Café Mirage @ Richmond Hill

A new location of Café Mirage opened a couple of months ago in Richmond Hill. Being a dessert fanatic, I, of course, had to try it out.
The menu here is pretty much the same as the other locations, with a good selection of crêpes, waffles, sundaes and cakes. Café Mirage also serves lunch and dinner food, but I've never eaten here other than for desserts. On this occasion, one of our party ordered the perfect couple: one side of the plate features a single scoop of small-batch vanilla ice cream covered in fresh berries and strawberry purée. The other boasts a scoop of rich chocolate ice cream and sliced fresh bananas dripping with silky chocolate syrup. The crêpe is huge, so sharing is highly recommended. One notable feature is that some parts of the crêpe are crispy, almost like a biscuit, which some people really like. I personally prefer the usual soft texture.
Not surprisingly, I ordered the New York Cheesecake, as I am obsessed with this dessert. I was given a choice of purée, and I opted for blueberry. Although they garnished my cake with real blueberries, the "purée" didn't taste like blueberries at all! I also didn't like the flavour of the cake itself, as it didn't taste very cheesecake-like.

  1. I just came here on Friday night and ordered a smoked salmon salad of all things.. lol. My friends ordered The perfect couple too, and the wild crepe. I'm not a fan of Cafe Mirage but at least it's another dessert place option uptown! :)
