Why wait for the weekend to treat yourself? Take a breather during the busy week and enjoy the simple things in life, like freshly made sweets. They may be just the thing needed to transform a slow afternoon into a productive one.

We captured the ice cream and dessert menu standouts at the most chill vendors near the Ballantyne® campus. It was a challenging task, but someone had to do it! Tag us when you try them too, @ballantynemag on Instagram.
