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, but after visiting Japan, I have been chasing the same high I got in Japan when eating desserts and pastries there.
Austin has great food and great desserts. I had a ton of both while I was there.
Some of my favorites include:
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!
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 eat the frozen banana and 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 banana in my face.
Here is an awesome picture that my friend, Lauren A., took, though!
Lick Honest Ice Cream

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!
Are you from Austin? Do you agree with this list? Did I miss your favorite dessert? Let me know in the comments below!
