I've been there enough times to earn a permanent spot at spin class to burn up the calories. Much like its French cousin "soirée" (meaning a lively gathering with friends to enjoy music or conversation), this is also a great place to meet friends, have a study group or just hangout. Comfy recliners are at the front of the shop for you to relax, watch TV or enjoy a drink. Wi-Fi and plenty of charging stations are always available and FREE. That's like icing on the cake. My favorite breakfast item is the house made PB&Jam bars with a graham cracker crust, peanut butter and naturally made fresh fruit jam. That's considered a healthy treat, right?

There's a reason this is St. Pete's favorite dessert and wine bar. They carry a good selection of wines and at least six local craft beers on tap at all times. Their beverage menu includes twenty five items for humans as well as unlimited water bowls for our pets. Did I say pets? Yes, this dessert bar is totally pet friendly and dedicated to community events with Pet Pal Animal Shelter and Southeastern Guide Dogs.

Enjoy yourself

Their cake selection comes in "mini", slice or full cake sizes. Mini's are only a buck, as in $1. The minis can be paired with your favorite wine or craft beer in a shot glass as a "hook up".  Cake flavors include Miss Scarlett's Red Velvet, Chocolate Salted Caramel, Blackout and Carrot. You can also have Cheesecake made with real creamy cream cheese, French Macarons (lemon, orange creamsicle, salted caramel and more), creme brûlée or cream pies in a jar. They also have all natural and freshly made pup-cakes for our furry friends. 

They frequently have "guest baker" events. So go ahead and set your date if you like to bake and you have some special talent and desserts you're wanting to share with your friends. (swah-rey) is closed on Mondays, because even bakers need a rest, and HAPPY HOUR is Tuesday-Friday between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. for 1/2 price draft beer and $1.00 off wine glass.

So as the saying goes...when the going gets tough, the tough need dessert.
