Atlanta is a foodie’s paradise and if you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’ll love these places just a hop and skip away from your new Atlanta apartment. These Asia-inspired joints serve over-the-top desserts you’ll love to cool off with this summer. Here are some of our favorites.
ORANGE COFFEE BAR
This Korean coffee house is best known for its bingsu, a shaved ice dessert flavored with sweetened condensed milk with toppings like red beans, fresh fruit, and nuts. Orange Coffee Bar takes bingsu to a whole other level by serving it in a hollowed-out watermelon full of whipped cream and round balls of watermelon, a must-eat for the summertime.
SUMMER MEMORY STATION
Summer Memory Station offers a variety of delicate Japanese-inspired confections such as the chilled green tea crepe cake with just the slightest layers of cream and matcha green tea powder, and “white cloud” wafer dessert that has liquid nitrogen that gives you the illusion you’re eating a cloud as you’re relaxing on the wooden swing outside.
SNOWFLAKE TEA HOUSE
Ice cream in hollowed-out loaves of bread can be found at this Taiwanese tea house along with shaved ice in every flavor from vanilla to taro, seriously stacked sundaes topped with cookies and fresh fruit, and over 40 different kinds of iced and hot teas so you can keep it simple or go all out when keeping cool this summer.
TEA HOUSE FORMOSA
This quaint tea house has gained a reputation for its funky Taiwanese favorites like taro fries and different kinds of toast you won’t find at a typical American diner. The s’mores toast is a local favorite, made with thick bread and covered in marshmallows that are torched until golden brown and topped with chocolate sauce and graham cracker crumbs.
Boba Bee isn’t just known for their boba (bubble) tea: this cozy Asian Square mainstay uses waffles of every flavor imaginable to reign in their ice cream sundaes and the “strawberry fluffy milk” is no slouch at sweetness.
