Sweet Times: Eat Cake

👋 Shafaq here! I've been on a quest to find more late-night non-ice cream dessert spots and recently came across Eat Cake, which is exactly what I wanted to do.

Dig in: Eat Cake on North Shepherd serves cakes, cupcakes, brownies and cookies.

  • The bakery closes at 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays, so not a super-late-night option, but not bad for Houston's standards. Send me more recommendations!

My experience: I went in for the cake because, my golly, it looked scrumptious, and it was, but one of the cookies stole the show.

  • The very sweet person working there recommended the chubby gooey dulce latte cookie ($6), and I can't thank her enough. Easily one of the best cookies I've had. It's incredibly indulgent and gooey, and I've already gone back to get more.
  • I also ordered a slice of the 10-inch chocolate wonderland cake ($15). It was deliciously moist and hit the spot. If you too miss the old Chocolate Bar's chocolate cake, this can fulfill your craving.

If you go: 1901 N. Shepherd Drive, Unit 5.
