Most people have no idea how huge the food scene is in Dallas. Whether you are looking for a mom and pop restaurant with the best meatloaf in the state, or if you are after a five-star dining experience, this city has it all. Of course, you can’t have the best meal of your life without dessert! There is no rule that says you have to order dessert at the same place you eat your meal. Like New York City, many locals here will have appetizers at one restaurant, move onto the main course somewhere else, and then venture to a dessert place to finish off their meal before either going home or moving onto a wine bar or martini lounge.
Nearly every city in America has a cupcake place now; why should Dallas be any different? Who doesn’t love a good cupcake? The second you walk through the door you are greeted with a sweet fragrance that gets your taste buds dancing. They are a little pricey, but definitely delicious. A few of the most popular flavors include Chocolate Marshmallow, Triple Cinnamon, Strawberry, and Chai Latte. There is even a Vegan Red Velvet option, as well as Doggie flavor for your four-legged friend.
Rise No 1
This is not specifically a dessert place, but they have the best sweet soufflés you will ever taste. This French Bistro has mastered the soufflé. The Bread Pudding and Grand Marnier flavors are recommended. They also serve a banana fosters that gets an honorable mention.
Whether you need to bring home dessert or if you are stopping by a friend’s house for coffee, you want to swing by Crème de la Cookie. Everything here is amazing! They have cookies, macaroons, cupcakes, and a huge selection of cake balls. No, you cannot eat just one! There are also pies, fudge, cinnamon rolls, and muffins too.
When it is 100 degrees, and you have been lying by the pool all day, this is where you go for an icy cold dessert. As if there are not already a ton of flavors to try, they offer an extensive selection of toppings. It would take a very long time to run out of flavor combinations to try. Must-haves include Pistachio, Toasted Coconut, and Red Velvet Cake Batter.
The greatest thing about Tiff’s Treats is it is right downtown Dallas, and delivery is available! The Snickerdoodle and Chocolate Chip flavor cookies are so good, and everything is made from scratch. If you actually stop in, you will want to try a brownie sundae made with Blue Bell ice-cream.
Sometimes, there is absolutely nothing that can satisfy a sweet tooth the way that a mouthwatering piece of fudge can. There is a new featured flavor every week, just in case you need a change from your favorite. The Dark Chocolate Carmel Sea Salt is highly recommended.
There are people who literally order hundreds of these little pieces of heaven for their wedding or other large events. Imagine a single serve Bundt cake in flavors like red Velvet, White Chocolate Raspberry, and Cinnamon Swirl that is then turned into a beautiful flower with their signature velvety cream cheese frosting. They also deliver, in case you want to send one to someone for a special gift instead of flowers!
