Shyndigz for a Sweet Date Night

As RVA’s first dessert only restaurant, Shyndigz is such a fun place to go for any occasion. It’s been voted 5 years in a row as Richmond’s BEST dessert. One bite, of ANY of their desserts, and you’ll agree. And follow them on Facebook to find out about their special creations and specialties of the day.

We’ve been on many a date night here and it never disappoints.

 

 

The waitress at our first visit recommended their ever-popular Salted Chocolate Caramel Cake and it was amazing.

My personal favorite is the fresh fruit cake…sweet and light (though big and tall) and the cake is just perfection. It is to die for. Did I mention sweet and light?!?

 

My husband is partial to the peanut butter pie and the banana pudding, both of which are also amazing. I’m convinced you really can’t go wrong.

It’s a great place to write your own love story on a special date night!

And it’s a fun place to celebrate all kind’s of life’s fun moments too.

My oldest daughter and I love to sneak away to get our chocolate and coffee fix – and the creme brûlée is delish! The atmosphere is fun, quaint and eclectic.

Shyndigz really does take the cake – and a whole lot more.
