Maybe it’s the fact that Halloween is almost here, or maybe 2020 has taught me to eat dessert first, but no matter the reason, I have got a major sweet tooth! Are you feeling the same? Here are 6 places to grab dessert in Hoover, Alabama.
1. Ivory LeShore’s Gourmet Bread Pudding and Cheesecakes
If you’re looking for a place to grab dessert that’s different from your typical cupcake or ice cream, check out Ivory LeShore’s. Enjoy uniquely flavored bread puddings, like their highly requested white chocolate, or choose apple cinnamon for a dessert that’s perfect for fall.
Not in the mood for bread pudding? Try out their creamy cheesecakes.
A bonus of Ivory LeShore’s? They offer online ordering, so you can get delicious desserts without leaving your couch. Keep up with their Facebook to stay updated on where their food truck will be located.
2. Santos Coffee Hoover
When you’re thinking of desserts, you might not think about heading to a coffee shop… but that is a mistake. Santos Coffee isn’t just one of my favorite places to grab coffee, it’s also my go-to when I want delicious crepes.
With options like cinnamon butter or banana, strawberry and chocolate (my favorite), you can’t go wrong. Next time you need to treat yourself, head to Santos for a caffeine and sweet treat fix.
3. La Sabrosita Ice Cream Shop
A perk of fall days in Birmingham? When it’s sunny, it’s still warm enough to eat ice cream. Head to La Sabrosita to get your fill of unique desserts.
If you aren’t craving ice cream, try one of their flavored aguas frescas, their fried plantains, or their mangonada—a frozen drink with mango slices and chili powder.

When you want something sweet, there is nothing like a flavorful cake. Komeh O. Davis started CakEffect in 2011, and for almost 10 years, she has been brightening people’s days with delicious treats.
Want to make your Friday meetings more fun? Bring some cupcakes in flavors like Banana Pudding, a banana cake cupcake filled with moist banana pudding, or Strawberry Supreme. Or, try one of their Kozies, gourmet cookies filled with buttercream frosting.
5. Dreamcakes Cafe
Don’t let the name fool you—Dreamcakes offers a wide variety of sweet treats, including cakes, ice cream, macarons, coffee drinks, and more.
Their Hoover location is less than a year old, but we’re already big fans. Check out their Ross Bridge storefront on your lunch break, and be sure to grab enough desserts to last until it’s time to clock out.
6. Nana Bakes
One look at the desserts from Nana Bakes, and you’ll be drooling and making plans to visit ASAP. At Nana Bakes, you can get “a little lovin’ from Nana’s oven” and I don’t know about you, but that’s exactly what I need.
They have your typical choices like brownies and chocolate chip cookies, but you can also switch your routine. Order cinnamon roll cookies, cosmic creamy brownies, or mason jars layered with all your favorite treats.
To order your Nana Bakes dessert, contact them to reserve a cake or baked good for delivery.
