With 16 homemade, velvety flavors that range from cherry to peanut butter, the Italian ice at Frostbites is a spectacular dessert on its own. But the menu doesn't stop there: to create their most popular confection, sorbet cream, the staff serves scoops of their italian ice atop swirls of vanilla or chocolate frozen custard. You can even combine two or more flavors of italian ice to create a colorful sundae or shake?staffers happily hand out bite-sized samples to help you craft your perfect combo or fit a snack for later in your breast pocket. For a more substantial dessert, try a sweet crepe topped with fruit, nuts, and other toppings.
One of the original pioneers of the yogurt industry, Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt has been whirling yogurt since the early 1980s. A bevy of rotating flavors includes tastes such as just chocolate, peanut-butter cup, café latte, graham cracker, and mango tart. Sample a small bit with a mini ($1.95 for 4 oz.), or take 32 ounces home to share in a quart ($6.00). Traditionally conical edible yogurt containers (small $2.75, waffle $3.25) make it possible for hands to hold the frozen delight. At 25–29 calories an ounce, health-conscious consumers can enjoy licks without translating each tongueful into the quantity of jumping jacks or flying starfish impersonations needed to offset it.
Locally situated and independently owned, Sips Coffee clears bleary eyes with an assortment of caffeinated concoctions and savory pastries. Shake off nightmares of coffee bean uprisings with a tea latte, which melds milk and sugar with a selection of aromatic teas that include passion fruit, earl grey, jasmine, and more ($3.35–$3.95). Try dousing steamy maws with an iced coffee ($2.35–$2.70) or creamy blended smoothie ($3.90–$4.35) before indulging in flaky pastries ($1.95–$2.15), fruit cups ($4.75), and sandwiches ($5.55). Sips Coffee's amicable gang of bean barons also trade their blends in bulk, which can double as paperweights when penning a voluminous coming-of-age tome about a free-spirited West Coast coffee bean ($5.75–$12). Sips Coffee hosts live, local music on weekends, and spirited patrons can utilize free WiFi to stream live videos of their own interpretive dances during each song.
Taking their cue from a metallic shark that adorns the sushi bar's back wall, diners ravenously devour a sea- and land-based selection of pan-Asian entrees. Boasting classical culinary training and more than 20 years of experience, chef and owner Jay Bai personally designs all of the menu's sushi rolls and word-search puzzles. Despite mixing all of his own sauces in-house, he elects to use them sparingly and highlights his fish's freshness instead, prompting the University of California, Riverside Highlander to write that "it was almost unbelievable at first to find that sushi this delicious had come to Riverside." Some sushi creations incorporate such flavorful touches as peppered salmon, baked scallops, or spicy mango sauce, but other pan-regional entrees provide more traditional tastes. Grilled steaks sport a glaze of teriyaki sauce, and deep-fried orange chicken combines tart and spicy flavors.
