The owner of Stacie's Cakes, a mother of six, had little time for time-consuming baking projects while her children were young. Now that they've grown up, though, she can focus on expertly baked, meticulously decorated sweets. Among her specialties are multi-tiered cakes covered with sculpted fondant, sprinkle-dipped cake pops, and cakes that mimic the appearance of high heel shoes, animals, and other whimsical shapes.
The baking buffs at Christy's handcraft a variety of tasty desserts using fresh and flavorful ingredients. Celebrate the happy marriage of cake and cheese with a 7” circle dressed in chocolate-chip ($12.95), raspberry-swirl ($12.95), or fresh-fruit toppings ($13.95). Treat taste buds to a classic pie, such as pumpkin ($12.50) or chocolate cream ($17.95), which quells more traditional cravings with mouthwatering mousse and a reverent dedication to teetotalism. Bumbleberry pie ($12.50) packs a crust with a cornucopian variety of berries to sate sweet teeth more easily than an edible piñata. For groups of 12 to 15 pastry seekers, Christy packs her breakfast trays with a savory sampling of classic confections, such as muffins, crumb bums, and delectable danishes ($25).
A Latte Fun Indoor Playground and Café brims with happy chatter, which drifts from regular classes, special events, and open playtime seven days a week.
Children frolic across multicolored carpeted floors in a 6,000-square-foot playroom, exploring climbing structures, foam pits, and a floor-level trampoline that is kept safe by rounded edges, extensive padding, and declawed teddy bears. The playground eschews video games, prize games, and violent toys, instead letting older children don animal costumes in the dress-up area, while toddlers younger than 2 romp in their own play pit and toy bins. Cool zephyrs of air conditioning sweep contented sighs away from zebra-print sofas or onyx-hued wooden tables, where adults peruse a gourmet café menu. A boutique toy store extends the center's positive attitude toward play into homes with a slew of unique gifts and rare and eclectic toys.
A private room reverberates with the youthful energy of A Latte Fun Indoor Playground and Café's classes, formal functions, and parties, which staff members provide with refreshments, cake, and decorations. At least two assistants remain on hand at kids’ events to provide full setup, cleanup, and supervision to ward off squabbles that arise when imaginary friends show up wearing the same outfits.

The aroma of slow-simmering caramel and chocolate wafts through Hoffman’s Chocolate’s Greenacres headquarters. To demystify its origins, the shop’s chocolatiers have outfitted their kitchen with observation windows, granting customers the chance to admire their delicate handiwork and holiday helper subcontractors. They meticulously lace European truffles with chocolate drizzles, and dunk cherries and pretzels in milk and dark chocolate. This devotion to small batches of handmade treats extends back to the 1970s, when founder Paul Hoffman began peddling treats out of his small Lake Worth chocolate shop. Over the decades, chocolatiers have expanded the bakery’s repertoire to include whimsical confections such as enormous fortune cookies and seasonal treats.
Scattered pimento-like across the Boca Raton area, Mitch and Cory Shidlofsky's microcosmic Brooklyns serve teetering deli sandwiches and hearty breakfast fare. Every morning, diners tuck into 20 types of bagels, including egg, sunflower seed, pumpernickel, and marble, and slather them in cream-cheese flavors such as scallion, honey walnut, and strawberry. Sweeter options abound as well, including challah french toast, and Oreo pancakes that help children-at-heart relive their glory days when their heads were the size of cookies. Gloriously messy sandwiches star on the lunch menu—foremost among them the New Jersey sloppy joe, in which roast beef, corned beef, and turkey spill out from under russian dressing and coleslaw.
