"Treat yo'self" should be a theme this summer. Forget the days of feeling guilty for indulging in sweets or avoiding them because of your diet. When a city like Atlanta is making desserts that sometimes look too beautiful to eat (and taste even better), you can't pass them up.

Here at Narcity we've done you the favor of compiling the best plates of sugary goodness in Atlanta. Each stop featured won't even break your wallet - these are the best dessert shops in the state that cost less than $8. This map will take you inside and a bit outside the perimeter, but we promise that everything listed is so worth it.
