One of North Carolina’s most famous bakery’s, Sugarland creates amazing cakes, pastries, gelato and even frozen martinis, all using fresh and local ingredients! Located on Franklin Street, as well as on Cameron Street in Raleigh, Sugarland is a convenient spot to get an after class or work treat.
All of their treats are made fresh and from scratch daily. They hand-spin 24 different flavors of gelato every day that cover a variety flavors, so there is sure to be something for everyone! Most of their fruit flavors only include three ingredients: fruit, water and sugar!
They also brew their own blend of coffee from Oak City Roasters which has hints of chocolate, caramel and nuts. Sugarland is also the only bakery in North Carolina with a full bar! They serve frozen martinis made with their gelato in a wide array of combinations. I tried the strawberry-lemondade martini and it was both delicious and refreshing.
Some other great martinis that they make include Chocolate, Lemon Drop, Passion Fruit, Nutty Irishman, and Blood Orange – but I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the flavors! Sugarland is definitely worth a visit and regardless of what you get, you can be sure that it will not disappoint.
