Here is the first of what I hope will be many posts highlighting some of our favorite spots in Pensacola. The longer we live here and explore the more we discover and are pleasantly surprised by how much Pensy has to offer. If you are one of our friends or family and are coming down at some point to visit we can't wait to take you to some of these places. If you are just looking for fun things to do in Pensacola then I hope this is helpful. Cheers to gallivanting!
Growing up we always ate pretty healthy in our house, with only a few exceptions. One of those exceptions was for Pillsbury Grand cinnamon rolls, which my mom rolled out (hah see what I did there?) on special occasions like weekends my brother and I were home from boarding school, or holiday mornings. I have a weakness for cinnamon rolls, but no matter how many I have tried I have never found any that compare to the Pillsbury rolls. (Generally I am very anti-processed food, but I do make an occasional exception for these as well as box cake mix. Sue me. Im human.) That is, until I tried a cinnamon roll at the Bodacious Brew, in downtown Pensacola, which turned out to be the best cinnamon roll I have ever had.
Located at the end of 407 C S. Palafox St, the Bodacious Brew is coffee and tea shop that serves breakfast, lunch, assorted treats and pastries, and gelato as well. They have a beautifully curated tea collection, expresso bar, and multiple brewing options for drip coffee. The service is great, and there is a generous seating area with tables and counters perfect for coffee dates, meetings, or workspace. The breakfast menu includes things like breakfast wraps, "bodaciously grits" with roasted corn, green onion, gouda cheese, and gremolata olive oil, and of course--cinnamon rolls. Get there early to grab one of these perfectly flaky on the outside-gooey on the inside buns, and you will thank me.
While in the area, pop into the Bodacious Brew's sister store, The Bodacious Olive, and sample a few of the olive oils from their vast collection, or peruse the specially curated wine and cheese. Then head upstairs to the SoGourmet kitchen store, which is also owned by the same people, and explore their incredible kitchen wares. Between the three shops you could easily spend an afternoon indulging your foodie fantasies! Confession: I've done it.
