#DessertGoals are met with an array of unique dessert options for Lake County Restaurant Week.

There’s no better way to finish your three-to-four course meal than with something sweet to satisfy your soul.

Many of our Lake County Restaurant Week participants are renowned as the hostess with the moistest cakes, the sultans of crunchdom, the experts that create music to our sweet tooth and enable you to interject for ice cream and so on.

Some of these desserts are off the radar, and the best kept secrets of Lake County.

We figured we’d take this opportunity to shine a light on some of the most unique dessert options for Lake County Restaurant Week.

Attention all sweet tooth fiends: Lend us your eyes and your taste buds.
