A little drive from The Colony south on US 41, right on Bonita Beach Rd. (west) and left or south on Vanderbilt Drive you’ll will find one our local gems and home to Royal Scoop. This some awesome homemade ice cream by a local Bonita Springs family, the Zimmermans. I love their peppermint stick flavor, but several in my Colony posse think the Butter Pecan to be a real contender for the crown. Some of our Colony tennis players throw caloric caution to the wind and order up the 3-scoop Royal Sundae, calculating that they’ve earned it! Where are they? Good ideas travel fast!
If you haven’t experienced Tremendous Tuesday Buffet at The Golf Club, Gracies Famous Bread Pudding should be reason enough. Frankly, when thinking decadent desert, I must confess that bread pudding wouldn’t have come into my mind until I met Gracie’s bread pudding, made from real challah bread, cream and the most delicious creme anglaise. Delish!
