The Donut King

The Donut King is the donut place I have heard about since I moved to Central Florida.  Their flavors of donuts are delicious, Blueberry cake, cherry cake, butterfinger, oh my..

The Donut King is home of the Birthday donut, a donut big enough to fill a dozen donut box and perfect for every birthday boy or girl…or mom or dad! Check out their menu for other food choices too!

Donuts To Go

Donuts To Go is a small mom and pop shop in Sanford.  They take pride in that and it shows in all of their donut creations.  Stop by for a traditional glazed and a cup of coffee or choose from their eclectic flavors.  Maple Bacon, Strawberry Cheesecake, Oreo, and Fruity Pebbles are just a few flavors you’ll find on their menu.  Not a donut person? No problem, check out their soups, egg bowls, sandwiches, or burritos.

The Greenery Creamery

The Greenery Creamery is Orlando’s first artisanal ice cream boutique.  The Orlando location has teamed up with Orlandough for a combination that is simply delicious! Who wouldn’t want to try a donut topped with ice cream? There’s nothing traditional about their flavors, and I like it!  With plenty of dairy and vegan options everyone is sure to find something they like.  Gluten free sugar cones also available.

Kelly’s Homemade Ice Cream

Kelly’s Homemade Ice Cream has 3 locations to meet those ice cream cravings.  Experience their homemade ice cream through known traditional flavors, or step out of the box and taste one of their signature flavors like Mexican Chocolate or Cookie Monster. Non-Dairy options available.

Insomnia Cookie

Yep, you guessed it, they’re open late! Insomnia cookies has a delicious selection of cookies, cookie cakes, brownies and ice cream.  Top that cookie with a scoop of ice cream and experience one of their delicious wiches.  A scoop of ice cream between 2 warm cookies…you won’t be disappointed!  

You can make your own “homemade” ice cream at home instead of going to a shop to get it. My kids love it.

Nan and Pops Ice Cream Shop

Nan and Pops Ice Cream Shop is a new ice cream shop in Longwood.  Owned by, you guessed it, Nan and Pop who have lived in Longwood for over 25 years.  Their flavors may be traditional, but their creations are anything but.  Follow them on Facebook and check out their ice cream concoctions and the shakes that ooze with yumminess.

Nothing Bundt Cakes

From little bite sized bundt cakes to full tiered cake Nothing Bundt Cakes has you covered.  Satisfy your sweet tooth with their array of flavors.  Lemon, Confetti, and Chocolate Chocolate are just a few of their yummy flavors.  Gluten free is available at this location.

Craft donuts anyone?  Yes, please!  Orlandough is a bakery without a store. Crazy right? Nope, they’ve partnered with their local business friends at Greenery Creamery and Easy Luck Coffee and Bodega to stock and sell their yummy donuts.  Stop in and try them out or visit their website to cater your next party or have them spell out a sweet message for someone special. 

The Soda Fountain

I am not going to lie, just looking at this menu makes my mouth water! What’ll ya have? An ice cream scoop, a sundae, a milkshake, a float, a sorbet spritzer, egg cream?  They have it all, it’s an ice cream lovers dream. A local Orlando ice cream company makes The Soda Fountain’s Ice Cream and soda flavorings.  Don’t forget to ask about their vegan flavors.

Valhalla Bakery Orlando

Located inside Market on South, Valhalla Bakery is getting rave reviews. Their entire selection is vegan friendly and doesn’t taste it.  Their selection of cookies, cupcakes, pies, and cakes keeps people coming back for more. This location does not offer gluten free options.

Try one or try all of these dessert places in Orlando. A return trip will definitely be in your future.
