    Cakes are very nice and delicious but the price could be more reasonable. It's a shame that they have shakes on the menu but they stopped today.

    Hi Francesca, thanks for feed back no Neon Nights. We are a little confused, you say that value for price is "Very Cheap" but then go to say that "the price could be more reasonable". ??

    Everything was spot on, great desserts, coffee and customer service! The neon dessert specials were so delish, not heavy or sickening Will definitely be back
