Sweet On RI: The Desserts & Treats That Locals Love


Yesterday, I had carrot cake from Pastiche for dinner. Sorry, not sorry, but you cannot go there without ordering something sweet. That would be a tragic mistake (#YOLO and all.). Now, I'm pretty certain you already know and love Pastiche and would not be at all surprised to hear that it tops the local favs lists of many who've been featured in the My RI Life series on this blog over the past year. You're probably wondering tho about other awesome places they recommend for desserts. Well, wonder no more because here's the definitive 2015 list of where else to go and what to order, courtesy of these amazing and talented PattyJ.com contributors.
