1. Kokopelli Sweets

Launched in 1992, Kokopelli Sweets has been supplying the Dallas area with the most refreshing gelato in the West End. Inspired by the authentic and decadent tastes and desserts of Italy, this spot is a community favorite that you won’t want to miss. If you’re in more of a cake or brownie mood, take a leap and try their summer specialties, such as Berry Mascarpone cake or their famous Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Slice. Cheesecake and pie are available year-round too! The spot keeps its menu rotating on what’s seasonal and locally available, so be sure to stop in for the most up-to-date lists of flavors.

2. Dallas Cookie Dough Co.

Sometimes all you want to do is to curl up with a big dish of your favorite cookie dough. With Dallas Cookie Dough Co., you can! This sweet shop specializes in edible and artisan cookie dough options, giving you all of the delicious comforts of the dessert with none of the risk. Customers can enjoy their dough in the form of a “brookie” (brownie-cookie), a Dough-reo (which is an Oreo cookie with a cookie dough center), and a Toaster–an iced Pop-tart stuffed with cookie dough of your choice.

Beyond their innovative new takes on several of your favorite desserts, the Dallas Cookie Dough Co. also specializes in delicious dough “cakes,” cupcakes, cookies, and cookie cakes. Whether you’re on the hunt for your next BBQ dessert (or you’re looking for the perfect way to spend a Saturday), this dessert spot should be at the top of your list.

3. Creamistry

Creamistry is just as it sounds: the magic of ice cream with the fun addition of chemistry. At Creamistry, team members create fresh ice cream made to order, using liquid nitrogen and whole, delicious ingredients to give you the perfect scoop. There are plenty of vegan and non-dairy options, and the entire experience is fully customizable. This is the perfect dessert spot for those with a more demanding palette or who are looking for a healthier alternative to their favorite desserts.

The menu at Creamistry swaps seasonally and features delicious flavors such as Matcha Green Tea, Milk Coffee, and Cookie Butter. You can also get any scoop of choice in a Nitroshake form, which is a custom milkshake mixed with your favorite toppings and mix-ins. Science never tasted so good!
