Satisfy your Sweet Tooth in Auburn-Opelika!
Mother's Day weekend is here! Treat your sweet mama to a local sweet treat at one of these divine establishments.
Each donut is made the old-fashioned way: handcrafted every day early in the morning to be served that day. Their donuts are made from quality scratch ingredients and feature homemade recipes for many of their toppings and fillings. Not only is their signature square shape one of a kind, the taste is too! Did I mention they have ice cream?
Crepe Myrtle Café:
Located next to Blooming Colors, the Crepe Myrtle Cafe offers a beautiful and relaxing environment (perfect for Mom!) to enjoy savory and sweet crepes, salads and sandwiches. Much of the produce used is grown right here in Auburn, and customers also have the ability to purchase farm-fresh items in their store. Be sure to indulge in their dessert crepes and other delectable treats. We recommend the Peaches N’ Cream Crepe – grilled whiskey soaked peaches, sweetened sour cream, brown sugar and candied pecans, or the Sinful Strawberry Crepe - sweet strawberries topped with sugar, cinnamon, whipped cream, and a splash of Strawberry Liqueur. Yum.

Located adjacent to Ariccia Trattoria in the Auburn Hotel & Dixon Conference Center, guests are welcomed into Piccolo by the roaring fireplace in the winter complimented by the sound of classic jazz on the weekends. Rated the number one bar by Alabama Magazine in 2014 and 2015, the bar is a great place to enjoy a cocktail accompanied by macaroons, gelato or banana tiramisu. The lounge offers a comfortable, clubby environment. Leather club chairs, a cozy fireplace and comfy banquettes serve as a relaxing getaway. Enjoy live jazz every Friday and Saturday night of non-home football game weekends.
Formerly Provino’s, Venditori’s is conveniently located off of exit 57. The name itself means Sellers in Italian – which is the owners’ last name. If you’re craving Italian food, there is no better place. After dinner, be sure to try their Midnight Chocolate Layer Cake, Tiramisu, Chocolate Mousse Cake, Cannoli Siciliana or another of Venditori’s mouthwatering desserts.
