1. CYPRESS: All the Crave Cheesecakes
Sweet critique: “I have to say these were such a fun and yummy find. I’m not always a huge cheesecake person, but the texture of these and the size are perfect. I think they are such a nice change from ‘traditional’ small bite desserts like cupcakes and cookies. The flavors are out of this world, and it’s so fun to go through and try them all to decide which one is the best. My husband loves the banana cream pie, I love the wedding cake and my stepdaughter is a huge fan of the seasonal Irish cream flavor. I love the quality and time they put into these yummy treats and am always so happy when I get to stop in.” – Ashley R.

2. THE HEIGHTS: Red Dessert Dive
Sweet critique: “We were too excited to take a photo before cutting, but Red Dessert Dive is SO YUMMY! We got a strawberry cake with cream cheese icing and fresh strawberry filling. The cake was very moist and had lots of flavor. The prices are affordable and the workers were very friendly inside. You can go in for small pre-made desserts too! Thank you, we will be back!” – Dani Jo Vasquez

3. THE HEIGHTS: Fluff Bake Bar
Sweet critique: “Cute little place. Very friendly staff. Clean display. I appreciated all the names with the selections. We got tea cake with berries, a unicorn cookie, a fluffy butter cookie, lemon pound cake, and a sugar cookie. Prices are economical. But the best part everything tasted delicious!!! We were full after breakfast but still ate everything, it was that good!! They had a couple of tables outside but no seating inside yet. Didn’t matter. We took the things to go. Must try!” – Ameena Sethi

Sweet critique: “WOW. I got 6 cinnamon rolls for my sister’s birthday because I couldn’t decide which one to get! The owner was amazingly nice. The rolls are TO DIE FOR. So good! And all vegan! I am not vegan, and I loved them. Couldn’t taste the difference. I want to go back and get more!!” – Kaitlyn S.

5. SUGAR LAND: Decadent
Sweet critique: “Everyone knows I LOVE fruit pebbles, so the rice crispy fruity pebbles was so sweet and so good! We also had the red velvet cookie which was just as good. The molten lava cake with vanilla bean on top was so rich and chocolatey! Definitely, a must get when stopping here.” – Jeremy D.

6. IN THE LOOP: Treacherous Leches
Sweet critique: “The absolute best tres leches I’ve ever had. I go every time I can when I’m in Houston, and I haven’t had a bad one yet. The Caramel/Cinnamon Toast Crunch one was amazing, so was the red velvet, pina colada, Reese’s. I did not have those all in one night, but I wish I could have.” – Crawford J.
