It's no secret Café Latte has some of the best desserts in town. But when their famous turtle cake made the cover of Midwest Living magazine last year, it became pretty clear: Café Latte's desserts may be some of the best in the country.
Bike to dinner: St. Paul edition
Sandwiched between three layers of not-so-ordinary chocolate cake is some of the best hot fudge and caramel sauce known to man. Each component is remarkable on its own, but the combination of a perfect cake to caramel to hot fudge ratio and the crunch of giant pecans, is what takes this dessert from perfect to magazine-cover worthy.
Whether you stop in for a cup of soup and can't resist grabbing a slice on your way out (the desserts are conveniently displayed right at the entrance; resistance is futile) or you plan ahead and order a couple of cakes for a work party, the faithful turtle cake never fails.
