White Rhino Coffee is about more than just coffee—although really good coffee is of the utmost importance here. Open early and closing late, the cafe serves as a place where strangers can become friends over caffeine-fueled conversations and laughter. Along with classic french press, espresso, and drip coffees, the staff recommends tasty drinks like nonfat iced dirty peppermint chai. "Edibles" such as house-baked cookies, muffins, fresh fruit, and scrumptious sandwiches keep bellies full and quiet during events like open mic night and group naps.
We are a boutique bakery offering over 100 desserts including our signature cupcakes with buttercream made with real butter. We also have a full cafe with amazing gourmet sandwiches, paninis, wraps, homemade soups and our custom tossed-to-order salad bar. We also do custom cakes and specialty decorations.
Sweet potatoes, pure chocolate, pecans, whole eggs, and real butter are blended into the made-from-scratch baked goods at Uncle Willie’s Pies, lending them the authentic taste of home cooking. In the wholesale business since 1996, Uncle Willie’s Pies now serves walk-in customers at its Red Oak location, where colossal red velvet cakes topped with cream-cheese icing and glistening peach cobblers await rumbling stomachs. Deep-dish trays hoist rich servings of buttermilk, sweet-potato, and lemon chess pies as well as fruit-filled pies, including no-sugar-added options. Uncle Willie’s also fills custom orders and hosts full service catering, allowing guests to pick and choose their favorite combination of ingredients to eat or throw at any poorly behaved clowns.
Early every morning at Frosted Pink Cake Company, bakers blend bowls of fresh eggs, Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans, rich chocolates, and fruit to create a variety of small-batch cakes and cake pastries. The company was founded by pastry chef Tonja Jefferson, who decided to trade in her corporate career to follow a lifelong passion for baking. This passion shines through in her cakes, topped with custom hand-drawn designs and layered in flavors that include banana chocolate chip and black and white raspberry. On a similarly sweet branch of the family tree, the cakes’ little cupcake cousins come in classic and deluxe flavors that rotate daily and always integrate the bakery’s signature swirl of cream-cheese or buttercream frosting. Some of the more elaborate flavors include a mimicked candy bar—a chocolate cupcake filled with homemade caramel—and an italian cream cake that tops a vanilla cake with mascarpone-cream-cheese frosting, toasted coconut, and walnuts.
Inside Yogurt Zone, staff serve up a mix of classic and unique frozen yogurt flavors, such as non-fat birthday cake and low-fat Heath toffee crunch. These frozen creations can also sport a range of toppings, from Fruit Loops and Oreos to cheese cake pieces and yogurt raisins. In addition to dispensing dessert, the shop focuses on reducing and recycling its waste to leave a smaller environmental footprint.
Chef Wendy conjures up a daily menu of delectable cakes and post-dinner delights from scratch, slathering silken ribbons of frosting onto standard and premium cake flavors. Decorated with rose-shaped whirls of cream cheese or butter-cream icing, dozens or half dozens of cupcakes make delicious substitutes for inedible flower bouquets. Works of art alight on custom cakes to celebrate birthdays and other special occasions, and cream-topped pies yearn to be scooped up or thrown in faces. Warm light bathes the bakery's charming interior, where bright furniture contrasts with earth-toned walls that pay homage to Mother Nature’s bounty of sugarcane and cupcake-bearing shrubs.
