Ice cream cools hot mouths, gives spoons a purpose, and turns into soup, so it's both a dessert and second course. Try one of Baskin-Robbins's ice cream cakes—including flavors such as fudge crunch, Oreo Cookie, Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, and brownie a la mode—or indulge in soft serve, ice cream, sundaes, and more. For other sweet treats, go with doughnuts, which are renowned for being a superior form of bread; standout flavors include blueberry cake, Bavarian creme, Boston creme, glazed cake, jelly filled, French cruller, apple crumb, and more. If you prefer non-sweet food, bite into a bagel or one of the oven-toasted flatbread sandwiches that come in flavors such as chicken parmesan, ham and swiss, and turkey, bacon and cheddar.
The bakers at the sister-owned cheesecakery use fresh ingredients to create creamy, handmade confections.

The bite-sized baked goods are perfectly portioned to prevent guilt-induced post-cheesecake regret, and as such make a fitting gift for calorie-counting suckers for sweet or someone who underwent a surgical procedure that replaced his or her human mouth with the mouth of a striped bass.

Perhaps Marjorie Merriweather Post was just a natural entertainer. When she purchased Hillwood in 1955, she opened it to the public—but only after decorating it with a comprehensive collection of Russian Imperial and French decorative art, and commissioning a 25-acre landscape with rose gardens, a French parterre, and a greenhouse.
