“As one of the staff here, I love working here. It has such a nice family feel to it—it’s a comfortable and homey yet decadent experience,” says assistant manager Emily Rhyno about what makes Sweet Hereafter a winning choice for Best Dessert. “We see people on date nights, people coming in with friends to hang out, students on study breaks to treat themselves, special occasions, people who want to come in and relax with coffee, a book and a piece of cheesecake.” The any-excuse/all-occasions feel, combined with a rotating cast of flavours, makes for a fun experience anytime, she adds. Her favourite slice of all, though? Salted caramel.
