Is there a more comforting word in the English language? Dessert is what you crave, and luckily there are some delicious desserts on the Upper West Side just waiting for your aggressive consumption.

The Upper West Side is chockfull (no pun intended) of places to satisfy your dessert fix. But gone are the days where just going for a scoop of ice cream is doing it justice. I’ll concede up front, I’m a lover of rich desserts, and not everyone has the same palate. That being said, there are several options that hit the spot without emptying your wallet if you’re looking for some yummy desserts on the Upper West Side.
