Open for the season, from March to October, you'll find plenty of sweet treats at Belt's Soft Serve. Not for the faint of heart, they serve up one of the biggest portions with the large cone on the menu. But, if you are looking for a bit of a smaller portion, with some tasty housemade baked goods, opt for the Brownie Sundae. Or take it up a notch with one of their belt buster options, from turtle to cookie dough.
In Amherst you'll find The Village Hive a small shared bakery and kitchen offering sweet and savory treats. On one side, you'll find the Swarm, serving up fresh meal options. On the other, you'll find this buzzing community kitchen space, serving up a giant variety of options - where you can order everything from beautiful (and edible) vegan roasted vegetable sourdough bouquets to local farm goods. For the sweet tooths, check out the cranberry orange walnut scones or the classic peanut butter cookies.
Insiders Tip: Just across the street, you'll find The Landmark. While they are a great coffee shop and restaurant, don't miss their brownie truffle cake or lemon bars.
With different types of sweets available depending on the day of the week, Main Grain Bakery is the perfect place to indulge a sweet tooth. Each week brings something new, and new items are always being added. Check out their newest addition, salted caramel nut bars or the boozy Coffee Liquor Mousse Brownies (featuring Ruby and Great Northern Distilling).
Ruby offers two locations, including a cafe in downtown Stevens Point that serves up plenty of sweets and delicious coffee. From their sweet or buckwheat crepes to espressos and coffee, Ruby has sweets that any lover will want to indulge themselves in. Our favorite is the housemade nutella, banana, and walnut crepe!
