For those of us with a sweet tooth, the most anticipated part of a meal often comes at the end — when the dessert is served. (And for those who simply can’t wait, we’ll forgive you if you’d prefer to just skip the main course and get straight to the sweet treat.)
Of course, when vacationing in a foodie-favored destination like Myrtle Beach, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from when seeking must-have decadent delights. Looking for an out-of-this-world dessert during your stay on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront at Ocean Reef Resort? Here are five of our area favorites, listed in no particular order:
Apple Strudel, Cafe Old Vienna
Found about 4.5 miles down North Ocean Boulevard from Ocean Reef Resort, Cafe Old Vienna has been serving German and Austrian favorites to Myrtle Beach locals and visitors for over 25 years. And after the schnitzel, goulash and bratwurst are done, the hot apple strudel topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream is an excellent choice to end the meal.
Cherries Jubilee, The Library
Found on North Kings Highway less than a mile from Ocean Reef Resort, The Library Restaurant has been a favorite fine-dining choice on the Grand Strand since 1974. And after a tableside-prepared Steak Diane or a delicious Filet & Lobster dinner, the Cherries Jubilee delivers a sweet ending to the evening meal that you won’t soon forget.
Warm White Chocolate Bread Pudding, Bistro 217
Located in Pawleys Island about 28 miles south of Ocean Reef Resort, Bistro 217 makes dinner worth the drive to the Hammock Coast with tasty dishes like Trout Almondine, Grilled Chicken Orzo and Pan-Seared Lobster, Shrimp & Scallops. And when the main course is done, the dessert menu doesn’t disappoint — especially when you opt for the Warm White Chocolate Bread Pudding served with homemade vanilla bean ice cream and bourbon cream.
Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake, Croissants Bistro and Bakery
Found on North Kings Highway about a mile from Ocean Reef Resort, Croissants Bistro & Bakery offers a long list of options for dessert lovers, including a range of fresh-made cakes, pies, cupcakes and cookies. But our favorite among them is the Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake, which features a trio of delicious layers of chocolate mousse and a crunchy pecan crust.
Cheese Square, Toffino’s
A deli and pizzeria found on Farrow Parkway about 9.5 miles south of Ocean Reef Resort, Toffino’s also features an Italian bakery cooking up the likes of macaroons, eclairs, sponge cakes, cheesecakes, cannoli, and crumb cakes. It’s all delicious, but the Cheese Square — a sweet Danish cheese-filled puffed pastry topped with whipped cream — is tops on our list.
