Best Desserts of CNY: Sugar & Co.

IMG_7657.JPG.jpeg

Lemon meringue bar, flourless chocolate cake, and cookie-dough brownie layered dessert. Just a little taste of what Sugar & Co has to offer. The vibes are great โ€” Modern upbeat music, especially attractive to a younger age group. Most dates these days are dinner and a movie, but I find this to be a more UNpopular way to get to know someone without the typical restaurant meal. PLUS there is an exquisite wine list, and we all know you canโ€™t go wrong with wine. Appetizers & desserts are what they serve up at this prime downtown location in Syracuse, NY.

The pastry chef is definitely not one to be over looked. This well-known artistic creator is what separates Sugar & Co. from the rest. She goes by the name โ€˜the little cake artistโ€™ on Instagram. Her talent is very evident โ€” not just in the quality of the desserts, but the beautifully crafted presentation as well. Probably the reason she has gained 41k followers and counting! Wow, AMAZING. The service goes above and beyond expectations. I had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners who was working at the time and she just so happened to have the same name as me. Obviously the reason why they made the list. Kidding, the bar is perfectly stunning. I never would have known she was the owner had I not asked. GO see why they are one of THE best dessert places in CNY. Be sure to follow their sweet journey on Instagram.ย Did you my last dessert post?! Here it is “Best Desserts of CNY: The Sweet Praxis.”

Best Desserts of CNY: The Sweet Praxis

6241731680_IMG_1323.jpg

Everything about this downtown Cuse spot is perfection. The moment you walk in, you know it’s something special. It is everything you would expect from a modern downtown cafe, and then some โ€” if it can be put in any category. Everything about this place is beautiful. The simple, yet chic dรฉcor along with the display of sweets make you want to say โ€œIโ€™ll have one of everything please.โ€ Always met with freshly made desserts and a variety of unique options daily. I sampled a cinnamon scone, a minty macaron, and a lemon-rose water donut topped with raspberry sugar. DIABEETUS, right? Not exactly โ€” They actually offer healthier menu options such as porridge, yogurt and granola, soups, and more. If you go here and order yogurt though, you are my hero. LOL. I also could not leave without first trying the quiche. They offer a different intriguing quiche combination every day. I sampled the broccoli and kale quiche. SOO tasty. It is no surprise they made the list! If you missed the last post “Best Desserts of CNY: Dani’s Dessert & Wine Bar,” be sure to check it out.
