Gelato jockeys at The Sweet Spot scoop flavors such as chocolate, Oreo, and mango by the cup or quarts. Frozen-yogurt flavors ranging from vanilla to strawberry-kiwi swirl into containers, and shaved ice tantalizes palates with low-fat fruit or fruit-and-gelato combos. Plentiful 16-ounce smoothies round out the eatery's coterie of frozen treats, while a wealth of soft drinks such as Gatorade and Snapple quench thirst more effectively than licking dew off the grass. Guests craving an alternative to frozen treats can scarf down one of The Sweet Spot's ham or turkey paninis, which come paired with chips and a pickle.
Caribe Cafe's chefs describe their classic Cuban cooking style as a fusion technique, combining methods and recipes from Spain and Africa with the ingredients of the Caribbean. Nothing exemplifies this combination better than oxtails with white rice and beans, a staple of island diets for years. The chefs, though, particularly specialize in sandwich making, incorporating spiced chicken or slow-cooked pork into sandwiches layered with cooked onions and mojito sauce.
Light streams in through the floor-to-ceiling windows at the front of Glazed Doughnuts & Cafe, glinting off cushy high-backed chairs and sleek wooden tables before mingling with the crystals in the ornate chandelier. Before taking a seat or levitating next to the bookshelf, customers can peruse the mouth-watering menu, selecting treats including tantalizingly fresh scratch-made doughnuts, croissants, and muffins, carefully stacked sandwiches, and draughts of energy-boosting coffee.
At Bamboo Pho & Springroll, fragrant steam rises from large bowls of pho noodle soup filled with beef, chicken, or seafood. These bowls have earned notice from the Star-Telegram's DFW.com website, which named the restaurant’s pho one of the Five Hottest Dishes in DFW for couples to share. In another review, DFW.com professed to be "in love" with the pho’s "warm, complex flavors."
In addition to Vietnamese dishes such as pho and spring rolls, the restaurant dishes out Asian fusion cuisine such as lo mein, Korean barbecue ribs, pad thai, and steamed jasmine rice.
Though the cuisine leans toward the traditional, the decor is sleek and modern. Beneath high ceilings, a curved bar with glossy stone tiles lines up refreshing cocktails. The nearby hostess stand lights up with a chandelier whose beads resemble a fuzzy dandelion just before its seeds are whisked away by a breeze. All surfaces, from the bar to the tables are topped in granite, adding to the modern feel while providing protection from diners who like to cut their meat with hacksaws.
