The Dessert Place Is Back and Wants to Send Cream Cheese Brownies to Your Door

A return 20 years in the making

The fondly remembered Dessert Place, a former Atlanta staple that shuttered way back in 1996, is making a comeback of sorts. There’s no storefront planned (at least, not at the moment), but those cream cheese brownies of your dreams are on the market once again. Marisa Meddin, the daughter and god daughter of original Dessert Place founders Sheryl Meddin and Bennett Frisch, is reviving the concept for limited retail and delivery.

The younger Meddin is eschewing a brick-and-mortar for an online shop, according to a Tuesday announcement. The beloved cream cheese brownies are available by the dozen and half-dozen, and a gluten-free variety is in stock as well. If you’re looking to grab one or two for immediate consumption, small quantities are available at Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit in Virginia-Highland and Michael Burton Colors in Buckhead. Delivery through Postmates is currently available, and Meddin expects to offer UberEats delivery soon.

“I’ve had so much fun bringing my mom and godmother’s business back to life in Atlanta,” Meddin said in a prepared statement. “I absolutely love seeing the excitement from loyal fans when they find out The Dessert Place is back. The brand and the desserts evoke such happy memories for so many people.”
