We at LBB take our dessert seriously and when we’re left deserted at midnight with no options but an old forgotten bar of 5 Star, it can be quite the bummer. We decided to look for greener pastures and here’s what we found.

Nirulas

nirulaWe have three words for you: Hot Chocolate Fudge. For late night comfort food, a sugar rush if you have to stay up for work or just because you’re jonesing for a little sweet something, head to Nirulas in CP. It’s a classic for a reason; you’ll leave feeling warm and fuzzy.

Hokey Pokey

Their concept is simple- pick your flavour, pick your toppings and watch them create your dessert. By this we mean they’ll mix them toppings in well, so every bite is just as satisfying the first few. Ideal for a post-party chill snack, or late-night bingeing with your #bae.

#LBBTip: You could always drive to your nearest 24/7 as well. Most of them stock Hokey Pokey nowadays.

Wafflebay & Yogurtbay

yog

Want that sweet kick without the hot serving of guilt on the side? We’re saying opt for Yogurtbay’s selection of frozen yogurts, Cranberry in particular. They also do waffle sticks {best invention ever} if you’re willing to do an extra spot of cardio the next day. Pick a combo {we vote Oh So Berry Good} for when you’re feeling part saint, part sinner.

Captain Grub

Although they don’t primarily qualify as a dessert parlour, they’re making sure your late-night meal has a happy {aka sweet} ending. With freshly introduced gelato and frozen yogurt as well as thick, creamy shakes and dessert options, they have plenty of options. Us? We’re going with the Peanut Butter Blast shake and the Strawberry Frozen Yogurt.

Beyond Breads

beyondNo post about dessert is complete without the mention of a cake. For a late night birthday surprise, might we suggest Beyond Breads? Their cakes are always fresh and the quality is top-notch. We’re leaning towards the Hazelnut Praline, but they have plenty of variety. Feeling adventurous? They’ve got a Paan flavour, too.

ChocoVault

Chocovault

ChocoVault is your destination for all things chocolate. Choose from their range of confectionery, shakes or even chocolate fondue. If that’s too rich for your taste, opt for their waffle sticks. Available in a range of flavours including After 8 and Vanilla, Caramel, we’re partial to the Red Velvet one, even though the customary cream cheese has been replaced with whipped cream.

Cherry Comet

Another nitro ice cream place. Cherry Comet’s menu comprises unusual flavours, including a Horlick Hustle, Gulab E Lychee and Banarasi Punch {paan flavoured}. Although the prices are a little higher than other contenders {starting at INR 140}, it’s definitely worth a visit.

Niice Cream

Niice Cream lets you choose your flavours, toppings and colours {yep, you could get a red vanilla ice cream if you so desire}. If you’re a chocolate person, we’d recommend ordering the Nutella without a moment’s hesitation. It comes with a syringe of chocolate sauce. If you’re significantly hungry, opt for the Niice Burger- an ice cream sandwich made with waffles on both ends.

Elmas

Solely responsible for popularising the red velvet cake in the city, Elma’s menu is high on cake. We personally love the Salted Caramel, the Carrot and the New York Cheesecake and the Moist Chocolate. Throw in an ice cream shake to really make a night of it.
