Eight treats from a restaurant, three bakeries, a movie theater, and a chocolatier

Donut Bread Pudding

A twist on your favorite breakfast treat comes in the form of this decadent dessert. Made in-house and from scratch, it’s the perfect balance of salty and sweet. The dough is soft and tender with lemon crème pâtissière and salted butterscotch — and to top it all off — a dollop of cinnamon whip cream. Donut Bread Pudding is just one of CinéBistro’s tasty dessert options.

Guava Cheesecake

Guava Cheesecake

Mojitos Cuban American Bistro at the Forum has cleverly taken the classic Cuban treat of crackers with cream cheese and guava paste and transformed it into a cheesecake! It’s their original, and also their signature, dessert — found nowhere else. The cream cheese is guava infused and the icing is made in-house as well. Cheesecake is an American favorite, while the guava adds a brilliant Cuban flair.

Tre Leches from Mojitos

Tres Leches

A traditional Latin specialty, tres leches consist of three milks: evaporated, condensed and heavy cream. This moistened sponge cake is made fresh and in-house at Mojitos daily. The cake is garnished with a lush red cherry to top it all off. It’s a sweet treat that will melt in your mouth. Delish!

Quesitos from Pablo’s Bakery & Cafe


A traditional dessert from Puerto Rico, quesito is a puff pastry consisting of cream cheese and covered in sugar. The perfect shade of golden brown you see on the outside is a result of the caramelization of the sugar — absolutely mouthwatering! This treat pairs perfectly with a cup of hot coffee.

Strawberry Tart

Strawberry Tart

Pablo’s Bakery takes a unique approach to the classic strawberry tart dessert. It’s prepared in-house, like many of their other treats. The dough is made like a cookie, then the tart and the frangipane are baked to perfection. It’s topped with cream and, of course, fresh strawberries with little sprinkles of chocolate.
