If there's one thing I know about, it's food in Dallas. The only thing I know better than the places you can get the best meal, is the places you can get the best dessert. Hello, I haven't gained these extra L-B's eating salads and skipping dessert, duh! Don't get me wrong, Dallas has some great dessert spots, but there are a lot of overrated ones, and definitely a few that aren't technically Dallas based, but people have no idea. Desserting, as I like to call it, is such a fun adventure in Dallas. You can have a bomb dinner at one place and head off to another spot for a delicious dessert. That's just how Dallas rolls.
Joy Macarons I can honestly say, these macarons are the BEST macarons I have ever had, and I have had a LOT of macarons since these little guys became so popular a few year ago. From the incredible every day flavors like lemon and cookie dough to the delicious seasonal flavors, every single one of their macarons will blow your mind.
Howdy Homemade This little ice cream shop will literally blow your mind with their incredible flavors. The first time Thomas and I popped in, the owner, Tom Landis, was serving up scoops and had us try every single flavor they had. Tom Landis not only serves up some of the best ice cream, he has the biggest heart, and employs adults with special needs in Dallas to work in his shop! Truly a gem of a spot!
Starting September with a POP💥 I have yet to find a Popsicle I love more than the ones at @BerryNakedPops they're all natural and oh so delicious! If you're in Dallas and want a seriously yummy sweet treat, you need to get your booty to Berry Naked! Tag your bestie that you'd totally grab a Popsicle with!
Berrynaked There are other Popsicle shops in Dallas, so I can't give Berrynaked the title of first pop shop, but I can give it the title of the BEST Popsicle shop in Dallas. These Popsicles are all natural, and all delicious! I seriously can not get enough of them. I'd be lying if I said I haven't taken a few of the Greek yogurt ones home and had them for breakfast. Every single one of their Popsicles is amazing, and you won't even feel guilty after eating one... or five!
Cow Tipping Creamery I grew up just blocks from this little spot. The first time we headed over there, I almost cried seeing my old neighborhood. I reminisced of the things that used to be and fell in love with some of the new spots. Regardless, this little creamery has it figured out! They have a list of ice cream parings that are already designed for deliciousness, or you can chose your own mix ins. Did I mention on certain days you can get your ice cream in a donut? Yep. Heaven. My favorite is the High Tea (pictured above)!
Emporium Pie I have an undying love for this spot. The cute shop, the delicious pie, it just makes for a fabulous spot. They recently opened their newest location in Deep Ellum! My favorite is the Smooth Operator.
Sno Now, don't get me wrong, I love the little snow cone shacks just as much as the next person, but this all year round snow cone shop makes others look silly. They have such a huge array of flavors and you can get your snow cone "stuffed" with soft serve ice cream. *Insert heart eye emojis* because this place is heavenly, all year long! My favorite combo is a stuffed birthday cake sno!
Kate Weiser Chocolates She isn't rated one of the top chocolatier in the world for nothing. These chocolates are some of the most fabulous, delicious, tiny little tasty things you have ever put in your mouth!
Cake Bar Right next door to Kate Weiser is Cake Bar. A magical little place that serves only cake. The bright decor and friendly staff makes the cake going experience all the better! My favorite is the strawberry and the coconut cake!
Scrumbcious This little spot is truly a hidden gem. Deep in the City of Mesquite lies this incredible spot. They serve PIE SHAKES! This is a slice of pie, in a milkshake... Let that sink in for just a second. They also have a stand at the fair! Where they not only serve their famous pie shakes, but another fab fair food like fried cheeseburgers! My favorite pieshake is the coconut cream pie shake!
Serious question y'all- when you have three cookies on a plate, one is your favorite and two are your second favorite, do you eat your favorite first? Or Last? OR In the middle of the two second favorites? This is a serious dilemma! 🍪 On Monday morning I was tweeting about how blessed I am with my job. When I got to work that afternoon, this was waiting for me. I'm so thankful to have a job I seriously love, and more importantly, one where I know I am more than appreciated! ❤️
Tiff's Treats I can not say enough about Tiff's. They deliver warm, fresh cookies and brownies. And ice cream if you ask nicely. Granted, this spot started in Austin, there are so many locations in Dallas, it just feels like home. You can have them ordered all day long, and the fabulous delivery drivers at Tiff's Treats will serve them up to you hot and fresh just minutes after you order... Does it get much better than that? My favorite cookies are the snickerdoodle and chocolate chip!
Glazed Donut Works Is this breakfast? Or is it dessert? Does anyone really know? No. Does anyone really care? No. Because their donuts are delicious, and that's all anyone cares about. Nestled in the hustle and bustle area of Deep Ellum, hop in line around 11pm and patiently wait for GDW to open their doors. Or head over to Luck @ Trinity Gives and try their donuts & beer pairing, how can you go wrong with that one!?
Super Chix Custard You know how they say most people crave Chick Fil A on Sundays... Well Super Chix is your answer to those cravings! They are almost parallel to Chick Fil A in their menu items, with the exception of a few variations, and their amazing custard. They usually have two main custards and one custard of the week.
Have you been to any of the spots I mentioned? Or did I totally miss your favorite Dallas dessert spot?
