Local, Delicious, Perfect. That's Desert Flour.
This place is a must-stop destination for me and my partner. Every morning we make a point to ride over, grab an ice coffee, a chocolate croissant or keesh, and enjoy. The women who work here are wonderful, the food is fresh and delicious, and I can't imagine a more perfect place
Favorite Dish: Desert Flour has delicious, cold-brewed ice coffee that is the perfect way to start your morning. Sit outside in the sun, gazing out at Bell Rock and the beautiful vista.
This is just the place to drop in for a midday treat. They also serve breakfast and lunch. You order at the counter, then have a seat and the food is brought to you. The day we were there, there was an amazing array of treats -- various cheesecakes, 1 1/2" thick lemon squares, lemon tarts, mouth-watering strawberry tarts, huge slabs of brownies, AND a berry mousse cake stuffed with white chocolate and chunks of cheesecake. Yikes! it was a sugar fanatic's dream come true!
Service was robotic and indifferent, and perhaps because it was late afternoon, near closing time. Later that day, we saw the staff extremely animated at the bar in Dahl and Deluca's, so now we know that their smile muscles work.
Favorite Dish: Since I was getting peckish, I ordered a tuna melt sandwich; it was a bit greasy as they made it like a grilled cheese sandwich, with greens inside. The greens cooked inside the sandwich, making it a little unappetizing, but the sandwich tasted ok. My husband had a personal sausage pizza, which he rated passable. The real focus here is the desserts. We sampled a strawberry tart, lemon tart and brownie, and all were very good, the favorite being the brownie.
Make sure to concentrate only on the baked goods here, and you should come out on a sugar high. Yum.
