Our staff is so excited about all of the new shopping and dining options that continue to pop up along International Drive. The addition of the Coca Cola Orlando Eye in the I Drive 360 complex has turned International Drive into a destination for visitors to seek out during their stay in Orlando. We love that Vista Cay is so close to all of the action, and it allows our guests to be a part of all of the excitement on I-Drive.
Among the many restaurants and attractions in the I-Drive 360 complex is the famous Sugar Factory. The Sugar Factory is a celebrity hot spot and can be found in cities like New York, LA and Miami. Keep your eye out for A-Listers like Katy Perry, Drake, and the entire Kardashian family who absolutely love this place! Located right next to the Orlando Eye, this “American Brasserie” specializes in all things sweet. With candy inspired cocktails, gourmet ice cream sundaes and sandwiches, and over the top milkshakes, your sweet tooth will definitely be satisfied!
In addition to all the pages of desserts on the menu is classical American fare like burgers and sandwiches, as well as pancakes and waffles served all day! We absolutely had to try one of their signature “goblet” drinks, which can be prepared with or without alcohol. Served to you in a 60 oz fish bowl and decorated with candy, these drinks are outrageously fun! We suggest the Lollipop Passion, a tropical cocktail adorned with two rainbow swirl lollipops and a candy necklace. The drink is poured tableside, activating dry ice and completely filling your table with smoke. This experience was so fun and unique!
The Sugar Factory is also a full retail store selling desserts, candy, and candy-inspired items. Enjoy filling your bags with bulk candy and giant tootsie rolls, make your own pixie sticks, and grab one of their signature couture lollipops (bedazzled and so cute!). You can also order one of their delicious desserts from the counter and enjoy it outside under the light of the Orlando Eye!
If you’re craving something sweet and looking for an unforgettable dining experience, the Sugar Factory is the way to go! The Vista Cay Resort is only a five-minute drive, so our location allows you to experience all that I-Drive has to offer. Your taste buds and your belly will thank me!
