Quaint ice cream shop in the Winsor hotel. Excellent personable stop for a quick ice cream treat. Had some nice looking cup cakes that we did not try.

I looked forward to visiting this place the entire week before our trip to Americus! I was even more excited when we figured out it was connected to our hotel. We tried several flavors of the amazing cupcakes and they were awesome. Of course, in my personal taste, I liked some better than others, but overall the cupcakes were very... More

Gluten free often means going without, making do, and overlooking odd textures. Not so at Richelle's. The gluten free crepes are astonishingly light and tender--no sacrifice on taste or texture. This is a very welcome alternative for anyone who can't eat biscuits, pizza or sandwiches. The menu has so much variety, It is hard to choose breakfast, lunch or dessert... More

I stopped in here after going through the excellent visitor's center and settled down with excellent coffee and a snicker doodle to go over the brochures highlighting things to see and do in the area. Well worth the stop.

Amazing choices. Especially like the macroons. We live about 1/2 mile from Richelle's. Their baked goods are so tempting. My car just wants to go there every time I get in it.

We stopped and got some cupcakes, the icing made them look very pretty, the cupcakes themselves were rather dry and not very flavorful, more like a box cake mix, and the icing tasted artificial like store bought. Not what you would expect from a little bakery shop, more like from a Walmart bakery, not worth the cost

Lovely little shop right next to the Windsor Hotel. Make sure you get a tour of the hotel and stop and get your delicious cupcakes and cookies from Richelle's. We had wedding cake and 3 layer red velvet. So delicious!

My husband and I had cupcakes at Richelle's a year ago - and we've been talking about them ever since! (We live in Los Angeles and there are a lot of good bakeries out here but none of them hold a candle to Richelle's in Americus.) Fortunately for us, we got to have Richelle's cupcakes again when we stayed at... More

Description
This is a place for outrageous homemade sweets such as orange blossoms, pastries, cookies, bars and big gourmet cupcakes that people are falling all over each other to get before the shop sells out every day. Everyone enjoys the ice cream counter featuring hand dipped Blue Bell ice cream... Milk shakes, sundaes, malts or fruit smoothies are just a few of choice to pick from at this wonderful hometown bakery/ ice cream shoppe!
