10 Desserts To Try Before You Die

Hey friends, @TheNashvilleGuide here! I believe dessert comes before dinner (obviously), so I wanted to share my favorite places for sweet treats in Nashville. Of course, Nashville's sweets and good eats are a few of my favorite things, but I also love the small businesses, artisans and lovers of local that call our city home. If you follow me on Insta, you'll find I strive to post photos that showcase the best Music City has to offer.

Classic Vanilla Cone at Bobbie's Dairy Dip

A Nashville staple with a walk-up order window and outdoor picnic table seating. My go-to is a classic sprinkle vanilla ice cream cone.

Cronuts at Five Daughters Bakery

Known for their 100 layer cronuts, a combination of a croissant and a donut—basically the best thing ever. My personal favorite's the Milk Chocolate Sea Salt!
