I’ve found a new popular dessert place from my friends that opened about 4 months ago, so i decided that it was my next place to visit. It is located in downtown Montreal on St. Mathieu street, where Nos Thés was previously situated.
Upon arrival, there was no free seated place for our group of 7 people. The waitress inquired the people next to a free table for 4 and came back to us saying that they were going to leave soon and that we can now sit at the free table until they leave so that we can also take their table.
The decor of the restaurant is simple and modern. From the entrance your eyes sits on the light bulbs attached to one another and twisted in almost a lettering shape hanged on one half of the brick wall. On the other half of the brick wall, it was decorated with plated New York photographs. The room is filled with small squared wooden tables with black contemporary funky chairs. The restaurant has a clean and fresh feel and was very welcoming. It was filled with people even on a rainy day. At the end of the room, there was a counter filled with aligned cute emoticon cushions which made the atmosphere very friendly. I saw people taking pictures with them which made me want to do the same thing and post it on Instagram.
To see pics of the place, check out Jeff on the Road’s webpage. There are really great pics!
They serve Hong Kong style cakes, ice creams, bubble teas and hot and cold beverages and special desserts. They even have a Tiramisu Potted Plant cake which is in a pot and looks literally like a plant. it can only be taken once you’ve ordered in advance. I took the most popular desserts which are the matcha layered cake and the egg puffs with ice cream. Both desserts were great. The matcha cake is preferably eaten with hot tea or a drink, since the top is dusted with matcha powder and makes the mouth dry. The cake itself is rather soft and a bit dense but easy to chew. I chose the black sesame ice cream to go with my egg-puffs dessert. I loved the egg puffs which were crunchy and soft, the sesame ice cream was okay and a bit too sweet for me. The ice cream was semi hard. I personally prefer soft ice cream. The one thing that i didn’t like was the fact it had those multi coloured cake sprinkles onto the ice cream, which i hated in my mouth which made me enjoy less the ice cream.
I also tried my friend’s soft vanilla ice cream mixed with diced mangoes inside a bun shape like dessert which was very delicious!!! ;-P
Here are 2 pics that i took of my desserts:
Overall the experience, the service and the desserts were really good! I will definitely return to try other treats.
