The Baking Never Stops

Dessert is one of those things you say you're too full to eat, yet you always seem to finish off the overflowing chocolate molten cake sitting in front of you. Of course if you don't feel that way than all the power to you for stopping yourself from devouring that decadent cake up, but I am one of those people that just can't say no to dessert. Of course with that being said, dessert is one of those things I can't live without and so I scoured the ends of The Niagara Region's earth and found you the best of the best dessert shops in town. Not only will you succumb to a whole lot of chocolatey goodness, but you'll experience some of the best crepes, gelato and cupcakes this region has ever seen. Just a little peak as to what you're getting your dessert loving self into; at The Paris Crepes Bistro you'll feel as though you just hopped on a plane and ventured off to Paris for the night, at Small Cakes you'll be taken back to your childhood with all the pretty cupcakes and cakes and at The Shaw Cafe you'll fall in love with desserts all over again. The beauty about this list is that there is something for everyone, no matter how much you love to hate desserts. So go on, get out there, the Niagara Region can't wait for you to embrace in all the beautiful bounties of desserts it has to share with you.
