From the Heart Pastries' staff bakes each of its rich pastries fresh, and creates oven-born treats including cakes, cookies, and praline candy. The bakery's Signature Series praline candy, creamy, smooth butter and brown sugar embedded with macadamia nuts, walnuts, or almonds ($2), makes the perfect holiday gift or apology to the neighbors for taking a nap on their lawn. Miniature ($2.25) or whole ($12) pecan pies settle squarely onto Thanksgiving tables, and a diverse collection of cookies stars classic flavors such as chocolate chip ($1.25). A luscious german-chocolate cake ($27) crowned with a rosette of pecan halves helps celebrate the season, a birthday, or a successful toothbrush purchase.

Peña’s Donut Heaven & Grill elevates earthbound appetites with a luscious litany of breakfasts and lunches, earning a CityVoter nomination for the city’s best breakfast in 2010. As the sun is carefully winched up and hoisted into the sky, Peña’s bakers craft delicious donuts ($5.79/dozen for glazed; $6.45/dozen for iced) fresh each morning, while plates of bagel, croissant, or biscuit breakfast sandwiches ($2.50 each) and savory chorizo-and-egg stuffed kolaches ($1.49 each; $15.99/dozen) hone in on hunger with surgical precision. At lunchtime, specialty sandwiches such as the 8 oz. california burger ($6.95) pose for pictures in an edible attire of sprouts and avocado, a slice of swiss cheese, and a dollop of tangy ranch dressing. In addition to classic American eats, Peña’s Donut Heaven catapults diners across the border with helpings of ham-and-spinach breakfast tacos ($2.50 for three) and lunches of beef burritos topped with pico de gallo ($6.99).

Guests dally daily between Four Friends Tea Room's bright walls, supping on quality loose-leaf tea and simple sandwiches and purchasing art right off the walls. Chat up a chum in the intimate Gold Room, or reserve the main dining room, which seats up to 30 people, to host an extended pinkie-jousting tournament. The sumptuous selection of sandwiches, soups, and salads includes the triple-decker club ($7.50), the flaky croissant sandwich ($8.50), and a lovingly concocted salad of tender grilled chicken ($8.50). In addition to day-to-day high ($16) and low ($10) teas, the café carefully pours out tea-room samplers ($8) that give guests a tongue-tickling taste of the shop's leafy luster. The community quenchers at Four Friends Tea Room keep fans abreast of the latest menu items, events, and their incipient tradition of murder-mystery dinner theater on the café's Facebook page.

Fruity Pebbles. Rainbow sprinkles. Blueberries. Hot fudge. Eclectic sweets fill the toppings bar at ByBerries, where customers select an array of candy, cereal, nuts, and seasonal fruits to top self-serve frozen yogurt. The frosty flavors on tap rotate often, with options such as pumpkin, butter pecan, cappuccino, and banana coconut, but a selection of original, nonfat, and no-sugar-added varieties remains a constant. The self-serve forum inspires mixing and matching yogurts, ensuring that like snowflakes or the social security numbers of identical twins, no two dishes of fro-yo are alike.

For more than 75 years, Shipley's Do-Nuts has served up hot and fresh hand-cut donuts daily from Lawrence Shipley's time-tested recipe. Currently furnishing more than 60 varieties of fried ambrosia to donut disciples, Shipley's Do-Nuts creates three types of craveable crowns for the taking ($5.95/dozen glazed, $6.55/dozen mixed). The traditional yeast donut's everyday attire is a glaze coating, but it entertains a closetful of options, including curve-enhancing nuts, sequin-like sprinkles, and black-tie appropriate chocolate icing for attending formal french-bread balls. Filled yeast donuts protect their secret stash of cream or fruit with a sweet glaze force field, while denser—but not dumber—cake donuts aid rough morning wake-up calls by operating as portable pillows perfect for commuting or by sliding into stomachs in icing, glaze, sprinkles, or au naturel.

Stomping Grounds Playland is many things at once. Part play center, coffee bar, and restaurant, its target demographic spans generations, all of whom should find plenty to do within its 2,000-square-foot facility. A play structure delights kids with obstacles and colorful tunnels, and an expanded toddler area keeps the youngest visitors occupied. To fuel this fun, the onsite Brewster's Café serves up kid favorites such as hot dogs and mac and cheese.

However, the café has even more options for adults—not to mention a dining area with free WiFi. Baristas pour cappuccino, organic chai tea, and specialty espresso drinks such as white-chocolate mochas. These caffeinated treats complement an array of signature sandwiches and salads. Stomping Grounds Playland also caters to parents with comprehensive party packages; party planners take care of everything, including food, activities, and all the paperwork required to receive a birthday wish.
