National Dessert Day is October 14, and we’re getting ready for it with 9 of the best desserts in Huntsville. Each one of these were suggested by locals, so you know they’re good. We’ve got something for everybody in this list, so read on to find something that could be your new favorite!

1. Cookie Fix cookies

We’re putting Cookie Fix at the top of our list because so many people recommended it! Their cookies are baked daily and there’s always something new on the menu to try (so we couldn’t pick just one!).

2. Pain au Chocolat at L’Etoile Patisserie

This is another one that comes highly recommended by locals. L’Etoile Patisserie serves all kinds of fresh pastries and they have a fresh menu each week. But one item that stays on it is the Pain au Chocolat. It’s homemade croissant dough wrapped around four dark chocolate rods—it’s simple but divine.

BONUS: We got the story behind L’Etoile, and it’s an inspiring one!

3. Cinnamon Rolls at Regale Cupcakery

This is my kind of salad. A sweet-sweet-and salty Southern classic dessert. This one’s a staple at many holiday tables in the South, but you can get it year-round at Dallas Mill Deli in Five Points.

The strawberry pretzel salad from Dallas Mill is the BEST!!


6. The Yard Milkshakes

7. Limoncello Torte at Bacchus Wine & Tapas

For something a little bit more refined, make sure to check out Bacchus Tapas’ dessert menu. They’ve got different types of pies and cakes, but the Limoncello Torte is one of the best.
