Dessert first is always a good idea in our book. When you’re on the hunt for sweet treats, few places do it better than these Foley hot spots for delicious desserts.

{ Day 1 }

Lunch – Step back in time and enjoy an extra dose of Southern hospitality and a side of nostalgia with a stop at Stacey’s Rexall Drugs & Old Tyme Soda Fountain. This 1929 soda fountain and pharmacy hasn’t changed much in its 80-plus years. The possibilities are endless. From milkshakes to malts and root beer floats to sundaes, you’ll find the perfect sweet treat for an afternoon pick-me-up.

Dinner – A locals’ favorite, you can’t go wrong at Gelato Joe’s. While the name says it, you’ll find much more than gelato at this Italian restaurant. Fresh-baked cakes and pastries fill their dessert cases. You may have a difficult time choosing. That’s just one more reason we encourage dessert first!

{ Day 2 }

Breakfast – For melt-in-your-mouth baked goods, plan a stop at Mrs. B’s Heavenly Scents Bakery & Deli for breakfast. Enjoy muffins and other pastries that are ideal for a morning fuel-up before hitting downtown Foley’s antique shops and boutiques.

Lunch – After spending the morning exploring downtown Foley, get dessert (with a side of lunch) at Yummy’s Bakery & Café. Yummy’s offers daily lunch specials, but the real stars are the decadent cakes and pies, including German chocolate cake and butterscotch meringue pie.

105 W. Orange Avenue • 251-943-3336

Dinner – When you want to go where the locals go, put Wolf Bay Lodge on your list. After you feast on fresh gulf seafood skillfully prepared by award-winning chefs, order up an extra-large slice of layered coconut cake or strawberry cake, or a chocolate éclair. The chef even prepares a dessert of the day, so keep your options open!

20801 Miflin Road • 251-987-5129

Late Night – When the “Hot” sign is on, there’s no denying a stop at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts for fresh-baked goodness. Open 24 hours, you can satisfy your sweets craving anytime.
