Wonderful spot with stellar cakes! We frequent Simply Desserts often after dinner out and about in Fremont. The servings are generous so we tend to end up taking at least half home...but what's more fun than cake for breakfast the next morning?!?

simply desserts in freemont makes great desserts and is a good choice for when you're entertaining and don't want to think about dessert but want to impress and delight your guests. the store is small and cramped for just getting a slice of something to eat there, but getting something to go and then finding a place to people watch is always a fun choice.

Located in Freemont, Simply Desserts definitely has the best cakes. I've tried all their cakes and all are equally delicious! The slices are huge and the cakes are very rich so it's probably a good idea to share! :)

My absolute favorite cake in the world is the white chocolate strawberry cake from Simply Desserts. I'm not even a fan of white chocolate, but this cake is just the best. It's always moist and flavorful without being too sweet. I ordered this cake as our wedding cake - a small round one - perfect for our small wedding.

Pros: great cakes

Cons: atmosphere is not the greatest to hang out in

.

Yes, it's tiny and has no atmosphere. If you have trouble shelling out $35 for a cake made with great quality ingredients and all butter, then maybe you should just go to the grocery store and get a cake laden with HFCS and partially hydrogenated soybean oil. Me, I'll take my delicious cake, in a tiny shop, on paper plates, and eat it with plastic forks, because it's just that good. The chocolate white chocolate is easily the best cake I've ever had.

The cakes are fabulous. The one issue I have with Simply Desserts is the customer service. They do not value their customers and service is shabby. I have been there many times and many times I am given abrupt and poor attitude by the people who work there. Yes, I was willing to take the abuse for their cakes.

I also agree with the other reviewers that there is no ambiance either. Considering the cost of a small slice of cake, it should be placed on a real plate with a real fork instead of a flimsy paper plate and plastic fork which bends when you try to take a bite. I assume this is so their customers order and take their cakes to go.

If the service and customer appreciation was better, this is a place I would drive across town for a slice of cake (to go) and happily pay for what they charge for a small piece of cake.

Pros: Cakes

Cons: Poor service and customer appreciation, ambiance, parking

These cakes are to die for because not only are they not toooo sweet but their frosting is actaully made out of actual chocolate not powdered sugar and water. I love these cakes because they are moist but dense so you get all the flavors packed into this hearty piece of cake which is not uncontrollably sweet because the frosting of pure white or semi-sweet chocolate compliments the sweetness you'd be looking for in both the cake and frosting. All in all this cake is a must have at any occassion, my favorite is the white chocolate strawberry or the chocolate cake with white chocolate frosting.

Also they will totally accomadate you if you want a cake early in the morning, I needed a cake on Sunday morning before I headed to work and they were able to get it to me by noon. Totally worth it and they didn't make it seem like it was too much trouble at all!

Pros: THE CAKE!

Cons: Won't always have the cake you want available for single slice sale, street parking

.

I have never sat inside Simply Desserts and eaten cake, but I order their White Chocolate Strawberry cake for all my birthday parties!! The cake is thick and moist... almost like a cornbread and the white chocolate frosting and filling with real strawberry is just so crazily delicious. I have to base this whole review on this yummy and filling cake. Delicious! Expensive too, but I obviously have found it worth the price for special occasions.

Cons: Some might find it too pricey

We had to park a few streets away because there's no parking near the restaurant. When we got there, I noticed that while it's called "Simply Desserts," it really only seems to specialize in one thing - chocolate cake. They did have apple pie, cookies/brownies, and a slice or two of non-chocolate cakes, but I didn't feel like there was much choice for people who aren't chocolate obsessed. I had the chocolate Irish cream cake, which was good but got to be boring before I was done. My capuccino was pretty good. There wasn't much seating, and they didn't have anywhere to throw away your trash. My friend and I brought ours up to the server because we didn't want to take up the only remaining table with our garbage. It was nice for a late night snack, but if you don't want chocolate cake, I'd suggest going somewhere else.

Pros: Lots of cake

Cons: Not enough seating, Bad parking, Not much variety

Simply DIVINE! The designs are heavily European-influenced, the taste lifts you up. The selection changes often so there's always an element of surprise, but the classic chocolate cake is a must-try! You can taste the baker's passion in the cakes.

PROS: Frequently changing selection, a feast for your stomach and eyes
CONS: Cramped seating, go on weeknights to avoid the crowd

Simply Desserts has the best cake in Seattle. It's rich and creamy and melts in your mouth. They keep odd hours and only take cash or checks but it's worth the hassle. I have driven to Seattle from Des Moines, just for the cake...it's that good!

This place needs some ambiance! The layout is awkward, you can't see the cakes in the case without hunching down awkwardly (please put the cakes at the front of the display), the cakes are served on cheap childhood picnic paper plates, and the cakes that were cut and on display were covered loosely with saran making them look old and goopy. Lighting is horrid and table tops have no style, which is why nobody probably eats there. However, the cakes we tried were fairly good, albeit a little too chocolaty...I like my chocolate with a little darkness balanced with lightness so it doesn't feel like a brick falling down my stomach. The cakes seemed to be more about substance than style, which is good fix for a sweet tooth rather than an elegant refined dessert.

The cake is always fresh & moist. My favorite flavors are the orange-pumpkin with cream cheese frosting and the chocolate-caramel. If the rotating menu of cakes includes either of those when I stop by, you'll have to fight me for the last slice!

My Mexican Chocolate Cake was quite tasty, but I don't know what the heck the editorial review was saying about getting large slices for a good price. I paid too much for a pretty small serving. I also found it odd that my cake was served on a paper plate with a plastic fork and yet there was not a single garbage can in the restaurant for me to throw anything away. How about some real dishes if I'm going to pay such a fancy price?

I have loved Simply Desserts for almost 20 years. They simply make the finest cakes I have ever tasted and I have been ALL OVER the world. Their Chocolate Cognac Torte, Chocolate White Chocolate Cake and their Orange Pumpkin Cake are without peer. So moist, so delicate....Wait.....I think I might cry......

As an avid Seattle sweet tooth, I can tell you this is one of the best places for cake. My birthday cake always comes from here - Chocolate Fudge. The Chocolate Carmel is also worth it. Always moist and rich, these cakes are what Simply Desserts does best.

The apple pie there is the best anywhere. The crusts are particularly delicate and buttery without being too rich. They are seasonal and if you want a whole pie, you have to call ahead and order it.

Baily's Cheesecake, Chocolate Cake, and Carrot Cake were the only choices offered. We left and didn't try any of them. The lattes we saw looked thin and were small. It is hard to find, no parking when you get there, and then with the selection we saw ... not worth the trouble.

I have been ordering desserts from this place for over 10 years. In that time, the quality has never wavered. The desserts are unbelievable! Truly! Every time I take one of their treats to a party, everyone is amazed at the quality, taste, presentation -- the whole package! All of my friends and acquaintances order from them. Recently, in the span of 3 days I had 4 cakes from there...each one was delectable! FANTASTIC STUFF!!!

Though the desert was fine, the service was slip-shod at best. Once we were waited on, we were nearly pushed out the door.
