Since I moved to Michigan for college, I have been able to explore a new state and try new food. Today I wanted to share 3 of the best places I have been able to try that are located near Grand Rapids! Everyone loves a good sweet treat, right?
One cute and delicious place I tried was The Cakabakery. The store itself is oh so cute and the baked goods are baked fresh! They had delicious looking cookies as well, but my friend and I went with a chocolate cupcake with cream cheese icing. And it was a great decision because it was so good!
Are you even a blogger if you don’t eat macarons on a regular basis? I haven’t been able to get a really good macaron in the town where I live, but when I moved to Michigan I decided to search for a place that sells delicious macarons. Luckily, a good friend introduced me to Le Bon Macaron, and they were SO GOOD. The birthday cake flavor (the cute turquoise ones!) were my favorite, but I enjoy every one I tried.
They honestly have SO many flavors to choose from too, and I am looking forward to going back and trying more in the years to come. Also, the inside of the shop is decorated to look like Paris, so it is such a fun place to sit in as well!
Lastly, I tried Jersey Junction, which is a seasonal ice cream shop. It is so delicious, and even if you order a small you get quite a bit of ice cream. I anticipate many more ice cream runs here as the weather gets even warmer. And if you aren’t able to stop in sometime soon, don’t worry because they have a virtual tour on their website so you can see how quaint it is inside!
