There are two types of people in this world: people who always order dessert after dinner, and those that never do. Whether or not you frequently shell out cash for a sweet finish to your meal, there are some desserts that must not be skipped no matter how full you are.

Dallas has no shortage of great restaurants, and as such, there are plenty of excellent sweet treats across the city to accompany savory fare. Ranging from the sophisticated (a delicate floral soufflé) to the absolutely absurd (a kettlebell filled with cheesecake), these 11 restaurant desserts are definitely worth a try at least once.

Go forth, and make sure that you've tried these essential cakes, fried pies, and panna cottas. You'll probably want to act quickly, though, as the majority of these dishes will change (at least slightly) with the seasons.

Did your favorite dessert miss the cut? Make your case in the comments.

You can always find perfectly-fried zeppole (Italian doughnuts) at Cane Rosso, but this month, they're a little more special. Spiked with pumpkin purée and a hefty dose of spice, you're going to want a full order of these powdered sugar-drenched bites all to yourself.

If you're looking for a seriously decadent ice cream sundae, skip the ice cream shop and head to CBD Provisions. Cream cheese ice cream, salted caramel hot fudge, and a sprinkle of pecan cookie crumble add up to one ridiculously good sundae.

It’s pretty much impossible to keep up with FT33’s ever-changing dessert menu, but that’s the beauty, right? Right now, this concord grape, goat cheese, pistachio, and pear composition is as delicious as it is artistic.

Gemma's menu rotates with the seasons, but you can always expect a selection of stellar sorbets and ice creams on offer. If you can't choose just one, get the sampler and a cup of herbal tea for a light finish to your meal.

Whether or not you're into Crossfit, you're going to love this kettlebell-shaped indulgence. A chocolate kettlebell encases a creamy strawberry cheesecake filling, and laced with honey coconut caramel. A scoop of ice cream and even more caramel gild the lily.

Going to Nick & Sam's is inherently a splurge, so why not just go all the way? A slice of this Dallas classic's red velvet cake is big enough to feed a small family, but once you dig in, you'll quickly realize there won't be any leftovers. If red velvet is too classic for your taste, order the ridiculous rainbow cake, served with a side of cotton candy and topped with a pile of gummy bears.

7. Remedy

Chef Danyele McPherson does desserts damn well at this Lower Greenville eatery. A selection of pies is ever-changing, but the coconut cream is a classic, and for good reason. A ridiculously rich custard filling is topped with torched meringue and toasted coconut for a serious upgrade on grandma's old-school recipe.

8. Rise No. 1

Rise specializes in the creation of souffles, so you can bet when it comes to this particularly finicky dessert, this place knows what they’re doing. The mouthwatering soufflés come in a variety of indulgent flavors, but the off-menu violet soufflé is absolutely a must.

9. Savor

Savor’s dessert menu is beyond tempting, but the must-try is the fried pie. This deep-fried delight is stuffed to the brim with berries, surrounded with lemon curd, and served with a scoop of basil ice cream and granola garnish. It’s a simple classic that never disappoints.

The Mansion may have a brand new chef, but you’ve still got time to check out the pastry menu before any big changes are made. Indulge in apple bread pudding, blueberry tart, or pumpkin panna cotta to give your meal a ridiculously refined finish.

Life would be better if there were more brownie sundaes. At The Theodore, this childhood classic gets an upgrade with a ridiculously fudgy brownie and plenty of crunchy toffee. The scoop of ice cream almost seems absurdly decadent, but just go with it.
