I think it's clear to see we are dessert people. On only the rarest occasions do we skip dessert after a meal. We are bestie's with almost all the employees at our favorite local dessert spots. While its nice to have friends that give you chocolate it sorta makes you feel like a fat ass... bittersweet. Here are our top two dessert places for sugar cravings, celebrations, cheering up and straight up boredom.

This is not your typical frozen yogurt bar. CoolKing has everywhere else beat with its amazing flavors and soft serve options. Alongside yogurt they have soft serve ice cream, custard, gelato and even acai smoothie. The texture is unreal. Everything is thick and creamy, no icy fro yo here. There is absolutely nothing you could want from the topping bar that they don't have. Fresh cookies and waffle cones are also available if your really looking to go all the way. Our favorite flavors are salted caramel popcorn, cake batter, and mothers cookies custard. Personally I like to overload my yogurt with captain crunch, gooey caramel and almond roca. When I'm feeling a little fatty I'll throw on some fresh strawberries ( because they are no calories.. right?)

We are obsessed. It might look like a hole in the wall donut shop but mama taught me not to judge a book by the cover and boy am I glad I stepped inside this joint. I fell in love. During a 3 night streak of donut runs to indulge on my favorite custard filled chocolate bar I gave a guilty look to the girl serving heaven. She looked at me with understanding and said “ I think there is crack in these... literally, I cant stop eating them.” She remarked on her recent weight gain and I told her it was worth it. Damn crack donuts.
The Donuttery is open 24/7 and for good reason. You can come to the shop at any time and there will be a line, 12 a.m. and 12 p.m. They go through donuts quickly and the wait can make you quite anxious especially when you only see two nutella strawberry donuts left. Our must have donuts are the custard filled chocolate bar, the nutella strawberry (which we have nick named the nutella jelly) and the chocolate cronut stuffed with custard. The cronut is a whole different beast, it is enormous and if your feeling friendly can be split into two. The donuts are so fluffy and doughy its a sin.
BRB. I went to get a donut.
Other greatly satisfying donuts are the maple bacon bars, award winning glazed blueberry and creme brûlée donuts. They also have a wide assortment of vegan donuts. I'm not vegan but I'm sure this is thrilling for the HB vegan community.
