Sweet Treats in Vinings

I want to keep people updated on all things Vinings….including places I have tried to avoid…. There are three sweet treat places in Vinings that we have intentionally passed by for caloric and financial reasons.  Its at least $8 for my son and I to stop by at any of these places it seems.

ColdStone Creamery

Yoforia

CamiCakes Cupcakes

Cami Cakes is the newest sweet treat shop in Vinings, and they have wonderful combinations of flavors in their cupcakes.

The newest entrant is the CamiCakes Cupcakes at 4338 Paces Ferry Road.  (There was a cupcake place there before but I went once and the cupcakes were too small for the price.)

CamiCakes are large cupcakes and approximately $2.65 each…. and I’ve become addicted.

I have told many friends how deadly the salted caramel chocolates at Costco are and now I’ve discovered this CamiCakes Salted Caramel Cupcake.  They have many great combinations, the Pineapple Coconut is another one that I’m thinking about right now.

I have always loved Piece of Cake in Buckhead and have frequented there throughout the years when the occasion arises.  I still think Piece of Cake has the freshest cakes as they bake them right there and the smell is to die for!  But due to convenience CamiCakes may be stealing me away.

As of September 1, there’s a Piece of Cake store in Vinings!

Yoforia in Vinings is a healthy alternative to some of the other sweet treat places

Yoforia in Vinings is a healthy alternative to some of the other sweet treat places nearby.

I know Yoforia is the healthiest alternative, but I really don’t crave anything there and the three children I’ve polled don’t like it either.  They usually prefer the Coldstone Creamery ice cream or Cami Cakes as well.  But if you’re trying to eat healthy and still want a treat – Yoforia is probably the answer.

Most everyone loves a big bowl of ice cream on a hot day, especially the kids!

Now onto the ice cream, Coldstone Creamery has been here for awhile and most people know about it, but if you’re shopping in the Vinings Village or need a place to take the kids on a hot summer day, nothing is better than a refreshing scoop of your favorite flavors.

All of these sweet treat places are walkable in Vinings Village and I know many make the drive to Menchie’s (in Paces Ferry Plaza by Houston’s) for their yogurt as well.
