The Night Owl, Fullerton, CA

 

 

I realized that it’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a desserts/coffee house. As a coffee snob, I’m constantly on the lookout for the best coffee place around, or at least a good one that’s also closest to wherever I happen to be. It’s no easy task but it’s what makes driving around fun. 🙂 And I’ve stumpled upon The Night Owl in Fullerton.

Located in downtown Fullerton, The Night Owl is a cool name for a coffee place. It fits those who can’t sleep due to caffein high. Like myself. This coffee shop is small, dark and cozy. There is a back area set up for a live music band as well as lounging for those who want to enjoy coffee while doodling on their laptop.

I just wanted coffee, and thought the Belgian cafe mocha sounded interesting, and since they also have a number of cakes and pastries, I thought, why not? The black forest chocolate cake was the only thing that stood out to me because it’s chocolate cake (how can you say no to chocolate cake?), topped with vanilla frosting (yum!), with raspberry jelly all nestled into the layers. And it was surprisingly delish. Took me two days to finish it, though. I didn’t want to OD on sweets. 😀

The only thing I thought was ridiculous was how expensive the macaroons are. They are $1.95 each, BUT they are TINY. To me, that’s expensive. I’ve had bigger macaroons for $1.65. I do realize that macaroons are not cheap and they usually go for anywhere from $1.50 to $2.25 EACH and they’re almost never sold in bulk. And if they are, they aren’t delicious. As badly as I wanted to some macaroons, I wasn’t going to pay almost two bucks for a tiny little one.

Once they made my Belgian iced mocha and boxed up my black forest cake, I was happily on my way driving home. Macaroons will have to wait another time. 🙂
