  • Just eat....all of it.
  • They actually read the 10+ comment cards my wife wrote and just added it a cookie punch card. Happy wife=happy night.
  • Eat everything possible on site. All of it will melt your brain. Fact. The salted caramel sauce is an excellent balance of actual caramelized cane sugar and salt - absolute must for salt/caramel nuts.
  • They have butterbeer... I think that's self explanitory. Also, they have the best cookies I've ever had.
  • Dark decadence to eat + laphroig to sip.
  • Vegan caramel sauce and a vegan dark chocolate cake? Sign me up! Oh wait, I've already had it... So now it's your turn!
  • Sundae. Popcorn makes it surprisingly delicious
  • Get the boozy shakes. They will change your life!
  • The salted caramel shake makes me want to skip all the way home.
  • Get the Peanut Butter Cup! They make good cocktails too!
  • Get the sundae. Vanilla caramel Bourbon goodness
  • The dark decadence was sure decadent.
  • Gotta check this out
  • Everything here is fantastic. If you like oozy, rich chocolate, this is the place to be. Not sure what makes dry burned caramel so special, but it's the cakes I come for.
  • The caramel makes the dark decadence cake. Beware of the strong whiskey flavor in the whiskey cake!
  • Open late is a big draw. One of the best chocolate desserts in town.
  • Autumn Martin serves up cookies and seasonal savory treats like grilled cheese and salads, the real treats at Hot Cakes are the melty centered chocolate cakes and the inventive boozy milkshakes.
  • You can get a tiny hot cake, or a generous slice of smoked chocolate whiskey cake (that's cheaper). Do The Right Thing.
  • Forgo the molten cakes and go straight for the bread pudding and a glass of milk with a chocolate chip with ice cream. NOOOOOICE!
  • The boozy shakes are among the best desserts in town!
