What's your ride and die for dessert in the city? Something specific that is absolutely delicious. My A tier currently is Taharka brothers graham ice cream, Sally Os birthday cake with bourbon ice cream, and Capital Grille's Cheesecake w / Codetta coming in a close second in the cheesecake race - that caramelized sugar crunch on Caps Grille just does it for me.

My grandmother and father would be very upset with me if I didn’t say Vaccaro’s here.

Cannoli chips, kids. They’re legit. But everything is good there. (Chocolate topped cream puff gang wya)

I second Vaccaros. Never had a bad thing there. The waffles with gelato on top, too. Nom.


superdreamcast64 t1_islxwjx wrote

their Almond Joy gelato is genuinely one of the best frozen treats i’ve ever had. i’m glad i don’t work so close to there anymore or else i’d eat it every day!

My family lives in PG, so by no means is it a long drive to see them, but when I don’t bring vaccaros they’re like “why even bother” and it would hurt my feelings but the place rocks.

I live like a couple minute walk from this place and never tried it. Might have to sometime.

Vaccaro’s almond cookies cost a ton but every once in awhile I just drop $20 and I’m in heaven for a little while

Sour cherry crumb pie from Dangerously Delicious.

I was sad when they converted their Hampden location into a test kitchen. Feel like the number of variety of flavors went down at that location. I do love a good cherry crumb pie though

Half baked blondie from The Food Market. Comes with toasted marshmallow, berries, ice cream and chocolate sauce. My favorite dessert ever.

PB&J delight at rocket. A deep fried sandwich with ice cream and whipped cream- it’s ridiculous but it really works.


mousey293 t1_ispeovm wrote

This is a very good addition to the list, but one that is best enjoyed with friends because that thing is HUGE.

Banana pudding from Creole Soul in R. House.

Pine Nut cake from Tio Pepe.

I swear they started skimping on ingredients the last couple of years though. The cake got smaller (for carryout / holiday order) and they were definitely missing some almond extract...

Cap'n Crunch French Toast at Blue Moon. I consider it to be dessert.

Anyone who has the Sugar Bakers Smith Island Cake on their menu.


mousey293 t1_ispekxs wrote

Oh, YES. Cap'c Crunch French Toast was a revelation when I first had it.

Sacre Sucre makes amazing desserts. Or Frazier from Patisserie Poupon.

Pâtisserie Poupon: Clearly I am boring, but my favorite thing there is the madeleines. I also love their pumpkin cheesecake. Matter of fact, let me see if they have started with pre-orders. The yule logs afe also fun.

Sweet potato cheesecake from Shareefs is pretty good in my opinion

I love the half baked blondie at Food Market.


issabop_2208 t1_isob8u8 wrote

The single best dessert I’ve ever had was the tonka bean bun from I think Bramble Baking co. that I got from Sophomore Coffee. I can’t even explain how amazing it was, but it was perfect. I’ve only had it once and never since and it makes me sad.

Taharka Bros ice cream consistently blows any other ice cream I've had out of the water. Just yesterday I had some Charmery mint chocolate chip (I forget the official name of it) and I was like "this is lovely, but it can't hold a candle to Mintflix N Chillz". Hard to pick between that and Roasted Strawberry and Coffee Oreo though.

And aside from those, honestly any of the desserts at Papi's Hampden are absolutely divine. Right now it looks like they only have churros or the tres leches cake, both of which are out of this world delicious, but I think they used to have fried ice cream as well? I could be misremembering. But point being - they are simple, but made exquisitely well. 10/10.


And we cannot forget Dangerously Delicious Pies, because the Baltimore Bomb pie is absolutely a staple for a reason, but I'll also put in a vote for their blueberry pancake pies, which have no reason to be as delicious as they are.
