In 1995, Sara Brook opened the first Dessert Gallery Bakery & Cafe in downtown Houston. A go-to spot for any sweet treat imaginable, the bakery has brought joy to Houstonians for many years, and now it’s expanding to bring joy to The Woodlands. This unique, woman-owned business opened its second location in the heart of The Woodlands on Waterway Avenue in early February.

“We are so excited to officially open The Woodlands location of Dessert Gallery,” said Brook. “We have been creating sweet memories with the Houston community for nearly 30 years, and expanding into The Woodlands was the natural next step.”

The Woodlands will feature the same menu as the Houston location, with 40 - 50 offerings, including signature sweets like the Tres Leches (the top choice of former Houston Astros star Carlos Correa) and the original Chocolate-Dipped Chocolate Chunk Cookies made with three kinds of chocolate. 

‘Brookies’ are Sara’s personal recommendation, a scrumptious combination of dark chocolate cookies with chocolate brownie chunks. Another menu highlight is Jennifer’s Birthday Cake, with fudgy, dark chocolate layers, filled with dark chocolate fudge, iced with chocolate buttercream frosting and topped with sprinkles. 

The new location also will feature new items introduced at the end of 2023. Order the Billionaire Brownies, fudge brownies with toasted pecans and chocolate glaze splashed with gold, or try a slice of decadent Marble Cake, with a unique pudding-like chocolate buttercream frosting.

A self-professed lover of desserts, Sara is a fifth generation Houstonian. Sara is excited to experience of all that The Woodlands has to offer.

“We are so lucky to have found a great location that’s close to staples like The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center, The Westin at The Woodlands, and The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, and we look forward to being part of The Woodlands community,” she shared. 

After four decades in the bakery business, Sara still loves coming up with new recipes and ideas, including vegan, sugar-free and gluten-free desserts. When she’s not baking, she spends time working with local charities. There is never a quiet moment at Dessert Gallery, as the business delivers locally and around the nation. 

The menu at Dessert Gallery is a testament to Sara’s creativity in the kitchen. From personalized birthday cupcakes to indulgent festive treats and freshly baked pastries, her innovations are nothing short of sweet perfection.
