October 11th, 2018 by

Whether you love a frozen dessert like gelato or something chocolatey and decadent such as gooey cake, there are plenty of places to get desserts in the greater Wilson and Raleigh area to please your sweet tooth. Here are some of the best dessert restaurants in the area to choose from. It can be difficult to choose just one dessert place.

1. Lucettegrace

Lucettegrace is a delicious bakery at 235 S. Salisbury St. Whether you get a fresh-made pastry to go with your cup of coffee or tea, or opt for something more decadent like the bourbon pecan pie croissant or macaron ice cream sandwich, Lucettegrace is sure to have what you’re craving. The food is plated beautifully and looks great in photos, so you’ll want to share mouth-watering pictures of your favorites on social media. The bakery is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Plan to arrive early before your desired treat is sold out.

2. Hayes Barton Café & Dessertery

Located at 2000 Fairview Road, Hayes Barton Café & Dessertery is an American-style restaurant that happens to serve delicious handmade desserts. After you enjoy a savory slice of meatloaf or chicken pot pie, ask for a slice of coconut or peanut butter brownie cake. Cake flavors vary regularly, but all are equally decadent and noteworthy. Although the restaurant is closed on Sundays and Mondays, it is open for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and again at 6 p.m. from Wednesday through Saturday for dinner.

3. Slice Pie Company

While technically in Raleigh, the Slice Pie Company doesn’t have a location where you can stop by to pick up a pie on a whim. You’ll need to order the pie in advance by calling (919) 349-8499 during regular business hours and either pick it up or have it delivered. However, according to many customers, it is well worth the wait. The apple pie is known for its crisp, fresh apples that are less common in store-bought pies. The key lime pie has many fans for its tart and fresh flavors. The baker can even write birthday or congratulations messages, so you can buy a celebratory pie instead of a cake to mark your next big event or moment.

Dessert can turn around a bad day or provide a sweet finish to a special occasion. Whether you choose one of these restaurants or decide to bring dessert home, a tasty sweet treat is delicious no matter where it is enjoyed. There’s no reason you have to choose only one. Have a pie for your birthday or a slice of cake after dinner. After all, you only live once.
