The shopping center is super-convenient to this master-planned community on Jacksonville’s southeast side — like its neighborhood namesake, Tamaya Market sits at the corner of Kernan and Beach Boulevards, just west of Tamaya’s main entrance — and boasts a growing list of tenants.

Here’s a preview of one of Tamaya Market’s tastier new additions.

Sugar fixes and savory treats

Shipley Do-Nuts is known for its fresh, yeasty doughnuts, of course, but also for its coffee (can’t have one without the other) and its kolaches.

“What is that?” you might say of the latter.

A kolache is a filled pastry similar to a doughnut. It can hold fruity, creamy fillings, or sandwich-style fixings such as a sausage. Think pigs-in-a-blanket. Kolaches actually are Czechoslovakian pastries, and trace their Texas roots to 19th-century Czech immigrants.

Lawrence Shipley Sr., and wife Lillie founded Shipley Do-Nuts in the late 1940s, featuring a family recipe for hot doughnuts. Aside from kolaches and the traditional hot glazed yeast doughnut, you’ll find cinnamon rolls, bear claw pastries and flavored doughnuts of every color and taste.

How about a chocolate-iced, chocolate-cake doughnut or a cherry-iced, hot glazed with multi-colored sprinkles?

Sounds good to us.
