Just hearing someone mention Kaminsky’s makes my mouth water! Their extensive menu and cake case provides a variety of options to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth.

Their menu includes so many fun flavors of specialty coffees and teas, milkshakes, floats, and sundaes. At the front of the store is a dessert case that is prepared fresh daily and rotates multiples times a day. Inside this case there is an assortment of cakes, cheesecakes, pies, cobblers and some seasonal specials.

A personal favorite, and very popular dessert, is the Toll House Pie. This pie tastes just like a half baked, warm, gooey cookie, topped with melted chocolate chips, walnuts and whipped cream. Another must try item would be their Mountain of Chocolate cake. The richness of this three-layer cake pairs perfectly with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Kaminsky’s fun dessert cocktails make it even better and stand out from all of the other dessert shops around! From adult milkshakes to their signature dessert martinis, Kaminsky’s makes dessert just as fun and exciting for adults as it is for kids.

As you pass Kaminsky’s in the Vista, you will always see it packed. Its upscale and pleasant atmosphere is the perfect place to kickback with a group of friends and reward yourself with a slice of cake and a specialty cocktail.

I promise you when you head to Kaminsky’s, you will leave already planning your next visit!
