European Pastries, homemade cake, ice cream delights, and cookies galore: there’s really no shortage of saccharine sweets for your family vacation to New Smyrna Beach. What you find at one local bakery, you may not find at another.
Below is a quick rundown of the top four bakeries in New Smyrna Beach, offering a wide spectrum of flavorful goodies to take to your condo rental – or eat before you make it back to the beach.
The Sweet Boutique
Location: 103 East Park Avenue, Edgewater, Florida 32132
The Sweet Boutique is dubbed “an uncommon bakery,” and it requires little imagination to see why. The Sweet Boutique thrives on a mix of cupcakes and brownies, with a nice scattering of walnut-filled honey buns, German Fruit Coffee Cake, and quiche made fresh daily.
As for the cupcakes, try to narrow your selections down from the Orange Creamsicle, Red Velvet, or Chocolate Peanut Butter. Select from the brownies and bars, including Chocolate Toffee, Choco Coconut Macaroon, and Turtle.
The Sweet Boutique also provides wedding cakes, custom orders, and cake design classes.
The bakery is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., but you should call before arriving to confirm they are open and available to you. This is a small operation. Call the boutique (386) 423-5477 and schedule an appointment.
Donna’s Canal Creamery
Location: 323 Canal St, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168
Donna’s is more of a café as opposed to an appointment-based custom ordering bakery. Donna’s is all about the combination of the coffee and ice cream. Grab a top-of-the-line espresso while partaking in a caramel-soaked cone or chocolate cake.
The bakery also makes different handmade items daily, from cinnamon rolls to sopapilla depending on how the mood strikes the bakers. It’s a rotating inventory of treats, keeping each visit fresh and exciting. Call the crew at (386) 410-4703. Stop in any day but Sunday, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Location: 557 E 3rd Ave, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32169
Mon Delice is a classic-styled European café and bakery. The team offers possibly the finest pure-hearted bakery in New Smyrna Beach. You walk in, get greeted, and select a pastry from the window. For pure accessibility and atmosphere, Mon Delice can’t be beaten.
The shop includes some French-styled favorites, like a Raspberry Delice, Almondine with sliced almonds under an apricot glaze, and the Boule a la Fromboise Chocolate and Raspberry Cake.
Call for custom orders or other information at 386-427-6555. Visit Mon Delice for authentic French sweets any day between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.
The Bake Shop
Location: 2120 S Ridgewood Ave #5b, Edgewater, FL 32141
The team at the Bake Shop keeps their minimalistic aesthetic front-and-center. The name of the shop can’t be misinterpreted. The bakers simply ask on the homepage of their website, “what can we bake for you?”
The answer is just about everything. The shop focuses on custom-made items for events, special occasions, or just what customers please. The result is a wide selection of potential goodies, from massive-scale wedding cakes to fruit-filled pastries. The team sells wholesale, making the shop an excellent place to visit if you have the whole family on vacation and you want everyone to dig into the highest quality pastries.
Stop by the shop Tuesdays through Fridays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Indulge in a local treat. Forget mainstays you can find anywhere, like Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks. Experience a taste of Florida living at these dessert shops and realize how utterly addictive it is.
