There’s an endless number of desserts to try in New York, not all sweets are created equal. Some of them are worthy of a special trip, and some even define a restaurant. From chocolate and ice cream to cannolis and tiramisu, these are the NYC spots where you can always find somthing to your liking. Go on treat yourself, and be sure to join the gym or go on a long walk on monday,(After a weekend of eating).

If you want to go to a super trendy dessert spot, this is the place for you. This place is IG worthy, to get your pictures on, oh and the icecream is super good. Eggloo serves Asian fusion desserts in two different locations in Manhattan.If you’ve got a true sweet tooth, this will check off all the boxes for you: cakey waffle, ice cream and sugary toppers.

Straight Outta Japan. Oh and be prepared to wait in line. No matter what time of year it is, people are waiting to get their hands on this Japanese street food slash sweet treat. I’m not going to lie, the ice cream was good but I didn’t like the red bean paste that was in the cone. Not my thing, but you might like it. I suggest the matcha.
220 8th Ave, New York, NY 10011
I have to say that I LIKED this place. I had heard reviews- some good and some bad, btu I liked it. The cereal milk soft serve is to die for (yes, it tastes like the milk at the bottom of a bowl of cereal) comes out of left field. Oh and a must try is the crack pie, its like the real thing and you can get addicted (in a good way) real quick.

Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beers are known for their Crazyshakes, and let me say they are the real players. With an entire milkshake bar sitting at the entrance of the restaurant, we watched as the bartenders prepared our drinks and were wowed by the seemingly endless ingredients thrown into the glass. I went for my B-day and while the food was good, we (I) came for the milkshakes. My favorite was the Sweet N’ Salty, a peanut butter shake comprising pretzels, peanut butter cups, whipped cream, and a chocolate-frosted rim topped with M&M’s. Talk about good. They have more to choose from, so grab some friends and have a shake.

The matcha ice cream….soooo gooooddddd!!! It was very enjoyable.If you are an ice cream lover and wants to try something different then this is the place to go. It can get pretty busy, but good for IG pics.
DŌ, Cookie Dough Confections
550 LaGuardia Pl, New York, NY 10012
Who didn’t love licking out the bowl when you were baking cookies as a kid? Well that wasn’t safe, but This cookie dough at DŌ makes it ok to eat. It is on the sweet side, but I actually found this at a walmart in the frozen cookie section. which is great for when I’m not in NYC. You can add your dough to ice cream, milkshakes, pretty much anything on the menu.
The Good Batch
936 Fulton St, Brooklyn, NY 11238
Head to Brooklyn for an ice cream sandwich to remember! Just amazing how delicious the food is! You can get everything you want, from cookies to cakes and scones! I ordered the Birthday Cake Ice Cream sandwich. The Birthday Cake Ice cream sandwich comes with 2 sugar cookies that sandwich the ice cream. Then there are rainbow sprinkles, on the cookies itself and inside the ice cream. It tasted just like a cake! There was a hint of lemon, which was awesome.
Ice & Vice
221 E Broadway, New York, NY 10002
Ice & Vice deserves all of its accolades.Their basic flavors are far from basic– Opium Den spikes white sesame with poppy seeds and lemon, say what? I’ve never heard of this before. Do note that the scoops are large and dense; come hungry or with a partner in crime. They do allow you to sample flavors and after sampling Milk Money, I was sold! It was creamy, not too sweet and the chocolate ganache was a dream! I also got the chance to try Basic B which is a great option if you’re looking for something simple.
Looking forward to try other flavors on the menu!
10Below Ice Cream
10 Mott St, New York, NY 10013
I love watching these videos in Youtube, of the guy/girls rolling ice cream. I have one word, tiny. This place is small. I came with my cousin and we had to wait 20 min but it was worth it. Some guy was filming for Youtube with was cool, but idk his channel. The place is small inside. We got our ice cream and quickly got out of there.The ice cream was amazing, it tasted incredibly fresh, had a nice texture to it and it didn’t leave that weird coating of oil on your tongue which I’ve had the not so pleasant experience of at some different places (Not on this list). A word of advice: Go during the off-season, not summer so you don’t have to wait inline.
To be real, I won’t be back. I can say that I tried it but not worth going out my way to get.
