To keep it manageable, we've focused on places where you can have dessert after you dine. Check out our picks for the 10 best places for dessert in Mississippi, then tell us your favorites in the comments!

1. Weidmann's, Meridian, MS

Weidmann's has been serving Meridian since 1870, and over the years word spread about their incredible desserts. When Charles Frazier bought Weidmann's after it briefly closed in 2010, he brought back many of the original recipes, including their famous Black Bottom Pie. Although this is the most well-known dessert, you'll have a hard time choosing, with offerings like lemon almond, praline bread pudding, and other indulgent after-dinner treats!

2. Primos Cafe, Flowood and Ridgeland, MS

The strawberry cake from Primos Cafe has won numerous accolades, and the hearts and bellies of locals. This is far from their only offering though—they also serve up delicious sweets like cookies, cupcakes, and fudge, daily.

3. ROCA, Vicksburg, MS

ROCA Restaurant and Bar is an upscale blend of European elegance with Southern style. This award-winning restaurant is located in a country club, but it's open to the public. And good thing, too, because no one should be deprived of the sweet potato and white chocolate bread pudding.

4. Le Bakery, Biloxi, MS

The food at Le Bakery is a unique blend of Vietnamese food, freshly-baked French bread, and both French and Asian desserts. Enjoy a Banh mi po’boy and a glass of bubble tea, then follow it up with a freshly-baked dessert like the chocolate almond pastry or the yucca coconut cake.

5. The Crystal Grill, Greenwood, MS

If you're looking for good food in the Delta, you've got to stop by the Crystal Grill in Greenwood. They offer an eclectic menu ranging from Greek to classic American grill food. Their lemon ice box cake is renowned throughout the South. If you don't live nearby, you might just want to bring a whole pie home with you!

6. Cafe on Main, Columbus, MS

Cafe on Main isn't the kind of place you go so you can brag about going there—it's the kind of place you go because you're hungry. With filling portions and a friendly staff, this will be your new go-to for lunch. The sheer selection of desserts would have landed them on our list, but it's the chocolate chip skillet cookie sandwich that really guarantees them a spot.

7. Woody's Tupelo Steakhouse, Tupelo, MS

Woody's Tupelo Steakhouse is the kind of place where you can enjoy fine dining cuisine while still relaxing in a warm and comfortable atmosphere. Whether you decide to dine on steaks, quail, bison, or gator, just be sure you save room for dessert. There's no wrong choice when it comes to the sweet stuff, but the Snickers ravioli comes highly recommended. 

8. Trapani's, Bay St. Louis, MS

Trapani's is known all across the Mississippi Gulf Coast as being one of the finest seafood restaurants in the area. Located on the beachfront in Old Town Bay St. Louis, this charming spot is the perfect place for a nice seafood dinner. The dessert of choice is the Dinwiddie Deluxe, a pecan cake topped with vanilla ice cream, toasted almonds, and amaretto. Decadence at its best!

9. Sherman's Restaurant, Greenville, MS

Sherman's Restaurant is a Delta institution. They've been operating since 1985, although the Sherman family originally opened the building as a grocery store in 1947. Although ownership has since changed hands, the new owners are serving up the same community spirit. The desserts are worth a visit by themselves, with offerings like Southern pecan pie, Beth's homemade cheesecake, and the indulgent loaded pretzel crusted brownie. 

10. Central Station Grill, Starkville, MS

Starkville is home to one of Mississippi's most exciting food scenes, and Central Station Grill embodies that culinary excitement. Here, you'll find innovative dishes to suit every taste, full of fresh ingredients and sophisticated flavors. Dessert is no different, with options like Dessert Shooters and a wild berry cobbler.
