Inside Our Menu: English Toffee

Last year during the holiday season, Margie Smith (a server at our Westlake Village location) brought all of our staff homemade English Toffee. After tasting it, we immediately knew it had to be added to our variety of desserts.

Oscar Cobian, our Food & Beverage Director who's been with us for nearly 20 years, went on a quest to develop the best possible recipe. Today, it's one of our most popular desserts. We make it on the premises, like most of our other desserts.

English Toffee is a great gift for family and friends living around the country; like almost all of our menu items, we can ship it anywhere in the continental United States.

We didn't invent English Toffee. We just made it better.
