Houston's Dessert Scene Is Booming, and It's About to Get Even Bigger

Two chains will add to the city’s growing selection of sweet shops

In the coming months, two new chains serving up chilly and sweet treats will add to Houston’s already-exploding dessert scene.

First up is Mango Mango Dessert, a New York-based chain that focuses its desserts almost entirely on its namesake tropical fruit. In addition to freshly-squeezed mango juices and slushies, Mango Mango serves up waffles topped with fresh fruit, sundaes, mille crepe cakes in flavors like matcha and durian, and dessert bowls. The sweet shop’s first Houston location is set to open at 10613 Bellaire Boulevard inside Saigon Houston Plaza.

Also en route is Houston’s second location of Creamistry, the flashy ice cream chain that uses liquid nitrogen to freeze its bespoke flavors. The new location, which will open at 791 Town & Country Boulevard, joins the chain’s first Houston outpost, which opened in the Galleria last year. Creamistry’s expansion is especially good news for dairy-free ice cream lovers, as the chain offers both coconut milk and a sorbet base for those who stay away from cow’s milk.

The expansion of Creamistry and arrival of Mango Mango Dessert are just the latest in a parade of sweet-focused shops that have recently opened or announced plans to expand to Houston. NYC’s PopBar just arrived in Baybrook Mall with gelato popsicles in tow, Milk & Cream’s ice cream stuffed buns recently debuted, and Cloud 10 Creamery’s brand new location is now slinging scoops in the Heights.

Creamistry is expected to open its doors sometime in December, and Mango Mango Dessert could make its debut any day now. Stay tuned for an official opening timeline.
