle of the day when Spot is not insanely busy. The Harvest is really amazing (chocolate crumble that resembles soil that comes in a plant container with other ingredients) and such a funny concept. All the ingredients work together and the stroke of genius of pouring the sauce anglaise to water the plant really meshes the whole dessert together. I could have done without the sorbet on the side. The green tea and chocolate ganache is also really good. Definitely a must go with a few people so you can order a few to taste together.
