As the weather starts to heat up, New Yorkers begin to think of ways to cool down, and during the summer, there is no better way to cool down than enjoying some ice cream or water ice. But why limit yourself to just those two desserts? Below are some of the best places to get dessert in NYC. Keep these spots in mind when it’s scorching out or if you just want to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Spot Dessert Bar

Spot Dessert Bar is one of the most popular dessert spots in the city. Many of its pastries feature Asian flavors like green tea and kabocha. One of the most intriguing items on the menu is something called The Harvest. It’s presented it a pot like a plant, but the “dirt” is made up of berries, cheesecake, raspberry sorbet, and other goodies. The dessert bar also offers a catering menu that’s a great idea for parties at work or home.
