Sin

Dessert gets even more sinful thanks to inspired recipes and cocktail pairings

Posted

On the West Side, Sin turns indulgence into an Instagram-worthy art. Inspired by the guilty pleasures in life, the cafe/bar specializes in the two best components of any well-rounded diet – sweets and adult refreshments. By day you’ll find fresh breakfast pastries and sweet treats with coffee and espresso offerings, and by night, intricately plated desserts with creative cocktails, wine and beer inspired by each of the seven deadly sins. Wind down the slow, slothful days of summer with a cocktail known as “The Basic,” a refreshing blend of cucumber vodka and elderflower liquor with a touch of lemon and a little ginger beer for fizz. Or get a bit greedy on a cooler fall day with the warm chocolate chip bread pudding served with fresh mint gelato and house-made mint cookies. With vegan and gluten-free offerings that are sure to satisfy all cravings, this place has you covered, with the chic and mellow ambience that is perfect for easing into the morning or ending the day with a drink and dessert to share. (Although, once you taste them, you may want to get your own.)
