Our friends over at Spoon University published this super sweet article. In case you missed it, this is a solid Fairfield County dessert roundup. NOTE: Vespa is Westport has since closed, so cross that chocolate layer cake off the list.
People often associate good food with big cities like New York or LA. The truth is good food is everywhere - you just have to know where to look for it. Even Fairfield County which is made up of 24 small Connecticut cities and towns, boasts some incredible food. Here's a list of the most epic desserts in Fairfield County.
1. Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcake at Cake Box
I've eaten a lot of cupcakes in my life and absolutely nothing tastes as good as the mint chocolate chip cupcakes at Cake Box. They only serve this decadent flavor on Thursdays, so make sure to check your calendar before stopping into one of their Ridgefield or Westport locations. They also have a gluten free location called Swoon in Ridgefield.
2. S'mores Campfire at Milkcraft
Milkcraft in Fairfield instantly became insta-famous among young adults in Fairfield County because their cones are so damn pretty. I recommend going during the day so you can take a photo of your liquid nitrogen churned ice cream in a Hong Kong-style cone with natural lighting.
3. Vanilla Soft Serve at Ridgefield Ice Cream Sho
Ridgefield Ice Cream is the definition of a classic ice cream shop. It's an old school Carvel from the 1950's that serves up some of the best soft serve around. Don't get too complicated - stick with their simple, but delicious vanilla. Full disclosure: I did work here in high school, but that just shows that they have great ice cream and great service.
