The ultimate dessert can also be a meal at Creperie du Village. Inspired by the Alps, this cozy restaurant has more than 10 variations of crepes on its menu, from Nutella-filled to apricot confiture. If the sweet side of things doesn't satisfy the palate, there's an slew of savory options too.
This Italian staple is known for its dessert options. If you hang out long enough, one may end up on your table. For a single, scrumptious dessert, order the Torta di Gelato al Pistacchio, pistachio gelato cake with sabayon sauce. It's light but satisfying and a true specialty.

Desserts at the Chefs Club inside the St. Regis aren't just a treat, they're a form of art.

As the chefs rotate for the summer, expect trend-setting ideas in the dessert department from some of the country's best new chefs.

Strawberries, cheesecake and lollipops are all delicious on their own--combining them makes dessert simply sinful. Coated in ground vanilla wafers, the cheesecake and strawberry compote is the quintessential patio treat on a warm spring or summer day.
5 Paradise Bakery
During the summer months, the line is always out the door at this cookie and gelato shop. Even though it has locations in nine states, the desserts taste like they came out of grandma's kitchen. Try the black diamond cookie for a chocolate-y treat, or cold cappuccino chip ice cream which satisfies cravings and offers a caffeine buzz.
