If you're exploring Avalon, go all out with Oak Steakhouse's blueberry bread pudding, lemon ice cream and blueberry compote. A grown up steakhouse experience is instantly more fun by finishing with a peaches and cream sundae. Brown sugar peaches and pecan streusel makes this classic just a bit more sophisticated. It's also sure to help you close a big business deal.
Sandy Springs locals know that Double Zero is the place for Southern Italian classics and authentic Neapolitan pizzas. After splitting a pie with your pals, indulge in the giant classic Double Zero chocolate cake. This is far from a double zero, it's more like a 10. You know you want it.
Pie is the new cupcake and Atlantic Station's The Pig & The Pearl is all over it. Try their seasonal mini pies with a side of homemade ice cream, as well as their mock Pop Tarts. And don't worry, they also have cupcakes on their fun catering menu. If you don't have room for dessert when you visit The Pig & The Pearl, you can have them at your next event.

This Old 4th Ward staple is known for its sticky toffee pudding. We love the combination of textures between the chewy caramel and crunch of pecans with sweetness strewn throughout. The perfectly placed scoop of vanilla ice cream takes this treat to a whole new level. Sold.
