So if you're confused by the multiple options Google gives you, trust our list of the best dessert joints in the city.

From a Japanese cheesecake to even something as unique as a 'Gaajar' ice cream, here's a locality-wise list of places that make the most drool-worthy desserts of Mumbai. Bookmark 'em all, and eradicate all that stress, one dessert at a time! 

In & Around Bandra

Daniel Patissier

This hidden gem sitting quietly inside Jim-me’s Kitchen in Bandra has the cheesecake of our dreams. They make a scrumptious Japanese cheesecake with a light and cloudy texture. The flavoring is perfectly balanced and the crust is moist. You don’t find it at too many places in Mumbai, but you do at Daniel Patissier! They also whip up a panorama of colorful macarons (moist and crumbly), with flavors that include peanut butter, Nutella, saffron and almonds, salted caramel, key lime pie, and others. 

Known For: Japanese cheesecake a.k.a the Kyoto Lite cheesecake, almond Rochers, macarons 

Shell Out: INR 300 onward 

Chantilly Cafe

This small bakery has a very vintage vibe to it. There's a wooden staircase and a cosy sitting place on the first floor, and a small counter with the display of the desserts on the ground floor. This tiny bakery's masterpiece is the Liege cinnamon buns, or the liege waffles, which are soft and fluff. Topped generously with Philadelphia cream cheese frosting, caramel sauce, and cinnamon sugar, these buns are absolutely to die for! (Try them for a serious sugar rush). Ypu can also go for their hot chocolate. Every sip is delish! 

Known For: Liege cinnamon buns, Nutella cheesecakes, hot chocolate 

Shell Out: INR 270 onward 


Cheeky with its flavors, the ice creams at Bono are arguably some of the best in Mumbai. And the best of the best? Their sinful and rich Dark Chocolate Sea Salt. Have it in a waffle cone with an extra sprinkle of sea salt! All their ice creams are made using organic milk, and non contain any preservatives. Their other unthinkable flavors include milk chocolate bacon, blue cheese honey, Pondicherry vanilla, and more.

How many times do crave for one really big, really good Nutella sea salt cookie, all for yourself? Well if you're living in Andheri, just head straight to Sweetish House Mafia. Their cookies have the perfect gooey center and are slightly crisp around the edges. Take a bite and there will be Nutella or chocolate oozing out of the cookie but the light sprinkle of sea salt perfectly balances out its sweetness.

In & Around South Mumbai

K Rustoms

We had to kick off this section with K Rustoms for obvious reasons. The best, iconic (and the most affordable) dessert place in South Mumbai, they serve old-school ice cream sandwiches in unique flavors, and a pinch of nostalgia. An Iranian ice-cream parlour that was set up in 1953, whips up flavors like paan, gaajar, pista, walnut crunch, ginger lemon, and even a doodhi.
