When they said Lauderdale-By-The-Sea had good food, they sure weren't kidding! 

Have you seen their lineup of desserts?

The small beach town lies on Florida's east coast, between Fort Lauderdale and the Village of Sea Ranch Lakes

It is on a long, narrow barrier island separated from the mainland by the Intracoastal Waterway (spanned by one drawbridge at Commercial Boulevard), stretching approximately one-half dozen blocks to the Atlantic Ocean. The town's northern municipal neighbor is Pompano Beach.

Albeit, not as many options as a sweet tooth would like, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea doesn't 'sleep' on sweet treats. 

You may even see some familiar dessert shops in town if you know where to look. *wink*

And if you don't find what you're craving, this laidback barrier island town also shares some of Florida's favorite desserts with its "next-door neighbors," Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach, so you won't run out of sweets to try while you're here! 

All you need to do is catch the Sun Trolley, and the next thing you know, you're at your next favorite dessert spot! 

Here are the top 5 dessert places you can try while you're here (in no particular order).

And get this, everything is made by hand-- EVERY PIECE OF CHOCOLATE! 

Each confection receives many "touches," either by loving hands or time-tested machines. 

For example, the final step of creating their delicious Chocolate-Covered Caramels involves the delicate decorative touch of a gloved finger β€” not a stamp from a mechanized cookie-cutter! 

Even their burnished copper kettle fire mixer used to make Peanut Brittle predates World War II! 

And did I mention they have ice cream too?
