Sweet Life Delivers!

Tuesday, April 25, 2006

Sweet Life deliveredEugene pastry lovers rejoice- guess who has been added to the restaurant delivery service Pony Express? Sweet Life!

I haven’t ordered for them to be delivered yet… it kind of feels too dirty to get pastries like that. Perhaps I will feel brave enough soon! Though with Pony Express’s flat fee of $3.95, you’d have to order enough goodies to make it worth the call!

Looking over the menu is interesting to see how they deal with the fact that their offerings change daily. To reflect that, several sweet things are offered in the flavor of the day, such as chocolate cake, tartlets, cheesecake, Pot de Creme, Biscotti, Creme Brulee, Chocolate Orbs, and fruit pie. While the menu looks great I see favorites that are missing- my beloved parfait cups and the dense slice of chocolate pave. Perhaps a tip to the driver can procure special off the menu treats with a scoop of gelato too?

It is now all too tempting to order $20 worth of chocolate while at work now. It’s bad enough that they deliver Mekelas. I’ll be broke forever.

  • I hear you! Sweets and I are the silly ones who order deliveries for restaurants less than a mile away! FWI- if you order enough from them, they’ll take checks.
