Determined to produce menu items made from the best all-natural ingredients possible, Swiss Delices bakes its decadent dainties without the use of preservatives, high-fructose corn syrup, or fruits that aren't pesticide-free. When available, the pastry shop supports local growers to craft its made-from-scratch goodies, which has been a great boon to the Bay Area's struggling cupcake farms. Guests can kick-start their mornings with butter croissants ($1.95), pecan sticky buns ($2.95), blueberry danish ($2.75), or apple strudel ($2.80). Swiss Delices offers freshly brewed organic coffee to help frosting-filled mouths regain flexibility. Linzer cookies ($2.25), fruit tartlettes ($3.95), and Zeus's Sin ($3.50), butter cookie shells that gently cradle the Grecian god's Achilles heel—hazelnut ganache—are all baked from scratch daily. For those who favor salt over sugar, there is a savory selection of sandwiches, such as goat cheese and pesto ($6) and curried chicken with pineapple ($6.50), to appease multi-tiered appetites. Today's Groupon is good for everything on Swiss Delices's menu, and the staff will gladly hand out gift cards to those who don't spend their entire balance in a single visit.

Every day at more than 770 locations, Jamba Juice proves that good nutrition can be both convenient and delicious. Since the beginning, the company has based its philosophy on choosing whole fruits and all-natural ingredients over artificial flavorings and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and artificial trans fats, and it makes additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.
Although Jamba Juice is serious about using wholesome ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate. Whole fruits and veggies can be blended into an extensive menu of great-tasting smoothies and freshly squeezed juices. But Jamba Juice?s commitment to keeping healthy eating simple informs its solid-food options, too. Customers can kick-start their morning with a steaming bowl of slow-cooked, steel-cut oatmeal, or stay energized throughout the day with six varieties of Energy Bowls: nutrient-rich blends of whole fruit, Greek yogurt or soymilk, and an assortment of dry toppings and fresh fruits.
In addition to nourishing and energizing the human body, Jamba Juice fights childhood obesity by sponsoring Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative encourages fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active?which they can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
At Nubi Yogurt, customers decorate blends of self-serve frozen yogurt with seasonal fruit slices and slivers of chopped-up candy. Georgia-peach- or pineapple-flavored yogurt waits for a complimentary showering of kiwi slices and mocha beads, while café-latte yogurt perks up customers with caffeinating chunks of Snickers or Kit-Kat. Most of the shops’ smooth, sinful flavors are fat-free, and are made with live-cultured probiotics that can help improve digestion. Each Nubi location boasts a bright, contemporary atmosphere with wireless internet, satellite radio tunes, and sleek tables polished enough to admire your new fro-yo moustache in.
The glass cases at East 14th Bakery are stocked with freshly baked temptations. These temptations include everything from egg custard to pork buns and mini pineapple pies. For special occasions, the bakers can whip up cupcakes by the dozen, cakes, and other baked goods such as cinnamon rolls or eclairs.
Much like the concoctions they?re named for, the story behind The Cupcake Shoppe is short but sweet. In 2011, Yolanda Diaz and her daughter Rosie started an online bakery. Within months, their treats became so popular that they had to invest in a full-sized confection facility. Since then, the Cupcake Shoppe has expanded their menu to include traditional, liquor-infused, and specialty cupcakes, including a french-toast-and-bacon version that nabbed top honors at the 2012 San Francisco Cupcake Challenge.
Yolanda and Rosie?s other cakes stretch the size spectrum, from cake pops and mini cupcakes to full-size custom cakes decorated for holidays and special occasions. The ladies also craft caramel apples and cookies that, like most thermometers, work best when dipped in chocolate. Their treats have even attracted some celebrity crushes: comedian George Lopez and 49ers running back Frank Gore have been spotted in the shop, and the cupcakes were also featured in the gift bags at the 2012 Daytime Emmy Awards. The Cupcake Shoppe was also featured in the 2013 edition of Cupcake Wars.
