Akron Empire Favorites 2014: Favorite Desserts

Akron Empire Favorites 2014: Favorite Desserts
by Joanna Wilson

You voted, we listened!  We asked our readers to tell us their favorite things in the Empire, and you responded with amazing ideas--some are our own old favorites, and some things new to us that we're excited to check out! We are rolling out the results of our poll each week through the rest of the Fall.  Thanks so much to everyone who shared their voices in selecting our favorite things in Akron.  To see the results of all the voting so far, be sure to click on the Akron Empire Favorites badge on the right hand side.

Voters were passionate about the Favorite Desserts category.
1. Made By Mike
2. Strickland's
3. Mary Coyle
Honorable Mention: The A-kronut available only at The Office Bistro (on N. Main St.)

I'm excited to see Made By Mike treats available at Crafty Mart this year--his booth will be at Musica/We Gallery on Sat. Nov. 29th.  I've also seen his caramels for sale at the café at the Akron Art Museum. To learn more about this winner, check out Made By Mike's website and Made By Mike Facebook page.

Strickland's frozen custard is a part of our Akron identity.  Though there are locations all over town, I'm still one of those people that drives to the east side's original location on Triplett Boulevard to enjoy my Stickland's in a waffle cone.  Check out the Stickland's Facebook page as well.

Trecaso's Mary Coyle in Highland Square is another institution in the neighborhood.  In addition to their old fashioned ice cream, the restaurant is also well known for their Italian food menu.  Check out the Mary Coyle website and their facebook page.

A great big shout-out also goes to The Office's A-kronut, a pastry sensation available only during their Sunday brunch hours at the Akron location.  I think the last one I had was German Chocolate--geez, my mouth is watering just thinking about it!  Check out The Office Bistro's Facebook page as well.

Thanks again to everyone who voted--and congratulations to all the winners!
