This is one of the newest ice cream shops in Dallas. As soon as Aqua S opened its doors, it quickly grew fame because of its Instagrammable desserts.
Aqua S serves colorful soft-serve ice cream that can be loaded with fairy floss (cotton candy), sweet popcorn, pop rocks, toasted marshmallows, and sprinkles.
In addition to its fun toppings, Aqua S creates over 100 delicious flavors. The flavors rotate every two weeks with the exception of the signature flavor, sea salt. This flavor is always combined with the two other rotating flavors for an unbelievable combination.
Instagrammable Dessert to Order: Sea Salt with combo of choice topped with Fairy Floss, Pop Rocks, and a Toasted Marshmallow.
Churros + ice cream = one of the most Instagrammable desserts in Dallas! Churroholic is easily one of the coolest restaurant concepts in the city because it shares its location with its parent company, Hiccups. Under one roof, you can order Asian-fusion entrees and finish with Spanish churros.
At Churroholic, you can enjoy a warm, crispy churro with a milkshake, horchata drink, ice cream, or turn it into a churro sundae. The options are almost endless with different pairings and flavors.
You can order the original churro or aim for something Instagrammable such as Matcha & Pebbles, Chocolate & Sprinkles, or Cookies & Cream.
Instagrammable Dessert to Order: Matcha & Pebbles Churro Loop with Vanilla Ice Cream.
Locations: Dallas, The Colony, Las Colinas, and Southlake
In addition to being one of the best ice cream shops in Dallas, Creamistry also has one of the most Instagrammable desserts in Dallas. Moreover, the entire experience at Creamistry is Instagrammable.
Creamistry makes ice cream to order using fresh ingredients and liquid nitrogen. As soon as you walk into a Creamistry location, you feel like you are in a fun science classroom because the liquid nitrogen is creating “smoke” throughout the shop.
You can order ice cream in a bowl, but the most Instagrammable desserts are the signature creations and giant ice cream sandwiches. A signature creation is basically a fancy ice cream sundae with different toppings and sauces. For the ice cream sandwiches, you choose your ice cream flavor and sandwich it between either a Fruity Pebble Krispie Treat or a rich chocolate brownie…yum!
Instagrammable Dessert to Order: Matcha & Pebbles Churro Loop with Vanilla Ice Cream.
Earnest Donuts has some of the best donuts in Dallas because of its delicious flavors and unique custom designs. The custom donut designs are absolutely amazing. From company logos to custom letters, pizza, sushi, and more.
Yes, Earnest Donuts creates donuts that look exactly like pizza and sushi! In fact, if you didn’t know any better, you would never think the pizza and sushi were even donuts! You can order donut pizza with “cheese, pepperoni, and black olives”. For the donut sushi, you can order “rolls” that look like a salmon and raw fish (that is actually a Swedish fish candy).
I have also seen other unique donut creations such as pineapples, watermelon slices, lobsters, dinosaurs, fish, champagne, and much more. Needless to say, this is why Earnest Donuts has some of the most Instagrammable desserts in Dallas. The donuts always look too good to eat!
Instagrammable Dessert to Order: a special custom order for your next party! Or the too pretty to eat sushi and pizza donuts.
Locations: Dallas, Plano, and Richardson
Another great place to get donuts and Instagrammable desserts in Dallas is at Fat Straws Bubble Tea. Of course, Fat Straws Bubble Tea is known for its delicious drinks but they are also known for the unique Mochi donuts (also referred to as Chewy Puffs).
The Chewy Puffs are Japanese-style donuts made with mochi flour. The consistency of the donuts is not like the traditional American donut. Chewy Puffs are soft, airy, chewy, and slightly bouncy in texture. What makes these donuts instagrammable is its fun colors and structure.
There are several different flavors of Chewy Puffs such as Matcha, Black Sesame, Passion Fruit, Strawberry, Fruity Pebbles, and more. Every flavor has a beautiful color of icing that makes the donuts “pop”. Additionally, the structure of the donut is 8 dough balls connected in one circle. So you can easily tear and enjoy each dough ball individually.
Instagrammable Dessert to Order: the Fruity Pebbles, Passion Fruit, Blueberry, and Strawberry Chewy Puffs.
Iota Brew Cafe is a Korean cafe specializing in creating the next food trend, Instagrammable desserts, Korean street food, coffee, and tea. The menu is vast and what I love most about this eatery is that half the menu features something sweet!
From soft-serve ice cream topped with cereal to colorful crepe cakes, macaron ice cream sandwiches, fluffy Japanese souffle cheesecakes, mochi waffles, and more. Iota Brew Cafe is the place to be when you have a sweet tooth.
You cannot go wrong with anything you order, but the fan-favorite is the crepe cakes. A crepe cake is several layers of paper-thin crepes stacked high with an even layer of mascarpone whipped cream. The result is stunning because you can see every single perfect layer.
Instagrammable Dessert to Order: the Unicorn (Rainbow) Crepe Cake – by far one of the most Instagrammable desserts in Dallas.
You might have seen this eatery showcase their delicious and crispy Belgian waffles on ABC’s hit show, Shark Tank. After television success, Press Waffle Co. has been creating some of the best waffles in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex. Whether you want a savory or sweet waffle, you can enjoy it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert.
The authentic Belgian waffles are handcrafted in the shops every day from a dough (not a traditional American batter). In addition to the dough, the waffles are special and authentic to Belgium because of the Belgium pearl sugar. This specific ingredient creates a crunchy caramelized sugar coating on the waffles, so every bite has this unbelievable sweet crunch.
Instagrammable Dessert to Order: the #1 seller – The House, made with strawberries, Nutella, cookie butter, and whipped cream.
Sno Tea Dessert Bar is another eatery serving delicious and unique waffles in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex. They serve waffle pops!
These waffle pops taste just as good as they look (if not better). The waffle pops come out nicely warm, have a crisp texture on the outside, and are quite fluffy on the inside. You can order freshly made waffles on a popsicle stick covered in Oreos, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Fruity Pebbles, rainbow sprinkles, chocolate chips, or M&Ms.
In addition to waffle pops, Sno Tea Dessert Bar also serves shaved ice, milk tea floats, slushies, sweet crepes, and more. Order one or order them all, Sno Tea Dessert Bar wants you to treat yo’self!
Instagrammable Dessert to Order: Rainbow Sprinkles and Cinnamon Toast Crunch Waffle Pops!
Sweet Daze Dessert Bar is a dessert shop specializing in making several different types of Instagrammable desserts in Dallas. From colorful soft-serve ice cream to galaxy glazed donuts and cheesecake, cereal pops, dessert bars, vibrant lemonades, and more.
One of the most popular things to order at Sweet Daze lemonade with a slice of cheesecake or the cake of the day stacked on top. This combination is their most showcased dessert on their Instagram account. Rightfully so, the fresh lemonades are vibrant in color and the cake/cheesecake slices are beautifully decorated.
The glazed galaxy is one of Sweet Daze’s signature decorations, but I have also seen a rainbow of colors, a unicorn, painted edible gold, and seasonal celebrations. The cake slices are only served on the weekends and the flavors and design always change. So I recommend calling the dessert shop ahead of time.
Instagrammable Dessert to Order: honestly everything is delicious and Instagrammable, but the different cake slices on the weekend are my favorite.
Wave Bowl is a hidden gem in Dallas/Ft. Worth creating some of the best Korean cuisine. The focus of the Wave Bowl is bi bim bop bowls and honey toast.
Bi bim bop (BBBop) is a Korean cuisine that combines rice, vegetables, eggs, meat, red chili pepper paste, and a variety of toppings inside a bowl. The result is a pack of flavor, texture, and pure deliciousness. Though the BBBOP is amazing, the true star I want to focus on is the Honey Toast.
Honey Toast is a Japanese dessert made from a thick piece of caramelized bread served with butter, honey, ice cream, fruits, and other sweet toppings. The caramelization on the bread gives the toast a beautiful crisp texture with a subtle sweetness. The addition of honey drizzled on top and a scoop of ice cream elevates the entire dessert into sweet bliss.
Wave Bowl has several different flavors of Honey Toast to choose from each offering its own additional sweetness. There is Vanilla Ice Cream (original), Snow White Milk Cream, Tiramisu, Nutella Banana Caramel, Tempura Strawberry Cheesecake, and Creme Brûlée.
Instagrammable Dessert to Order: honestly, any flavor of Honey Toast is Instagram-worthy, however the original is absolutely perfect.
One of the most Instagrammable desserts in Dallas is a custom-designed giant cookie cake from Whimsy Cookie Company. The cookie cakes are so beautifully decorated you won’t want to take a bite, but trust me, you want to. The cookie cakes are loaded with chocolate chips and baked to perfection.
Side note: did you know that Adam had a giant cookie cake as his groom’s cake for our wedding?!? It was decorated with the St. Louis Blues hockey logo.
You can ask the decorators to create any design you want, but two popular cookie cake creations include watermelon slices and pizza slices. Both of these designs look so real you would never think it was a cookie! Moreover, Whimsy Cookie Company’s cookie cakes are the perfect dessert to celebrate any occasion.
In addition to giant cookie cakes, Whimsy Cookie Company also creates individual decorated sugar cookies, cookie sandwiches, gooey butter cookies, and more.
Instagrammable Dessert to Order: a cookie cake decorated as watermelon or pizza slices.
