The first taste of a sweet cheese danish from our favorite coffee shop in the morning, the sweet aroma of freshly made fudge at The Fudgery in the afternoon, the sweet sip of mangos, pineapples and your favorite tropical creations at Wet Willie's to end the evening… sound like a sweetly perfect day? We think so too! Your next sweet journey can begin and end at Broadway at the Beach and we're pretty sure this blog can be your guide.
If you're like us, our day hasn't officially started until we've had our coffee, and you can kick start any chilly morning with a warm cup of coffee or sweet cappuccino at the Social Coffee Shop. And, while drinking in the warmth, be sure to grab a sweet baked treat to enjoy along the way.
When you're ready for a cool down, nothing says cool like a stop by the ice cream shop! Ben & Jerry's has not one, but two locations at Broadway creating a double scoop of deliciousness with their natural ice cream and creamy concoctions. Whether you grab a cone or cup, you will be sweetly satisfied with your Ben & Jerry's pick!
Stroll past WonderWorks and over the bridge to your next stop, Kilwins, featuring the finest down home confections, and oh did we mention they have ice cream too (our personal favorite is the Chestnut Praline). Kilwins also offers seasonal favorites including hand-crafted truffles for your Valentine, caramel covered apples and holiday gift baskets for your favorite coworkers. This one stop sweet shop has it all!
After a few sweet treats, you may want a savory break? A trip down The Avenue to grab a burger or other flavorful entrée at Dave & Buster's, Hard Rock Café or Wahlburgers will do the trick!
As the sweet hunt continues, chocolate is at the top of the list and you simply can't go wrong at The Fudgery! With two locations, you can watch as they create hand turned seasonal favorites and classics right in front of you.
Any Simpsons fans out there? Time to head off to Springfield, Illinois, the land of The Simpsons a la, The Kwik-E-Mart. Across the Ripley's bridge and down a ways sits the cartoon icon next to the Aztec Theater, where you can grab a famous Lard Lad Donut and wash it down with a sweet flavor of your choice Squishee! Can't decide which flavor to get? That' ok, we recommend them all!
The final stop on our sweet journey and what better place to end than a place actually called Wee R Sweetz! Here, you can peruse through homemade salt water taffy as well as their chocolates, truffles, chocolate and caramel covered apples and more! This award winning shop is a perfect place to select a sweet for yourself or impress your sweetheart with a gift of goodies!
As you can tell, there is a plethora of delicious sweets to choose at Broadway and we haven't even touched on the delectable desserts at the restaurants, Four words… Ooey. Gooey. Butter. Cake.
Another time, another sweet blog!
