What comes to your mind when you think of Sullivan’s? It may be the historic hardware store, the food, top quality service, or the cool bar and incredible drinks, but to MOST people around town (and even those who live far away), Sullivan’s is synonymous with divine DESSERTS, namely our cheesecake. You definitely can’t visit without snagging a slice!
Our legendary desserts were created by Sabra Nickas, the late co-owner of Sullivan’s and acting pastry chef for many years. Her recipes are unbeatable which is why we still use and follow them today! Natalie Smith, our current pastry chef, worked alongside Sabra for several years when the restaurant first opened. She left Sullivan’s after a while to pursue other pastry opportunities and honed in on her skills as a wedding cake creator and decorator. Natalie came back to work with us in April 2019, and MAN are we so thankful for her. She bakes every single cake, pie, and cheesecake you see and enjoy at Sullivan’s, and ensures that our desserts continue to uphold Sullivan’s standards in honor of Sabra. We wouldn’t be who we are as a restaurant without her work and expertise.
Some exciting things are brewing in the Sullivan’s dessert department these days! Recently, it was out with the old and in with a new dessert case - because after all, you eat with your eyes first, so having a beautiful display case is the first step in enjoying our dessert! We are also in the process of developing a pastry internship with Johnson & Wales University, where a new student each semester will work under Natalie’s wing and receive hands-on pastry experience. And lastly, brides who book our catering services for their wedding will have the opportunity to order a Sullivan’s wedding cake for their special day, made with love and care by Natalie. How exciting?!
We think our desserts are pretty incredible, but don’t take our word for it! If you’ve never had a slice of Sullivan’s heaven, start with our signature key lime or peanut butter pie, or a slice of caramel cashew, cookie dough, strawberry amaretto, or chocolate swirl cheesecake (or really ANY of them 😉). We PROMISE, you won’t be disappointed.
