Venue Review: Francesca's Dessert Caffe
The sign on the wall at Francesca's says, "Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first." Better yet, why not make an entire meal of desserts? For an appetizer, select from a couple dozen pastries, all made in house: perhaps a simple cookie or scone for a light starter, or a carob bar if you're really health-conscious; heartier appetites may prefer a the coconut and chocolate richness of German chocolate pie or the spicy moistness of carrot cake. Choose an entree from Francesca's homemade ice creams: a rotating list of eighteen flavors, including the likes of rum raisin, Mandarin orange, cinnamon chip, and lemon, pear, pineapple or jasmine tea sorbetto. For dessert? Go back for seconds.
