DeLise, the acclaimed San Francisco dessert cafe, has announced that their Father's Day weekend (June 15, 16 and 17) specials will be That's a Boy (cigar and Johnnie Walker Black Label Scotch) ice cream available by the scoop and pint, plus caramel popcorn enhanced with bacon and roasted cocoa nibs.
DeLise specialize in gourmet bite-size pastries, cupcakes, plus frozen delights, all of which are handcrafted daily. The great taste and creativity of their menu items is complemented by small-batch production using all-natural, premium quality, often locally sourced, sustainable and organic ingredients, with dairy from Straus Organic Creamery and Clover Dairy.
The cafe's offerings include mini-cupcakes, muffins, coffee cakes, scones, cookies, bars, macarons, frozen desserts (ice cream, sorbet, yougurt), baguette sandwiches, bagels and specialty coffee and tea beverages. There are always vegan (sorbet), fat-free (organic frozen yogurt) and gluten-free items (macarons). Among the savory baked goods sometimes available is a signature Peking Duck Scone which has received praise from customers and critics alike.
Opened in 2009, DeLise is owned and operated by Dennis and Eloise Leung, two engineers-turned-pastry chefs (via the California Culinary Academy) whose passion for the culinary arts propelled them on a quest to create, among other things, the perfect scoop of artisan creamy goodness highlighting distinctive flavors. The path to DeLise, on Dennis' part, included the St. Regis Hotel, Bong Su, Aqua and Roy's, while Eloise has spent time at Citizen Cake, Bong Su, Jardinière, Campton Place Hotel and Gary Danko. Reflecting their cultural heritage, Dennis and Eloise have become known for incorporating Asian inspired flavors into their pastries and frozen desserts.
