Coming from personal experience, the phone ALWAYS eats first – AKA my camera roll is comprised of 90% food, 5% selfies, and 5% cute puppies. There’s just something about looking back at your delicious adventures that makes you feel some type of way. So I’m always on the lookout for trendy, edible spots I can snag an artsy pic at. I mean, you gotta show off to your Snapchat and Instagram followers that you’ve been eating gooooood!
The First Edition of Phone Eats First is dedicated to all my fellow sugar addicts. We’re gonna start with all the best Dallas desserts that are just as sweet and they are aesthetically pleasing. Everything here is bigger and better, and for good reason. With a variety of neighborhoods filled with different cultures and people, you’re bound to find a culinary gem wherever you step foot! It was an extremely difficult task to narrow down this list (but I somehow managed, phew!)
Joy Macarons (@joymacarons) will give you that little taste of Paris with their freshly made gourmet macarons and macaron ice cream sandwiches. With 3 locations in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, this fun and flirty dessert shop will not disappoint.
BAKED by Toni Rivard – Creme de la Cookie is an upscale bakery in University Park that is a dessert lovers dream. Known for their delicious and creative cake balls and decadent milkshakes – All the fun colors and flavors will aesthetically please your feed, blast your taste buds and not to mention, give you a HUGE sugar high!
Milk • Cream (@themilkncream) lets you customize an ice cream sandwich to match the flow of your feed while satisfying that sweet tooth of yours. “Food too pretty to eat” may not be the case for these treats, because you won’t be able to resist the mixture of the soft and chewy doughnut and the variety of flavors and toppings of ice cream to choose from (hard to believe, I know…)
Sweet Daze (@sweetdazetx) is a dessert bar that serves anything and everything from donuts, cake, macarons, and ice cream. Their Instagram is too good not take a while and stalk (*Disclaimer: do not stalk and scroll on an empty stomach.)
Nothing is better than having a refreshing treat on days where this Texas heat really gets the best of you. Berrynaked (@berrynakedpops) want you to “come and indulge” in their healthy, dessert alternative with a huge selection of flavors and colors. If this really is a “guilt-free” dessert, count me in!
Bird Bakery (@birdbakery) is my go-to stop for my sweet tooth fix. Founded by #couplegoals, Elizabeth Chambers and her hubby Armie Hammer, this Highland Park Village bakery pride themselves on their freshly baked, all from scratch goodies that will NOT disappoint!! They make their treats fun, colorful, and delicious which makes it almost too pretty to eat…I said almost!
Glazed Donut Works (@glazeddonutworks) is unlike any other donut shop we’ve come across. I mean… Handcrafted donuts for days and for basically every occasion! From the infamous bacon maple flavor to other eccentric flavors you don’t find anywhere else. You really can’t go wrong and why not get a dozen and take the sweetest picture ever!
Stay sweet my fellow sugar addicts!!
