Not too long ago in Charlotte, a dessert menu was considered adventuresome if it offered tiramisu and crème brûlée. No longer. Local restaurants are employing pastry chefs who are reimagining old classics while inventing new ones. And the sweet stuff isn’t limited to sit-down spots. There are chocolatiers and creameries and bakeries—traditional and otherwise—and even a place that serves vegan doughnut holes. Plus, chefs will teach you how to concoct your own. Got a sweet tooth? We’ve got the goods.
