TOP DESSERTS IN FLA

As promised...here's 3 from me...what makes your sweet tooth smile?

1. Chocolate Fondue - News Cafe, South Beach. It's the bomb!

2. Tiramisu - Osteria del Teatro, South Beach. You can't miss it upon entering the place!

3. Cheese cakes - Nexxt, South Beach. CCF ain't got nothin' on this joint!

  1. 1. Ice Cream - Jaxson's, Dania Beach. Banana and crunchy peanut butter flavors still fab.
    2. Profiteroles - Manhattan Bakery, Sunny Isles Bch. All their baked goods are wonderful.
    3. Upside-down apple pie -- McCormick & Schmick, Boca Raton. With macadamia nuts and caramel in the crust. yum! I order it for dinner! (it's the newest location for this small chain)

    1. Hands down - Tres Leches with cuban coffee at Versailles, Miami and I second the vote for ice cream at Jaxson's (any flavor will do with a side car of chocolate sauce).

      1. Strawberry Shortcake from the Plant City strawberry festival;
        Key Lime Pie from just about anywhere in Key West (why does it always taste better there?);
        Flan from the 100-year-old Columbia restaurant in Tampa with a steaming side of cafe con leche.

          TG you should try the Key Lime Pie at the 15th St Fisheries in FTL. It's got an Oreo cookie crust which sounds wierd...and it is...in a good way! Their's and Joe's take the key lime cake here on the southside of the penninsula.

        2. My #1 and #2 and #3 - the white chocolate bread pudding with berries at Canyon in Fort Lauderdale!! Out of this world!!
