1. Real Pie Company
We were hankering for a lighter savory option here at the shop this week, so we brought back an old favorite - our...Posted by Real Pie Company on Friday, 19 July 2019
In the US, pie is so much more than just another dessert. It is the national dessert. It is usually eaten on Thanksgiving, 4th of July and Christmas. There are many types of pies and it is safe to say that The Real Pie Company has them all!
Their menu changes frequently since they like to be creative with their recipes and many daily items are not listed on their website menu. My personal favorites are the Key Lime Pie and the Chocolate Cream Pie because of their lightness. Who doesn’t like lime and chocolate? I love to come here but you have to plan in advance because there might be a big line ahead of you since everyone wants a piece of their pies!

2. Sweet Honey Dessert
Nice and beautiful day to come out and get some durian and vanilla ice cream w/ vanilla frost!Posted by SweetHoney Dessert 杏記甜品 Sacramento on Saturday, 20 April 2019
This magical place serves Chinese desserts and it will have you asking for more. I love the fact that the establishment has the luxury of a proper restaurant but it is casual at heart. Their servers will come to your table to take your order. One little tip is to research the menu before you go since they have a big selection of desserts.
If you are feeling like you want to taste something new and you have not yet tried Chinese desserts, you have to come to this place! One of their most popular desserts is the mango pomelo sago which has an awesome texture. You can feel the mango melting in your mouth and the explosion of flavor that comes with it. You have to try it!

This is the perfect place for a romantic but casual date. They make their ice cream in small batches and you can taste the love in every bite. I love their passion fruit sorbet and their strawberry gelato but I can guarantee you will find a flavor for everyone, even the picky ones!
If you don’t, believe me, you can read their amazing reviews on Yelp. They are located in a great area where you can get your ice cream to go and explore the neighborhood. You won’t regret coming here!

4. Ginger Elizabeth
This establishment has a French vibe and their macarons will have you saying Oh la la! They are extremely tasty! They also offer lessons on how to make ice cream and French desserts like creme brulee and operas. I love their friendly staff and the personal touch you can find in every corner of their stylish store. I would definitely advise you to try their salty caramel ice cream and their macarons but the truth is you can not go wrong with any dessert here. They are all fabulous!

5. Rick's Dessert Dinner
This place is a beautiful family-owned diner that will make you feel like you are in the ‘70s. I adore the fact that they open every day and that they offer such a great variety of specialty cakes. They are also famous for their top of the line wedding cakes which are to die for, but you have to order them at least 2 months in advance. Totally worth it!
I am in love with their Apricot Almond Gateau because it is so fluffy! They also have tarts, pies, cheesecakes, and gluten-free desserts, which gives everyone in your party something sweet to enjoy while in Sacramento.
