An afternoon in Safety Harbor, Florida

Whimzeyland, 1206 3rd St N, Safety Harbor, FL 34695

Got a bit of extra time in your day? Stop by this fun, free, wonky, roadside attraction that is the essence of whimsy.

I felt a little shy going in at first, but it is totally open to the public and you are free to roam about. The house has a lot going on, it’s overwhelmingly good. Take your time. One noticeable characteristic is the number of bowling balls.

Mosaic tiling and bottle trees are positively majestic.

Heck, they even worked in a little caricature of yours truly!

Even the neighbors are getting into the spirit, and the local flavor is leeching out into the streets.

So much more than biscotti. We ate so much more than just biscotti. But we ate biscotti too (the next day with our morning coffee – it was magical). The take away – everything looked so obscenely delicious and sounded so funky that we just ate so much. So what did we devour?

+Mutt cookies. They’re for humans. They have five freakin chips in them: butterscotch, semi sweet chocolate, white chocolate, peanut butter, and toffee….in a dark chocolate cookie. Mmmm.

+Lime coconut bars with dark chocolate drizzle. This place has the tangy fruit flavor on point, with sweet coconut and bitter chocolate. This was a favorite of mine.

+Stoners paradise bar. Those people know what dessert is about, so we had to give it a go. Chocolate, peanut butter, marshmallow, and who knows what else! It was insane, all over the place, indulgent, absurdly good.

+Pineapple lovers cake with coconut pecan frosting. This could have been the only dessert I needed – a perfect piece of cake! Filling, sweet, tangy, creamy, chunky, gooood.

It might be safe to say I am as addicted to dessert as I am travel.

Right across the street from Joey Biscotti’s is a divey neighborhood pub that just so happens to have a pinball machine! We happily rocked out on Avengers.
