If you're craving something sweet, head over to Patisserie Ricotta.

Our top recommendation here is the delicious cake
made using home-made ricotta cheese.

Ricotta cheese is made with fresh milk and without the use of fermentation,
creating a mellow fragrance and sweetness accompanied by a smooth, unaffected texture.
Incredibly popular,
even those who normally don't like cheesecake have been known to sing its praises.

Along with seven types of cheese, including rare cheese and camembert mousse,
you can enjoy takeout of more than 30 different varieties of cake.
