What people are saying about Better Than Sex

I came here with my girlfriend and we had a delicious drinks!! One of the best place I’ve been in key west!!!


You have to check this place out, cozy booths, romantic lighting and honest to god good desserts!…


Great unique place for a romantic dessert, my husband and I loved the atmosphere and the wonderful desserts.


Try the key lime pie and red wine with dark chocolat. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. It’s called FOOD PORN.


…Wine in a chocolate dipped glass has changed my life forever. Dessert so good you can’t even talk you just savor. Go, just go.


Len & Dani

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

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.

Katie “Sweeny 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.


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!


The perfectly named Charity is so sweet, she’s a dessert all by her self— so order quickly!


Don’t ask Daniel to take your photo, You’ll end up taking his picture— with your date in his lap


Usually quiet and unassuming, Meg’s smolder is evidence that still waters run deep


A true animal lover, Sophie is always adopting strays. But don’t get any ideas, gentlemen…


As a former ringmaster, Syd’s talents are invaluable. We say that because a circus is coming soon


Self-professed resident legal counsel, Mike has seen every episode of Judge Judy and once met her in our local CVS


Our Emma is so sweet, we’d make her into a special dessert, but you might go into sugar shock


Marta is the perfect example of still waters running deep— and with Key West on a shallow reef, that’s saying something

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!

A Husband and Wife Team, Len & Dani Johnson are self taught entrepreneurs.

Baker/Owner, Dani Johnson was surrounded by an Italian family growing up, centered around each other, love & lots of food. Baking became her and her moms favorite thing to do.
