Ernestine Ulmer is credited with what I consider to be one of the most profound quotes to ever get thrown haphazardly around the internet: “Life is uncertain, eat dessert first.”
In Kingston, we have plenty of options to eat dessert before or after any meal, or really at any other time of the day. There are endless options of butter tarts, truffles, cupcakes, fruit arrangements (dessert can be healthy, but you can also easily put chocolate on fruit), donuts, cookies, crepes, fondue – there is a lot to choose from!
For the purpose of this poll, we’ve looked at businesses that have a strong focus on satisfying your sweet tooth, so most restaurants, regardless of how good their dessert is (I sincerely apologize to the strawberry lasagna at Wooden Heads and the quadruple chocolate cheesecake at Days on Front), are not included. The same goes for grocery stores. And although there are some truly great desserts available at some of the farmer’s markets in Kingston and various pop-up locations, we’ve opted for storefront locations for year-round availability. Lastly, ice cream stores are not included in this list, but keep your eyes here on Kingstonist for more on that in just in a few days!
So, Kingston, over to you. Because there is some diversity in the types of desserts that are offered, you can pick up to three places.
