Anointed as one of Oprah's Favorite Things in 2005, Moveable Feast's Deeply Fudgey brownies smother biters' bicuspids in moist, rich dark chocolate. The shop's husband-and-wife duo invented the recipe after hundreds of experiments, some of which resulted in mutant turtle-brownie hybrids who still slowly crawl the earth, surprising children at birthday parties and periodically bathing themselves in cups of milk.

On a sunny afternoon spent wandering amid The Berry House Shops, you see a bright flash of green out of the corner of your eye. Intrigued, you turn to stare at a green awning speckled with pink polka dots shading a bright pink door and decide to see what lies inside. The eye-catching decor may have drawn you in, but it’s The Latest Crave’s rows of cupcakes topped with creamy peaks of frosting, stacks of english toffee, and clusters of frosting shots that make you want to stay. Shop owners Elaine and Nancy craft these confections using their original recipes, which detail how to make both milk- and dark-chocolate toffees and cupcakes in a variety of sizes. More than two dozen cupcake flavors including such varieties as cookies 'n' cream and strawberry shortcake to key lime and peanut butter and jelly, rotate throughout the month, and additional seasonal flavors, such as pumpkin and gingerbread, make an appearance when their ingredients are freshest. Some of the cupcakes they create sound as extravagant as a limo made from dinosaur bones; witness the Jack-n-Jill, a milk-chocolate cupcake stuffed with a marshmallow and topped with a hardened layer of chocolate ganache. Even more innovative are the frosting shots—petite chocolate cups brimming with irish-cream, piña-colada, and marshmallow-infused buttercream frostings.

At Dolce Bakery & Café, chefs toss bruschetta salads, roll fresh dough for italian pizza breads, and bake hand-layered lasagna until it's golden brown on top. After diners polish off plates of meatballs and paninis, they can peruse glass cases aglow with colorful confections, including cakes, pastries, and cookies, which are nestled alongside a cooler of gelato.

As a child in Modena, Italy, Andrea Chiappelli watched grapes slowly transform into balsamic vinegar on his family's aceteria. Growing up steeped in this landscape of Old World agriculture, it's hardly a surprise that he fell in love with the full, organic flavors that sprang from it. Yet it is surprising how his passion manifests itself. Andrea eventually left the Italian countryside to begin a career in mechanical engineering, and it's this talent that he uses to fine tune the gelato production at O' Sole Mio. There, the team of Italian-Americans and Italian enthusiasts hand-make creamy gelato in more than 300 traditional and modern flavors, from sweet balsamic vinegar to ricotta with pear or salted caramel. These scoops come in a cup, a cone, or even a cup of hot chocolate made with melted squares of real milk chocolate. The staff also creates plates of cannoli and pasta to preempt sweet bites or pair with an Italian martini for a meal that transports mouths to Venice without requiring them to pack their taste buds in an overnight bag.
