[Tip: For dessert, they don’t take reservations, so you can just drop in. If you go during peak hours, you will have to wait for a while. When I went, I went near midnight on a Friday, and only had to wait 10 minutes to get a seat for 3 people. So to avoid a long wait, I would recommend going at the non-peak times for dessert.]

Recommended for: Dessert lovers & people who like the movie Serendipity (as this is the place where they filmed one of the scenes from the movie)
Scene from the movie Serendipity:
Jonathan: This is the ultimate blend to drink. How’d you find this place?
Sara: I first came in because of the name: Serendipity. It’s one of my favorite words.
Jonathan: It is? Why?
Sara: It’s such a nice sounding word for what it means: a fortunate accident.
