Smiles Sweet Shop, a family owned and operated dessert emporium, causes glucose-induced grinning fits with fresh, made-to-order confections and singular desserts. Today’s deal gets you and an after-dinner associate or peckish doppelganger a four-pack of the shop’s signature cheesecake winks, single-serving versions of the classic dairy-based treat.

Smiles Sweet Shop is open Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
