Where to Indulge Your Sweet Tooth in Dallas


Whether you’re ducking into an air-conditioned oasis for a scoop of gelato or placing an order for a box of highly-Instagrammable cupcakes, Dallas pretty much has the Metroplex beat when it comes to unique ways to satisfy that sweet tooth. So if you’re ready to impress a date, pick a place that the whole gang will love, or try something a little crazy… these are the spots you’ll wanna bookmark now.

Head over to Bishop Arts for a slice (or two) of heaven at this adorable house-turned-pie shop. This hot spot will fill up on the weekends, so be sure to visit during the week to enjoy a little quiet time. Our favorite? The Smooth Operator — silky chocolate with a salty pretzel crust. (314 N. Bishop Ave.)

This place serves up more than just a stellar dessert menu, but if you find yourself there and in need of sugar, pick from raspberry, chocolate, Grand Marnier, bread pudding, praline pecan, and blueberry. Pick a couple and share with your date. (5360 W. Lovers Lane Suite 220) (Photo: Rise Soufflé)

Can’t decide on how to treat yourself? This Snider Plaza spot has cookies, cupcakes, macarons, cakes, and pies, so there’s no need for everyone in your inner circle to decide on just one way to spend their cheat day. (6706 Snider Plaza) (Photo: Baked)

Cupcakes are great and all, but these ain’t your regular cupcakes. Order these ahead of time or just stop by for sugary sweet concoctions like Pebbles & Bam Bam, Snoopy, and Cookie Monster. We recommend ordering it ahead of time, as a lot of flavors tend to sell out throughout the day. (1201 Eldorado Ave.) (Photo: Trailercakes)

Don’t wait until a birthday party to get a gorgeous triple-layer slice of cake. And while you can’t go wrong with the classic vanilla and chocolate, you’ll want to try something a little different here. We recommend Key Lime or Neapolitan. (3011 Gulden Lane Ste. 117) (Photo: Cake Bar)

If you're at Cake Bar, then you only need to go next door to see Kate Weiser’s inventive and delicious bon bons. With dozens of flavors, you’ll want to grab a box or two plus some macarons. (3011 Gulden Ln, Ste. 115) (Photo: Kate Weiser Chocolate)

Let’s be real, eating iced treats in this Texas heat is the *responsible* thing to do… it prevents overheating! This Oak Cliff establishment has the classics, but they also have mouthwatering (and brain freezing) signatures, like the chamoy-filled mango pop dusted with Tajin. (415 W.

Think of gelato as a healthier alternative to ice cream. And that’s especially true at Botolino — everything is made from scratch in-store every day, using the best basic, raw ingredients that are entirely free of artificial flavorings, colors, and preservatives. For a nice summery treat, we recommend the lemon & mint sorbetto. (2116 Greenville Ave.) (Photo: Botolino Gelato)

While we’ve yet to find a frozen yogurt establishment that we dislike, YaYa takes the cake (pun intended) in our eyes. And with unique Tex Mex-inspired yogurt bases like Jalapeño and Horchata, you’ll definitely want to take your out-of-state friends here. (408 N. Bishop Ave. Ste. 104) (Photo: YaYa Best Tex Mex Yogurt)
