Palm Beach County has its fair share of bakeries, each toothsome in their own way. But when it comes to merging taste and design, a new Delray Beach patisserie is offering customers a delectable, Instagram-worthy experience.

After originally purchasing the space as a storage unit for the Warren Delray restaurant and whiskey bar, Damn Good Hospitality Group decided instead to open Damn Good Sweets, tasking pastry chef Julian Belon with spearheading the shop’s modern concept. “They want over-the-top, whimsical desserts and classics,” says Belon, who mutates familiar flavors with playful designs. “I twist the desserts around to create some really cool stuff.”

Last year, Damn Good Sweets won the judge’s championship at Dessert Wars in West Palm Beach. Their victor? The Coconut: a semifreddo consisting of a dome filled with coconut mousse, exotic compote, and a lime-soaked cake that is dipped in chocolate then quickly brushed on the outside to create a texture reminiscent of a coconut shell.

While Damn Good Sweets will have a set menu of drip cakes, ice cream sandwiches, and more, Belon says it will update on a regular basis to highlight interactive, fun desserts. “It’s going to blow people’s minds,” he adds. “It’s food that they’ve never seen before. We’re going to try and push the limits of what we can do.”
