Sweet Sensations is in an unassuming corner building on busy U.S. 17 in downtown Green Cove Springs.
It is a very popular place for lunches, and is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 3pm.
It has a small parking lot, but a city parking lot right next door has plenty of spaces if the restaurant lot is full.
When you enter Sweet Sensations, you will see a board with the daily specials printed out in magic marker. There is a batch of menus there for you to read, then you place your order at the counter. The usual fare is a good selection of soups and sandwiches, but they usually also have a hot lunch of some kind along with two or three soups. Off to the right is a glass case full of fresh desserts such as pastries, pies and cakes.
The decor is very simple and family friendly. The hot special when I was there was pot roast with vegetables. It was very tasty, and came with boiled potatoes, carrots and a dinner roll. A drink was included in the price, but I had water. I also had a cup of delicious chili. Someone at the table next to me was enjoying a Reuben sandwich and said it was fantastic. His wife was having something called an Outlaw Chicken Salad Sandwich. She also vouched for its tastiness.
The place had a nice lunch crowd when I visited at 130pm on a Tuesday. I will be sure to stop here again when I am in Green Cove Springs.
