Indulge in Dessert Day on the Bay!
Does the New Year have you stressed trying to achieve work deadlines, personal goals, and other obligations? Are you looking forward to the weekend and two days of relaxation? Well, it is no coincidence that stressed spelled backwards is desserts!
This weekend, you deserve a dessert day on the Bay! The Village Shops has eight decadent and downright delicious dessert stops to indulge in the ultimate day of breakfast desserts, desserts before dinner, dessert drinks…whatever you prefer! We’re talking cheesecake, chocolate cake, donuts, pie, martinis, and the list goes on!
Black Letter Coffee + Cafe
When it comes to dessert at The Village Shops there is no particular order you must go in because we can honestly say all will impress, but why not start with breakfast desserts at Black Letter Coffee + Cafe! Chocolate croissants, sweet crepes, pastries, cheesecake, mocha coffee, and more menu favorites. They give the term “Breakfast of Champions” a whole new meaning. Jumpstart your dessert day and metabolism at Black Letter, located on the north side of The Village Shops in suite 506. Call 239-280-0438 for more information.
The Village Pub
Step out of Black Letter Coffee + Cafe and walk a few steps down the walkway to The Village Pub, on the north side in suite 606. First and foremost, make sure you get a table outside alongside the sparkling Venetian Bay. Once you get that waterfront table, flip straight to the dessert section of the menu. The Chunky Chocolate Walnut Brownie has your name written all over it. Warm brownie drizzled with caramel sauce and sprinkled with walnuts, topped with vanilla bean ice cream or opt in for their signature Key Lime Pie with an undeniably yummy graham cracker crust.
Keep the dessert marathon moving with a stop at Fish Restaurant. Which will you choose? Cheesecake, apple tart ala mode, hazelnut chocolate cake, just to name a few. You can’t go wrong with any of these options so hurry up and head on over to Fish, located on the north side of The Village in suite 304. Call 239-263-3474 to reserve your waterfront table.
M Waterfront Grille
Once you leave Fish Restaurant, take the scenic route by the water to M Waterfront Grille, located on the north side of The Village Shops in suite 104. At M Waterfront Grille plan to order two of their signature cocktails, the Key Lime Pie Martini and the Double Espresso Martini, to pair with your Key Lime Pie and doughnut + holes sprinkled with cinnamon and paired with a side of icing. Simply mouthwatering! Call 239-263-4421 for more information.
Ben & Jerry’s
The vanilla bean ice cream served over the warm brownie at The Village Pub gave you a taste of cool, delicious ice cream but is there such thing as too much ice cream on a dessert day? The answer is simply no! Time for a stop at Naples’ only Ben & Jerry’s, located just a few steps outside the door of M Waterfront Grille in suite 212. We are going to rattle off a few flavors to show you why a dessert day would not be complete without Ben & Jerry’s…Cherry Garcia, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Salted Caramel Blondie, Strawberry Cheesecake. Grab a cup, cone, sundae, milkshake, or cake! Enough said, everyone is screaming for ice cream and rushing to the Village scoop shop. Call 239-434-5850 for more flavor information.
