A dessert spoon is a spoon designed, as its name suggests, specifically for eating dessert. However, it is also, for instance, used for soup or cereals and is similar in size to a soup spoon.  Dessert spoons have a capacity somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon – typically around twice that of a teaspoon. However, the main difference between soup and dessert spoons is that dessert spoons have an oval, rather than round, bowl.

In addition, dessert spoon(s) is/are usually above the plate or bowl in traditional table settings. As a result it is kept separate from the rest of the cutlery.  Alternatively, it may accompany the dessert when that is brought to the table, for instance.

As a unit of culinary measure, a level dessertspoon is equal to two teaspoons which is is roughly ten millilitres in the UK.

Previously, apothecaries have used dessert spoons as a measure of liquid that was equal to two fluid drams or one quarter of a fluid ounce.
