Part art gallery, part cocoa bar, Artfully Chocolate was established in 2007 when owner Eric Nelson quit his job as an executive in order to pursue his artistic passions. Needing a little something extra to draw attention to his shop and unwilling to sound a tornado siren after every purchase, Eric called on the services of friend and chocolatier Rob Kingsbury. Kingsbury instantly infused the colorful gallery with the sweet allure Eric was seeking.

Today, the duo's handiwork takes center stage inside two different locations: Eric's masterpieces parade across the walls, and Rob's expertise reveals itself in sips and bites of decadent drinks and pastries. They also host tasting classes, including a wine-pairing class and chocolate-tasting class.

At Occasionally Cake, pastry chef Sabrina Campbell gets pretty bold with her cupcake flavors. So it may not come as a surprise that one of their bestsellers is called Everything But The Kitchen Sink. There's a lot going on with this vanilla cupcake?it's filled with peanut butter, chocolate, and butterscotch chips, dipped in caramel, iced with peanut butter frosting, and topped off with Heath bits. Other cupcakes, meanwhile, range from the Fuzzy Navel?an orange cake with peach buttercream?to the Grasshopper, a chocolate truffle cake crowned with mint-Oreo buttercream and capable of leaping several feet if startled. Sabrina also crafts cakes for special occasions such as weddings and birthday parties.

Since the first Philadelphia Cheesesteak Factory opened its doors in 1993, its chefs have plied patrons with delicious cheesesteak sandwiches, burgers, chicken wings, pizzas, and onion rings. Like Philadelphia's embassy in downtown DC, the deli is an enclave of the City of Brotherly Love near the nation's capital, serving up tasty Philly-style street food of meaty sandwiches and piping hot pizza. Diners wrap their hands around savory meatball grinders, chow down on ham-and-cheese strombolis, and sink their teeth into chicken subs and cheesesteaks loaded with peppers, cheese whiz, fried onions, and mushrooms.
