Beyond Bread/Something Sweet Dessert Lounge

The choice of desserts from the case at Beyond Bread is beyond abundant. The selections are so varied that it makes decisions difficult. There are artistic looking 4-inch fruit tarts and huge, scrumptious cookies, including chocolate-chip and ginger-snap varieties. In addition, cakes, lemon bars and two types of crème brulee are available. On a recent visit, it was the magic bar that grabbed our attention. A mixture of coconut, nuts and chocolate bits in a creamy layer swimming atop a graham-cracker crust, the bar reminded us of a cookie variation of a dessert that was popular back in 1984, or maybe even before. Magically wonderful, it certainly was.

Come to a place where the desserts themselves actually look better than the pictures on the menu! At Something Sweet, you will find a simple atmosphere where one can relax and savor desserts seemingly from heaven. Huge cakes, pies, cheesecakes and more—with or without ice cream—await you there. Delightful beverages—including a full menu page of teas, with no fewer than six varieties of green tea—complement the treat. Hang out and savor with free Wi-Fi, computers if you forget yours, and board games. They're open late, too: from 5 p.m. to midnight on weekdays, with extended hours on weekends. We always wanted to skip the appetizer and main course, and go straight to dessert. Here, we can!
