"The Valrhona chocolate brownie at Chandler's or the chocolate truffle cookie at Dahlia Bakery."

"Chandler's Crabhouse on South Lake Union serves a breath-stopping banana cream pie that is large enough for two people to share...but why would you want to? "

Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery

Copy Link

"Anything at Hot Cakes. I love basic chocolate cake, the boozy shakes, their homemade Ding Dong, and don't overlook their incredible coffee drinks made with Blue Star coffee (out of this world)."

"Hot Cakes, hands down. I like to eat the decadent chocolate cake because it features a whole Theo chocolate bar! I think they do a wonderful job with the s'mores chocolate chip cookies, too! [Owner Autumn Martin] smokes her own chocolate chips and the cookies have the best mix of saltiness, gooey-ness, chocolate, marshmallowness, YUM!"

Dahlia Bakery

Copy Link

"Triple coconut cream pie at any Tom Douglas Restaurant or Dahlia Bakery."

"You really need to ask? TRIPLE. COCONUT. CREAM. PIE. at most Tom Douglas joints."

"Another vote for the triple coconut cream pie at the Dahlia Bakery. It's not an accident that it's so famous!"

"Tom Douglas’ coconut cream pie is definitely my top dessert. The Tollhouse Magic at Bluwater Leschi is a close second."

The Whale Wins

Copy Link

"The eton mess at Whale Wins. It is so much more than the sum of its parts; cream, rhubarb and meringue mesh perfectly. The dessert is actually interesting until the last bite, and when it's gone, you immediately want another, or 3."

"In my opinion, the El Diablo at Tango is one of the best desserts in the city. The bittersweet chocolate square sits in a pool of caramel, roasted marshmallow and salty almonds that satisfy the sweet salty combo I crave."

"The El Diablo at Tango is still the best dessert in town!"

"The cheese plates at Altura are amazing, and they serve them as dessert — probably the best dessert cheese I've had in a Seattle restaurant. They approach and mingle with perfection. Well worth using a course to get a cheese plate. You will not be disappointed."
