Nancy Cole's family-run SOUTHERN SWEETS BAKERY remains a favorite thanks to her staff's dedication to creating home-style sweets minus the muss and fuss. Rustic cherry pie covered in crushed sugar cubes, creme freche coffee cake with a thick layer of pecans, and any of the towering layer cakes – such as the chocolate coconut or Key lime – are sure to please the most discerning sweet tooth. The bakery makes a large selection of vegan cakes even the most ardent carnivore would savor. And if you happen to be there around lunchtime, Southern Sweets also serves up a mean sandwich. less...

Since the day chef/owner Gerry Klaskala’s ARIA opened, his secret weapon has been pastry chef Kathryn King. Her sweets have an unerring sense of harmony — part nostalgic Americana, part technical fireworks. Maybe words don’t do it justice. Just go slip a mouthful of sunny peach cobbler or toasted lemon pudding cake with roasted plums down your gullet and you’ll see what we mean. A bit out of your price range for a non-celebratory meal? Check out King’s moist, boozy pineapple upside down cake at the Globe in Midtown (she designed the dessert menu there). less...

It's doubtful the customers at ARIA will ever let pastry chef Kathryn King take the warm chocolate cheesecake off the menu. First-timers' eyes go right to it, and regulars never protest: Someone at the table must order it. For the seasonally inclined, though, it's King's fruit desserts that can make the rest of the delectable meal a mere warm-up. Summery peach cobbler with not-too-sweet peach ice cream, macerated Bing cherries heightened by a gossamer lemon panna cotta, and, of course, her signature toasted lemon pound cake with roasted plums and ginger ice cream. What the heck - we'll take 'em all. "490 E. Paces Ferry Road. 404-233-7673. www.aria-atl.com" less...

A meal at ARIA is an elegant, scrumptious experience from start to finish, but dessert is without question the "piece de resistance". Kathyrn King's creations, like the signature warm chocolate cheesecake or toasted lemon pound cake with vanilla roasted plums and ginger ice cream, seduce without excessive frippery or too many competing flavors. They make honest sense and taste like heaven on earth. The sorbets, often a throwaway concession for the die-hard dieters, are stunning. A recent selection included small, intense scoops each of peach, lemongrass, cantaloupe, blueberry and plum sorbets. Don't you feel refreshed just reading that list? "490 E.

Indulgences of the highest order can be found in profusion at STAR PROVISIONS, the gourmet market that flanks the entrance to Bacchanalia. Irish butter so rich you'll never want Land O' Lakes again, blissful chocolate croissants on the weekend, and spicy, upscale meatball sandwiches are but a few of the treats to be found as you wander through the various rooms of the market. The cheese shop remains the finest in the city and the breads in the bakery have gotten crustier and more deeply flavorful. Lunching at nearby Taqueria Del Sol or Figo Pasta and then strolling through Star for a decadent treat has become our favorite weekend foodie ritual.

Pastry chef Kathryn King at ARIA knows the secret to great desserts lies in juxtaposition: hot/cold, crunchy/creamy, sweet/bitter. Consider, for example, her vanilla-roasted plums, dense and melting, and matched with toasted lemon pudding cake, ginger ice cream and a few slivers of candied lemon peel. Her warm, chocolate-swirled cheesecake has turned ardent cheesecake detractors into greedy plate-hoggers. This is the one restaurant in town where it is essential to leave room for a sweet finish.
