Desserts are an essential part of any meal, but especially so during the holidays. To round out those safe Christmas meals at home, Austin bakeries and restaurants are making it easier to figure out sweets game plans by offering desserts for preordering. There’s everything from cookie tins from Texas French Bread, pies from bakery Fluff Meringues & More, buches de noel a-plenty, and much more.

Everything below is listed alphabetically and is available for pickups (delivery services are noted). Check out Eater’s separate holiday meal to-go guide, tamales, and dinners/brunches. Likewise, check out these holiday cocktail pop-ups offering takeout drinks and specials.

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each business is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the businesses themselves.

This guide will be updated leading up to Christmas Eve on Friday, December 24. If there is an Austin restaurant offering holiday dessert preorders missing below, let Eater know through austin@eater.com.
