Ah, dessert, one of the world’s oldest temptation. Decadent and guilty as it may be, I follow Erma Bombeck’s advice, “Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the ‘Titanic’ who waved off the dessert cart.”
So here are the five best dessert spots in Perth for your enjoyment. Carpe diem!
- Jersey Jack
22 Preston Street, Como
A Como institution, this gelato parlour is a fresh air in the summer. Come during the weekend and try out their special durian gelato!
- Baked 180
6/1 Tonkin Place, Girrawheen | http://www.baked180.com.au/
This cupcakery has perfected its concoction to a tee. With unique flavours such as Coca Cola, Pink Lemonade, and Almond and Rose, you will be spoiled for choice here.
- The Trustee Bar & Bistro
133 St Georges Terrace, Perth | http://www.thetrustee.com.au
Trustee’s 5-course Dessert Degustation, featuring “seasonal sugar extravaganza”, should not be missed. If it sounds a bit too much for you (it shouldn’t!), opt for the exquisite Snickers Bar ice cream.
- Brooklyn Lounge
14/22 St Quentin Ave, Claremont | http://www.brooklynlounge.com.au/
Mainly known as North American-style diner, Brooklyn Lounge is also famous for its S’mores, which is a chocolate chip cookie sandwich with Nutella and marshmallow. Don’t forget to also taste the creamy NY Cheesecake!
- Whisk Creamery
151 Rokeby Road, Subiaco | http://www.whiskcreamery.com.au
Aside from the traditional range of Italian gelato, Whisk also offers gelato cakes, taiyakis, ice cream cronut sandwiches and other special menus (such as the Lamington Cake Stecco Gelato above!).
