I have a confession to make. I have a sweet tooth. A really big one. And sometimes I will base my lunch or dinner destination and/or order based on what will follow: dessert!!! That’s not to say I won’t mix and match. Get lunch from that place, grab dessert from this place.  

Here are some of my favorite places to get dessert:

Scoops Ice Cream & Candy – I had the honor of tasting their first batch of Homemade Scoops Fudge when they began offering fudge in 2021. Love it!!!

Sandy’s Popper – Great Popcorn and Ice Cream, and I love the Brownies. I am pretty sure they are meant to be paired with the ice cream treats, but I take mine sans ice cream!

Smarty's Sweets & Treats  – Cake Pops are one of my most favorite desserts – and this shop makes excellent ones!

Waterfront Warehouse – The S’more Flatbread. Yummy! All the years of getting unlimited bread, soup, and salad at lunch – I’ve never had room for dessert. And then one day I tried it and wondered why I never had before!

Bristol 45 Diner – It’s all about the pie case that greets you when you walk through the door. I already know what I’m going to order for my main meal – the Julienne Salad. But what shall it be for dessert? I am 90% sure it will be something chocolate that I choose! And don’t forget about all the options of shakes, malts, floats, and sundaes!

Tenuta's Delicatessen – Here it’s all about the Cannoli. But you know what my absolute favorite treat is? The Italian Cookies! I had them at a holiday party one year and have been hooked ever since!

House of Gerhard – I have had the pleasure of celebrating a few birthdays here with delicious desserts and the most excellent hospitality! Their chocolate cake is called Black Forrest Cake and it’s a German tradition with layers of dark chocolate and cherries. Superb! And the homemade muffins never disappoint!!!

Mason's Eatery & Pub – Love their Ultimate Cookie, described on the menu as half-baked chocolate chip cookie topped with vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, and powdered sugar. But what REALLY caught my attention the first time I ate here is Cotton Candy! I’ve never seen that on a restaurant’s menu before! So I had both.

Coopers Uptown – Whether you visit for the gift shop or the café with its coffee bar, breakfast items, and lunch menu – check out the delicious baked goods (which vary each day) and the soda fountain with shakes, floats, an old-fashioned sundae, and more on the menu!

Mars Cheese Castle – Don’t miss the castle’s in-house bakery with breads, sweets, and kringle. The cheesebread is very popular, and so too is the Danish Kringle.

Jerry Smith Produce & Pumpkin Farm – At this seasonal attraction, you must have their famous frosted cookies. Making them all the more special … they are only available at select times!

I could go on and on ... what can I say? I’m a connoisseur of desserts! Now you know how to stay on my sweet side. Just keep the desserts coming! And please don’t give me the check without asking first if I want dessert. Because I do.
