Time to Indulge: 7 of the Best Dessert Spots in Downtown Bellevue
One of the few hallowed secrets guarded by adulthood is that dessert can be enjoyed at any time of day. Whether those stolen moments of joy and reverie are found in a flecked pastry from your favorite corner bakery or by capping a night out on the town with a sugary swirl of frozen goodness scooped into a cone. Ease back into your work routine after a holiday hiatus with a few of these sweet tooth suggestions found in the #HeartofBellevue community:
If the syrupy aroma of batter sizzling on a waffle iron isn’t enough to lure you inside, then the fourteen scrumptious flavors on display, including four rotated seasonally, will certainly do the trick! We recommend trying Cocoa Crispy Milk for a taste of childhood nostalgia, (almost as satisfying as slurping down the last few drops of your favorite toasted chocolate cereal.)
Dairy alternatives, like the Lemon Bar and Coconut Chunk vegan varieties, are equally delicious and suited for any craving!
