I love Samantha's restaurant near Takoma Park and had been eagerly awaiting the opening of Samantha's in Wheaton. I was running late for a party and didn't have time to make the dessert I had planned on. Samantha's had just opened, so I thought I'd buy a few desserts to take to the party. It took a little while to get someone to help me, the owner/manager(?) was far too busy showing her friends everything to bother with me. The guy who finally helped me was nice enough, but the desserts were awful. I was embarassed they were so bad, luckily some of the other guests had brought dessert as well. The flan was so thick it was almost chewy. The chocolate mousse tart would've been great the day before, but tasted like refrigerator. The cupcakes were a little tough (fantastic frosting, though). The strawberry napolean was strange. It was very crisp and fresh, but filled with Italian merengue instead of whipped or pastry cream. I also got a couple of other things that were just old or not good.\r
I haven't had the food, but I can't say I'd go back to try it.
Cons: inattentive service, day old desserts
