When summer hits, the tone shifts. The kids are out, they always want snacks and sweets, and if they’re eating them, hey, why can’t you? Here are five of my personal favorite treats, because honestly summer is here and all that time for dieting has passed. Let’s be honest, it’s too late for the perfect beach bod, so let’s give (and dig) in.
The Rocket –Georgia Peaches in Space Milkshake
The Rocket boasts several mouth-watering milkshakes, but this is a personal favorite. First, it screams local yumminess. Peaches? I mean come on; they’re speaking our language. Second, this milkshake is totally healthy. Peaches are healthy, and therefore… ok so maybe it’s not.
The Catch - Blueberry Cake
I’m not a huge cake person, I’ll be honest. This cake changed my mind. One time I went to The Catch and they had run out and I learned my tough lesson, now I order it as soon as I get to the table, so they stash a piece away for me. Yes, it’s that good! Don’t believe me? Go try it!
The Cookie Shoppe – Baklava
The Cookie Shoppe’s baklava does NOT disappoint. This homemade favorite is rich, nutty delicious, and an authentic middle eastern dessert. Be sure not to miss it next time you stop in for lunch!
The Bread House – All the Bread Pudding
The Bread House has bread pudding, but they love to mix it up. You never know what spin they’ll put on it day to day, but I can guarantee it’ll be good.
The Flint – Georgia Peach Cheesecake
The new kid on the block is The Flint, a fine dining restaurant right next to Pretoria Fields in Downtown Albany. The food is amazing, but I’d argue that a standout item is the Georgia Peach Cheesecake. If peach cobbler and cheesecake had a child this would be the result, and it’s one beautiful baby. Go see The Flint, now open in Albany!
