In a good way…
Eat dessert first or getting your just desserts. Either way, desserts are often our favorite meal! Sometimes, we think the best part of the dinner is the dessert; here are some of our favorites!
Not many people know about Sugar Rush Bar, which was previously located inside of Donut Kingdom and called the Shake Shop, but everyone should experience at least once. They have rebranded and moved, but they are still milkshake experts. Of course, you can’t go wrong at Donut Kingdom either way. Check out a hot-pressed donut; its decadent, yes, but amazing too.
Au Peche Mignon – Two locations with one on Timberlane Road and the other on North Duval Street, this authentic French Pastry Shop serves up handmade pastries, cakes, macarons, cookies, sandwiches, bread, pies, drinks, and chocolates.
Pong’s Boba Tea – Cheap and delicious boba drinks. Please note Mochi Monday deal for $1.
Big Easy Snowballs at 1621 N. Monroe Street and 2819 Mahan Drive has literally more than 75 flavors, some even sugar-free, of ice cream that they create using New Orleans-style machines. Take note, they close at 8 or 9 pm and are not open Tuesdays at all.
Mr. Cool at 633 W. Tennessee Street is the new and popular trend in ice cream. You see they roll, instead of scoop it (6 tight rolls equal to one scoop). The toppings are as interesting as the flavors. I haven’t tried this one, but I hear that liquid ice cream base with 3 toppings is the way to go.
Lucy and Leo’s Cupcakery isn’t just your average cupcake shop. Located at 1000 Thomasville Road, Lucy and Leo serve a fantastic variety of cupcakes, macaroons, cookies and cake balls. For those of you looking for gluten-free and vegan options; this is your place.
Dipped will deliver chocolate-covered strawberries and gourmet treats such as s’more truffles, Belgian waffles, and cheesecake. You name it; they’ve covered it in chocolate. Need I say more? 2401 W. Pensacola St. (FYI: You can get their deliciousness delivered for a penny through pennydelivers.com. No joke.)
Brusters Real Ice Cream is not just delicious and made fresh daily; it is available for delivery on UberEats.
Insomnia Cookies happens to be my son’s favorite. He was so excited to see it in NYC too. They make all kinds of specialty cookies and open from 9 am to 3 am. And for those late night study sessions; Insomnia Cookies obviously makes late night deliveries. They can even deliver ice cream.
Smallcakes on Apalachee is a cute little cupcakery next to Bonefish Grill. Our interns highly recommend it for those with a sweet tooth.
SoDough Baking Co. seems to be the new go-to place when you have a craving for donuts, cookies, pies or cinnamon rolls. Yes, all the sugary goodness you can imagine is on Thomasville Road.
Magda’s Coffee, Sweets & Eats is essentially an ice cream shop that opened in February and so far the reviews are fantastic. You can even order scoops, waffle cones, ice cream buns, coffee and specialty lattes right from your table at Centrale.
