The icing on the cake to a fantastic dinner? A tasty dessert bar. Now, I am not talking about a strawberry lemonade bar or a chocolate chip cheesecake bar or a brownie, or even a bakery. I am talking about an actual dessert destination restaurant.


Dessert bars are a dentist’s worst nightmare. One dessert bar, ChikaLicious in New York City, serves desserts from a three-course prix fixe menu with desserts for every meal. This intimate, 20-seat dessert bar features fresh and fun individual desserts.


Spot, a dessert bar with three locations in New York, combines traditional dishes with a dose of Asian flare. Spot combines ingredients such as green tea, kobacha, yuzu and more. Choose from some of their special tapas sets, such as the Chocolate Green Tea Lava Cake, Golden Toast, Coconut Monkeybread or the Matcha Garden. Spot has vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free selections.


Kaminsky’s Dessert Café entices dessert-lovers with its changing selection of in-house desserts. Kaminsky’s not only offers desserts, but milkshakes, specialty coffees, dessert martinis, hot toddies and cold beverage creations. Order a root beer float, a childhood favorite; a Krispy Kreme milkshake topped with an original glazed doughnut hole; or perhaps a Dreamsicle adult milkshake. As per their menu, the adult milkshakes are known to bring the boys to the yard. Be sure to stop by the next time you are in Columbia or Charleston, S.C.
