Let’s get this out of the way first. I am not a dessert person. (Sorry, Zooey Deschanel)
I usually like savory snacks and foods, so if I want to eat dessert somewhere, it must be pretty darn good.
Austin has great food, and like anyplace with great food, great desserts. I had a ton of both while I was there, and I have rounded up my favorite sweets from the Lone Star State’s capital.
Bougie’s Donuts is a gourmet donut shop with unique donuts like Pineapple Upside Down Cake and Cherry Limeade. I ordered the Strawberry Shortcake and a regular glazed donut, AKA the Classic. If you’re a lover of good coffee, grab a cup here. They serve Cuvee!
If you know me, you know my love for tiny things, so right away, Tiny Pies had my heart! I’m a sucker for Apple Pie A La Mode and Tiny Pies had that too. We’re 2 for 2, people!
I’m including this one solely for my friends that love this sort of dessert because I can take it or leave it. I’m really only a fan of bananas by themselves (and sometimes cut up in Cheerios).
It’s both weird and not weird that I do not take a picture for Bananarchy. It’s weird because I take pictures of everything. It’s not weird because I was so excited to say “There is ALWAYS money in the Banana Stand,” that I didn’t have time to take a photo. I only had time to shove a banana in my face for my friend, John, and remember that I’m not a fan of cold bananas.
I did enjoy the banana dipped in peanut butter, though. If I can enjoy it, it must be the best darn banana stand in the country.
Here is an awesome picture that my friend, Lauren A., took, though!

When I was a kid, my mom would always say that “ice cream makes everything better.” This is very true of the Goat Cheese, Thyme, and Honey ice cream from @lickicecreams. I am pretty sure there is nothing this ice cream can’t fix, including the massive headache I have today.
Lick has amazing and unique flavors of ice cream. I can’t get over how good my Goat Cheese, Thyme, and Honey ice cream was. Like seriously, it had the best savory, sweet combo flavor. AND IT WAS SOOOO CREAMY! It was #dreamycreamy. Yep, I just typed that and you just read that. You’re welcome
Are you from Austin? Have you been to any of these places? Do you agree with this list? Did I miss your favorite dessert? Let me know in the comments below!
