Best Places to Get Dessert in New Orleans

Salon by Sucre

Salon by Sucre

Legendary dessert shop owned by Tariq Hanna is a sweet tooth heaven. Not only do they have display cases full of treats for the dessert connoisseur, but upstairs is a classy lunch spot that is buzzing with stylish New Orleanians. If that wasn’t enough they installed a drool-worthy Modbar coffee brewing machine which rivals most sports cars in its intricacy and performance.

Little Vic’s

Little Vic’s

This small gelateria is smack in the middle of the French Quarter making it a convenient stop after dinner.  Try the salted caramel gelato.  Then choose from their small selection of liqueurs like Cynar, a bittersweet Italian digestivo, that you can order neat or pour in your coffee.

Angelo Brocato

Angelo Brocato

This Sicilian ice cream shop is a New Orleans institution that literally everybody loves.  Open since 1905, this classic parlor is home to some of the best canolis in the city.  Want coffee?  They have classic Cafe au Lait that you’d be smart to pair with one of a dozen house-made biscotti.

Culinary institutions Chef John Folse and Rick Tramonto knock it out of the park with their spectacular dessert menu that can be enjoyed at the bar if you didn’t have dinner at the restaurant, which you definitely should have.  Among the best is the White Chocolate Bread Pudding Crème Brûlée.

Cafe Du Monde

Cafe Du Monde

It would be crazy to not include this cafe in a list of dessert joints.  Always open, Cafe Du Monde is one of the most classic New Orleans experiences you can have.  Get the coffee and beignets, but be sure to watch your shirt.  The powdered sugar is notoriously erratic.
