Respond to Review of Strong Hearts Cafe
Review: This is a great place to go if you want store bought food perfectly assembled charged at ridiculous prices. They don't even make their own pizza dough! It's shells! I paid an arm and a leg for a damn shell! Anyway, yeah the milkshakes are the bomb and everyone can use the same foundations to make their own (temptation ice cream and soy milk). I don't think they created anything from scratch. I mean, hello, the deserts they make are straight from the cookbooks on display! I guess I'm just disappointed b/c it's such a darn cop-out. Even, in the end of it all, I still wasn't wowed. I just don't know why everyone is raving about the place, you can by the same crap at the grocery store. They deserve one cow.

Yes, we do use pre-made pizza shells that are made and delivered by Harrison Bakery, a locally owned independent bakery here in Syracuse. When you're making 60 pizzas a night (yes, we actually do sell that many on our Friday night Pizza Nights), you don't exactly have time to roll out and hand toss each individual pizza shell... especially when you have an oven the size of one you'd have in your home kitchen and the line to order is out the door. A question for you... how did the pizza taste? You forget to mention that in your review.
Some of the cupcakes we serve come from recipes in the book "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World" by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Why? Because it's the bible on vegan cupcakes and there simply is nothing that beats the quality of the items in that book. We are not a bakery and never claimed to have "original" recipes for our desserts. But your claim that they all come from books on display is not only untrue, but ridiculous. Again, how did the desserts taste? Something else you forgot to mention in your "review".
