The Best Desserts Around UT Campus That We Love

A Story By

There’s really no way to get through college without taking dessert breaks, so we’ve got you covered. Make sure to check out the best desserts around UT campus in between your classes and study breaks! 

Bananarchy is a West Campus favorite, serving decorated frozen bananas from a food truck in Space 24 Twenty. Choose from one of their favorite combos or design your own creation with dips and toppings on either a half or whole banana. This dessert makes for a fun spin on a healthy treat, and they have vegan options!

Insomnia Cookies recently claimed their spot under a popular off-campus dorm. The smell of warm and fresh-baked cookies is strong enough to draw in anyone walking by, so be careful! You can also order a brownie, ice cream, or cold milk to go with!

The Cold Cookie Company truck is one of our favorite spots to grab dessert around UT campus. It is located in the West Campus Food Trucks space and has a dangerous amount of incredible cookie combinations.

This spot will make you forget that you’re grabbing dessert around UT campus, and instead you’ll think you’re in the tropics!
