If you’re anything like us, sometimes nothing brightens your day quite like a sweet treat – be it cake, cookies, or another kind of confection. Fortunately, there are a variety of options just minutes away from Latitude. Check out our guide to three nearby bakeries in Lincoln that are worth a visit.
Do You Love Donuts?
You can’t go wrong with Hurts Donut Company. Just a 5-minute walk from Latitude, this popular franchise is known for its unique flavors and toppings, like the pink-and-blue frosted cotton candy topped with a tuft of real cotton candy, the maple bacon bar topped with real bacon, or the delicious cream cheese red velvet, which is exactly what it sounds like – a donut version of this classic cake. Hurts boasts that it’s open 25/8, as if that’s even possible, but either way, you’ll want to get there early. They sell out of their most popular flavors daily.
Are You Craving All-Things Baked?
Definitely pay a visit to The Rabbit Hole Bakery, five blocks northwest of Latitude. They offer a wide selection of sweet things to munch on, including delicious cake by the slice, multicolored French macarons, cookies, tarts, and breakfast pastries. They also do specialty adult drinks and cocktails, and they have a wide variety of cakes for special order – perfect for holidays, birthdays, and game days, or whatever occasion you need a cake.
Or Maybe You're Crazy For Cookies?
With two locations – one a 7-minute walk from Latitude – The Cookie Company has got you covered when it comes to cookies. This family-owned bakery in downtown Lincoln offers 21 varieties of cookies, including favorites like snickerdoodles, peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip, and oatmeal raisin, as well as a gluten-free option, banana nut, cranberry white chocolate almond, and many more. They also offer a variety of muffins and rolls, with day-old discounts of $.50 to $.75.
