With most of my cousins in town last week following my sister's wedding in Vancouver, we decided to do a quick get together, sans kids.
Someone suggested Gravity Espresso and Wine Bar and after hearing all the great things on twitter and food blogs, I was happy to go check it out.
Located in Inglewood, this is a cute little place. We went on a Thursday and found it quiet, perfect for the eleven of us to be a little rowdy. The art on the wall was great, and inspired conversation.
Not really in the mood for coffee, I tried out the hot chocolate, made with chocolate from Papa Chocolat. It was a good hot chocolate, not too sweet and decorated beautifully.
The best part of the night was the flourless chocolate cake. Decadent, rich and so satisfying, I would go back just for that!
Other desserts that they had were the carrot cake and cheesecake in jars. I was really hoping to try the coconut cake but they didn't have any that day.
I loved that the owner, Andy, came over to make sure we were doing okay. That personal touch is always appreciated. His attention to detail in creating ambiance for the restaurant was noted when the quiet place that we had walked into filled with music after he arrived.
That chocolate cake? I think it will be calling me back!
