What are the must-have desserts in the Seattle area?

Yes, we're skipping supper so that the stomach has room for sweets. What would you recommend as the must-have desserts in the Seattle area? I want my "just desserts"!

  1. The El Diablo at Tango. The lemon sour cream pie at B&O. Some rave about Tom Douglas' triple coconut cream pie.

      TD's coconut cream pie is good, but the one at Seastar is better, imo.

    2. El Diablo at Tango, the Lunar Orbiter at Sky City @ the Space Needle (for its historic and novelty value only),Bananas Dulce at Cactus.

        We had the Lunar Orbiter today. It was ... ice cream.

          See "for historic and novelty value only"'s ice cream that comes in a cloud of dry ice fog!

      2. Maybe not a dessert, but the frosted cake donuts at Top Pot are the best on the planet!

        1. The fresh, hot beignets with salted caramel and Macallan 12 butterscotch at RN74 get my vote. As does the butterscotch budino at the Pink Door.

              The what, at the where-now? Excuse me, but I need to go find my car keys. That sounds incredible.

            2. Being an ice cream fan, my #1 would be a ferry ride over to Bainbridge for ice cream at Mora. YUM.
