Whether it's your favourite way to end a meal or you want to head straight for the finale, Cayman's restaurants are big hitters when it comes to desserts! Read on to find out the best places to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Life is Short. Eat the Cake.
For delicious desserts to be enjoyed alfresco whilst overlooking the water, head to Casanova to tuck into their divine Tiramisu, or Bàcaro for their light Passion Fruit Panna Cotta. Calypso Grill is famous for their Sticky Toffee Pudding and Millionaire Shortbread. For true decadence try Grand Old House for their Red Velvet Chocolate Lava Cake or The Wharf for their delightful Vanilla Crème Brûlée. Anchor & Den is known for their whimsical Mad Hatters Tea Party every Saturday, where guests can sample a rotating selection of small cakes and sweet treats. Sunday brunches are also a mecca for dessert lovers and both Seven and LUCA are known for their rows of mini-cakes, tartlets, profiteroles and much more.

Anchor & Den’s crêpe bar is open daily (7am-11am and 6pm-10pm) and offers a delicious spread of both sweet and savoury flavours, including lemon curd, Georgia peach, white chocolate Chantilly, crème fraîche and smoked salmon. Petit Paris serves up delectable authentic French crêpes with flavours ranging from lemon and sugar, to the more decadent Apple Cinnamon or Nutella Banana topped crêpes. Cayman Creperie in Bayshore Mall boasts a menu almost entirely consisting of sweet and savoury crêpes made fresh to order; the perfect indulgent dessert or savoury lunch alternative to treat yourself with!

Sprinkles, Please.
Häagen-Dazs has two locations around the Island and at each you can find a variety of sophisticated ice cream flavours made using high-quality ingredients. Dairy Queen on the George Town waterfront offers soft-serve ice cream as well as the brand’s famous Blizzard sundaes. For a trendy Italian alternative to ice cream, try Gelato & Co. Their gelato is made fresh everyday with no added colouring, flavourings or preservatives. They have over 26 flavours to choose from! Get your frozen yoghurt fix at Peachwave. Help yourself to a variety of frequently changing flavours, such as tart lemon, creamy cheesecake and red velvet cake. They also have non-dairy options. Yogurt Ur Way in Grand Harbour also offers a selection of ‘froyo’ flavours and toppings that change weekly. Listen out for the sweet sounds of the CayKool ice cream truck in your neighbourhood as it makes its way around the Island.

For guilt-free treats that still satisfy the sweet tooth, head to Island Naturals, Saucha/Conscious Café or Bread & Chocolate Vegan Bistro where you will find gluten and dairy-free options that are guaranteed to hit the spot.
