The other night, a friend and I decided to try a new-to-us place called Extraordinary Desserts. The location we visited is only about a mile and a half from my house, and it was incredible. This is the same-day cake counter. They do wedding cakes and catering and the like, but they also have a huge walk-up dessert counter, plus a large selection of teas and coffees.
The line took about 25 minutes, from the time we joined it to the time we sat at our table, but then our tea and desserts came out almost immediately. Considering the fact that it was Friday night, the wait wasn’t bad at all. And wow was it worth the wait. We ordered a roobios chai tea to split, and a raspberry tart (not my order so I don’t remember exactly what it was) that tasted amazing. And then I had my bread pudding.
The bread pudding was one of the specials and just beautiful. I hadn’t ordered ice cream with it (so glad, it’d be too rich with it, I think) but that scoop on the side? That’s the real deal, homemade whipped cream. SO GOOD. The bread pudding is made with chocolate croissants and very light, all things considered. I couldn’t finish it by a mile, so I brought the vast majority of it home. This will definitely warrant a return trip.
