Flour Power Custom Cakery's stacked menu features all manner of flavors and frostings, from the chocojestic Classic Combo, which overloads light chocolate cake with mousse and fudge, to the Pudding Chiffon, an unassuming moist yellow cake hiding a valuable bavarian cream secret.

Mezzah dishes out a delicious tapas menu populated by shareable servings of Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and Greek cuisine. Pop the contents of a plate of garlic-and-chili-pepper-infused olives (a $5 value) into your open pucker for an aromatic appetizer with hints of sun-dried tomato before saturating already-marinated greek meatballs (a $6 value) in a dish of creamy greek yogurt sauce to cool down your palate. The Turkish-style meat-and-hummus plate (a $7 value) tops the creamy chickpea spread with a succulent crown of marinated ground beef, and vegetarians can delight in the Mezzah antipasto (an $8 value), a dish featuring assorted grilled veggies, feta, olives, and a noticeable absence of pasto. Because whistles cannot be wetted on tahini alone, diners and their dates can sweetly sip two glasses of house wine alongside their meal (up to a $6 value each) or apply the value toward a more expensive libation.
If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice’s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn’t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it’s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.
Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there’s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there’s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice—all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.
In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit—which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
In 2005, you were never sure where the Spence family's shave ice trailer might pop up—shoppers spied it at local farmers markets, carousers ran into it at music festivals, and stargazers swore they'd caught a glimpse of it streaking across the night sky. Today, the Spence family dispense its delicious desserts from not only their ice trailer but also a more permanent location: a cheerful stand named for their daughter, Alana. These newfound roots haven't affected the product, though; behind the counter, servers whip up the same frosty shave ices that made the family's original trailer so successful. They top the fluffy ice in tropical flavors such as guava, pineapple, and passion fruit, or blend multiple syrups to craft specialty combinations like Hawaiian Rainbow, Island Breeze, and Big Kahuna. These shave ices are served both plain and Hawaiian-style, which calls for ice cream on the bottom and sweet cream on top.
Each colorful confectionary centerpiece from Cookies By Design is crafted onsite from made-from-scratch dough using ingredients from local farmers. The bakers hand decorate each cookie bouquet onsite, personalizing select concoctions with signature icing themes and customer-dictated messages such as ”Happy Birthday” or "The Cookie Jar is Empty." Along with bouquets, cookies are baked and delivered in a variety of shapes and sizes ranging from sliceable cookie cakes to cookie baskets and can be embellished with any type of design, such as holiday-themed decorations or the official logo of a favorite sports team.
Someone stepping into a store dedicated to baklava might expect to be greeted by a display case packed with pastries. At Baklava King, this isn’t the case: not a single piece of baklava awaits potential customers. Unless, that is, they’ve placed an order, in which case Cevdet Ugur and his wife Sarka are most likely pulling it from the oven and garnishing it with chocolate sauce, chopped pistachios, or some other finishing touch before boxing it up and bestowing it on the customer at its peak of freshness. This utmost respect for fresh baklava is the crux of the Ugurs’ baking philosophy, which also calls for traditional Turkish recipes, domestic ingredients, and freshly squeezed lemon juice in the syrup that they drizzle over the tissue-thin layers of phyllo dough and customers who ask nicely.
