White Chocolate Rum Tile at Bolsa

There’s something to be said about desserts that take you back to your childhood- back when you wanted to only eat sweets for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The White Chocolate Rum Tile at Bolsa, with its ‘nilla wafer crust and creme brulee bananas covered in a rich toffee sauce, will take you back to your after-school afternoons.

S’mores at Tillman’s Roadhouse

If you just didn’t make it to the woods this summer for that good ‘ol return to nature, bring your inner camper to Tillman’s for their table side s’mores. You are supplied with a small kind of fire pit and homemade marshmallows, your choice of mocha, maple and orange flavors, plus some excellent semi-sweet chocolate chunks and rustic graham crackers. Just keep the campfire tunes to a low hum.

Green Tea Ice Cream Cake at Asian Mint

Their signature dessert, the Green Tea Cake at Asian Mint is perfect for those looking for a not-so sweet treat. It’s a tower of green tea ice cream and airy, green tea flavored spongecake topped off with vanilla icing and yet another scoop of that awesome ice cream. It’s served chilled to perfection, so it’s perfect for those dog day afternoons.

Moon Pie at Screen Door

Since I can’t get enough marshmallows, the twist on the old school favorite Moon Pie at Screen Door gets a spot on the list. This homemade marshmallow comes squished between two fluffy, flourless chocolate cakes with a side of ice cold RC Cola. There’s plenty to go around, but don’t feel like you have to share.

The Chocolate Torte at Ocean Prime

Possibly the most indulgent on the menu, this could be the one naughty thing you do this year.The chocolate peanut butter torte is a puck of velvety peanut butter mousse topped with a bittersweet chocolate ganache and oreo cookie crust.
