To get an idea of what Chocobeanz serves, take a glance at the bakery's purple walls; words such as "cookies" and "lemon tarts" are painted there in rounded white script. Alternatively, you could just glance into the glass display case where bakers arrange the treats after making them from scratch. Savory snacks are available too: chicken pot pies, snack wraps, and create-your-own sandwiches and salads are a few specialties. Pair your meal with a coffee, chocolate smoothie, or a smoothie made from fresh fruits, flaxseed, and other healthy components.

The bakers at DOCO take the old-fashioned approach with their donuts. Each of the 13 light, cake-like styles are hand-dipped and dressed in an array of traditional—and nontraditional—toppings. There's the strawberry-glazed and graham-cracker-topped Cherrygraham, for example, as well as the strawberry glaze and granola-dipped Strawberry Fields and the oreo-topped Cookie Monster. Additionally, specialty donuts are stuffed with fillings ranging from fruit to cannoli and boston cremes made from fresh ingredients. The café doesn't just offer baked goods, though—sweet treats can be paired with mugs of robust, locally made Ward Coffee.

At Kravings Frozen Yogurt locations, a large list of diverse flavors marries a large list of diverse toppings, all of which are sweeter than a honey pot. In fact, honey makes an appearance on those very lists—Greek honey tart frozen yogurt. Blueberry acai, chocolate, pumpkin, and egg nog also make an appearance, exemplifying the menu's ability to be both classic and cutting-edge at the same time—like Mozart driving a Camaro. The catalog of toppings is equally diverse, blending such stalwarts as cookie dough and kiwi.
