Dinner is not quite complete without something sweet and decadent. Yes we are talking about that mini-celebration of indulgence – DESSERT!
The Bay House Restaurant celebrates the annual Mango Festival by introducing a new dessert menu. Chef Hodge and his team have put together an artisanal menu incorporating local fruits such as mangoes, bananas and limes with your favourites like cheese cake, ice-cream and chocolate.
New to the menu is the New York Style Cheese Cake which sits in an almost sinful Mango Coulis. The peach schnapps filled tartlet explodes in your mouth when you bite into them and ice cream becomes deliciously perfect with the use of fresh bananas and limes in the Caribbean Banana Flambé.
Our homemade style Apple Pie à la Mode an individually made apple pie served warm with your favourite ice cream and brown sugar vanilla sauce is a favourite with our diners and past guests can still be had anytime.
Join us tonight as we unveil the new menu and be the first to sample our new indulgences. Call us (268)-462-1223 to make your reservations we are open from 7am – 11pm daily.
