Birmingham’s best-kept dessert secret
The word is out, and it may surprise you: The Balti Triangle is fast gaining a reputation as the go-to stop for desserts in Birmingham. The city’s well-loved curry houses may stand wall-to-wall along Ladypool Road, but look closer and you might notice that dessert shops have been on the rise of late. Starting from the southern end close to where it meets Birchwood Road, Heavenly Desserts is everything its name suggests – divine, lavish and extraordinary – with more sundaes, waffles, crepes and baked delicacies than you can dream of. Moving along, visit Icestone Gelato to see Italian ice cream made before your eyes, then keep heading north just after Brunswick Road to Adore Desserts, which will lure you in with insanely delightful goodies you can’t say no to, such as the Ferrero Rocher cheesecake, sticky toffee pudding and midnight cookie milk shots. A convenient pop across the street will take you to Artisan, the Birmingham dessert parlour where former homegrown Great British Bake Off contestant Ali Imdad dishes out over a hundred of his lovely creations each day. There you have it! The top dessert spots in Birmingham, all in one single location. Isn’t it time you made your way there to sample the best of what Ladypool Road has to offer?
