Although this locally loved bakery doesn’t have a dessert menu online, Instagrammers love to show off the sweet treats. This bakery offers festive scratch-made cakes to pick up for your special event, including weddings and birthdays. Or, feel free to snag a special cake for two, to enjoy on a cuddly weekend evening!

il Naso

This Italian eatery and wine bar gets rave reviews on Facebook for its decadent Dark Chocolate Bread Pudding with salted caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. Looking for something lighter? Explore the Vanilla Lemon Cheesecake Mousse, Grilled Half Peach or Honey Comb Toffee served with fresh fruit on the dessert menu. Or, linger over a glass of dessert wine. We recommend the 2014 Michele Chiarlo “Nivole” Moscato D’ Asti from Piedmont and the Don Pedro Ximenez from Spain.

Michel’s Christiania

Known as “The Christy” to locals, this French restaurant and Olympic Bar know how to end a dinner perfectly. Their profiteroles are sure to make any dessert lover swoon. The airy pastry is filled with rich choux à la crème before being garnished with chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and fresh fruit! Oh la la!


Tucked away in Ketchum, this restaurant offers a huge variety of homemade desserts with a Hispanic influence. Browse the cookies, cupcakes, tarts, eclairs, cakes, pies, cheesecakes and so much more. They even cater to special dietary requirements, including Paleo.
