Jose's Authentic Mexican Restaurant is a dream come true for the owner, Jose Luis Parra Vera, who wanted to put to use his own recipes for Mexican cuisine. The gregarious wait staff presents the dishes with appropriate panache, daubing celebrants' noses with whipped cream from birthday desserts and carrying five plates at a time. Bright-colored walls frame murals depicting beach scenes with brilliant-blue water and green palm trees bowing over multicolored hammocks recalling the beaches of Mexico. Beneath the paintings, corn or flour tortillas enfold morsels carnitas, a dish of shredded-pork tips traditionally slow cooked with green chilies and cumin. The chatter of silverware fills the outdoor patio when the weather is warm, and there aren’t carolers singing about the dangers of holiday lights outside.

Jackie and Dawn, the mother-daughter team behind Scott's Pastry Shoppe, have been crafting fresh-baked pastries that range from elaborate wedding cakes to adorably frosted cookies for more than 20 years. When not hypnotizing sweet teeth with rapidly swirling lollipops, the baking duo funnels its dessert expertise into treats such as cupcakes, raised donuts, and kringles––a Danish-American sweet pastry. Ornate wedding cakes, which are available in marble, carrot, and strawberry, can be customized with fillings of custard, blueberry, cherry, or german chocolate. The steady-handed artists also personalize pastries by draping cakes in delicate flowers, bows, and scalloped tiers crafted from airy buttercream frosting.
