Downtown Bethesda is a hot spot for delicious desserts. These 10 are the best of the best.
- Yogi Berry
Yogi Berry is the perfect place to grab a quick dessert or snack. Between their rotating assortment of flavors and toppings, they are the best dessert place in all of Bethesda.
2. Max Brenner Chocolate Bar
One of the newer restaurants in Bethesda, Max Brenner’s is a great place to go when you are craving something sweet. Everything on their menu has some type of chocolate in it. You can even take a shot of chocolate!
3. Georgetown Cupcake
Georgetown Cupcakes did not get its own TV show for no reason. The cupcakes are delicious, and the icing is to die for. The store also gives out 100 free cupcakes a day!
4. Haagen Daaz
Although costly, Haagan Daz is the place to go when you want some ice cream. There are over 30 flavors you can choose from!
Paul, located in the new retail/residential buildings in Downtown Bethesda, is the new cool place to go for a quick bite to eat. Not only do they serve phenomenal desserts, but they also have a really good lunch menu. The only problem is that the service isn’t that great.
6. Le Pain Quotidien
Le Pain Quotidien has amazing pastries. Their hazelnut spread is better than Nutella.
7. La Madeleine
Although Madeline’s is a little walk away from what is considered Downtown Bethesda, it is worth the walk. It has the best fruit tarts and French onion soup. It is expensive though.
Most people don’t think of going to Sweet Green when they want dessert, but they should. Sweet Flow is amazing. It is a bit tart though, and they only have a limited flavor of toppings.
9. Toute de Sweet Pastry Shop
The food here is even tastier than it looks. The cupcakes and macaroons are almost too pretty to eat. The coffee is really good too.
10. Dolcezza Gelato
Dolcezza Gelato serves really good gelato. The only problem is the price. Most high schooler’s can’t afford to pay over $5 for the small size every time they want dessert.
