Ruby Snap

Rethink the chocolate chip cookie. Take a bite out of Ruby Snap's most popular cookie, the Vivianna, made with dark chocolate chips and mangos in a citrus dough and you'll never go back to plain ol' chocolate chip! In fact, try any of the twelve gourmet cookies and you'll never go anywhere else! Each cookie is made from the best ingredients and most of the cookies combine unique and interesting flavors that make each bite a little piece of heaven. The staff is fabulously friendly and will let you taste any cookie that catches your eye to help you choose what to buy. Not that you'll be able to choose! You can also buy frozen cookie dough to take home and enjoy later!

Mini Cupcakes

Utah's first bakery to specialize in gourmet cupcakes, Mini Cupcakes uses local ingredients, keeping your money local. The combination of those ingredients were tested over 1000 times before Mini Cupcakes were ever even sold, ensuring a delicious balance of moistness, sweetness and frosting.  The cupcakes are smaller than others, which gives you the freedom (and lack of guilt!) to try more than one flavor.  Beautifully decorated, you might think some are too pretty to eat, but go ahead and take a bite anyway.  You won't be disappointed! 

The Chocolate: A Dessert Cafe

What once was only a commercial kitchen for wedding and catering orders is now a sweet dessert cafe with many options to satisfy your cravings.  Settle into the cute atmosphere while you enjoy cake by the slice (or even an entire cake!), cupcakes, cookies, brownies, tarts and more.  Enjoy interacting with the friendly staff who really care about their product and their customers.  You can even host a party in the delightfully decorated Blue Room at The Chocolate.  Affordable packages for children's cupcake parties are available and children get to decorate their own cupcake. 

Beyond Glaze Doughnuts

Sure, doughnuts from the supermarket taste decent. But if that's the only type of doughnut you're letting yourself enjoy, you're missing out!  Beyond Glaze doughnuts are made fresh daily and feature delicious, unique combinations in the sweetest pastry form.  Try the caramel apple doughnut or the raspberry mango doughnut.  Or how about the cookies and cream doughnut or peach cobbler doughnut? There are over two dozen varieties to choose from!  Frosted with real pureed fruits, these doughnuts put your regular old supermarket doughnuts to shame.  Plus, they might be the prettiest things you've ever seen!

Gourmandise: The Bakery

Your sweet tooth has hit late at night and you find yourself rummaging through last year's Halloween candy, trying to find something that will satisfy your insatiable need for delicious dessert! You desperately want something of quality but all the bakeries are closed, so you settle for a most un-inspiring piece of petrified chocolate you know you shouldn't even ingest. Unless, of course, you know about Gourmandise which is open until 10:00 p.m. on weeknights and 11:00 p.m. on weekends! Then you can head downtown and select a most satisfying fruit tart, slice of cheesecake or delicious piece of mousse cake that will have you swooning in minutes. The bakery has been voted "Salt Lake City's Best Desserts" five years in a row and boasts the widest selection of European pastries and desserts in the area.  The ample cafe seating is a perfect setting for gathering after a movie or for hiding out in your pajamas on your late night run!
