Poetry would be entirely composed of haikus and sonnets dedicated to cheesecakes if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write. Say what meter and rhythm cannot with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a dozen mini cheesecakes (a $20 value) at Chocolate Zen on Osborne Street.
Chocolate Zen concocts its custom confections from scratch using contemporary European baking techniques and natural ingredients unsullied by additives. The bakery's trio of seasoned pastry chefs brings years of experience and training to each treat, paying close attention to detail in matters of taste, appearance, and confectionary psychology. Mini cheesecakes, served in mini cupcake liners, provide two or three palate-pleasing bites apiece in 10 different flavours. Among other options, citrusy selections such as lemon raspberry and mandarin orange vie with chocolate-accented variations in Oreo and Skor for the attentions of the cheesecake connoisseur. Chocolate Zen adds no preservatives, artificial fillings, or inedible figurines. The shop dishes out its sweet eatables from a sunny storefront with an appropriately chocolate-and-cream interior colour scheme.
