In a city known for its food, Kaminsky's distinguishes itself as THE place to have dessert. Skip the dessert at the fancy restaurant, and stroll downtown for the best milkshakes, cakes, and pies in town.

There is nothing on the menu that isn't absolutely delicious. My absolute favorite, however, is their mixed berry cobbler dessert.
