Sometimes after a long, stressful day, you deserve a treat. While a lot of the times it may be tempting to treat yourself to a spa day, or a new pair of shoes, that's definitely not always within your budget.
One thing you can pretty much always afford though, is a sweet treat! Who would turn down ice cream, a fresh pastry, or a doughnut?! It's almost always guaranteed to cheer you up, and it won't break the bank.
Luckily for you Edmontonians, the city has about a million spots where you can stop and fulfil your cravings. We've taken the liberty of creating this sweet little map for you, so you can hit one, a few, or all of the amazing dessert spots you'll find in the city! Where will you go first?
