The Cup bakes more than a dozen cupcake flavors that revolve every week, making room for new flavor features and seasonal specials. The classic combination of chocolate buttercream and fluffy yellow cake inside the Gold Rush ($2.75) is always available for prospectors to purchase with their own newly sifted nuggets. Patrons alight on lime-green stools as they break through the latticework of a streusel-encrusted sugar glaze to access the Cuppa Coffee Cake ($2.95). The Grasshopper ($2.75) was a recently featured confection, with an Andes mint spelunking into vanilla-mint buttercream. The Pumpkin Harvest ($2.75) treat will induce jack-o'-lantern grins September–December. A selection of The Cup’s from-scratch buttercream is also available in gluten-free incarnations.
In an effort to find a healthy alternative to fast food without sacrificing speediness, the creators of Pita Pit began assembling their signature sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night snacks. At each location, thin, Lebanese-style pitas encircle lean, grilled meats and fresh veggies, all grilled to order. Sandwich selections span the spectrum from gyro meat and falafel to turkey and prime rib. The staff empowers customers to make healthy choices by displaying nutrition information for each bread, meat, and post-meal toothpick and corralling a selection of healthy sandwiches.
For dessert, Pita Pit serves eight rotating varieties of Dannon YoCream frozen yogurt, which guests can mix and combine into their own flavor combinations. Instead of coming from a powdered mix, kosher-approved YoCream is made from live and active yogurt cultures that can aid in digestion. Nonfat YoCream varieties carry an average of 100 calories per half-cup, while tart and sorbet flavors stand ready to tempt a wide range of palates.
Before she opened Lo-Cal Cafe, Chef Robin honed her skills at a French culinary school. But she actually began learning about cooking as a child, watching as her mother fashioned fresh, simple ingredients into elaborate feasts. Now, she draws on both branches of experience to prepare healthy gourmet entrees, all of which contain 500 calories or less. Options range from protein-rich banana pancakes to veggie bowls with a choice of whole-wheat penne, brown rice, couscous, or quinoa, and a variety of proteins. Stop into the café or order prepared meals from Robin's weekly meal plan service.
A love of their community inspires Laura and Quincy Land, owners of The CoffeeHouse and Salon Systems. At their cozy café, they serve up piping-hot beverages culled from imported, fair-trade beans. Putting her expert barista skills to use, Laura meticulously brews drinks such as chai tea and cappuccino that tastily complement the freshly baked desserts she crafts daily. Adjoined to the coffeehouse is a quaint salon, where guests can enter to get milk mustaches trimmed after their meal.
Treat generators at The Bakery Shoppe craft each bakery item and customized cake from scratch with natural ingredients. Hearty loaves of country-white ($2.88) and black-olive tomato bread ($4.48) sit juxtaposed against appetite teasers such as single turnovers ($1.49 each) and filled donuts ($0.85 each). Cookies on sticks ($2 each) serve as swords against hungry birds and as essential elements in birthday bouquets. Giant Elvis Presley cupcakes ($3 each) lull frosting eaters to sleep with their immense size and gentle ballads, and nonalcoholic chocolate-martini cocktail cupcakes (two for $6) induce visions of happy hours. Sink sweet teeth into french pastries such as Napoleons ($2.19 each) and crème puffs ($1.99 each) or an all-American caramel apple pie ($8.98 each).
