  • The Red Coat

    All good choices, but I’ve got to add the Salted Caramel Cheesecake from Belle Cakery to this list. It’s incredible.

  • Jahadi White

    The Conehead Sundae from Friendly’s should be #1. The place has good food and ice cream.

  • Noreen Spota

    Forget your ideas about humble chocolate pudding. Whenever I have the chocolate pudding at Night Kitchen Bakery in Chestnut Hill, I feel as if I’ve died and gone to heaven.

    The Night Kitchen had a lemon pudding with fresh blueberries this summer that was unbelievably wonderful. Also their chocolate layer cake — I don’t ordinarily like frosting, but there’s a tiny bit of cinnamon in it and it’s amazing. And they’re nice.
