We’re working on a feature for later this year on the best desserts in Dallas, and thought there was no better way to do it than crowd-source our readers. We’re looking for the best desserts from restaurants, bakeries, gas stations, wherever. So, have at it in the comments; we might choose to include it in the issue.

  1. Had the toffee croissant bread pudding at Stock and Barrel the other day and it was delish. Also, they had a really tasty peach and blueberry crumble. I don’t usually like peaches but that was pretty darn memorable.

  2. Nothing beats the Pecan Ball at Cafe Pacific Highland Park Village… simple delicious and mouthwatering !
    In my opinion!

  10. I have a sweet tooth soooo big that it has to be filed down every couple of months. My new all time favorite is the Chocolate Oblivion Mousse Cake at Eatzi’s. My taste buds say it is pure bliss and who am I to argue with them.

  11. Caramel Salted Cupcakes from Small Cakes! And then just cake in general from Red Raspberry Bakery.

  12. S’mores at Tillman’s Roadhouse! The maple marshmallow is, or course, the finest of the three ‘mallow options.

  13. Macaroons from Bisous Bisous, towered high and in every flavor imaginable!

  16. Chocolate Oblivion at Eatzi’s is the best choclate dessert in Dallas. Chocolate cake disk base, chocolate mouse (light-not too dense), topped with toffee pieces, drizzled with caramel and chocolate. YUM!
