Cheesecake Heaven Richmond’s head chef Jane Eckels first began baking her cheesecakes for local restaurants in 1994, and has since enticed the palates of such prestigious clients as Samuel L. Jackson. Today, she hands out selections by the slice or whole cake from an ever-changing menu with flavors ranging from traditional New York–style cheesecake to innovative espresso chocolate chip or raspberry lemonade. To satisfy as many patrons as possible, the pastry chef can create gluten-free alternatives of her creations upon request. In addition to the main bakery location, two brick drive-thrus allow customers to enjoy cheesecake without leaving the comforts of their car or Pope-mobile.

Just like Mom used to say: "If it looks good enough to eat, I bet it's from that delicious sweet store next to the old gin mill. You know the one I'm talking about, right? No, not that one. I'm talking about Edibles Incredible Desserts, where I buy all my artful, tantalizing desserts and store them in my chest freezer next to my year supply of spinach quiches." And Mom was always right. Today's Groupon gets you $25 worth of melt-in-your-mouth, delectable creations for only $10 at Edibles Incredible Desserts.

The staple of any coffee shop is the coffee. But at Dolce's bistro, the caffeinated bean shares the spotlight with freshly made sushi. From nigiri to specialty rolls, each handmade dish is stuffed with a variety of seafood—including Atlantic smoked salon, spicy jumbo lump crab, and tempura whitefish—before being paired with pineapple, avocado, and honey wasabi sauce. The staff keeps busy at a dark wood counter, brewing java and splashing in single, double, and triple shots. They serve noncaffeinated drinks in the form of fruit-based smoothies, and their italian sodas are authentically Italian, like Ferraris, Roberto Benigni, and objects that lean.
