Dessert Menu

All of Sweet Surrender’s desserts are made from scratch using only the finest ingredients available. And the kitchen is constantly adding new favorites to the menu of classical desserts that have made Sweet Surrender a popular dessert destination.  

All of our desserts are made to order. As a small business, we do not have room to keep a great number of whole cakes on hand to sell to walk in customers. So we kindly request that customers allow us 48 hours notice when placing orders. While this helps the kitchen at Sweet Surrender stay organized, it also allows for you, the customer, to get exactly what you want.     

Provided here is a menu of some of the café’s most popular desserts. Call for pricing.
