Hood Famous specializes in Filipino desserts, mainly mini cheesecakes like white chocolate guava and matcha. While we endorse standing on a street corner with a fork, eating five flavors at one time in a takeout box, the purple ube cheesecake everyone’s obsessed with is not only the best thing here, but it’s the best cheesecake in the ID. If you’re not feeling the street corner, eat it inside for lunch chased with an iced ube macchiato, in case you wanted more ube. Ube for president.

For breakfast on the go in Belltown, go for a breakfast sandwich at Dahlia (there are only four seats there). And couple coconut cream pie bites.
