Review: Bittersweet offers cocktails, dessert
Located next to Oro on East Martin Street, Bittersweet combines cocktails, coffee and decadent desserts for the perfect spot to indulge.Posted — Updated
We decided to try two desserts and then bring home some cookies for our babysitters. We got a slice of the Derby Pie, a chocolate bourbon pecan pie drizzled with salted caramel. This was decadent and hit the spot since we were wanting something chocolate. Our only complaint was that the pie was served cold. If it had been warm, it would have melted in our mouths! I would have also liked just a little more caramel sauce.
Our next selection: The Peach Doughnut, which was a cinnamon doughnut topped with vanilla ice cream and fresh peach compote. Delicious and not too sweet. Again, if the doughnut had been warm it would have been a homerun!
We brought home the Cookie Plate, which contained their versions of an Oreo, lemon square and the one-of-a-kind Stoner Cookie (which contains potato chips, chocolate and just about everything else you can imagine!) The lemon square was delicious. The Oreo was soft and filled with just enough cream. The Stoner Cookie had a nice sweet and salty kick to it.
