Top 5 Places to Get Dessert in South Beach
Desserts are, arguably, the most awaited part of a good meal.
No matter how simple or grand a spread is, a sweet serving of your favorite dessert at the end makes all the difference-- even if you've already filled your tummy with food to the brim!
But what makes a dessert memorable?
Yes, the taste is definitely relative, but a dessert, by my standards, should give a warm feeling of satisfaction to your palate.
A sharp sweetness, perhaps?
Or maybe the right mix of smooth and rough texture, with each bite reminding you of home.
You may find that the younger palate sees desserts of high-level sweetness satisfying, but a mature palate appreciates toned-down sweets just a tad bit more.
Whatever the case, South Beach fulfills every dessert lover's request with a full array of dessert shops and spots that will make any sweet tooth craving come alive at a whim.
And to help you choose your next SoBe dessert stop, here are the top 5 dessert places you can try while you're here.
