Winnipeggers have a pretty big sweet tooth. And we're happy to indulge it.

Many top drawer bakeries and dessert shops have opened across the city. And many of those sweet destinations have been in business for years, and in some cases, decades.

Sure, Winnipeg's top pastry chefs make all the favourites like chocolate cake, apple pie and classic cheesecake but it's what they do outside the lines that keeps customers coming back. Think Pavlovas, mousses, tortes, pies and slices, all made with the freshest fruits and top-drawer ingredients. So grab a seat, peruse the dessert cases and we dare you to choose just one slice.

Here are a few of Winnipeg's best places to grab a slice of cake or other sweet delights:
