Shawn Shay grew up on the East Coast, feasting upon that region’s sandwiches, which rely heavily on meatballs, steak, and other meats. His future wife, Wendy, was enjoying California-style sandwiches, sprinkled with emerald fistfuls of veggies. In Shay’s Café, the two now combine their culinary passions beneath the eatery’s blue and gold walls, which glow in the natural light from floor-to-ceiling front windows. The light pierces the steam that rises from soups wrought from adventurous ingredients such as kaffir lime leaves, leeks, and fresh asparagus. The menu divides signature sandwiches by coast, with Eastern favorites including philly cheese and Western options laden with pesto, brie, and grilled salmon. Glasses of beer and wine form toasts, plinking occasionally like a xylophone player with only one mallet.

Fruits & Chocolate dips Mother Nature’s sweets—such as fresh and organic strawberries, bananas, apples, and pears—in tastefully arranged layers of gourmet chocolate and nuts. Other bite-size confections include dried mango slices, pineapple rings, pretzel sticks, and gummy bears, which can be drizzled with white chocolate and milk chocolate. Sweet teeth can order snacks in one-dozen or half-dozen packs that will be packaged inside signature lime-green boxes tied with purple ribbon to protect sweets from jealous produce they may encounter on the way home.

For 26 years, Yumygurt Frozen Yogurt has swirled sumptuous peaks of frozen yogurt alongside an array of Lappert's ice cream, sweet smoothies, and other icy treats. Nineteen yogurt flavors fill cups ($3.25—$4.65) with classic tastes, including swiss chocolate and original tart, as singular flavors such as banana cream and peanut butter keep taste buds on their toes. Several sugar-free varieties lighten sucrose loads, forging a health-minded treat similar to the chocolate jacuzzis at the end of every marathon. Once flavors are selected, an array of 18 toppings crown frozen confections with choices such as chopped nuts, chocolate chips, and strawberry sauce. Locally made Lappert's ice cream also caps cones with 16 scoopable flavors as straws sip sweetness from frozen drinks and specialty coffees.

Shunning saturated fats, high-fructose corn syrup, and artificial ingredients, the dessert experts at Marshmallow Mischief sate sweet teeth with a variety of all-natural, low-calorie confections made with gourmet marshmallow and organic, crispy brown rice, along with gluten-free choices. Eight delectable bites nestle in long, elegant Guiltless Pleasures boxes waiting to ambush taste buds with dark cocoa, masala spiced tea, smooth vanilla, and cinnamon-ginger-chunk flavors and longing for a ninth treat to field a candy baseball team. The Tropics to Tuscany set hosts an international sweet summit of coconut-dark-chocolate, hazelnut-milk-chocolate, cinnamon-peanut-butter, and white-chocolate-macadamia-nut pieces. Confectioners select a chorus of 16 pieces that features all eight scrumptious flavors in the Crispy Collection Favorite variety pack so that each recipe gets an opportunity to serenade eaters with its dulcet notes. The sweets are made in a facility that also processes nuts and soy, but eschew gelatin and wheat, making Marshmallow Mischief's boxes excellent gifts for friends with dietary restrictions or gluten-intolerant reindeer.

After catering for two years, Blackberry Soul Bakery and Cafe finally settled in a brick-and-mortar building, where owner-baker Rene prepares her Southern-influenced cakes, cookies, and savory snacks for visitors. The 2004 winner of the Taste of the Bay award and a requested favorite of the 100 Chefs Can Cook United Negro College fundraiser, Rene applies plaudit-earning skills when mixing fresh butter, real vanilla beans, just-harvested wooden spoons, and a few of her grandmother's recipes to whip up delectable, tooth-ready treats. She specializes in sweet-potato pie, pound cake, oatmeal cookies, and cobblers, though the piping-hot menu also includes cakes, cupcakes, and puddings. Red velvet cake supplies means of satiation for sweet teeth, and two types of cornbread furnish the means of satiation for teeth made out of bread. The caf? takes custom orders for pickup or delivery, and Rene accommodates customers out and about by supplying treats at many local jazz festivals and community events.
