Grand Rapids Dessert Places Will Knock Your Socks Off

Don’t skip the best part of dinner – the delicious dessert at the end.

Dessert is basically what I look forward to at every restaurant in Grand Rapids, yet not all places have a stellar dessert game.

Local candy shops consistently deliver, and there isn’t an ice cream place in West Michigan that’s a dud.

But finding an amazing dessert in Grand Rapids feels elusive.
