You’ll Want To Eat Dessert First At These 9 Amazing Buffalo Restaurants
One of the best parts about being an adult is the fact that you get to make your own rules. Jump on the bed, stay up past midnight, heck – even forego flossing your teeth once in a while. But of all the grown up decisions you can make, one reigns supreme:
eat dessert first. We promise it will be totally worth it at these 9 amazing Buffalo restaurants.
1. Buffalo Chophouse (282 Franklin Street)
Buffalo Chophouse is known for their delicious steaks and impressive ambiance, but one of their best menu items is the Mile High Chocolate Cake for Two. Whether you're sharing or not, you'll definitely want to eat dessert first once you feast your eyes on this decadent dish!
2. Chef's (291 Seneca Street)
An Italian meal wouldn't be complete without a cannoli, and the cannolis from Chef's are worth the potential of ruing your appetite for. If you don't take our advice, at least do yourself a favor and take some to go!
3. Panaro's (571 Delaware Avenue)
Speaking of Italian desserts... no one does it quite like Panaro's! Along with their great lunch menu, Panaro's specializes in specialty cakes, Italian cookies, and - of course - the sponge candy cannoli! You can find these delicious desserts at their restaurant on Delaware Avenue or roaming around the Queen City on the Rolling Cannoli food truck. Trust us, you'll want to eat dessert first at this Buffalo gem.
4. SEAR (200 Delaware Avenue)
This Buffalo steakhouse is co-owned by ex-Bill Fred Jackson. Just one taste of the SEARious Sundae will make you BILLieve in love at first bite! Caramel corn and warm chocolate sauce drizzled over a warm brownie and salted caramel gelato? Definitely a reason to eat dessert first.
5. Casa Di Pizza (11 E. Mohawk Street)
Casa Di Pizza gets its stellar reputation for great pizza in Buffalo, but what you might not know is that this place also serves up a mean fried dough, along with other great dessert items. Embrace your inner rebel by eating the sweet stuff first and saving the 'za for later.
6. Hertel Ave. Poutine & Cream (1488 Hertel Avenue)
"Do you want fries with that shake?" The answer at Hertel Ave. Poutine & Cream should always be an astounding "Yes!" This eatery specializes in exactly what you would expect: poutine and ice cream. But we are of the opinion that they should be eaten in reverse order. To put it bluntly... eat dessert first. (We recommend the freak shakes 100%.)
7. Ru's Pierogi (295 Niagara Street)
What do you get when you mix pierogi with apple pie, caramel sauce, and ice cream? The ultimate excuse to eat dessert first! The apple pierogi from Ru's is incredible and totally worth indulging in. Be sure to also ask about other dessert specials available at Ru's the next time you visit. They often feature new items that don't always hit the menu boards!
8. Tappo (338 Ellicott Street)
We have three words for you: Peanut. Butter. Crunch. Tappo has several great items on their dessert menu, but this one takes the cake - no pun intended! We also suggest giving their bread pudding a try if you're into sweet stuff. It's worth every calorie.
9. Lloyd Taco Factory (1503 Hertel Avenue)
The name Lloyd is synonymous with amazing tacos in Buffalo, but that's not all this restaurant is good for! Eat dessert first and order the Hand Grenade - a homemade pie filled with seasonal fruits available all the time at Lloyd Taco Factory. In case you were wondering... the answer is yes. Bruno Mars would definitely catch this grenade for you.
