When it comes to desserts and tea, the Dallas suburbs are currently thriving with new openings. Richardson just gained a combination Asian restaurant/teahouse/dessert bar and has another teahouse on the way, while Plano just landed a gourmet marshmallow company’s first s’mores bar.

Sweets are taking over North Texas and we’ve got the scoop on what’s new and what’s coming.

Mallow Box S’mores Bar

6121 W. Park Boulevard, Plano (Inside of The Shops at Willow Bend)

The first retail location of Mallow Box just opened last month at The Shop at Willow Bend. Called S’Mores Bar Cafe, the gourmet marshmallow company is bringing its variety of s’mores, hot and cold drinks, shakes, bowls and skewers to mall-goers.

Marshmallow are made from scratch at Mallow Box without any preservatives. Flavors of desserts and drinks range from chocolate & cream and maple bourbon with bacon to lemon & banana rum.
