8. DELAWARE: Dessert at The House of William & Merry in Hockessin
It doesn't matter what's on the dessert menu at The House of William & Merry — just order it. The restaurant has received the Best of Delaware Trifecta (Best Chef, Best Fine Dining Upstate, and Best in Hockessin) for two years in a row and it's easy to see (and taste) why. Everything at this farm-to-table establishment is produced locally and beautifully plated and pastry chef Ryan Flynn's desserts are no exception.

On the late summer menu now are desserts like "Don't Be So Corny,": chocolate-corn lava cake, carmel popcorn, sweet corn puree, salted caramel, chocolate sauce, and caramel-corn semifreddo. YUM.

The Best Part: The restaurant also serves brunch, which includes the house breakfast burrito du jour.
