My husband and I went out for a date night and found this place while driving around the area. Reviews online said it was a great place but we would check out other options before coming here again. As far as cupcakes, if you are...More

This is cute little coffee shop/ bakery. It offers the same desserts and more than the Hershey Pantry. Coffee is good and they have great options including tea. Cupcake flavors vary but at least 12-15 options some are seasonal.

Great place to take care of your sweet tooth. They have pastries, bagels, cakes, cupcakes as well as some light sandwiches and salads. They have fresh coffee and can make specialty coffees as well. I love their baked oatmeal and every month they have a...More

We stopped on our way home. There is a lot of desserts to choose from. Chocolate chip cookies are huge. Sugar cookies with icing on are superb. We will definitely go there again.

We ordered a birthday cake from Desserts for my grandaughter and it was great. The place itself is pretty nice too and great staff

Went here after lunch at the Hotel Hershey and hours of shopping at the outlets so we were looking forward to putting our feet up and indulging ourselves. There are plenty of options - not many that are fruit based but plenty to choose from...More

I’m always thrilled to find restaurants that offer gluten free options, but I’m afraid we didn’t really enjoy our cupcakes at Desserts, etc. The GF chocolate cupcakes were incredibly dense and not in a good way. We also tried a GF peanut butter cookie, but...More

I have visited twice and both times the overwhelming majority of desserts were cupcakes. The atmosphere was modern and the staff were very accommodating. Coffee drinks were extremely well made. I was looking for something more on the French bakery side but I can see...More

Huge selection. We needed a shopping bag! Loved the coconut cake, coconut cupcakes, red velvet cupcakes, cookies and a coffee.

Even if you don’t buy one of their fabulous desserts, it’s worth a visit to Desserts for their wonderful, crafted lattes, both coffee and chai. One of my favorites for the season are their large gingerbread men, cookies with a peppy ginger taste and cute...More
