Nothing Bundt Cakes
Nothing Bundt Cakes is a bakery in Athens that has cakes, cupcakes and more for any occasion. Athenians love their Bundt cakes, claiming they are some of the most moist and flavorful they have ever had. There are lemon, red velvet, chocolate, vanilla and more. My favorite is the white chocolate raspberry. Come by and get a variety pack or just one, you're sure to be back for more.
Ben & Jerry's
Ben & Jerrys is a staple in the ice cream industry, and that is for good reason. Located at the heart of Downtown Athens, there is almost no way you won't see it on a daily basis. They have all the classic ice cream flavors you love, plus some store exclusives that are a must try like Cinn-dough-rella. Try a couple samples before you order to find the perfect flavor for you.
Alumni Cookie Dough
Everyone loves cookie dough when baking cookies. Alumni Cookie Dough took that a step farther with safe to eat gourmet cookie dough. You can have it in sundaes, milkshakes, coffees and a lot more. Athenians love it because of how unique of a dessert place it is and it tastes amazing. If you go, definitely try the Snickerdoodle cookie dough in something!
This is a staple for UGA students after a night out on the town. They are open till 3am on Saturdays and 1am for every other day of the week, so they know their demographic! Their cookies are warm and cooked to perfection, it is hard to stop eating them. If you go definitely get a cookie with their ice cream, it is an unbeatable combo. After leaving the bars stop by Insomnia Cookies, I promise you will be very happy.
If you want a good bakery for bread and amazing service this is your place. Independent Baking usually sells out on the weekends, so you know it is good. The options might be overwhelming when you come inside, but everything is amazing, so you do not have to worry. Some Athenian favorites are the lemon poppy seed danish and the chocolate croissant. Next time you are in 5 Points stop by for some of the best bread in Athens or a sweet treat.
