Atlanta is the capital of the South, so of course there are plenty of places to find a yummy pecan pie in the city. One of the best options is at Fox Bros., where they serve a chocolate pecan pie topped with cinnamon whipped cream. Of course, it is served warm, so the cream melts seductively into the nooks of the pie. For those with a sweet tooth, this is difficult to beat.

It’s hard to say no to a chocolate lava cake, and Fleming’s serves one of the best in Atlanta. When your fork slices into the rich cake and you see the molten Callebaut Belgian chocolate come oozing out, you’ll know you’ve made the right choice. It’s worth a few extra minutes on the treadmill to indulge in this velvety goodness. Of course, it comes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to melt into the warm cake.

Atlanta is a doughnut town, and one of the tastiest desserts is a hot pastry from Revolution Doughnuts & Coffee. It’s also a great choice if you have friends with dietary restrictions, as there are options for vegans or those with sensitivities to gluten, eggs or dairy. Expect a long line on the weekends, but it’s worth it for the toasted almond flavor, with real almond slices and frosting. Get them hot out of the oven and let them melt in your mouth.
