Ellen’s Sweets and Treats began its sweet journey in 2009, blossoming from Ellen’s passion for baking. What began as a search for the perfect cake for an event evolved into a thriving cottage bakery. Her business truly took flight upon returning to Sebastian in 2010. Since then, Ellen has been delighting friends and family with custom cakes, chocolates, candies, and her newfound expertise in fudge-making. Taking over The Marketplace Fudge & More retail space in April 2023, Ellen has become a cherished part of the community, serving up fresh, locally made treats. Her love for baking, inherited from her mother, infuses every creation, and her commitment to excellence in everything she makes.

Messy Buns – Vero Beach, FL

Messy Buns, the brainchild of Angela Novak, is renowned for her exceptional establishments in the community. From being the original owner of Southern Social to the current hot spot Filthy’s Fine Cocktails, Angela’s newest venture, Messy Buns, promises to elevate your taste buds to new heights. These custom-made, from-scratch cinnamon buns are nothing short of spectacular. Lightly baked to perfection, they boast a delightfully soft and chewy texture that transforms into pure magic when gently heated for a mere 15 seconds in the microwave. She offers classic buns and a few specialty buns too, that change weekly. At present, Angela exclusively accepts orders online via her website, with pick-up available once per week at Filthy’s Fine Cocktails.

Tasty-O Donuts has been a beloved fixture in downtown Vero Beach since 1972, delighting locals and visitors alike with their mouthwatering creations. Owned by John “Y” Heng, this iconic shop has been a hub of activity, churning out an impressive 300 dozen doughnuts from Monday through Thursday and a staggering 500 dozen from Friday through the weekend. However, recent events have catapulted Tasty-O Donuts into the spotlight even more. A viral post in a popular Facebook group sparked a community-wide outpouring of support for this cherished local gem, resulting in long lines and sold-out treats by 9:30 am. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, Tasty-O Donuts persevered, keeping their interior closed for safety reasons. However, responding to overwhelming customer demand, they have recently made the decision to reopen their dining room, allowing patrons to once again savor their delicious doughnuts, alongside freshly brewed coffee and breakfast sandwiches, in the cozy ambiance of the shop. Tasty-O Donuts continues to be a beacon of community spirit and culinary excellence in Vero Beach, where every visit is a delightful celebration of homemade goodness.
