Spin Dessert Cafe and Bistro

Spin Dessert Cafe and Bistro have a few locations in Ontario, and the one in Vaughan, ON, is the closest one to me. I first heard of the establishment when my brother bought me home their traditional New York style plain vanilla cheesecake and and red velvet cheesecake to try. I really enjoyed both desserts, and decided to check out the place for myself with my family (sans mother and grandmother as they're not fans of sweets). I believe that the Vaughan location also follows the same decor scheme as the others do. It's a modern establishment with the bright pink decor, and off-white furniture.


Spin Dessert Cafe and Bistro's menu consist of breakfast items, savory crepe, sweet crepes, cakes, cheesecakes, ice-cream, and drinks (both hot and cold). Some of their cheesecakes are from the well-known USA chain The Cheesecake Factory Bakery, but most of their meal and dessert items are made in-house.

 
Cappuccino ($2.85) - shot of expresso with foamed milk.



Both my brother and I got the chicken Caesar crepe ($11.25 x 2) [chicken Caesar crepe [a fresh crepe filled with chicken, bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, mozzarella cheese and finished with Caesar sauce] which came with a side salad. They used a rather large white plate in contrast to the size of the crepe itself. So when it was brought to our table; it did not look very filling. However, the crepe was filled with plenty of filling inside, and we were satisfied with our meal. Additionally, the overall texture of the crepe was soft with a rather crisp edge, and was thin.


 The steak fajita ($12.99) - a fresh crepe filled with steak, onions, green peppers, salsa and mozzarella cheese, was served with sour cream and guacamole on the side.


Spin Dessert Cafe and Bistro have monthly features where they have desserts and drinks of one particular flavor. For example, we went during the month of Dec (2013) and the the featured flavor was candy cane. I got myself the Holiday Cheesecake ($9.25) - New York-style cheesecake with white chocolate swirls, studded with holiday M&M, and topped with whipped white chocolate mousse. I absolutely loved that they put effort into presentations, as a few places that I have been too often neglect this part. The cheesecake was brightly decorated and very suiting for the holiday seasons. The cheesecake itself was delicious, moist, and full of chocolate flavor.

For the rest of May 2014, the feature flavor is mango. So if you're a fan of mango flavored drinks or desserts, then this month's feature would be perfect for you.Their website changes monthly!

Onto the service; most of the negative reviews online attributes to their service more so than their food. Fortunately, I didn't experience any long wait for either being seated, getting the food or bill. Our server was friendly, quick, and courteous enough throughout our meal.
