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.
Best Dessert Places
I was at a very popular Grand Rapids brewery last month and excitedly ordered cast-iron bourbon apples. Should have been a knockout. It was only “okay.”
So where can a girl get a great dessert around here?
The following places were voted the best spots for dessert in Grand Rapids in the annual Best of Grand Rapids awards. I’m trying these next. You should, too.
