Nothing Bundt Cakes
2520 W. Memorial
Mini-anything is really hard to stop eating. When it’s a delicious bundtini, it’s impossible to eat only one. Why? Because it’s a two-bite-sized Bundt cake with frosting. If you try nothing else here, check out the red velvet and lemon. Or opt for the featured flavor of August and September: white chocolate blueberry.

The Delta Cafe

It has a full menu of food, but this is a place where you don’t just save room for dessert — you come for the dessert.

Of course you can (and should) get those cobblers with ice cream.
