Rachel's Bake Shop might be a small local business, but owner Rachel Broughten has built a national fan base. It's made up of folks like one Florida woman who calls Rachel's cake shooters "addictive" and a San Diegan who goes out of her way to stop by when making trips through Arizona. It's not surprising, then, that the bakery has won awards from both The Knot and WeddingWire for its custom confections, and was also voted among the Valley's best dessert spots in 2013 by ABC15 viewers. Rachel?a Le Cordon Bleu trained pastry chef?makes old-fashioned cakes as well as cupcakes, brownies, and push-up cakes, with a choice of cake flavors, frostings, and fillings. Specialty flavors include pink velvet and snickerdoodle, which can sometimes be made vegan or gluten-free.

At O Taste & See Treats, chefs and bakers reawaken childhood memories of family dinners and beloved desserts with a menu of cupcakes, pies, cakes, and savory meals made with local, natural ingredients. Each forkful of strawberry shortcake trifle or red velvet cake bursts at the seams with old-fashioned charm, like a love note sent through Morse code. Lunches and dinners can begin with bites of creamy mac and cheese or slow-cooked steak and end with inventive treats such as Argentinian dulce de leche cake or cup o'cake treats tucked into mason jars.

Kea Lani translates to white heaven, a reference to the pristine snow that goes into every serving of shave ice. Contrasting the dessert?s pallid key ingredient, the store?s colorful decor?picture pink walls, orange walls, a blue ceiling, and a mural of a surfer?shares the range of vibrant hues that soak into every shave ice. The expansive menu catalogs about 60 flavors in all, ranging from traditional hawaiian flavors such as Blue Hawaii and Li Hing Mui to classics such as wild cherry and banana.

Though the loaves you buy off the shelves at Wildflower Bread Company might be warm from the oven, they might not have been made fresh that day. That's not because Wildflower uses frozen dough—rather, its bakers are firm believers in slow-rising bread, letting their handcrafted dough rise for 16–24 hours before it ever sees an oven. So every morning, dough mixed and hand-shaped the previous day is worked into one of 18 styles of bread. The house specialties include classic baguettes, rye bread sprinkled with pasilla chilies, pretzels, or loaves worked through with rosemary and sea salt. These breads can be bought by the loaf or enjoyed as the anchors of a gourmet sandwich, an edible soup bowl, or a side for salad or pasta. The bakers also make room in their ovens for scones, tarts, and cakes, taking care of their customers' sweet teeth so they can stop chaining the table sugar to the coffee station.

There are two main tenets that the staff at Drizzled Chocolate Shop holds dear: that customers should be able to customize their orders and that treats just aren’t complete until they have a sweet drizzling of chocolate. From these two ideas the team has built an entire business, creating baked-to-order treats that can be customized to accommodate flavor preferences, desired packaging, and which type of chocolate will be hardest for roommates to find once hidden in your closet. For clients who need help deciding, the shop also has a roster of favorite treats such as chocolate-dipped strawberries, popcorn drizzled in milk and white chocolate, or chocolate-dunked cookies.

Operating under the mantra Flavor Your Life, Bahama Buck's sends its patrons on a tropical holiday with every sip of its gourmet drinks. Island-inspired decor outfits each Bahama Buck's location, and the business's approach to flavor as an art form?with more than 90 flavors of shaved ice?carries over to its smoothies, which are carefully blended from fresh fruit and juices. Hawaii's Kona coffee beans are used for Island House coffees, and island specialties, such as 100% natural juices, provide an afternoon pick-me-up without the pressure of negotiating with the intimidating children running the neighborhood lemonade stands.
