There’s nothing quite like biting into a warm cookie fresh out the oven to bring back memories of a simpler time, when treats were made with unpretentious, quality ingredients. Too Good Gourmet strives to vault taste buds back to this era with its delicious cookies. Though its founders, a mother-daughter team, have expanded into a 50,000-square-foot facility equipped with modern baking systems and dozens of employees, they still bake cookies using family recipes and fresh ingredients. To ensure that the integrity of the cookies is maintained even with such a large-scale operation, department leads conduct quality checks every half hour, and all employees undertake monthly training classes to keep their baking skills sharp and their knowledge of advances in the sprinkles industry second to none.

After sharing the basketball court with Wilt Chamberlain and Guy Rodgers while playing for the San Francisco Warriors, Al Attles became the head coach in the 1970s—one of the first African American coaches in the NBA—leading the team to a 1975 championship. His current endeavor, which he began in 1995, pleases crowds in a different way with Al Attles' California Cheese Steaks, crafted in an authentic Philly style similar to those from his native East Coast. Inside the restaurant, sports memorabilia adorns the walls and the menu with items named after athletes including the Mully sandwich, named after Chris Mullin, and the Destroyer burger, christened with Al’s own nickname. Cooks grill the chopped steak with sliced cheese, in addition to crafting more health-conscious fare such brown rice bowls packed with vegetables, grilled Alaskan salmon, and miniature food pyramids
