Treats by Bernadette silences clamoring sweet teeth with a menu of delicious confections whipped up from scratch. Crisp granny smith apples rest behind house-made caramel armor, which protects the fruit from hungry mouths with delicious inefficacy, and Ghirardelli milk chocolate disguises strawberries' crimson hides with drizzles of white chocolate. Cupcakes represent the missing link between miniature and full-size cakes, with moist, crumbly bodies regally adorned with fluffy crowns of frosting. Customers choose caramel, vanilla, coconut, or red velvet flavors, mixing and matching to keep taste buds from becoming complacent and registering every flavor as "not broccoli."
A kaleidoscopic range of colorful packages dots the shelves at A Gluten Free Frenzy, bearing labels from more than 300 brands including Udi’s, Pacific Natural Foods, and The Cravings Place. The knowledgeable staff helps visitors navigate an array of products, including nonperishables and frozen foods, all designed to add variety to shoppers' gluten-free meals. The expanding selection includes innovative wheat replacements such as rice, tapioca, potato, quinoa, teff, and sorghum. Alongside beers, varied frozen breads, granolas, and baking mixes beg to be included in meals. A Gluten Free Frenzy's café fills with chatter fueled by muffins, cupcakes, sandwiches, and pizzas, which can be crafted without the traditional layer of dairy products and pictures from the chef’s vacation.
Created by the Ginatta family, Paciugo satisfies cravings with hot and cold gourmet coffee concoctions and small-batch Italian gelato, made fresh daily from all-natural ingredients. Hundreds of flavors make rotating appearances on the expansive menu of confections, which boasts fruity sorbets and milk-, soy-, and water-based gelato, all with less fat than traditional ice creams or salads sculpted out of butter. Candied Italian black cherries, Piedmont roasted hazelnuts, Sicilian pistachios, and Belgian extra-brute chocolate add richness to the carefully crafted Turin recipes. Customers can fill a piccolo cup with up to three flavors ($3.99) or make the leap to the grande cup's five selections to meet the FDA's recommended daily servings in one sitting ($5.59).
Glass cases and racks of fresh bread dominate National Bakery & Deli’s three locations, which bake all of their goods fresh daily. Founded in 1925, the bakery continually recreates classic recipes for a menu that includes glazed doughnuts, frosted cookies, and cherry-filled coffee cake, as well as hard rolls and french bread. Deli fare includes baked ham, seasonal polish sausage, and several varieties of potato salad. In addition to their staples and custom cake orders, the bakery creates seasonal specialties that range from spring’s grasshopper pie and irish soda bread to winter’s gingerbread men and icy snowman souls. Every Mardi Gras, the bakery churns out piles of prune- and raspberry-filled paczki in a celebrated rush that has drawn great press—though patrons can make every Tuesday fat by perusing their year-round paczki selection.
The luck required to pull a winning combo at Half Nuts, unlike the chance involved in scaling Gumdrop Mountain, is little because of the superabundance of savory sweets and a pleasant lack of molasses mudmonsters. Half Nuts stocks sugar-free candy, a huge variety of nostalgic sweets, and the 50 official flavors of Jelly Belly jellybeans. Swish open a bag and fill it with assorted nuts ($1.79–$17.99 per pound), chocolates ($3.99–$13.99 per pound), and unwrapped candy ($1.79-$7.99 per pound). Or, prepare for little-red-hooded rides to Grandma's house with a gift basket full of chocolate-covered nuts and color-coded jellybeans (starting at $19.69 for a two-pound basket). This Groupon is not valid for M&M's.
Those allergic to cute better bring an EpiPen if they're going to One Way. Exposed brick, low-key tunes, hanging lamps, and rotating artwork by local creative types give the place a chill charm easily inhaled or absorbed along with treats such as morning French toast ($6.75) and strawberry crêpes dolloped with whipped cream and dusted with powdered sugar ($6.25). There's plenty of more substantial fare too, such as the café's famous homemade meatloaf sandwich topped with almond barbecue chutney ($6.75) and the Asian broccoli slaw with cabbage, carrot, peas, noodles, and cashews.
