Dinner without dessert is like a foreign movie without subtitles—you can digest both, but you'll probably miss out on the good parts. Fast-forward to tasty endings with today's Groupon to Sweet Endings in Detroit's historic Penobscot building. Choose between the following options:
- For $11, you get $25 worth of desserts, coffees, and cupcakes.
- For $79, you get a continental breakfast for 15 people (a $175 value). Sweet Endings can accommodate extra people for $8 each.
The talented confectioners at Sweet Endings fashion mouthwatering sweets and midmorning feasts with a stalwart dedication to the two most important meals of the day: breakfast and dessert. Cupcakes ($2.95 each; $5 for two) entice appetites in a dizzying array of 20 different flavors, staking a claim on unexplored taste bud regions like Christopher Columbus's second cousin, Carl. Hardworking sweetsmiths hand-craft chocolates ($16/lb.) and truffles ($21 for 12) each day, and patrons can accompany these dulcet mouthfuls with sips of coffee or tea ($1.50). Groupon holders can also opt to feed up to 15 guests with a continental breakfast. The Pangea-sized smorgasbord includes sausage, hash browns, eggs, muffins, bagels, quiche, yogurt, fruit, and a Dear John letter to lunch.
Inside Sinful Sweeties, plumes of flour waft through the air, where they mingle with the tantalizing aroma of sugar.

The bakery gives clients a saccharine assist when celebrating birthdays, weddings, and talking their way out of a speeding ticket. Customers can order up party-starting quantities of gourmet cupcakes, homemade brownies, and specialty cakes. But it's not all baked goods at this shop—a selection of assorted candies subdues sweet teeth experiencing withdrawal, and rich smoothies provide daily doses of fruit and ice. Sinful Sweeties can deliver its handcrafted goodies to downtown Detroit, and the east and west sides of Detroit, Southfield, Birmingham, and Hamtramck.
