Best Dessert In Canberra?

By TheBron 21 September 2008 29

I dont have a kitchen, and dinners out can get exxy, with entrees, mains and desserts (if you’re hungry) so my fiance and are are going to do a few “dessert dates” and see how they go.

Just wondering where you would vote the “best dessert” in Canberra.

IMHO Peppered Prawn has THE BEST sticky date I have found in Canberra so far.

What’s Your opinion?

The original post is three years old and I’m looking for help in regard to desserts! You know the situation- the restaurant is great but their desserts are boring. Main course is over and you cannot face the “cheesecake or black forest cake” option AGAIN! Where do you go in Canberra for your sugary hit of goodness that isn’t the Chocolate sundae at Maccas? Are the posts on this page still current recommendations or is there somewhere better now?

mezzalira was always a good bet for dessert – haven’t been for a while so nice to see it gets a gig from grundy above… mamma tossolini used to – or still does? – make the cakes for her son’s eponymous joint and i had the third best tiramisu i ever ate there – several times! and bernadette’s used to make a great beetroot chocoloate flourless cake that was to die for… sad.

How about a black sticky rice pudding with coconut milk at Lemon Grass Thai in Civic? The sticky rice desserts at Kopi Tiam in Manuka or Ayutthaya in Belconnen are also excellent.

The Banana Katsu at Wagamama is probably the best thing on their menu. The Ginger Room at OPH do some really nice and interesting desserts.

A friend and I always go to Zbrasserie in tuggers. they have a great selection of deserts and usually one as a special as well. the tequila orange and lemon sorbet was AMAZING!

The best dessert by far, and my partners and mine’s favourtie, is the caremelised banana and almond calzone at Lunico in Kingston. Great atmosphere, and great wait staff too!

All the deserts at Mezzalira.

I don’t get out much any more, but I have fond memories of a Frozen After Dinner Mint at Belluci’s

No no no! The “signature” After Dinner Mint used to be mind-bogglingly delicious. The last time I went to Bellucci’s it was a shocker. Read my comments on post for a recap:

I think Belluci’s in Dickson is closed for refurb. but I’d steer clear of them when they re-open.

As for desserts which are great – despite other people’s comments, the desserts in Koko Black are some of the nicest I;ve ever had (albeit quite expensive). The hot chocolate affogato and the chocolate mousse is amazing.

Ethiopia Down Under in Pearce does awesome home made icecreams, and my perennial favourite, Outsider Cafe and Gallery in Captains Flat (its 50km away, but worth the drive) has the most incredible pancake stacks, iced chocolates and berry whips. Ring ahead before making the journey.
