Baladi Mediterranean Café, Virginia Beach, VA

Baladi Mediterranean Café is known for their authentic Mediterranean entrees, but our favorite part of the meal has to be the homemade baklava. Choose pistachio, cinnamon-walnut, or almond; you can’t go wrong. 

Eerkin’s Uyghur Cuisine, Fairfax, VA

The Uyghur’s are a much-maligned population on the China/Afghanistan border that most American’s haven’t heard of, but they should if for no other reason than their delicious cuisine. For dessert, try the chocolate honey cake, homemade in the Uyghur style with organic honey and layered chocolate.

The Black Hen Restaurant in Blacksburg, Virginia offers seasonally-inspired menus for lunch and dinner. No matter what time of year you come, you can expect tasty desserts. We recommend the Brown Butter Almond Cake.

The Shack, Staunton, VA

The Shack is one of Staunton, Virginia’s best restaurants, hands down. They are a James Beard Semi-Finalist for Best Chef Mid-Atlantic and have been featured on tons of top restaurant lists. All of that aside, their Chocolate Cremeux and Miso Banana Bread Pudding are, in a word, perfect.
