Additional Comments:

  • Tough to find on Centre, in a strip mall, pay attention to the blue Yamato sign
  • There is parking around the block
  • I believe they used to serve sushi but looks like they’ve discontinued it
  • They have bubble tea too

I posed a question on twitter and facebook recently regarding where to pick up a good cheesecake.  I got a wide range of answers but most answers pointed to Yamato Dessert Cafe.  I heard about this Japanese bakery before and how good it was so definitely I needed to give it a shot.  I didn’t have much time so I wasn’t able to pre-order, I walked in and walked out with a cake with Happy Birthday written on it.  The lady/owner said they make all their cakes from scratch and all the flavour in them is real, for example we had the blueberry cheesecake she said it was made of real blueberries with no powders.  It was also topped with an assortment of other fruits which were a nice touch too.

The Blueberry Cheese Cake was fantastic, it was almost like a light mousse cake that wasn’t too heavy on the sugar taste and was perfect after a big meal.  Since then we’ve had another which was the Raspberry White Chocolate, another fantastic choice.  They have probably 20 plus cakes to choose from.  If you haven’t been you need to go try.
