Decadent Dessert Bar & Bistro is a franchised chain of restaurants from Buttercream Dreams Hospitality Group. The group also owns Decadent’s sister-concept Smallcakes Cupcakery & Creamery, which has grown to operate over 140 locations in 22 states. “Decadent is the first of its kind—a fast and casual dessert bar that offers the highest quality desserts at a sweet yet affordable price,” shares the company’s website. “Everything on our menu is made fresh daily, all day, every day, using only the finest ingredients.”

According to Decadent’s website, the menu changes daily, but you can find dessert staples like cakes, pies, and gelato no matter when you duck in for a visit. The drink menu ranges from house-blend coffees and cold brew to smoothies, frappes, and lattes.

1355 S. Michigan Avenue is located at the corner of Michigan and E. 14th Street. Decadent Chicago will neighbor other eateries like The Chicago Firehouse, Chicago Waffles South Loop, Victory Lap, and Giordano’s.
