The Dessert Lady

The Dessert Lady has been around town in different locations for many years now(downtown and also on Kirkman). Not long ago she relocated her establishment to the Dr. Philips area. Recently she invited a group of local restaurant and food bloggers to an event at her new place so we could try her many delicious desserts.

The Dessert Lady herself, Patti, was there and she was quite charming and it was great to spend time chatting with her about her desserts and her business.  Below are the pictures.

The Dessert Lady's one and only location is now at:
7600 Dr.Philips Blvd #78 
Orlando, FL 32819
(407) 999-5696
