Sincerely Yogurt menus feature healthy smoothies and Greek-style tart yogurts that boast less sugar than traditional fro-yo. Those smoothies, when enhanced by optional vitamin and herbal boosters, are so healthy they can even be substituted for a meal from time to time. Their frozen yogurts, replete with live and active cultures, support immune systems and healthy digestion. Customers can design their own frozen yogurt concoction, choosing from more than 35 flavors such as toasted marshmallow, root beer float, and maple bacon donut, all while promoting healthy liver and brain function. With more than 80 ever-changing toppings such as cookie dough and mixed berries, they also give customers plenty of ways to dive into indulgence.
Sincerely Yogurt also has a multi-purpose room available that can be used for special event rentals, including wedding receptions, birthdays, rehearsals, showers, community events, and more. A large 135-inch projection screen can display presentations or photo slideshows.
Butter Maid Bakery has been family owned and operated since 1955, producing small batches of cookies, muffins, cakes, and pies from old-fashioned recipes. Munching on clothespin cookies stuffed with sweet butter cream ($14 for two dozen) is a great way to wait out the rinse cycle, while chocolate-chip cookies ($15 for two dozen) remind you of happier times when flocks of coordinated dodo birds did your laundry. Celebrate Labor Day with iced sugar cookies ($15 for two dozen), or witness the magic of edible photography by placing an order for custom-frosted photo cookies ($39 for the first dozen). Kolache nut rolls ($9) filled with walnut, apricot, and poppy seed are also delectable options, while strawberry cheesecake and apple-crumb pie ($55 each for a half sheet) provide something irresistible for passing clowns to aggressively shove into their own faces.
Mediterra Bakehouse's team of flour artisans employs cultural traditions of their North Aegean roots, unblemished flour, and careful hand kneading to craft fluffy assortments of baked goods. Multifarious pastries, such as a crumbly twice-baked chocolate-hazelnut biscotti ($8 for a pack of four) or buttery currant-cream scones ($8 for a pack of 4), pack citrus tones that pair with coffee better than small talk and hard-to-pronounce size names. Pound-cake selections ($10 each) in lemon and vanilla sport 24 ounces of buttery French style and respective lemon zest or bourbon vanilla for socially acceptable at-work bourbon consumption. Delectable loaves of chocolate-cherry bread come chock-full of Michel Cluizel chocolate and moist Michigan cherries, and parmesan-peppercorn bread tingles tasters with a quarter pound of parmesan reggiano and black peppercorns that delightfully dip in tomato sauce (both $9). For health-conscious consumption, eight-grain, three-seed loaves deliver thick slices of cracked wheat, cracked rye, and cracked barley ($7), as mentioned in the bread section of Cracked Magazine.
Inside the large and loungy space of Anchor and Anvil Coffee Bar, visitors sip on fresh-brewed coffees from camping mugs decorated with anchors. Folks can grab their fresh-baked pastries to go or stay awhile at one of the tables or easy chairs. The new coffee shop has quickly become a neighborhood staple for more than just a cup of joe. People also pop in for artisanal teas, freshly-built sandwiches, and quirkily themed specials, such as Bastille Day scones.
Willow's atmosphere walks the line between sophistication and accessibility, and chef/owner Michael Rudman's lunch and dinner menus follow suit by politely one-upping their diners' every expectation via innovative dishes and dashing drinks. The restaurant's signature dish, lump crab cakes, comes blissfully broiled and drizzled with a tangy red onion caper sauce and lemon-pepper asparagus ($27 as a dinner entree). Other favorites include the sautéed Alaskan halibut served on braised fennel with tomatoes that have been slow-cooked overnight and a cabernet wine sauce ($24). There are also a few vegetarian dishes offered, such as the Japanese pumpkin ravioli topped with sage, cabbage, pine nuts, and shaved parmesan ($15). If you're dining with the family, there is a special kids' menu. If not, there is a special adult martini menu (featuring a more complicated crayon maze) and adult wine menu to artfully accompany plates and lubricate parched conversations.
Applelicious sates saccharine chompers with hand-dipped granny smith apples adoringly coated in a savory concoction of sweet and salty toppings. Each dewy-eyed apple is ensconced in a layer of creamy vanilla caramel and two extra layers of rich milk chocolate before tumbling down a salty slide of nuts and candies and drizzled with a salacious sprinkle of white or peanut-butter chocolate ($9.95/small, $12.95/large). Eschew lackadaisical lollies for Applelicious's bestselling roasted-cashew apple, which tickles ears with the sweetened crunch of freshly roasted cashews enveloped in ribbons of white chocolate.
