This guide to Best Matcha Desserts in Austin was last updated: November 10, 2019
I’m obsessed with green tea desserts and was determined to hunt them down in Austin. If you follow me for just a few weeks on Instagram, you’d know love matcha a latte. I created a list of best Matcha Desserts in Austin to share my obsession with you!
Matcha Parfait from Komé
The Matcha Parfait from Komé is my favorite of all the matcha desserts I’ve had in Austin. The layers of the parfait include matcha panna cotta, rice krispies, red bean paste, rainbow mochi balls, and green tea ice cream. It’s a delightful combination of textures and flavors.

Matcha Ice Cream Cone from DipDipDip Ice Cream
I have a theory that the team that the Tatsuya team in Austin can do no wrong with each new concept. Their new ice cream concept attached to their shabu shabu concept, DipDipDip-Tatsuya, serves up intricate ice cream cones, including this Matcha one called the Matcha Cha Cha. It comes with sweet black soybeans, azuki pureé, and a whip cream fraîche that reminds me of cream cheese icing. The cone is dipped in matcha too! You order through a digital kiosk and can add toppings like roasted marshmallows and miso kouign-amanns.

White Chocolate Matcha Mousse at Peached Tortilla
I’ve been a long time fan of Peached Tortilla. When I learned they had a green tea dessert, it was a happy excuse for a return visit. Their white chocolate matcha mousse was such a unique treat. It had more the texture of pudding instead of a mousse and the tapioca pearls gave it a whimsical touch. We ordered this as our appetizer! I encourage you to start with dessert!

Matcha Affogottos at Greater Goods Coffee Roasting Co
The matcha affogato at Greater Goods is SO good. The matcha ice cream has a coconut base that complements their matcha so well. Sometimes traditional affogatos feel like they treat ice cream as an afterthought, but I’m happy to report that’s not the case here!

Matcha Snow Ice from Snow Monster
Sno-Mo, previously called Snow Monster was Austins’ first snow-ice place! If you haven’t had snow ice, I like to tell people to imagine gelato and snow cones had a baby. Their baby’s texture is snow ice! Snow Monster has a wide menu of both snow ice flavors and fun toppings you can dress your snow monster. Pictured is the matcha snow ice, with taro pudding, strawberries, strawberry bubbles, and marshmallow.

Thai Ice Cream at Holla Mode
Holla Mode, a Thai Ice Cream food trailer on Barton Springs makes your ice cream to order. You can see what goes into it and pick what mixings you’d like. They have a vegan option as well! Pictured is the green tea ice cream with strawberries and mango. Mmm. I know it’s January but ice cream weather is practically year-round in Austin!

Green Tea Cake from Tous Les Jours
Hailing first from South Korea, Tous Les Jours expanded to the states in 2004. It’s a fun Korean bakery where you can find individually wrapped fresh pastries to bring home and also order by the slice. Their Green Tea Cake is a pretty little thing. They also have green tea Swiss Rolls and green tea macarons!

Matcha Dusted Brownie at Steeping Room
This rich brownie dusted with matcha is such a treat. Known for their healthy eating options and expansive tea menus, Steeping Room also excels at desserts. The brownie above is pictured as part of their Zen Tea Service, which comes with Napa Spring Rolls and edamame, the decadent brownie, and your choice of tea. You can matcha your matcha dusted brownie with a matcha latte!
