Audubon Park Sweet District

line of cupcakes

Audubon Park is an up-and-coming neighborhood located just south of Winter Park, north of the Milk District, and west of Baldwin Park. It’s home to many great restaurants like Domu, coffee shops like Lobos Coffee Roasters, bars like Redlight Redlight, and stores like Park Ave CDs. Most importantly, it has become a mecca for desserts and pastries in Orlando. If you have a sweet tooth, head to Corrine Drive and try all of these treats!

Dochi Donuts

A “dochi” is an American fried donut made with a Japanese rice cake called mochi. These donuts have a unique ring shape, making them easily torn apart to be shared. Dochi Donuts went from a pop-up tent in 2018 to a small storefront on the second floor of East End Market and has since expanded to a location right at the front of the market. Every location is locally owned and operated, with four other locations nationwide, including one in the Mills District!

They have over 15 flavors that rotate periodically, but you can always count on these flavors being available. Unless they sell out, of course!

  • Choco Churro: a cinnamon sugar donut drizzled with milk chocolate
  • Cookies & Dream: a cookies and cream donut drizzled with cookie butter, and sprinkled with Oreo pieces
  • Taro Pebbles: a traditional donut with a taro chocolate dip, sprinkled with fruity pebbles
  • Ube Glazed: an ube donut drizzled with a light sugar glaze

Gideon’s Bakehouse

Gideon’s Bakehouse was inspired by the bakery’s creator Steve Lewis, who purchased an antique cookbook from 1898 owned by a young aspiring baker named Gideon. The bakery initially had one goal: to make an extraordinary chocolate chip cookie. After 15 years and thousands of test batches, Steve opened their little 286-square-foot Audubon Park space in East End Market in 2016.

Their handmade cookies are massive, weighing at almost half a pound each, and are extraordinary indeed. The bakery has found immense success, with lines going out the door every morning. They have received dozens of awards like Orlando Sentinel’s “best dessert in Orlando” award and Boston Globe’s “best place in the world to get cookies.” In 2020, they even opened a beautiful flagship store in Disney Springs. While the original chocolate chip is a must-have, they also have coffee cakes and many other cookie flavors, including:

  • Peanut Butter Crunch
  • Cookies & Cream
  • Candied Walnut Chocolate Chip
  • Pistachio Toffee Chocolate Chip
  • Triple Chocolate Chip
