Mary’s Mountain Cookies | Swirls and Pearls | Prairie House Home Goods
Our sweet tooth readers get not one, but two posts with options to sate their cravings. Sprinkled around town like jimmies on ice cream, these sweet spots are sure to brighten your day! Up first? Cookies, cupcakes, and candy!
Mary’s Mountain Cookies – 315 W. Lincolnway, Cheyenne
Fairly new to the scene, but quickly embraced by the locals, Mary’s Mountain Cookies fills the soft cookie void in your stomach. The generously-sized cookies come in a huge assortment of flavors, both classic and creative. Also featuring Keto (Chocolate Chip) and Gluten-Free flavors (Chocolate Chip, Snickerdoodle, M&M, Caramel Sea Salt, and Snickers). In the heart of downtown, Mary’s has your baked with love goodies with a side of ice cream to boot.
“Cute, clean, busy but fast service provided by friendly staff. Delicious cookies! A wide variety of cookies too.” – Alyx B.
Swirls and Pearls – 500 W 15th St, Cheyenne
Now featured in a brick and mortar location, this established bakery is not an unknown entity in Cheyenne. The two friends-turned-business partners have been doing custom orders for a few years under the name Swirls and Pearls and routinely sell out their delectable cupcakes at the Saturday Farmers’ Markets. In addition to their lengthy “every day” menu they also offer seasonal varieties too. Just a short jaunt from the center downtown, they are a welcome addition to the West Edge!
“Best cupcakes I've ever had! I've gotten up early two Saturdays in a row so we could get our fix before they sell out at the Farmers Market. Mind you, I have been watching my weight for over a year but you still have to live a little and this is worth the indulgence!! Highly recommend, and the ladies are extremely friendly and as sweet as their cupcakes!” – Cara M.
Prairie House Home Goods – 220 W. Lincolnway, Cheyenne
While sweets aren’t the primary focus of this downtown gift shop, it is a fun environment to buy vintage-style and difficult to find candy at a counter like you would have in Cheyenne’s early days. The shop is stuffed with shabby chic and farmhouse décor in addition to a wealth of Wyoming-made goods (many of which are local!) While the kids suck on Candy Pipes or chew their way through a good Slo Poke, Mom can browse the two floors of treasures while Dad picks out a Cheyenne t-shirt to wear back home. Everyone wins!
“This little shoppe has the most unique items you will find in Cheyenne! Stop in and take advantage of all the wonderful things Angela (owner) has for sale!” – Tamara K.
In this series, we’re highlighting some of the restaurants around the county that may be a bit off the beaten path, but are well-worth the stop.
