Five Places to Get Delectable Desserts



Looking for a sweet way to end your day? These desserts in Charlottesville are sure to satisfy any sweet tooth, and they're beautiful to boot!


Banana Bread at Bizou

Few things have staying power like Bizou’s banana bread dessert. It’s been on the menu since the mid-1990s and it never gets old. With warm caramel and vanilla ice cream, it’s pretty much Charlottesville dessert perfection!

Chap’s Ice Cream

Desserts can get fussy and fancy, and if that’s not your thing, a classic ice cream cone from Chap’s could be the ticket. Just simple, nostalgic perfection. Get a cone in your favorite flavor and stroll the Downtown Mall with the whole family.

Sweets from Marie Bette Cafe

Desserts that are too gorgeous to eat but too delicious not to finish. That’s the conundrum you’ll be faced with when you choose any of the confectionaries from Marie Bette Cafe on Rose Hill Drive. 

Pie from The Pie Chest

Your pursuit of a perfect pie can end once you enter The Pie Chest, just off the Downtown Mall on Fourth Street. Cherry, apple, pecan. Like Ariana Grande sings, you see it, you like it, you want it, you got it. And it’s so darn tasty!

Princess Cake at Albemarle Baking Co.

Don’t be fooled. This angelic looking confection has broken hearts and led nations to the brink of war. It’s seriously that good. Like the Helen of Troy of cakes. Mmmmmm!
