Krungthep Tea Time, Winter Park

The unique treat called “brick toast”, a sugary merging of buttered bread, ice cream and sweet syrups, is a go-to dessert in Japan, Southeast Asia and Taiwan. Krungthep offers several versions, including our cover delight, Ferrero Choco, with fudge brownie gelato, chocolate syrup, and chunks of hazelnut Ferraro candy. facebook.com/krungthepteatime

Rome’s Flavours, Winter Park

Watching chef Pino Miraglia create silken ribbons of fettucini and pappardelle at the counter of his Winter Park eatery, one can only marvel at his quiet expertise. But the great pasta and rustic pizzas are just a prelude to the house-made gelatos, which feature truly Italian flavors like stracciatella and zabaglione, and a pistachio unlike anything you’ll find outside Rome itself. On Facebook, search for Rome’s Flavours.

Noodles and Rice Café, Mills 50 District

Part of the new generation of hip Asian restaurants, N&R specializes in several cooked-at-table mini hot pot offerings. But the sweet side is well served by bubble teas, fruit-topped waffles, and the newest national craze, shaved snow, fluffy ice drenched with fruit syrups and sundae toppings. noodlesandricecafe.com

Hamilton’s Kitchen at The Alfond Inn, Winter Park

Chef Mark Kusche has cooked from Germany to London, to the Mar-a-Lago Club, to his successful kitchen in Winter Park. His elegantly simple ricotta lemon cheesecake takes expertise to create, and he does it beautifully. thealfondinn.com/dining/hamiltons_kitchen

The Osprey Tavern, Baldwin Park

Pastry Chef Kristy Carlucci honed her craft at Cask & Larder before taking her talents to new heights at Osprey. Creations like an artistically chaotic take on s’mores appear on the menu, but a constant high point is the assortment of inventive house-made ice creams. ospreytavern.com

Bosphorus Turkish Cuisine, Winter Park

Order the meze platter and a glass of wine for a delightful, shareable meal, then top it off with some remarkably satisfying desserts. Peterbrooke chocolate and Turkish coffee mouse, creamy sutlac rice pudding, or our favorite, the 50-layered pistachio baklava. bosphorousrestaurant.com

Hollywood Brown Derby, Disney’s Hollywood Studios

The Hollywood heyday-themed Brown Derby is as elegant as it is continually booked, serving classic entrees finished with a choose-your-own trio of desserts. We’d pick three plates of the legendary grapefruit cake. disneyworld.disney.go.com/dining/hollywood-studios/hollywood-brown-derby

Emeril’s Orlando, Universal CityWalk 

Banana Cream Pie: What might be a church supper staple anywhere else is, under the tutelage of Chef Lagasse, a lesson in silky and firm pastry custard, perfect banana selection and timing. emerilsrestaurants.com

Goblin Market, Mount Dora

For 18 years, the folks at the Goblin Market have made a culinary haven of this charming off-the-main-drag establishment. Sit in the garden and experience a decidedly non-Florida atmosphere while enjoying a piece of the standout strawberry balsamic cheesecake. thegoblinmarketrestaurant.com

Royal Indian Cuisine, Casselberry

Depending on the regional cuisine, Indian menus go from savory mild to blisteringly spicy. But they usually agree on the final course of rich desserts of sugar, honey and dairy. The carrot pudding called gajar halwa found at Royal Indian is a sweet delight. royalindianorlando.com
