I've been going here for years, back when they were much smaller and still sort of a "secret". I looked through the reviews, and I do get the ones who think that some of the desserts are to sweet, but we're talking about dessert here.
The only desserts that I've thought were too sweet are the vegan cheesecakes. Everything else is right on target, and in fact, the cakes and icing are not very sweet. Which is perfect.
They have a great creme brulee, excellent cakes of all sorts, really nice pies, and great cookies. Ginger is my fav cookie - so good!
The owners have also taken a non-gmo pledge and source non-gmo ingredients for their food. This is excellent, since corn and beet sugar are primarily modified, and are used extensively in desserts.
The only other place that I think compares to Sweet Life for desserts is Raw Luv, and Raw Luv does catering only! Check out Sweet Life, you really will have a delightful time. And if you have to share a dessert or take some home for later, consider that a bonus, not a downside!
Cons: limited parking
