With Dessert (pronunciation: [ dɛseːɐ̯ ], [ dɛsɛːɐ̯ ], [ dɛsɛʁt ] or [ dɛsɛːr ]) is called in German-speaking countries the dessert or a dessert. It is traditionally at the end of a menu as a sequence of dishes.

Dessert is the French language borrowed, where it as dessert or desserte was used. It is derived from the term desservir as the opposite of servir for “wait” or “serve”. The dessert is therefore the course that was consumed after clearing the table.
