fragrant aroma of the luscious donuts cooking every morning and afternoon. They offer a wide array of donuts and they don’t have the same commercialized taste that you might find at a grocery store or large donut chain, they have a very down to earth home cooked taste that would remind anyone of grandma’s house with the very first bite.

The green farm style half door is always open, allowing you to see just enough to realize what is inside looks as good as it smells. If you love the taste of a fresh glazed cake style donut, or if your favorite is a white powdered sugar covered donut with raspberry filling you are in luck because they are made fresh right in the donut Friar kitchen daily. We have always treasured Fridays because these are the days that they make their famous chocolate, glazed crullers that are tasty enough to break even the strongest  of diet will powers. If you can’t wait until Friday you can special order them any day of the week and they will have them ready for you either that afternoon or first thing in the morning.

A freshly brewed cut of coffee or hot chocolate is always brewing and the perfect side kick for any type of donut you might choose, and if donut’s aren’t your thing they also have cookies and muffins baked fresh daily that are also available at the Donut Friar. You can relax at one of the small tables downstairs or venture to their second floor and sit down and enjoy your snack with a book or the newspaper. It makes for a wonderful escape from

It is the small nooks and uniquely rounded places like the Donut Friar that give Gatlinburg its charm and keeps people coming back year after year. So if you happen upon the Donut Friar and the line is long, just sit outside by the fountain or journey around to a few other shops if you like, but make sure you come back because they are definitely well worth the wait!

The Fudgery of Gatlinburg Tennessee

Some days it’s hard to ignore that little voice inside of you begging you to cheat on your diet and soothe that sweet tooth, and what better way to do so than with fudge. Along the busy strip of Gatlinburg is a small quant store filled with all of the sweet treats that children and adults alike dream of. From their specialty fudges to their assortment of candy apples, they even have ice cream and smoothies, but even that isn’t what makes this shop unique. The Fudgery of Gatlinburg not only offers the best tasting fudge in town but they make it the way fudge should be made, old-fashioned, fresh, and with charm.

 

There are 19 different flavors of fudge at the Fudgery, in Gatlinburg TN.

When you walk into the Fudgery you are offered a free sample of any of their incredible fudges, which can be a difficult decision between over a dozen different fudges from Extraordinary Chocolate, to Maple Nut, even Cookies ‘N’ Cream. After you have entertained your taste buds, you are in for a show!

The candy makers at the Gatlinburg Fudgery put on a one of a kind Fudge show just for you! As they make a fresh batch of fudge on the marble slabs just as it has been done since 1979, the candy maker announces the fudge show by ringing a bell and gathering the audience. You can then watch as the  candy maker put on a show by singing songs about fudge and performing the famous “chocolate rainbow” by smacking the fudge with the paddle used to turn it and then pulling it up quickly. Watching the fudge be made right before your eyes is exciting, but not as exciting as tasting it! The Fudgery’s fudge taste so incredible it will definitely hit the spot!

Not only does The Fudgery have fantastic quality, and great service, but it has great deals too! Each of the Fudgery’s half pound slices is only $7.99 but that not even the best! If you buy three slices you get the fourth free, four slices and you get two free slices, and for all those with that un-controlable sweet tooth purchasing ten slices gets you a free candy maker! Now that’s a deal!

Life According to Jake, The Village in Gatlinburg TN.

Life According to Jake, The Village in Gatlinburg, TN.

If you follow the trail around the water fountain in The Village in Gatlinburg you will find some really amazing shops. One of our favorites is called Life According to Jake, it isn’t just because of their prices that we love this shop. We love the calm and relaxing atmosphere and we love the fact that they are also animal lovers! They have everything in the shop from cups for hiking to toys for your puppy, we especially love the sticker selection they have since we love to decorate our rear windows with every hobby we take part in;-). Life According

to Jake is a very surprising breath of fresh artistic air, since they are not filled with every type of tourist trap type of paraphernalia. They have things you can actually use once your are back home, or for that matter they have things you can use while your on vacation like pj’s or back packs to carry everything you bought while your on your trip back home.

It’s very easy to find Life According to Jake, just follow the path to the right around the water fountain in the center of The Village. If you follow it all the way around and turn down the pathway on the right you will immediately see the entrance to Life According to Jake on the left. The sign outside the entrance is unmistakable and so are the unique items you will find inside. My daughter and I have traditionally bought toys for our dogs there and we also got her cute pink water bottle for school at the shop last year.

One of my favorite early morning coffee mugs also came from Life According to Jake and I can say that I truly enjoy the feel of my very favorite mug every morning. If you are looking for a gift to bring to family or friends that will make them think of you every time they use it, I highly suggest you buy one of these to take home with you. It is an easy reminder of a truly laid back time and lifestyle that I am sure your friends or family members will enjoy and think of you with every use. I can’t say enough about their colorful mugs either, I know they have saved me a thousand times from spills in my car.

Life According to Jake, Gatlinburg TN

Life According to Jake is pretty laid back in Gatlinburg TN.

My daughter and her friends really love the knit animal hats they have in the shop and these seem to also be all the rage right now with the kids and adults alike. You can find all types of quirky gifts that you or friends and family will actually treasure after the trip to Gatlinburg is over. All the prices are very reasonable and not at all over inflated so anything you decide to purchase will fit nicely into anyone’s budget. I can’t begin to tell you how many times we have come to downtown and underestimated how chilly the mountain winds can be, the hats and gloves at Life According to Jake fit my budget and they are always very colorful so my nine-year old daughter or her friends always love them even when there were last-minute purchases. My teenage sons have their rooms covered in Life According to Jake wall hangings, they think it is just too cool to dress our little dogs in the ear muffs and scarf

like the wall hangings in the shop. I am not really sure when Sinjin got his first wall hanging from Life According to Jake, but I am very certain that when he decides to look for another one he will got to our little shop in The Village here in Gatlinburg.

I myself am crazy about the stickers, you will find all kinds of them on the back window of my car, and I love to give them to my kids. It makes it very easy to identify my car when I am parked in massive parking lots and I get to dress my otherwise boring rear window with all the colors of the Life According the Jake rainbow and show how much I love my own little dogs at the same time. We love this shop so much and the prices are so awesome that it has made our top ten list, we hope that when you come to Gatlinburg you will visit Lie According to Jake and take something memorable home with you from your trip. It is sure to be a fun experience with plenty of ambience since it is located in The Village.

There is a less known entrance to the Village in the rear of the shops, if you turn at the light at the corner where Subway is onto Cherokee Orchard Rd. you can park at Pi Beta Phi for a nominal fee, or you can park at the parking lot just behind The Village. The sidewalk leads straight into the back

side of The Village and if you follow the brick path back toward the big fountain just past the Doughnut Friar and turn to the left you will find Life According to Jake down the walkway on the left.
