Sweet Gallery: Indulge Yourself

When I visited Leaside's Sweet Gallery (694 Mt. Pleasant Rd) around lunchtime the other day, I was immediately confronted with a dilemma. Which should I have first: lunch or dessert?


Tearing my gaze away from the tempting glass display of luscious-looking pastries, cakes and chocolates, I dutifully pored over the menu. The Sweet Gallery offers a wide range of soups and sandwiches ranging from $3.95-$7.95, but I end up ordering one of the daily specials, Chicken Paprikash ($8.95).

But by this time my willpower had crumbled. I was sitting right beside the pastry display (how much torture do you expect a chocolaholic to endure?) with a clear view of the assorted pastries, chocolates, cakes and flans. All of the Sweet Gallery's delicacies are made specifically for the store.

I end up ordering a Chocolate Mouse ($1.95). After admiring the craftmanship for several seconds, I bite the wee thing's head off. Mmmm. A caramel cookie base hidden beneath the chocolate adds crunch.

I took the Chicken Paprikash home, where it made an excellent dessert later in the day.
