Honeycomb Creamery in Porter Square, Cambridge
In Boston, Taco Tuesday is a real thing, especially at Honeycomb Creamery in Porter Square, Cambridge! They take a waffle cone and fold it into a “taco” shell, filling it with ice cream and topping it with fudge and even recently they had a s’mores taco with marshmallow topping rolled in graham crackers. We love everything about this homemade shop including their inventive flavors and delicious waffle cones.
Chocolate Mousse in a Waffle Cone
Gate Comme De Filles in Somerville
There’s definite chocolate experts at this gourmet shop in Bow Market in Somerville. For an indulgent treat to the max, try their chocolate waffle cone filled with chocolate mousse. This creamy sweet is almost like a melted fluffy cheesecake — so pop the Zantac and indulge!
Rosebud Kitchen Diner in Davis Square, Somerville
A Somerville staple for homemade pies, Rosebud Diner wows! You can pretend that you’re here for a drink or dinner, but the truth is your belly is saving room for dessert.
The Scoop and Scootery in Arlington
Typically ice cream sundaes are served with a dainty spoon after a yummy meal. With Scoop N Scootery, you can throw caution to the wind, grab your PJs, power the TV remote, and let go at home while indulging in a delicious sundae. One of our favorites, since we love cake and ice cream, is the Fainted Pikachu. Chocolate and cake batter ice cream with a frosted red velevet core topped with brownie bites and fudge. Need we say more?

Rose Gelato Flower with Macaron
Amorino Bar in Harvard Square
On our Harvard Square Chocolate Tour, we love visiting this local outpost of the Italian ice cream store. Entrepreneur Lea who brought it to Boston is from France, but she fell in love with Harvard Square and moved here with her dog upstairs from the restaurant — she built out a very beautiful window in the Square that looks out onto Winthrop Park and is inspired by European cafes. This location is also open late at night, and their beverages including their milk shake and Italian hot chocolate are delicious as well.
Levain Bakery in Newbury Street, Boston
Their cookies are very thick and rich from this NYC outpost. You can also splurge and get delivery from Uber Eats. We really love their double chocolate cookies which are buttery, slightly crispy on the outside, gooey fudgy in the middle, and best served warm.
Donut Bread Pudding
Donut Villa Diner in Central Square, Cambridge
On our Central Square Food and Mural Arts Tour, you’ll have a chance to sink your teeth into these treats including a vegan versus non-vegan donut taste test (it’s surprising!) as well as the opportunity to take home their donut bread pudding which is as indulgent as it sounds and twice as tasty as you’d ever imagine! Visit us this Sunday by booking via our tour calendar.
Davis Square Donuts in Davis Square, Somerville
Super-size your craving! Davis Square Donuts in Somerville serves up giant donuts the size of your head! And do they know how to turn on the sweetness! Some specialty donuts they’ve served recently include a whoopie pie donut filled with sweet creamy icing, a Somerville Cream donut full of marshmallow fluff, delicious strawberry shortcake donuts with fresh strawberries and powdered sugar on top, and chocolate donuts with honey crunch on top. If that doesn’t float your boat, down the street on Saturdays When Pigs Fly serves extra large donuts that also rival these. Or seek out our neighbor @ Union Square Donuts. We eat donuts on our Somerville Food Tours every weekend — so save your appetite!
Chocolate Half Moons
Lyndells Bakery in Ball Square, Somerville
Icing on the cake — we love a good family owned business, and Lyndells in Somerville doesn’t disappoint. Over in nearby Ball Square, these half moon cookies come in chocolate and vanilla bases, and they’re often having a sale. Jerry Seinfeld thought that the black and white cookie would unite us all, and we agree — this indulgent treat is fun for chocolate and vanilla lovers alike! Some may say Boston Cream Pie is the original Boston dessert, but we like to think half moons are a tastier delight. And their eclairs aren’t shabby, either!
Brown Butter Soft Serve Ice Cream
Eventide Fenway in Boston
On our Fenway Food Tour, we love eating this sweet treat in the shadow of Fenway Park. It’s kind of funny because we’re trying to explain brown butter like, it’s brown… butter. I guess there’s nothing much to it besides the yummy caramelization of the butter that brings out a rich, nutty flavor complemented by the bourbon caramel. Altogether, it’s a rich, indulgent treat — and as you know, us Bostonians will eat ice cream year-round!
On every Boston Food Tour and Chocolate Tour, we serve a variety of unique sweets and treats to tickle your taste buds and indulge your senses and sweet tooths. Really, there is something for everyone on our unique experiences. So check our Tour Calendar and join us this week.
