5 Places to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
After a full day of play in Park City (or completing a dull task) there's nothing like indulging in a bit of dessert. Whether you try to eat healthy most of the time or you're a professional sugar addict, these local joints will help satisfy your craving so treat yourself!
Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory
Choosing which caramel/chocolate covered apple you want is serious business at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory (510 Main St). As you might guess, you'll also find plenty of chocolate drizzled on rice crispy treats, whipped up into truffles, fudge, chocolate bark, and more. Ice cream lovers aren't left out either, you can order a cone full of it here as well even when the temperature dips into the single digits!
Java Cow/I Love Moo
For treats accompanied by quirky cow decorations, you can trust Java Cow Café & Bakery and I Love Moo. For pit stops on Main Street, hit up Java Cow (402 Main St) for a coffee, homemade ice cream and in-house baked goodies, like chocolate croissants. If you're out in the Kimball Junction area, you can still indulge in Java Cow's ice cream by hitting up its sister store I Love Moo (1626 Uinta Way).
Windy Ridge Bakery
It might be off the beaten path, but a stop into the Windy Ridge Bakery (1255 Iron Horse Dr) is totally worth it. Located next to the café of the same name, the bakery offers a dizzying array of sweets, including cookies, petite cakes, tarts, eclairs, croissants, and beyond. The breakfast pastries and chocolate raspberry chiffon cake are among the most popular items for visitors. These treats taste as good as they look, so be careful or you may find yourself over-indulging!
The Hungry Miner
If you love circular sweets with a hole, try out the new donut joint The Hungry Miner (1385 Lowell Ave) in Park City Mountain's Town Base. The small shop is one of the new offerings in town and specializes in two things: donuts and hot dogs. All the donuts come with frosting--chocolate, vanilla, maple, lemon, or raspberry--so all you have do is choose the flavor and a topping. Maybe the multitude of choices makes it difficult to decide because while we say, try the maple and bacon, the most popular choice is just plain vanilla and sprinkles. Note: This joint closes during the shoulder season, but will be open for summer starting May 25.
For chocolate lovers, we recommend hitting up Ritual Chocolate either at their café in town (1105 Iron Horse Dr) or on your next trip to Whole Foods (6598 N Landmark Dr). What's so special about Ritual? It's that small-batch, fair trade chocolate made from only cacao and cane sugar. Sip on a chocolatey drink (made both hot and cold) while munching on one of their chocolate bars or pick up some truffles, handmade by the chocolatier at Whole Foods location. While you may be able to stock up on Ritual's chocolate bars online, Mexican Hot Chocolate, Moose Tracks, Peanut Butter Jelly, and Passion Flower barks are available exclusively in Park City.
