Just Desserts — A Return to Stella’s

Strawberry milkshake

When in doubt, eat dessert first.  You’ll never be disappointed if, on occasion, you give in to your sweet tooth and make dessert the main event!  And that doesn’t mean that you have to or should go to a place that specializes in desserts.  On the contrary, lately, I’ve been indulging in places that take pride in sweets, regardless of their professed speciality.

Last week, I was charged with finding a low key place to hang with a stellar brownie sundae. Stella’s Diner was the first to come to mind. Located in Lakeview, it’s an excellent family-owned neighborhood diner, and you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, especially dessert.  The chocolate brownie a religious experience, the strawberry milkshake will change your life, and the apple pie and chocolate diva cake hold their own.  Everyone at the table thought their particular dessert was the best. Success and enough said! Where’s your favorite place for dessert?  Leave us a comment or drop us a line on Twitter.  I’m on the hunt!
