There’s no shortage of good dinning in Hoover, and if there’s a sweet tooth in your smile, the dessert options are mouthwatering. In fact, there are a few local purveyors that specialize in sweets, from ice cream to baked goods. Whether it’s a celebration or an everyday craving, the next time you’re looking for a sugar fix, we hope you’ll check out the saccharine offerings at these fine local establishments.
Bluff Park Ice Cream Shoppe
Spring is just around the corner, and we’ve already gotten a taste of the warmer days ahead here in Hoover. It’s about time for some ice cream. Overlooking Oxmoor Valley, Bluff Park Ice Cream Shoppe offers guests a varied and colorful selection of “super premium” ice cream. The Shoppe’s ice cream is made with more cream than run-of-the-mill ice cream, with a richer flavor and fuller texture. Conveniently located on Shades Crest Road, Bluff Park Ice Cream Shoppe is the perfect way to cool down after a long day of exploring Moss Rock Preserve.
Ashley Mac’s began as a gourmet to-go catering service, but now features its own café where guests can enjoy their offerings at leisure. They offer a substantial selection of café and bistro standards like chicken salad and club sandwiches, plus a whole garden’s worth of fresh salads. For many, however, dessert is the main event, with iced cake, triple chocolate brownies, seasonal mini pies, and more on the menu. If you want to treat your family to an after-dinner delight, or reward the office for a successful project, the mini cupcakes are an obvious choice. They’re sold by the dozen or half dozen, with chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla flavors. Ashley Mac’s popularity has spread since their catering days, and they now have four locations.

Based in Shades Mountain Plaza, the Joyful team prepares gluten-free baked goods with a surprising assortment of Paleo-friendly options.

Of course, you don’t have to count calories to appreciate Joyful’s spread, as these oven-made goodies are full of flavor.
