I went to Café Zaiya for my birthday this year after having dinner in the city. I was on a search to find Japanese soufflé cheesecake. I was really excited when I found this café and fulfilled my foodie dreams! These cheesecake was so lightly sweet and very soft. The only thing I regret about it was eating it so fast. I also had an assorted pack of macaroons that were so soft and sweet. They had flavors such as matcha, pistachio, raspberry, and chocolate. I believe these items came up to a little more or less than $12, which was well worth it for the taste and quality of the desserts.
The café is very welcoming and is almost set up like a cafeteria, in a way. It is certainly a casual setting but the desserts are anything but!
