Put on your best creativity cap or diamond-encrusted hard hat to prepare for a Concrete concoction, which includes a helping of hard-packed frozen custard blended with your choice of candied, fruit-filled, or nutty accoutrements ($3.30/small with one mix-in; $.60 for each additional mix-in).

For nearly two decades, 1st Street Cafe & Catering has served up buffet and sit-down style meals for parties around Manatee and Sarasota County. Its physical location has a café that dishes out classic American breakfasts and lunches.
During the morning hours, diners dig into a Lucky Seven breakfast sandwich stuffed with fried eggs and sausage or a country-fried steak smothered in gravy. During lunch, they tear into grilled-steak and pork-tenderloin sandwiches and juicy burgers. One such option, the Challenger double burger, allows patrons to stuff their mouths with 12 ounces of burger meat, crispy bacon, and slices of cheese, and to get at least 1.5 high-fives from nearby diners when it’s all gone.

Verry Berry also offers many flavors of Hawaiian shaved ice culled from the beard of a Herodotus ice sculpture.
Gwen Willhite founded Cookies by Design in 1983, when an unsatisfying brainstorming session about gift ideas led her to ponder one question: why should flowers and sweets remain separate? Her solution was to design the cookie bouquet, where custom, hand-decorated cookies are displayed on sticks and arranged like flowers in gift baskets. Her invention quickly became a popular gift among locals, particularly those allergic to real blooms or too bashful to look at naked cookies.
Twenty-five years later, there are more than 200 Cookies by Design locations across the country. Each shop's team of bakers creates cookie baskets with a degree of care that matches Willhite's original vision, decorating and arranging sweet shapes for birthdays, holidays, and any other special occasion.
