Whether you're celebrating the "month of love" with your favorite people or taking the time to treat yourself, there's always room for dessert. We've rounded up some local favorite spots to treat your sweet tooth that won't disappoint!

A few doors down from Indulge Bakery, you’ll find Couture Cakes by Nika, which specializes in delicious, hand-crafted cakes that are perfect for any special occasion.


If you are craving a gourmet cupcake, head over to Smallcakes right off of Jefferson Ave. There you will find inspired cupcakes with unique recipes that change daily. To top it off, they offer homemade ice cream that can stand alone or be paired with a delicious cupcake!

Scratch Bakery

Tucked away in Port Warwick is a delicious gem, Scratch Bakery. There you will find homemade goods that could make you forget you’re in a bakery, and not in grandma’s kitchen! If you’re looking for a “neighborhood bakery” with delightful cakes and cupcakes, stop by Scratch Bakery and do your taste buds a favor.

Nothing Bundt Cakes

Last, but certainly not least, Nothing Bundt Cakes came to Newport News a couple years ago, and our sweet tooth is so glad they did. From specialty Bundt cake flavors such as chocolate turtle to your classic lemon, you won’t want to pass by this delectable establishment without giving it a try!

West Village Barkery

Yes, you read that correctly. The West Village Barkery is specifically for your furry loved ones! Here you can find anything from specialty treats, accessories and more in this quaint shop located in Hilton Village.

We hope you enjoy these sweet spots and get to indulge a little this month! For a full listing of places to eat, visit our “Sip and Savor” page.
