This cone-shaped sweet shop lavishes refreshment on tongues with an expansive menu of soft-serve and hand-dipped ice cream, fresh milkshakes, sundaes, and other savory snacks. After fastidiously scanning through the shop's 13 flavors of ice cream, transport dollops of sub-zero black raspberry or sumptuous peanut-butter weave ($2.79 for a regular serving) to your mouth via sugar cone ($.25 extra), waffle cone ($.75 extra), or frosted particle accelerator. Handmade milkshakes ($3.75) rescue jaws from the taxing duties of mastication, and cookies ($1) and funnel cakes ($1.75) succor sweet teeth sans the threat of orthodontic-headgear hypothermia. Those looking to maximize flavor variety can enhance icy eats with toppings such as rainbow sprinkles, gummy bears, skittles, and broken cookies ($.50 each).
Bagelicious's 20 varieties of dough wheels increase their edible utility by teaming up with 12 tasty gourmet cream cheeses and keeping an arsenal of pastries and lunchtime sandwiches close by. Silky sheets of vanilla-walnut-raisin and peach cream cheese ($7.25/lb.) blanket soft apple-cinnamon or whole-wheat bagel beds ($0.85/1, $4.15/6, or $8/13), offering taste buds a nutritious place to sleep. The bagel sandwich's two eggs and bacon ($3.50) sizzle melodiously, laying a beat for synchronized eating, and pizza trimmings tango atop midday bagels ($4.85). Meanwhile, mischievous apple fritters ($2.20) and muffins ($2.05) let tongues frolic through meadows of sweet flavor while they hot-wire the jaw and cruise away.
In order to avoid universe-collapsing paradoxes, Cupcakes Gourmet uses only the finest ingredients, including Madagascar bourbon vanilla, Belgian dark chocolate, sweet-cream butter, organic milk, extra-virgin olive oil, and premium double-wet water to fashion its delectable miniature cake breeds. Cupcakes Gourmet's flavors change with the seasons—the carrot cake drifting from the trees while the chocolate vanilla snows down only to melt away and sprout anew as the zesty lime. When the sun is strongest, café mocha and coconut varietals ripen on the vine. Yearlong stalwarts include the chocolate vanilla, stoplight-bright red velvet, and lovely lemon. Cupcakes Gourmet also spouts out ganache noshers such as the triple chocolate, black and white, and double dark chocolate.

Warm aromas spill from Great Harvest Bread Co.’s bakery, as artisanal bakers craft whole-grain bread from Montana's hard red spring wheat that is stone ground each morning. They pack each loaf with hearty protein and nutrients, keeping the recipes as simple as possible to maintain the rich wheat flavor. In addition to their standard honey-whole-wheat loaves, the bakers create a variety of treats, including rosemary-garlic loaves, cinnamon pull-aparts, and asiago-pesto loaves. They also transform the bread into sandwiches, pairing the whole wheat with freshly sliced meats, cheeses, and ticklish pieces of lettuce.
With wholesome, home-spun dishes prepared daily, Tabora Farm and Orchard cultivates a back-to-basics feel that extends beyond its 19th-century barn confines. Start the day with a sweet, delicate pastry, such as a pinwheel or a turnover ($1.29 each), still less indulgent than being spoon-fed oatmeal by a corgi butler. Pies come in 13 flavors, enveloping raspberries, blackberries, cherries, and strawberries inside doughy first-class packages ($11.99 each). Remind spoons to be patient when stocking freezers with homemade ice cream in classic and palate-bending palate flavors such as lavender, chocolate maple bacon, and rosemary lemon thyme ($2.99 for a scoop, $4.99 for a pint). Commune with your food source via an extensive schedule of U-pick options, including green beans, blueberries, cucumbers, apples, and more. Lunchtime browsers can avail themselves of farm-fresh meat roasted on-site and crowned with fresh bread, lettuce, and tomatoes in sandwich form ($6.50+), and Fresh-made mac 'n' cheese, pickles, and salads can round out or give self-improvement tips to any meal.
