Underrated/Overrated: What are St. Louis' Most Underrated Desserts?

       One of our favorites this year was the chocolate-chip bars at Table. What else should we try? | Jennifer Silverberg

It's really a shame that dessert is reserved for the end of the meal. Half the time, we're so full we can't even bear to hear the words, "Would you like to see a dessert menu?" We're adults, though, so we can have dessert first or even only dessert if we want to (exciting, we know). We tapped Cyrano's (603 East Lockwood Avenue, Webster Groves; 314-963-3232) as having the best desserts in town this year, but we know there's got to be more.

Let us know in the comments what restaurant has the most underrated desserts -- we're dying to try some out! We'll count them up at the end of the week and take it to a vote on Monday.

I was sooooo pleased to see Cyrano's make a comeback. Back when it was at Clayton & Big Bend (where Harvest would be much later), my parents schlepped us over there from Belleville just once, for a special occasion. (Of course, that was when the Parkmoor, where I ate clown ice cream before my first trip to the Muny, was basically across the street. I'm STILL pissed about that one.)

Jennifer and I never have cared for Butter Cake or whatever that #1 dessert for St. Louis is.

@Riverbendbar Their creole bread pudding with whiskey sauce is criminally good.  They often have something amazingly chocolatey as a special.  You can't ever go wrong ordering any dessert there.

@gutcheckstl why always "underrated"? Why not just "best"? How thoughtful are respondents being regarding that distinction?

A picture truly says 1,000 words. The chocolate chip bars at Table are wicked awesome.
