Sweet Buttons Desserts on Urbanspoon

Sweet Buttons on the Lower East Side is as cute a place as it sounds. Home to bite sized desserts, these tiny treats offer customers the opportunity to indulge more than just one dessert.

Housed in a fun space adorned with purple polka dots and sparkles, even the cupcakes shine with edible glitter. Offering everything from cupcakes, tarts, puddings and so on, one can really experiment with flavors and textures here.

 

The price point is great and the goods are really tasty, I think Sweet Buttons is definitely worth being checked out.

 

Here is some of what we ate:
