‘The Biggest Little City in the World’ has quite the foodie scene. This is not limited to savory options either, as many places offer delicious sweets in addition to savory snacks. From baked goods to chocolate and ice cream, we’ve curated a list of some of the best spots to satisfy a sweet craving in Reno, Nevada.
A family-owned and operated bakery with its roots in Hollywood, California, DoughBoys Donuts opened in Reno when the founder’s son moved to the area. If you would rather begin your day with something sweet, or if you’re looking to treat yourself, then this is the place to go. Procuring quality ingredients, the crew at DoughBoys churns out a variety of doughy goodness every day of the week. Cinnamon rolls, apple bear claws, peanut butter logs, maple bars, and apple fritters — this is a small example of what you will find when you visit.
If your sweet tooth is calling, then Dorinda’s Chocolates should be on your list. Dorinda’s is a chocolate lover’s dream with a variety of chocolatey goods made from the finest ingredients and real flavors — you won’t find imitation flavoring or preservatives in the products. Notable highlights include the toffee cream, which features toffee ganache covered in milk or dark chocolate and topped with crushed toffee, the Hub espresso truffle made with Hub coffee (a local coffee roaster), and the award-winning sea salt caramel dipped in dark chocolate and topped with a sprinkling of Malden sea salt.
As the name suggests, Sierra Nevada Chocolate Co. specializes in chocolate, making it another great spot for the chocoholics among you. Established in 1985, this chocolate shop didn’t open its doors to the general public until several years later. Today, they can be found on South Virginia Street in Midtown where they offer a host of truffles, including sugar-free and wine-flavored varieties. Local favorites include amaretto, cheesecake, Irish cream, peanut butter and merlot.
