Whether it’s ice cream, cookies, fudge, frozen yogurt, or brownies, you can always find what you need in Saratoga. Read about the best dessert locales below!

As the name suggests, Cookies & Milk has a lot of cookies to choose from. Gooey Louie is a popular cookie: Belgian cocoa, caramel chocolate truffle center & pink sea salt. There are also brownies, ice cream sandwiches, cupcakes, a layer cake, and of course milk (or tea and coffee).

3. Dairy Haus

One of the most popular places to get dessert in Saratoga Springs is Dairy Haus. They have both hard and soft ice cream, sherbets, ices, and slushes. They have many flavors to choose from, with some flavors rotating during the season. They also have special flavors of the week. The best part is their ice cream is made from scratch.

Plum Dandy is another very popular place for Skidmore students. Their frozen yogurt is always delicious, and you can choose as many flavors as you want. They also offer bubble tea, smoothies, shakes & floats, and hot chocolate. You can also use your Skid ID.

5. Ben & Jerry’s

Ben & Jerry’s has so many ice cream flavors to suit anyone’s preferences! My current favorite is Chocolate Peanut Buttery Swirl, which may sound boring but is anything but. They also offer ice cream cakes, Greek frozen yogurt, sorbets, smoothies and shakes.
