Katy welcomed at least seven dessert shops over the course of 2023, with one more planned for the first half of 2024.

Alchemy Bake Lab, a Cypress-based small business, kicked off the brigade of Katy sweets shops with its opening on April 1 and was followed by keto dessert shop Carbs Me Out in May—which doubles as a bakery and a gluten-free, low-carb grocer.

China and Japan are represented with Mango Mango Dessert and Uncle Tetsu, which offer sweet soups and Japanese cheesecakes, respectively.

Additionally, Houston-based doughnut shop, Drip’d Donuts is expanding with a new shop in Katy in early 2024.
