We found five sweet shops around Houston serving up some of the most decadent desserts in town. All locations listed are currently open for takeout, curbside and/or delivery.

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.
Address: 11901 Barker Cypress Rd. #5, Cypress, TX 77433
2. HUMBLE: Humble Pies
Sweet critique: “I’m in love with everything at this eatery. From the lovely couple running it to the artisan pies they created. You can truly taste the love and care they put into their pies with each bite. In these tumultuous times that are giving us anxiety, take a moment to pick up a pie to share with family from people that cook like they are your family.” – Terrance B.

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!

4. 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.

5. 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.
