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.
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.
Mancini's Bread Company infuses its dough with 85 years of bread-baking expertise, helping to earn it the 2013 title of Best Bread in Pittsburgh by Pittsburgh City Paper. Owner Nick Mancini Hartner assumed the reins of the family business after learning the rules of baking from his grandfather and attending artisan bread classes at the San Francisco Baking Institute, twin educations that get baked directly into each loaf of twist bread, marble rye, and european multigrain. The popular pepperoni roll combines the family's crusty specialty with spicy pepperoni and all the transportable ease of a piano on wheels.
In 1983, Gwen Willhite stumbled upon a brilliant idea. She decided to combine the beauty of a bouquet with scrumptious cookies. Thanks to her artistic eye and tasty recipes, her venture—Cookies by Design—proved to be a success. Now, 30 years later, the company still fills bellies with artful, edible gifts, such as holiday-themed cookie bouquets, birthday cookie-cakes, and assorted trays of cookies to celebrate special events, such as graduations and Samhain.
A step onto Bruster's Real Ice Cream front porch?where red wrought-iron furniture and blooming flowers pop against a white fa?ade?might as well be a step back into the good old days. Despite the traditional imagery, the ice-cream shop's exterior was recently remodeled so that customers could get the same enjoyment out of the environment as they do from a bowl or cone of its premium ice cream. The friendly staffers behind the counter not only scoop up the creamy dessert but also create custom cakes for special occasions, lead summer camps and birthday parties, and provide catering to private events.
