It's a tiny little space with just enough room for a little service counter and a glass display holding the cakes. The description says that each Roulade "is a rich blend of Belgian chocolate mousse, rolled in a delicate sponge, enrobed with a silky chocolate ganash". They looked cute and the chocolate tempting. Furthermore there's currently an opening special which convinced me (details below).
So I took home a Raspberry and Black Forest to try. The chocolate ganache is silky indeed with a flavour. The Raspberry was a little too sweet and could do with a stronger berry taste. The Black Forest was better balanced with a tartness from the cherries that are mandatory to realise the cake's name. Next time I'm likely to steer away from the sweet flavours and try mango or lemon.
