This is the list you don’t want your dentist to see. But when your sweet tooth needs satisfying, this is the list you want to keep close at hand. If it has sugar in it, it’s on this list.
Here are some of Niagara’s greatest spots to get your sweet on.
Hometown Ice Cream has delicious cookies, bars, cakes, macaroons and of course ice cream. Service is fabulous and everything tastes delicious.

Hometown Ice Cream has everything, not just ice cream. Everything is delicious as well. We’ve tried most of their goodies.
— Catherine Moyes Martin
Chocolates Etc. is a small little store with delicate truffles and chocolates, locally made sorbet, wonderful baked goods and the coffee. Sit inside and play chess while enjoying your snacks or enjoy the patio and live music on the summer weekends.

Edible Options for us gluten free (and dairy free) folks!!! the BEST cinnamon buns.
— Chelsey Sneath
Flavour Fuel in St.Catharines for keto and diabetic friendly treats!

Lester D’s Reel Diner for a unique, movie-themed dining experience. The milkshakes and staff are amazing there.

Beechwood Doughnuts is already one of the biggest destinations in St. Catharines, and not just for vegans. I’ve eaten doughnuts at some of the most famous places in North America and Beechwood is up there with Doughnut Plant and Dough in NYC, and some flavours beat them.
— Mandi Gould
Every dessert in this place — emphasis on cannoli pie. Actually all of their cannoli, especially the blueberry.
— Amy Bordynuik
13th Street Winery is my go-to place for sour cherry tarts — and butter tarts, of course. Pies are terrific and I always have a few in the freezer. I haven’t made my own pie since I discovered this place.

Gelato Village is awesome and they have pumpkin spice and apple pie gelato right now.
— Jane Carnegie
Waffles & Crepes in Crystal Beach. Hands down, the best crepes and waffles you will ever have. Fresh ingredients, and the design and presentation of each one is amazing, and it tastes as good as it looks. I would highly recommend you take a trip to Crystal Beach. You won’t be disappointed!
— Cathy MacInnis Kontogianis

Niagara Juice Co. is the best kept secret in NOTL. Their baked goods are homemade goodness. I know this sounds insane but their gluten-free muffins (I don’t like muffins and don’t need gluten-free) are incredible. And the homemade ice cream sandwiches are worth the trip. I promise!
— Erica Lepp
Fritters on the Lake in Niagara-on-the-Lake: Amazing apple fritter treat, delicious, welcoming staff, polite, generous, accommodating, and locally owned.
