Better Than Sex Dessert Restaurant: Come for the Food, Stay for the Innuendo

This weekend, my friend Uri and I went on a trip to Key West. While I’m not much of a beach person (my summer uniform is a giant hat and SPF 75), Key West is a really cool town with a lot of interesting history. And it also has the most hilarious dessert cafe ever, Better Than Sex. Lest you think the name is too clever for its own good, BTS also pornifies its menu descriptions. For example:

Other stuff on the menu has names like Missionary Crisp and Team Cream. Wine is served either the normal way or in a glass coated with chocolate – which you can order by asking for a rim job.

While the restaurant’s schtick could wear thin, the appealing staff and flat-out delicious food balances out the gimmickry. The place is so dark that servers hand you mini flashlights so you can read the menu, but otherwise the staff is professional. In a place like Key West with a name containing the word Sex, this restaurant could have gone too far in the camp direction. Although they have to read menu descriptions aloud while keeping straight faces, the hosts and servers will never hit on you or make you feel uncomfortable. That said, make sure you tip well – considering the aphrodisiac nature of the food, a lot of people barely managed to pay their checks before sprinting back to their hotels.
