Nine Atlanta Desserts Better Than Halloween Candy

View as Map

It's Halloween, y'all. But before breaking into a loved one's candy stash, remember that sugary cravings don't have to be fulfilled by sweets that are processed or fun-sized. To help you out, here's a map of restaurants (not bakeries or ice cream shops) offering nine desserts better than anything the kids in your neighborhood are getting tonight— and you won't even have to reach into a hollowed-out gourd or tell a bad joke to get 'em. Bonus: Not a single one has anything to do with pumpkin.

The goat cheesecake at Muss & Turner's is rich, creamy, and perfectly sized for a small treat after dinner— or lunch. We don't judge.

One Eared Stag

Copy Link

It's easy to fill up on the food and cocktails at One Eared Stag, but don't sleep on the restaurant's spiced plum panna cotta with shortbread, spicy gingerbread ice cream, and roasted plum.

South City Kitchen

Copy Link

The restaurant's banana pudding is renowned, but pastry talent Eric Wolitzky's pineapple upside down cake with bourbon caramel, sour cream cake, and ambrosia ice cream is a worthy new contender.

The Spence

Copy Link

The most popular dessert on the menu at The Spence is Andrea Litvin's chocolate cake with honey ice cream and almonds. Litvin's known for her innovative presentation as well as her faultless flavors, so don't be surprised if this doesn't come out plated like you'd expect.

Table And Main

With bourbon cream and housemade vanilla wafers, the rich, not-to-sweet chocolate pudding at Table & Main just called to be served in a mason jar. Try it.
