Treat yourself with these must-stop sweet shops in Marquette County.
From delicate and crisp French macaroons to fresh baked goods like lemon lavender scones and salted caramel brownies, you’ll have a tough time trying to order just one or two treats from 231 West. But whatever you get, you’ll have no regrets.
Head to the little town of Gwinn and you’ll find big flavor at Towner’s Pastry and Chocolate Shoppe. Whether you order their classic Butter Croissants or a specialty summer pastry starring fresh fruit, you’re sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. P.S. If you make the trip on a Saturday be sure to try one of their iconic cinnamon rolls.
Holy Cow—if you haven’t had a sugar cone from Jilberts, you’re in for a treat! Their peanut butter Mackinac Island Fudge is the ultimate tasty-twist on a Michigan classic. But before you dig in, you gotta take that obligatory ice cream pic in front of our favorite inanimate cow, Jilly.
If we had to simply sum up Frosty Treats, all we’d have to say is “worth the wait”. We say this because there’s typically a decent line outside the Third St shop, but it’s a small price to pay, once you see the affordability of their sizes and their long list of flavors!
Donckers is the perfect spot to stop for a sweet treat and or a small bite to eat. Take one sip of one of their signature shakes or malts and you’ll see just what we mean. They also have an assortment of all your favorite ice cream flavors, fudges, chocolates, and more.
Froyo may not technically be “ice cream” but it is definitely the next best thing. With flavors like Strawberry Cheesecake, Tropical Coconut, Italian Cocoa, and MANY more, you can’t go wrong. Did we mention Yoop-Phoria offers over 25 toppings including various fruits, granolas, and candies—yeah, you just can’t top that.
