I normally don't have dessert, especially at brunch, but as part of the three courses, I went for it. The first one you see here is the Cheesecake with a Blueberry Sorbet. To be honest, the blueberry sorbet is what sold me on this, and I'm glad we tried it. The flavour was really rich and the cheesecake wasn't overly dense. On their menu since the very beginning is the Chocolate Pudding with Crystallized Violets. I love edible flowers! Serving portion has gotten smaller over time, but it's still enough for a sweet treat to end your meal. The pudding isn't too rich, but it is velvety smooth. To get the full sensation of the treat, dip your spoon in the middle, scoop up some of the violets and go right down to the bottom, getting some of the whipped cream and pudding. That perfect spoonful will give you the creamy pudding, the airiness of the whipped cream, followed by a crunch of the violets. Oh, and the drink you see being the dessert is their Blueberry Sangria...I found it weird that they used lemon slices with the skin stil on them for fruit, there was nothing in the glass that was edible. I'm used to sangria with mango, grapes and more fruit. I would go with a glass of pinot gris next time.
