After our disappointing dinner we walked a few doors up to Cafe Otto. We were looking for a great selection of desserts......and we found them.
I was still hungry as I hadn't enjoyed or eaten much of my main meal at Osteria dei Poeti. From the street we viewed the Cafe Otto menu well lit in the menu box out the front and blocking the view into the gorgeous, shaded and heated outdoor area. It was far too cold to sit outside so we tried our luck inside. It was really busy but after some discreet maneuvering by the staff we landed on the vibrant red lounges chairs at the rear. Most of the wooden chairs seen in the photo have been replaced by plush red high back chairs adding a splash of colour to the muted dining space.
The dessert menu is impressive and there is an option for ice cream and/ or King Island double cream with each offering. As a closet Cherry Ripe fan I was hooked on the Cherry Ripe sundae whilst my dinner buddies opted for the Rocky Road sundae, Caramel fudge ball and Apple crumble. Well, we would have forgone dinner entirely with the size of these desserts! There were many stares and double takes as our desserts made their way from the kitchen to our table.
I sunk back into the lounge and enjoyed every rich, chocolate, diabetic coma, mouthful. There wasn't much talking amongst our group. The sugar rush was sensational. The Cherry Ripe sundae had large chunks of homemade cherry ripe and plenty of fudge, ice cream, cream and strawberries. I was one very happy chocoholic. Equally so, my dinner buddies were impressed - we'll be back.
