If you're planning a night in with friends or family and you're not watching the calories (or it's your cheat day!), you're in luck. Dubai is home to a plethora of specialist dessert takeaways, all of which offer something to intrigue those with the sweetest of teeth.
There's no need to be stuck for dessert inspiration. We've searched all over the city so that you don't have to and picked our top five indulgent sweet treats that can be ordered online for delivery straight to your front door.
1. Garrett Popcorn, Bundle for Two
A household favourite back in the United States, Garrett Popcorn Shops originated in Chicago way back in 1949 and has since sold handcrafted, delicious tasting popcorn. Suitable for all occasions, from movie nights in to children's birthday parties, these hot-air-popped batches are incredibly fresh and will last for a few days – unless you find them too irresistible in the meantime! For a cosy night in with a friend or partner, we recommend the Bundle for Two which comes with three small bags that include plenty for two sweet fiends to share.
2. Granny's Waffles, Granny's Crepe
If you're located within a stone's throw of the Dubai Mall, you'll be able to get some of Granny's Waffles delivered freshly to your home. Specialising in sweet crepes, waffles and pancakes, their menu is a real Aladdin's cave of sweet treats. Perfect for morning, noon and night time snacking, Granny's Crepe, smothered with Nutella, fresh bananas and strawberries and topped with chocolate sauce, is simply the food of gods and perfect with a dollop of ice cream.
3. Sale Sucre, Chocolate Hazelnut Cake
Bringing its own little slice of Parisian culture to Dubai, Sale Sucre has fast become a household name for speciality French patisserie in the Business Bay. If you're looking for a mid-morning pick-me-up or a special slice of sweetness after dinner, you can get their cakes and gateaux delivered within a matter of minutes. Their Chocolate Hazelnut Cake has to be seen to be believed though – it's incredibly rich and indulgent, making it ideal for that extra special occasion.
4. Éclair La Petite Duchesse, Éclair Caramel au Beurre Sale
Sticking with the French theme, Éclair La Petite Duchesse is also making a splash in CityWalk Boulevard with its specialist eclairs, perfect as gifts and as an after-dinner treat. There really are some tantalising concoctions on their menu, but we were particularly taken with their Éclair Caramel au Beurre Sale. This éclair features unctuous and decadent salted caramel and a fraction of salt to really tempt those taste buds. C'est magnifique!
5. Sugarmoo, Whacky Oreo Truffles
Dubai's inaugural online bakery, Sugarmoo, has a very healthy choice of desserts and cakes to choose from. Their individual desserts are particularly awesome with a nice cup of fresh coffee. Their Whacky Oreo Truffles are filled with fudge, cream and chocolate and rival the original Oreo biscuits in the taste department! For those with food allergies, their Healthy Moo section offers a Crazy Cake which contains no eggs, dairy or butter.
