5 Don’t Miss Desserts

Tired of the same ol’ dessert options? Whether you are “too full” or “counting calories,” there’s no excuse. Here are five desserts you don’t want to skip while dining out in Plano. It was too hard to nail down just five, so don’t miss our honorable mentions!

Mexican Sugar

Don’t let the name of this dessert scare you off. Mexican Sugar’s Chocolate Avocado Cake is simply divine. It’s an ancho spiced chocolate cake with cinnamon meringue, chocolate avocado mousse and ganache. If you’re counting calories, skip your second margarita for this treat.

Taverna Rossa

After indulging in an artisan cheese board and craft pizzas, an order of their Homemade TX Whiskey Chocolate Stout Cake served with Plano’s award-winning Henry’s Homemade Ice Cream over candied bacon (yum!) is a must.

The Keeper

New at The Shops at Legacy across from Mexican Sugar is The Keeper, a modern seafood restaurant that focuses on freshness and sustainability. All of the fish is flown in daily from its dock in the Pacific and the menu is inspired by Vietnam, Polynesia, and Hawaii. It’s important to end a fantastic dinner on a high note and these two unique offerings do not disappoint: Bubble Waffle Sundae with sweethouse ice cream, marshmallow fluff, butter rum sauce, and caramelized pineapple; and Coconut Cream Wontons with coconut cream filling, chocolate ganache, whipped cream, and micro shiso.

Tommy Bahama

Newly opened at Legacy West, Tommy Bahama has a beautiful dessert tray that is presented to you after your meal, featuring Peanut Butter Pie, Pina Colada Cake, White Chocolate Mousse, Malted Chocolate Pie, and Pineapple Crème Brûlée. One of the stand outs though is their famous Key Lime Pie.

XO Coffee Company

In Downtown Plano’s new quaint coffee shop, you can order a nice cup of coffee, lunch, and grab a slice of homemade cake while lunching with a friend or over a business meeting. Some of the cakes in their repertoire are Italian Cream (most popular), Strawberry Shortcake, Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Birthday Cake, Coconut Cake, and Chocolate Cake with cookie dough icing. Their selection changes daily.

Fleming’s Steakhouse: Carrot Cake
Mignon: White Chocolate & Cinnamon Crème Brûlée
