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 Olde 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!

Lunch Yabba’s Wacky Snack Shack is a unique candy store experience for the entire family. They offer a full food menu featuring hot dogs, burgers, pretzels, nachos, and sandwiches. But you are there for the sweets, and Yabba’s delivers. They have ice cream, homemade fudge, and of course, LOTS of candy!

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!

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.
