Len & Dani

Owners Len and Chef Dani find each other incredibly sexy—why do you think they went into business together?

Taylor “Taylor Made”

Gents: If you want to be ‘Taylor-Made’, you better have seamless confidence, clean-cut ambition, tuck in a sense of humor with a great smile and she will button you right up!

Mandy “Man Candy”

She may be known as ‘Man-Candy’ (just look at those eyes!), but show her that lovin’ feeling, try to match her witty sense of humor and she’ll playfully eat you right up.

Tia “Tia Pet”

The Tia Pet needs little tending: first, look deep into her eyes…feed juice, throw an upper cut, and watch her grow.

Ana “Anjo”

Ana exhibits the confident women. She’s an “on-two” player, and “spike hitter”, yet if you throw in a pair of red high heels, you can sit back and watch her walk the walk.

Katie “Sweeney Wood”

She used to be a “Cinnamon Girl”, but lately, it seems a little fresh talc is all it takes to get her starry-eyed.

Martina “Macho”

If you arrive revving a Black Challenger SRT8, Martina is always up for a quick spin around the block. Ironically, a challenge seems to be her vice.

Sanjar “Sammy”

Sammy’s in heaven here, with all the “BTS girls, it is sexy.” Well said.

Margarita “Marushka”

Marushka wears life lightly and find her fellow staffers to be an amazing sexy family. Mind if we join?

Shelby “Shabie Baby”

As Urban Dictionary States: “Absolutely Amazing, Incredibly Sexy, Sweet & Nice.” Feed her some ‘bubbles’ and out comes a touch of Spice.


Our own Island Girl, she’s the perfect balance of sassy and sweet. Independent, strong willed, Creative and Curious everyone wants to be completely surrounded by her.

Katie “K8T”

For a ‘Good Time’, come see Katie! Self-Confident, Self-Reliant, and Charismatic, she is sure to enhance your night out on the town, she may even come along…..


Playful and Optimistic. Taylor is a lover, not a fighter. He prefers the ‘female flowers’, with a ‘dried’ sense of humor —low maintenance versions only!


There are always questions. See if yours is answered here. If not, give us a call

  • Yes, it’s dark & cool inside— you might want to bring protection.
  • Our desserts are created here daily; rich, sensuous and sweet—just how we like our paramours
  • We love all children, but insist they be cherished elsewhere.
  • Our spaces encourage intimate tête-à-têtes, but our largest table can seat only 4 (possibly 5, if you really like each other). Parties of 6 to 14 may be accommodated in our Nook E Bar.
  • Music soothes the savage beast, which is why we choose our own soundtrack. Sorry, no requests.
  • With a name like ours, expect some saucy innuendo, but be advised—we’re 100% committed to a perfect guest reaction

Our Story

image2The dream began in 2003 …. And it all started with Len exclaiming to his new wife…. “I want dessert.” Four hours later, Dani brought out a fully decorated 2 layer Oreo Cream Cake for her new Hubby. Len Pronounced, “Wow, if you can do this what else can you do?” Dani took him up on the offer and began baking her little heart out at home. For the next three years she recorded all of her recipes, saved receipts, took photos of everything she was doing, just because something inside said she should.

Then in 2006 Len and Dani rolled out the “Dessert Menu” for the Restaurant to all of their friends at a Valentines day party at their home. None of them knew anything about the Dream. “You should do this for a living,” seemed to be the response….This is exactly what husband and wife team, Dani & Len had intended to do and their friends were the Ginnie pigs!

len_daniIn 2008, Better Than Sex opened their doors!
