Datz Dough #SweetPeek Event

A few weeks ago, I was invited to the #SweetPeek event at Datz Dough. Datz Dough is a bakery/cafe concept created by the owners of own of my favorite places to eat in South Tampa, Datz.


At the end of last year, I started hearing rumors that Datz was going to be opening up a bakery. I was thrilled at the idea because I have always enjoyed the creations that Datz comes up with. The dishes are always creative and amazingly delicious. I knew that the bakery would be just as awesome.

Since I first heard about Dough, I have seen a million pictures of delicious food from pastries to salads to specialty coffees. I have been not-so patiently waiting for this place to open.



When I arrived, I was offered my choice of beverage and pastry. I decided to try the bacon latte and a cinnamon roll. Now I know what you are thinking (I was thinking the exact same thing). A bacon latte … really? Can that be any good? The answer is yes! I was shocked at how unique and delicious the bacon latte was. It had a smoky, hickory fragrance and subtly sweet flavor. Oh and there are tiny bacon pieces in it.


Next time, I think I am going to try the Nutella latte. It sounds right up my alley and I heard it was amazing.


There were a bunch of different pastries to choose from. I decided to go with the cinnamon roll because I thought the sweetness of the pastry would go well with the bacon latte. It had a cream cheese based icing, which provided just enough sweetness to balance the bacon-y flavor of the latte.




While we were hanging out, some of the baristas brought around gelato samples and hors devours. The folks at Dough created unique flavor combinations of gelato that probably don’t sound like they would taste very good but they absolutely work. They also recreated some classic flavors like mint chocolate chip. I think my favorite gelato flavor was thin mint cookie because it reminded me of the cookies and it had cookie pieces in it.



Datz Dough officially opened on April 8th and I can’t wait to go back to try more pastries and coffee. The café also offers breakfast and lunch items.


In honor of their opening, Dough is hosting a Grand Opening Celebration on April 21st. All proceeds will be donated to the Children’s Cancer Center. If you are interested in attending, tickets are still available {click here}.
