Its no secret I have a major sweet tooth. If you share my passion for diabetes inducing foods these are my top places to indulge in the Minneapolis/St.Paul area:
(2605 Nicollet Avenue)
This place is THE PLACE for donuts…serious.. don’t mess with other places. Just go here. This is the place where Rockabilly and sugar meet. My top favs are the bombshell and pucker up. Go early to avoid sell outs and huge lines. Bring these for your morning meeting and you will be promoted…to CEO.
(4321 Upton Ave South & 1007 West Franklin Ave S)
The ice Cream here is amazing, Nicollet pot hole is my ‘must get’ flavor. They also have shakes, sundaes, ice cream cakes…. basically anything frozen and delicious. The linden hills location (4321 Upton) is particularly family friendly, with a huge seating area inside and out.
(4552 Grand Ave South)
Think Paris…. beautiful desserts almost to pretty to eat. Get the petit Chocolat… well, get everything…
(4501 Excelsior Blvd St Louis Park)
Chocolate coconut pie… thats all I have to say…. so good.
(3220 West Lake street mpls & 8107 Eden Prairie rd, Eden Prairie)
My favorites include the Bouchon and the eclairs…. but honestly you can’t go wrong here.
(third floor by Shake Shack, Bloomington mn)
Yes I know. When I heard that the cake boss was coming to town I sort of rolled by eyes. Anyone who has a tv show has sold out and their stuff is probably pretty mediocre. Well I just tried it a few days ago and I will eat my words… along with a Sfogliatella. Let me also say one more thing about Carlo’s…. I picked up some basic chocolate cupcakes for the girls… I tried a bite. holy moly. They tasted like chocolate. In a world where so much stuff is bland and most things labelled “chocolate” hardly deserve the title, these really were quality.
(850 Grand Ave)
This is my go to place for birthday cakes. I love this place so much my wedding cakes (yes cakeSSS) were from here. One of my favorite things about Latte is you can order by the slice… I recommend going with a few friends and splitting a few slices, variety is the spice of life! You cannot go wrong with their signature turtle cake, or any of their many variations of Tres Leche. ps- they serve Champagne ….
(211 7th Street west)
This place is amazing… a giant Italian cafeteria, a bakery, and a full Italian supermarket under one roof. The bakery has some amazing stuff… but I like the cannolis…I’m old school like that…
