For jollity in the form of jiggling, ethereal, subtly sweet desserts, add Flüf Soufflé Cheesecakes to your list of must-stop spots this season. Celebrating its grand opening on Nov. 19, Flüf brings Japanese-style sweets to Oakville to delight visitors and locals alike.
Unique within Oakville’s downtown core, Flüf (pronounced “floof”) deals in gossamer, crustless cheesecakes that bear little resemblance to their commonplace kin. Whipped high with eggs, air, and patience, then baked in a bain-marie to preserve their delicate structure, the desserts coming out of Flüf’s kitchen are closer to soufflés than lactose-loaded leaden bricks. Unassuming and delicately sweetened, Flüf’s cheesecakes are for anyone possessing a sweet tooth, who longs for a light dessert that satisfies without being cloying or unpleasantly heavy.
At Flüf, cheesecakes come in vanilla, chocolate, and assorted flavours that change with the seasons: summer’s mango has morphed into autumn’s pumpkin spice rendition, with caramel toffee on tap for winter. Also on the menu, are hot and cold beverages, ranging from Balzac’s coffee and matcha lattes to assorted fruit-spiked lemonades.
Owned by friends and hospitality entrepreneurs Harry Chau and Hartej Tapia, Flüf Soufflé Cheesecakes is a rosy addition to Oakville’s downtown core. In soft-opening mode since September, the team will be celebrating the store’s grand opening on Nov. 19, between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. Guests will receive samples, 50 per cent off select items, and the chance to win a year’s worth of dessert, while the first 100 customers will also receive free cheesecake. In addition, pooches will receive a complimentary puppaccino for tagging along with their humans. They’ll also be thrilled to hear that 50 per cent of proceeds from the day will be donated to the Oakville and Milton Humane Society.
Beautiful year-round, Oakville is particularly dazzling during the holidays. A popular spot for weekend wanderers, you’ll want to visit soon to discover its heritage buildings festooned with swag and shimmering lights, live music in the streets and Santa gleefully waving to guests from his cozy cottage. Pop into Flüf the next time you’re in Oakville, and make the season merrier with every bite.
Flüf Soufflé Cheesecakes is located at 131 Lakeshore Road East, Oakville.
