Dessert is the surest way to end your dinner on a high note. It can be chocolaty, fruity, simple, or decadent—and many are perfectly acceptable to eat for breakfast, too. From milkshakes and macarons to custards and crumb cakes, the city is full of places to get your sweet fix. Here are some highlights.

FEATURED RESTAURANT 
Crave Dessert Bar
500 W. Fifth St., Ste. 120
704-335-0588
This uptown nightspot serves exquisite desserts, signature cocktails, hookah, and house beats. Grab a seat at the bar of this art-filled, loftlike lounge and sip a Hibiscus Bellini or cozy up on a couch and indulge in some Drunken Tiramisu or a piece of Molten Lava Cake. If you prefer to drink your sweets, get a “sippable” dessert like Thicker Than a Snicker, Lemon Meringue, or Key Lime Pie. Either way, you’re bound to go home in a sugar coma.
