Whether it’s the vacation mindset, or the heat of the day, there’s just something about summer that makes us crave a little dessert. As summer marches into August and the lazy dog days of summer begin to slip away, there’s still time to savor the last tastes of the season, literally and figuratively. Here are our top five ways to end summer on a sweet note.
Key Lime Pie at Don’t Look Back: Tangy, creamy, and oh so refreshing – Key Lime Pie is a quintessential summertime treat.
Anything at Gelati Celesti: With 24 house favorites as well as a selection of additional flavors that rotate through their five stores, no Richmond summer is a complete without a scoop from this local darling. Our personal favorite is the Rainbow Cookie flavor featuring Sublime Vanilla ice cream mixed with Ukrop’s Rainbow Cookies.
Banana Pudding at Hot Chick: White chocolate cream, chopped bananas, ‘nilla wafers, candied walnuts, salted caramel drizzle, and cool whip combine to create the perfect summertime treat. Pro-tip: Stop by for weekend brunch and enjoy your banana pudding atop a waffle.
Nightingale Ice Cream Sandwiches at Tazza Kitchen: Decadent blueberry lemon ice cream is sandwiched between two brown sugar cookies.
Brownie at Taste Westhampton: Classics never go out of style and the quintessential brownie, packed with extra chocolate chips, is the perfect grab-and-go addition to any summertime picnic or poolside lunch.
