A Little Something Sweet

Everyone has a favorite indulgence — an afternoon frappé, a cupcake with swirled buttercream, a hot-from-the-fryer doughnut, a double-scoop cone of ice cream. Locally owned shops throughout Lexington make treats of all shapes and sizes. Scratch-made bakeries take custom orders, but they also stock display cases with fritters, cupcakes, cookies, turnovers and more on a daily basis. Some customers wait year-round for seasonal confections, such as pumpkin pies, king cakes and berry cobblers. Local coffee shops roast their own beans, so your morning cup is fresh and fragrant. Juices, smoothies and protein shakes provide a healthy, nutritious snack.
