“A Surprise! (Fri & Sat only)” said the dessert menu. That sealed the deal, we were going to Tapestry this weekend. Susan was less sure, “What if its something we don’t like?” she said. I said something about how that was the whole point of Dessert Friday but reassured her that I would order the surprise and she could order something else off the menu.
Tapestry is located in what looks like a house just off the main Los Gatos strip. It is a cozy looking restaurant with a good size patio. We arrived about 9:15 or so on a Saturday (Dessert Friday happened on Saturday this week because of some dental work I had on Friday afternoon) and there were only 3 or 4 tables occupied inside. It was a nice night so the patio had quite a few people. We opted to be inside as Maya and Susan get cold pretty easily, it was probably warm enough for us to sit outside though.
Service was friendly and I was able to secure a high chair for Maya who started munching on some of the bread sticks that were on the table. I ordered ” A Surprise” ($9.00) with out even asking what it was while Susan ordered “Tapestry’s Chocolate Cake w/ Caramel Mascarpone Cream” (also $9.00). We each ordered tea ($2.50 each) which was a selection of Stash tea with a couple Peets tea bags thrown in.
The chocolate cake was warm and soft, with a nice bitter chocolate taste, the caramel complemented it nicely. The cake was not too sweet and probably would have gone better with coffee than tea.
The surprise was pumpkin flan left in the dish with the caramel at the bottom rather than flipped over. Again the flan wasn’t overly sweet and the pumpkin wasn’t over-powering. It was one of the best dishes we have had so far on Dessert Friday. It made us want to come back every weekend to see what the surprise is.
