Southern Sweets Bakery: Nancy Cole's family-run Decatur dessert mecca makes decadent brownies. The word “brownie” may conjure images of diminutive treats, but there is nothing small about these monsters — they’re almost as big as a box of Raisinets. Cole’s recipe uses two types of imported chocolate, which results in an incredibly rich and sticky treat whether your preference is regular or with toasted walnuts. It’s the stuff of which fudgey brownie dreams are made of. Both choices are finished with a lacy drizzle of deep chocolate ganache to take these destination-worthy beauties over the top. 186 Rio Circle, Decatur. 404-373-8752. www.southernsweets.com.
Parish Market: Jonathan Hilaire’s sweet creations — such as his brownies made with organic ingredients — grace the industrial/Parisian chic shelving near the coffee station in the bottom level of this New Orleans-inspired eatery. The dense brownies are more flourless chocolate cake than fudge, which means they are just as good for breakfast as dessert. And those of you who dig crusty edge pieces will be thrilled. 240 N. Highland Ave. 404-681-4434. www.parishatl.com.
Star Provisions: Chefs Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison’s specialty food store is an addiction for most Atlanta food freaks (even if the prices are astronomical). The bakery’s brownies are an affordable way to get a taste of the sweet life, however. Both the regular and walnut brownies resemble an incredibly dense and crumbly chocolate cake made with quality ingredients. The portions may seem small, but the brownie is so intensely chocolatey that another bite would border on the obscene. 1198 Howell Mill Road. 404-365-0410. www.starprovisions.com.

Some food just doesn't photograph well, even if it is tasty.
