Accolades & Awards

Dessert Gallery is an experience Houstonians embrace to celebrate milestones and everyday accomplishments. We're proud our desserts have graced your tables for countless celebrations and special occasions at work and at home over the years, and we look forward to doing so for many more.

From lunch to dinner, with dessert first (of course), Dessert Gallery is in the business of putting smiles on people’s faces. We're real, not a big national chain. Real people make real desserts by hand, using great ingredients and lots of love. Sara Brook and the DG crew were doing it this way when “homemade” and “all natural” were a given, and not just the buzzwords du jour.
