Carbs get such a bad name these days. Count them, the diets will tell you. Remember there are good ones and bad ones. Or, worst of all, they instruct you to avoid them altogether. If the gourmet cupcake trend has been indicative of anything, it's a hard backlash against a philosophy that tells us all the sweet, doughy things we love most are nutritionally sinful. Let's face it: foodies don't want to be preached at (unless the sermon comes with artisan-smoked, hand-cut, maple-sugared bacon). Orlando residents enjoy warm weather much of the year and as such, may be a little more diet conscious than most, but that doesn't mean they don't appreciate a nice piece of cake. Or pie. Or bread. Where do they go to get it? All over! For crusty-perfect breads and rolls, East End Market's Olde Hearth Bread Co. For classic, butter-laden French, it's Croissant Gourmet in Winter Park. Fortuna Bakery & Cafe keeps locals and tourists covered. And for those aforementioned trendy cupcakes? Try Blue Bird Bake Shop in the Audubon Park Garden District or switch it up with a new kid on the Corrine Drive block, P is for Pie, where you can enjoy the granny-centric goodness in multiple forms, from pop to whoopie to mason jar and more.
