Ruelo Patisserie is a small dessert and cafe spot in Times Square on Leslie and Highway 7. They serve a wide variety of cakes, teas, drinks, and the like. It's rather small with only a few tables, but the place is real clean and has a nice decor and interior.
We just came from dinner but the girlfriend loves her post-dinner cakes, so we stopped in to grab a slice. I ordered the Pina Colada, while Anna got a slice of Hazelnut cake. The Pina colada was a slice of cake that was coated in coconut flakes and stuffed with tiny pineapple chunks and a wafer. It was very good, but the inside was a tad too sweet.
The hazelnut cake was the best as it was moist and the crust at the bottom was perfect. The flavor was very subtle despite how heavy it looked. The portion size was much bigger than I was expecting as its surprisingly filling. Very rich dessert despite the excellent subtlety.
The place itself is located within that inner area so be sure to make your way in for the parking and such. The lady behind the counter was nice and the service quick. You can also preorder larger cakes for pickup. Definitely a place worth checking out.
