best kid friendly desserts and places in Atlanta

Doughnut Cone at Screamin’ Nuts | Leah Faupel

Celebrate the end of school and the start of summer with a sweet treat from one of these kid-friendly spots. All have walk-up or curbside service; check websites for hours and be sure to practice social distancing.

Doughnut Cone at Screamin’ Nuts 

If your kids love ice cream and doughnuts, you’ll want to check out this spot for wild flavors of small batch ice creams and house-made doughnuts. We couldn’t believe the soft, flaky doughnut cone could stand up to PB Oreo or Strawberry Cheesecake scoops, but it can! The shop is currently open for takeout orders.


Fruity Pebbles Doughnut | Sublime Doughnuts

Fruity Pebbles Doughnut at Sublime Doughnuts 

This ‘nut is a light and airy bite with strawberry cream cheese icing and a generous sprinkle of that colorful cereal! And it couldn’t look more fun. Make it a dozen, mixed flavors, so you can try some like dulce de leche and sweet potato. Currently the store is offering takeout only.

Cookie Monster Ice Cream at Morelli’s 

The flavors change frequently at Morelli’s, but some of the tried and true classics will always please the kids. This one is an all-star: cookie dough ice cream stuffed with Oreos, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate chips and swirled with fudge. Place your order online or walk in for counter service; no cash transactions at this time. Delivery is available, check the website for details.

S’mores Pie | Pie Par

S’mores Pie at Pie Bar 

Rich chocolate, toasted marshmallow and graham cracker crust make the s’mores pie a delish slice. Find it on Fridays and Saturdays – a great way to celebrate the weekend! Place an order online for in-store pickup; Pie Bar also ships straight to your door.

Vanilla Hokkaido Cupcake at Sweet Hut Bakery

For the very young, not much beats a tasty vanilla cupcake. Light and spongy Japanese cupcakes are filled with sweet vanilla buttercream. Call in your order for pickup or delivery via Sweet Hut’s app. Check the website for hours and locations that are currently open.


Cinnamon Rolls | Dulce Vegan

Cinnamon Rolls at Dulce Vegan 

Vegan and allergan-free baked treats are on display at Dulce, where you’ll often find fancy rainbow cakes and wildly colored cupcakes. But the ooey, gooey cinnamon rolls are a multi-napkin experience not to miss.

The cakes, pies and tortes are great here. But kids crave a cuppa, the European way. Steamed cream, and Dutch chocolate combine with whipped cream and shaved dark chocolate. Get carryout at the Midtown and Avalon locations; no cash transactions.

Superhero Snoball at Pelican’s Snoballs 

Snowy shaved ice drizzled with colorful flavored syrups is a winner with most kids. Try the Superhero Blue Raspberry and Cherry or Shark Attack. Get your order to go at the Marietta location.

Coca-Cola Cupcake at West Egg Café 

Is there a more celebrated cupcake in all of Atlanta? The Café’s top selling dessert is made from a family recipe. The flavor is like a mellow caramel, and it’s fun to think about eating Coke instead of drinking it. West Egg is open for curbside takeout and delivery.

Coal Train Sundae at Frosty Caboose

You can’t go wrong with this combination: chocolate ice cream, chocolate chips, cookie crunch, hot fudge sauce and whipped cream. The walk-up window of this Chamblee landmark is open for business.
