NuYo offers self-serve topping and yogurt stations, allowing patrons to remain at the dessert-designing wheel while keeping the planet in mind with eco-friendly practices. The sacchariferous storefront offers 10 to 16 rotating flavors of frozen yogurt, as well as flavors of the month and nonfat, non-dairy, and no-sugar options. A cup of frozen yogurt or shaved ice can be ambrosially adorned with more than 50 topping options. Opt for the pomegranate seeds, blackberries, and mandarins to lightly sweeten a cold cup, or the brownies, Andes mints, and Reese's Pieces to satisfy a chocolate craving. All frozen treats and toppings are $0.39 per ounce. The team at NuYo Frozen Yogurt also promotes environmentally conscious practices at the stores with recyclable containers, compostable spoons, and by donating shaved ice to replenish melting glaciers.
Helmed by sisters Rosalina, Monica, Lorena, and Giovanna Ascolani, Coronado Cupcakery brings a welcome dash of the familial to the cozy confines of Coronado. Following in their cupcake-loving mother’s footsteps, the siblings craft creatively flavored desserts each day in the form of red velvet, coconut cake, and lunch-friendly peanut butter and jelly cupcakes—a cousin of the chocolate cake sandwich. In addition to their daily flavors available in store, they custom-design birthday cupcakes, cater weddings, and bake muffins, cookies, and regular-sized cakes.
With a full menu of ethically sourced coffee products, Java Jones Coffeehouse will give your sleepy face a caffeine buzz without putting a frown on your morals.

Or pair a refreshing glass of iced tea ($2.25 for a small) with a build-your-own sandwich or crêpe ($6.95) for a midday pick-you-up. In addition to serving up tasty tastes by the taste, Java Jones sells a wide variety of its coffee and tea products to be prepared at your autobiographer's home. Steep some red-lavender loose leaves ($2.95) to unwind before calming down with a book in bed, or snatch the seductive French Kiss coffee ($11.95) to turn your kitchen's cold press into your home's summertime mistletoe.
