Calhoun’s Bakery Cafe

Continuing with the blueberry theme, on the same night we had dinner at Swiss Chalet, I urbanspooned to see what dessert places were close by.  Calhoun’s Bakery Cafe was a few blocks down so I decided on there.

It was a bit of a wet and drippy evening that day.  However it was a short walk.  We quickly came up to this big barnhouse looking building.

As this place was opened 24hrs, obviously there were quite a bit of students here with their laptops (doubt they’re actually doing homework/studying though….Facebook-stalk much?).  But it’s clear why it’s so popular with that crowd…open seating, fast, satisfying food, relatively ok prices.

I don’t quite remember but there’s a special order you do things here….I believe the logical choice would be to pay first then pick up your order.  There’s a sign that says if they’re not busy they’ll take the food to your table.

They have an assortment of wraps, pizza, salads, and custom-made gourmet sandwiches, much like another similar eatery called Max’s Bakery & Delicatessen.  I’ve heard good things about Calhoun’s prawn sandwich.  However it’s about $7-9 so it’ll probably be a while before I indulge in such an expensive sandwich.

Obviously in the end I was only interested in dessert, as we had dinner already.

The cheesecake squares were $2.50, the slices were about $4.

Calhoun's Bakery Cafe: Blueberry Cheesecake Square

So I got myself a Blueberry Cheesecake Square to share with Boyfriend.  It was really really good.  They’ve managed to get lots of blueberry flavor into the cheesecake part, without overpowering the cream cheese flavor.  It was scrumptious to say the least, and the perfect size for us to share.

The bottom was sort of an oat square bar type thing.  Quite hard and chewy, but it fit very well.  Definitely more interesting than your regular graham cracker crust.

This I would come back for again.

  1. See, it always helps to have other opinions on places. I have tried Calhoun’s before in the past and didn’t know what I should order. I didn’t know about their prawn sandwich, which I might actually order if I’m in the mood for splurging.

    That dessert sounds like my type of food too. Tasty and just the right price range. I will try it the next time I’m in the area.

    Thanks for the tip.
