Ice Cream Desserts in Orlando

Krungthep Tea Time: Brick Toast & High Hat

This Winter Park tea bar highlights deconstructed Thai dishes to enjoy with a lengthy list of teas that are pleasing to the eye and belly. While the name may not suggest decadent desserts, digging into one of the Brick Toast or High Hat delicacies will prove otherwise. Dive into the Sleeping Beauty Brick Toast consisting of organic honey, Nutella, banana, and vanilla ice cream. Or maybe the Strawberry Cheesecake High Hat with its premium vanilla bean ice cream, cheesecake, strawberry, crushed peanuts, raspberry syrup, Ghirardelli white chocolate syrup and a waffle cone are more your speed. Either way, your sugar craving will be satisfied.

Their grandiose milkshakes are served in large mason jar-like containers and topped with whipped cream, crushed candies, brownies, and even whole cupcakes. Red Velvet, Marshmallow Crisp, Key Lime Pie, and Chocolate x 5 are just a few of the different flavors to choose from.

Tip – Keep an eye out for seasonal flavors and a few dairy-free options too.

Planet Hollywood Observatory: Cosmic Cotton Candy Milkshake

Planet Hollywood Observatory is a fun spot at Disney Springs. The atmosphere is reason enough to visit (who doesn’t love it when the entire restaurant spontaneously and simultaneously breaks into song?!) but the desserts are the icing on the cake. The Cosmic Cotton Candy milkshake is an out-of-this-world concoction adorned with candy, cotton candy, and a lollipop. For more dessert fun, test your foodie knowledge and guess 12 unique mystery ice cream and gelato flavors correctly to win a prize. Try one of the out-of-this-world Star Jars or marvel at the Planet Meltdown as a chocolate sphere is melted tableside by hot chocolate sauce to expose a double chocolate fudge cake.

Coca-Cola Store Orlando – Float Flight

A stop at this All-American store’s rooftop beverage bar at Disney Springs is a fun way to cool down on a hot day. You and your honey will enjoy sharing sixteen Coca-Cola beverages from around the world, each with one scoop of vanilla ice cream. At around $10 per tray, this is an affordable option to spend time out while curbing those sweet cravings.

ICE & BITES CAFÉ – TAIYAKI

Step out of the hot Florida sun and into a Korean oasis to quench your sugary appetite. With fresh ingredients purchased from local markets and recipes created on-site, Ice & Bites Café offers a truly unique experience. The Taiyaki is just as mouth-watering as it is eye-pleasing. Choose your ice cream flavor, add 2 toppings, and 1 sauce, and savor your creation served in a fish-shaped waffle cone. Yum-O!

NEW Dessert at Disney Springs

If you like an extra pick-me-up with your dessert then head to Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant at Disney Springs. In June, they are debuting The Gobsmacked, a triple Irish coffee dessert with three decadent layers of Irish coffee-flavored goodness. It's fantastic!

Chocolate Desserts in Orlando

Editor's pick: Must do restaurant for dessert in Orlando, Dolce Thornton Park

NEW to the Thornton Park scene is Dolce. This modern date night spot turns out one incredible dessert after another. Whether you choose to soak up the Thorntorn Park vibes on the outdoor patio, or cozy up at the bright white bar, Dolce Thornton Park will make for a memorable night.

The mouthwatering desserts can be hard to choose from, like the Horsefeathers Apple Crisp Goblet with juicy apple strudel filling served warm with graham cracker crust crumbles, then topped with salted caramel gelato and whipped cream and more graham cracker crumbles. Cheesecake lovers have got to try the Bees Knees Cheesecake & Waffle Cone, a waffle cone stuffed with pieces of NY cheesecake and turtle brownie topped with whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce.

Fun date idea: Order the Crepe Platter! Build your own crepes together with  8 mini crepes served on a platter with 6 different toppings. How fun would it be to design your own crepes on a date?

The ultimate chocolate dessert in Orlando is the Chocolate Valentino Indulgence.

Chocolate Valentino Indulgence at Dolce Thornton Park

Rich chocolate cake with a chocolate mousse-filled dome on top is served tableside with hot chocolate fudge syrup and strawberries with raspberry syrup and whipped cream on top to make the Chocolate Valentino Indulgence a date-worthy dessert at Dolce Thornton Park. It is one of many mind-blowing desserts that are just so good here. Dolce Thornton Park offers brunch all day, every day and with $15 bottomless mimosas every day. Between incredible desserts and brunch plates that will satisfy, Dolce is a must-do date night restaurant.

Tableside S'Mores at Bigfire Universal Orlando

We love the variety of restaurants at Universal Orlando that are perfect for date night. And one of our top picks is Bigfire at CityWalk. Even if you just head here for drinks and dessert, the tableside s'mores are sure to be a memorable date night. The variety of fixings to make your s'mores unique will make it fun for you to get creative and try each other's creations. And with the unmistakable energy of CityWalk, this experience is one of the best desserts in Orlando.

Soco Thornton Park – Potato Chip Crusted Chocolate Cake

Southern hospitality meets contemporary cuisine at SOCO in the Thornton Park District. Bourbon Banana Pudding, S’more Bread Pudding, and Chef’s Selection of Artisanal Cheeses are just a few of the options you will find highlighted on the dessert menu. Awaken your senses with the Potato Chip Crusted Chocolate Cake – chocolate cake with potato chips sprinkled on top plus peanut brittle and salted caramel scattered around.

Hash House a Go Go – Andy's Famous Bread Pudding

Take your everyday comfort food and add a side of unusual to understand Hash House’s “twisted farm food” motto. The fun menu keeps the conversation interesting and your tongue impressed. Practically every dish is over the top, but plunge your fork into one of their unique sweets like Andy’s Famous Bread Pudding and leave your mouth wowed.

Uncle Julio's: Chocolate Piñata

An epicurean favorite on I-Drive, Uncle Julio's adds a scratch kitchen slant to Mexican fare. We loved the fajitas and the guacamole (which is prepared tableside) but the Chocolate Piñata is one of the wildest desserts in Orlando. Servers deliver a giant, suspended chocolate ball on a huge wooden tray and then the fun begins. Diners pick up sticks and whack away at their sweet orb until BOOM… the treasures inside drop.  What's left is a beautiful mess of broken chocolate, churros, strawberries, and pineapple ready to dip in house-made whip cream, caramel and strawberries sauce. Pretty ridiculously awesome!
