In order to obtain your degree in Scoopology, you may want to open your mind and mouth to the endless combinations available behind the counter. This sweet factory pumps out homemade ice cream creations coated in classically childish ingredients including Jell-O, Pop-Tarts, cookie dough, and more. Take a few baby steps down tasty lane with cereals bathing in milk ($1.35–$3.30), liberally leap with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches made fresh to order ($2–$4.50), or dive in mouth first with a cookie crumbler, ice cream topped with warmed-up cookie bits. Other sandwich options include massive cookies slapped around a slab of ice cream ($1.25–$4) and Scoopology's anti-sandwich—one mighty bowl of cookie dough ($2.25–$7.85).
Easily transportable, sandwiches are the ideal lunchtime meal. You get a variety of food groups in every bite without annoying utensil requirements, prep work, or cleanup. Cucina's massive sandwiches, heaping with mounds of fresh-sliced meats and fresh veggies, are nearly too large to hover mouths around. Try the caprese, stacked high with fresh mozzarella, ripe tomato slices, basil, greens, and a drizzle of balsamic on fluffy foccacia, or opt for the warm meatloaf middle on a kaiser roll. All specialty sandwiches are served whole and are priced at $7.59. Deli sandwiches feature more-traditional brown-bag grub dressed with fancy drizzles such as garlic-artichoke aioli and chipotle mayo (half for $3.59, whole for $6.79). Fork fans will appreciate Cucina's inventive specialty salads ($8.49 each), including Thai beef marinated in Asian ginger sauce atop a bed of greens, creamy cheese tortellini with salmon, veggies, and chèvre dressing, and refreshing shrimp salad with fresh vegetables and greens.
