-3 Snaps! Try it. You might like it.
Opening four months ago, the Desert Spot at Toffee to Go on Bay to Bay Boulevard is becoming a neighborhood favorite. At first glance one might wonder if another coffee and dessert shop is necessary with Starbucks just doors away. What they may not know is many of the food items our pact with the sweet goodies from its parent company Toffee to Go. In 2013 Oprah Winfrey chose the toffee as one of her favorites. Combine that with the fact that the pastries are baked by Chef Sharon Nasrallah ( they call her Chef Nas) and you may want to give it a try.
The interior is very café like. It is centered by a marble counter offering the aforementioned pastries, Kahwa coffee of several varieties, Working Cow ice cream, and Mike's pies. On the left is a merchandising area and on the right tables and chairs for dining in or doing some work with the free Wi-Fi.
On my visit I ordered the Coffee Toffee cake ($2.95), an item not listed on the menu. It is a thick slice of light Bundt sized cake swirled with pecans and toffee and drizzled with their house toffee dessert sauce. I've had this creamy buttery syrup before. It's made with heavy whipping cream and it is divine.
In the freezer there are 10 different colorful varieties of Working Cow ice cream, 3-4 of which are made with the house toffee. Macaroons and Mike's pies fill out the dessert list. According to their general manager Courtney Schalk, daughter of Toffee to Go owners, they hope to have a grand opening in February.
