2020 Dessert
Editors’ Choice

Ledger Restaurant & Bar


Saving room for dessert should be a requirement at Ledger in Salem, which excels with wildly creative offerings like black pepper cheesecake and strawberry lime almond layer cake. And while many restaurants allowed dessert to fall by the wayside during the COVID-19 crisis, Ledger knew it was just as important—or maybe even more important—than ever, adding an assortment of sweets (like piña colada sweet empanadas) to its online ordering program, Ledger Basket, and even hosting fun events like the Frozen Assets ice cream and toppings pop-up.

Simply Sweet


Simply Sweet lives up to its name with more than just its candies, ice cream, chocolate-dipped cookies and pretzels, and other treats. It also showed its sweetness when it helped donate Easter baskets to families in need during the COVID-19 crisis.
