Coffee & Treats in Erie

Select Local Merchants

Step into Ye Ole Sweet Shoppe's old-timey storefront, which evokes soda shops of yesteryear, and let the succulent smells of sugary snacks and baking bread amplify your appetite. Then gaze into glass cases at more than a dozen varieties of cookies, and choose one with a gooey raspberry ($.75 each), apple, or peanut-butter center ($7.25 per dozen). Ye Ole Sweet Shoppe's seasoned chefs also bake caramel cups ($4.09 per half-dozen) and filled brownie bites ($6 per dozen), the first bite of which releases warm, gooey fudge into the air. If doughy disks don't tickle your taste buds, go for a scone ($.90 each), muffin ($1.20 each), gift basket of treats ($18.99 plus tax for one dozen), or breakfast biscotti ($8.99 per pound). Ye Ole Sweet Shoppe encourages early risers to nab the first batches at its weekday 7 a.m. opening time. Visit the website to view a compendium of goods and pricing.

Open since 1950, Art's Grocery & Bakery sustains an extensive confectionery menu brimming with stacks of fresh cookies, brownies, cupcakes, pies, and more.

Submit to your taste buds' longings with a dozen handmade cookies ($3.59–$9 per dozen) in flavors such as chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, and peanut butter, or try a no-bake cookie, which caters to customers who are against cookie violence. Buy your coworker's friendship with an assortment of smoothly frosted cupcakes ($6.99 per dozen) and muffins ($1.25 each) or traverse the rich crust of the baklava ($1.25 each), filled with a toothsome trifecta of syrup, honey, and nuts.

Owned and operated by Chardon natives Mitch and Gail Hewitt, King Kone serves up classic ice-cream treats. Trimmed in green and pink, the original Grant Street location features a walk-up window, where customers place their orders for sundaes, cones, and shakes before enjoying their sweets while sitting in the sun at a picnic table, driving home in their cars, or dizzy-bat racing a group of cocky deer. Both the original location and a second location at Chip's Clubhouse also offer savory snacks such as popcorn, hot dogs, and pretzels in addition to ice cream.
