About Diane Yang

Modest, modern, mouthwatering: On those tenets, Executive Pastry Chef Diane Yang has built her reputation as one of Minneapolis’s dessert masters. Yang’s dessert menus hit a range of tones, textures, and flavors to be that enduring final impression, with a delicate balance of sweet with sour, savory, bitter, and salty. “I think simple is good,” she says. “Once in a while, I’ll go all out and do something gorgeous, but I mostly like to stick with the well-executed simple items that comfort people and entice them to come back for more.”

"The savory food was amazing, but with a changing menu... specific dishes come and go.... anything you pick will probably be great. Just don’t skip dessert here. And when in doubt, order an extra. You won’t be disappointed. 3 of us finished 6 desserts"

"You used to have to go to Spoon & Stable ever time you craved Diane Yang’s legendary crepe cake, but now you can grab a slice at Bellecour’s bakery whenever you fancy. Layered to perfection."
