I don’t know about you, but I have a huge sweet tooth. Dessert is my favorite meal. Give me the cupcakes. Give me the cookies. I’m all there.
In the Nutmeg state, there are so many great places that you can satisfy your sweet tooth. Here are some of my favorite places to go — from dairy free ice cream to cookies.
Sugar Bakery: I have been a frequent customer of the cupcake truck, which has all of their cupcakes in stock for years. It was announced recently that the cupcake truck will no longer be driving around New Haven county. Despite that, their store in East Haven still remains open. And, they have a variety of cupcakes. My favorite ones are the Reese’s Riot, the Unicorn Poop, Simply Vanilla, and Confetti Dip.
Good Morning Cupcake: This is a new place on my list, but definitely one I’ll be going to time and time again. They are located in Milford, and their mini cupcakes definitely pack a punch. Now, their menu is really cool. Some of my favorites include: the salted caramel cupcake, and the all vanilla. In addition to cupcakes, they also have mini donuts and cookies.
Donut Crazy: There are several locations across the state. This is my favorite place to go to whenever I am in the mood to treat myself to a great donut. Now, their donuts are insane. They have Nutella flavors, they have cookie flavors, and they have the classic ones of course. Some of my favorites include: the s’mores, the cereal and the cookie dough.
Neil’s Donuts: Located in Wallingford, these donuts are amazing. I’ve never visited their shop, but I’ve had their donuts through a few local retailers. And, you’ve never had a donut until you’ve had one of these. In addition to the a huge variety of donuts, you can get coffee, sandwiches, and so much more.
Lucibello’s Italian Pastry Shop: I’m Italian and I love some good old Italian pastry. Located in New Haven, this is the place to go to if you’re in the mood for a good old fashioned pastry. They have cannolis, pasiticiotti and so much more.
Sweet Claudes: I’m going to end off with my favorite place to get ice cream. Sweet Claude’s is located on Route Ten in Cheshire. What makes them my favorite place is their option of tofutti. Tofutti, if you don’t already know, is a dairy free dessert. This place has special meaning for me, as it’s a place that my mom and I used to go to together. While they have a great variety of dairy free options, they do have a huge selection of dairy flavors as well.
