Covered in chocolate, oozing with flavour – Mar 2011

“Right behind the Winnipeg Art Gallery is a diner filled with twinkling lights and decadent desserts. This dessert café offers a variety of tortes, cakes, cookies, dainties, as well as entrees, appetizers, sandwiches and a bar of wines, beers, liqueurs and specialty coffees.

The coffee menu is delicious; the caramel latté I had was the perfect accompaniment to any dessert, particularly the delectable zebra brownie. They have many tea and coffee options as well as a low fat latté.

The prices are a little steep for students, and Dessert Sinsations posts that they reserve the right to charge a minimum of $8 per person. Cappuccinos, hot chocolate and lattés are $4 or more for a cup. Slices of cake are at least $8 and so are slices of pie.

Dessert Sinsations has alternative options for celiacs, vegans and diabetics. The dessert options are rotated every day so you’ll always have a fresh batch of choices. The turnover at Sinsations is fast and efficient. You’ll be enjoying your food with your closest friends and the rest of the café too because it’s busy and loud, but the hustle and bustle can make for a great place to socialize.”
