SEA: Best Desserts?

Hello,

My friend I are trying to find restaurants with excellent desserts. I particularly like homemade ice creams, and am a big advocate of everything made with organic/local/sustainable ingredients. I'm new here, so I am still working on my list and am thinking of trying:

Tilth
Cafe Juanita
Sitka and Spruce
Zoe
Stumbling Goat Bistro

How are desserts at these places? Any others I should try?

Thanks!

  1. Tamarind Tree, on Jackson. A whole different thing, but scrumptious.

    1. not local (we don't grow chocolate or almonds here), but the best dessert in town is at Tango and it's called El Diablo. Chocolate, chile, caramel, meringue, almonds.

      Cafe Juanita had my second favorite restaurant dessert this past summer--a cherry float, which was absolutely scrumptious, while being light and refreshing after a big meal. Unfortunately, not now available. And their gelatos and sorbets there are very good. We had an apricot gelato there that was great! Again, I'm sure it's very seasonal.

        That was my reply as well. What a fantastic dessert.

        1. Not a restaurant, but since you mentioned ice cream - Theno's Dairy in Woodinville sells Vivian's Pride ice cream which is made there. The cantaloupe ice cream they have in the summer is to die for.

          1. I think the chocolate madeleines at Lark are heavenly. I also see they have a housemade malt ice cream on their menu.

            And count me amony the fans of Tango's El Diablo.

              Probably one of my favorite desserts in a long while was the date cake I had at Lark last week. A small, moist spice cake with date essence, but no chewy date pieces, a semi-sweet caramel sauce, a few pine nuts and a scoop of olive oil gelato on the side. Perfumed, north african-inspired, amazing. We ordered a second.
