With so much to see and do, you’re likely to work up an appetite exploring the Richmond / Wayne County area. Why not refuel with a morning, afternoon or evening snack from any one of the tasty bakeries and sweet shops located throughout Wayne County?
Along downtown Richmond, you'll find many treats to enjoy. The Bakery offers delectable cookies, cupcakes and crème horns to consider, but don’t miss the “thumbprints” — indented bite-sized nutty cookies filled with a dollop of frosting. Another Richmond Main Street fixture, La Petite Pastry Shop bakes up beautiful from-scratch donuts, cakes, muffins and pretty-as-a-picture French macaroons. Sweet Blessings rounds out its inventory of breads, donuts and baked goods by also serving breakfast along with mid-day soups and sandwiches.
Not directly on Main Street, but not far from it, the historic Depot District is home to its own collection of sugary temptations guaranteed to satisfy any sweet tooth. Known for its cheesecake and cake by the slice, brownies, and a cobbler of the week, LisaCakes makes a perfect sweet finale to any Richmond visit. If frozen treats are more your speed, order up a scoop, cone or fresh wafflebowl of dreamy Ullery’s Homemade Ice Cream.
Head west through Centerville to Cinnamon Spice Bakery for fresh pastries, donuts and sweet treats or Stone Hearth Cafe located inside Warm Glow Candles where you can bite into made from scratch pies along with an ice cream bar. After working up an appetite along Antique Alley in Cambridge City, you'll find freshly baked cookies, pies, cakes, and hand-dipped ice cream at King’s Café or drive-in and relax at the Hilltop Drive-In for sundaes, cones, floats and more. Stemming from the Greek word, 'Kafeneo', which translates to 'coffee house' or 'social bar and cafe', you can visit Cafe Neo for authentic Greek sweets including Loukoumades, bite size, fluffy, sweet honey balls that are deep fried.
