We scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream… and cake, cookies, pies, and jello. Though many may say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, we believe it’s actually dessert that rocks the top spot. Why? Well, eggs can’t put a smile on your face quite like a milkshake can. Here are some of the most outrageous desserts you can get in Calgary!
Tacos and ice cream. Could it get any better than that? The answer is yes, apparently, it can. Not to be dramatic, but Calgary’s newest Mexican street food joint, Canelo’s, has created dessert hybrids so uniquely tasty you may not look at food the same way – ever again.
Where: 3007 26 Ave SW, Calgary
Go big and go home, with a one-of-a-kind cake from Sunnyside’s new-(ish) Holy Cow, an original dessert spot that does ‘commemorative’ differently. From pints of the good stuff to floats and warm pastries, these guys are kind of experts in everyday craving satisfaction, but it’s their cakes that stand out as the star of their menu.
Where: 938 – 2nd Avenue NW, Calgary

Bigger doesn’t always mean that it’s going to be better! At the Chocolate Lab, their treats may be small, but man do they pack a punch… that’s if you choose to actually eat them. They’re almost too pretty to pop in your mouth if we’re being honest.

At Uzu Taiyaki you’ll have the ultimate ice-cream experience. We promise you won’t find anything like this anywhere else in Calgary.

So you can take a quaint stroll with your tasty treat.

Jello doesn’t get enough hype. It’s delicious, fun, and if done right can actually look like a freaking masterpiece. The folks at Jellicious do things differently, making flowers, globes, and literal art out of a jiggly, tasty medium.
