Five Daughters also offers paleo options, which are perfect alternatives for fans of Sprinkles’  gluten free and vegan cupcakes.

  3. Fox’s Donut Den: Since 1973, this classic venue has been satisfying Nashville’s sweet tooth with donuts and pastries. The cinnamon apple bread and glazed donuts come highly recommended at this Hillsboro Pike store. Additionally, their 5 a.m. – midnight daily hours makes this the perfect place for a late-night snack or early-morning breakfast.
  4. No Baked Cookie Dough: A few blocks away from campus is one of the first chains to hop on the cookie dough trend.

  5. Legato Gelato: In the mood for something cold and creamy? Legato Gelato has you covered. This Edgehill shop has a flavor for every taste palate, and all gelatos are made fresh daily. With spring and finals just around the corner, Legato is the perfect place for a refreshing study break.
