Dessert or Drinks in Windsor

I'm taking my first trip out of the country to see a show at Ceasars Windsor this weekend. We have dinner reservations in Detroit before the show, but is there anything in Windsor near the casino that we shouldn't miss? Maybe a bakery or something for dessert..or maybe just a bar for drinks? Maybe a late night meal after the show?

  1. I haven't been to the Windsor-Detroit area in a few years. I used to go duck hunting on Walpole Island, and a friend introduced me to a fantastic place in Detroit for dessert. I believe it was called Poppin' Fresh, and they made the most exquisite French silk pie! I have never tasted anything so luscious & heavenly in all my life.

    If I got the name wrong, I'm sure you could ask one of the locals in the Detroit area to steer you in the right direction. You can get pie by the slice, or buy a whole one to eat there or to go ..... one piece is never enough. You won't regret it!!

      You might want to try The Gourmet Emporium at 1799 Wyandotte Street East in Walkerville. They do an eclectic mix of tapas style plates. They also have a funky martini menu and are open on weekends until 2 am. I haven't yet been, but a quick peek at the tapas menu revealed a pretty wide variety of potentially interesting bites. 519 915 1268

        The first thing that popped into my head when I read that is that you probably meant Baker's Square which went by the name Poppin Fresh Pies until the early 1980's. Could that be it or is it a different store?
