That Hits the Sweet Spot

There’s something about the weekend that makes you want to break all the rules and indulge in a sweet treat.


Most everyone loves the convenience and predictability of Krispy Kreme, but here’s a short list of other sweet donut and pastry places to add to the list. These options are open on Sunday and serve coffee. Don’t worry about the calories, those can wait until Monday! We’ll see you for breakfast!

  1. Parlor Doughnuts located on Palafox in downtown Pensacola is a new favorite. With a hip retro vibe of an old-school soda fountain, Parlor Doughnuts is a fun stop before strolling downtown. There are a ton of options, great coffee, and unique specialty flavors like Turtle Cheesecake and Sandy Beach. Located at: 120 Palafox Place
  2. Maynard’s at two locations on Nine Mile Road on the northern side of Pensacola are raised and fluffy with unexpected flavors like Fruit Pebbles and Maple Bacon. Locations: 875 East Nine Mile and 2155 West Nine Mile
  3. Craft Bakery is a more sophisticated artisan bakery with offerings like Pain au Chocolat croissants, chai cinnamon buns, and cherry cheese Danishes. Craft also offers sweet and savory scones. All are made daily from scratch. Located at: 555 N. Davis Hwy,  Suite H
  4. Cinnaholic offers gourmet cinnamon rolls in wild flavors such as bananas and Reese’s cups or Campfire S’mores. Cinnaholic allows you to start with a basic cinnamon roll and add your choice of frosting and custom toppings. Location: 170 S. Jefferson
  5. Fosko’s Coffee Barre isn’t a donut or pastry place, but they do make an outstanding sweet crepe. You can choose sweet or savory, but we are partial to the strawberry, banana, and Nutella. And as always, Fosko’s serves up a mean cup of Joe. Location: 8 S. Palafox
