Under the leavened leadership of executive pastry chef Alethea Hickman, Passion for Pastry bakes a butter-creamed bounty of sweet treats. Cupcake paramours can relish in their selection of one dozen moist cupcakes, each made larger-than-average for an added number of heavenly bites and to make their oversized sunglasses look less ridiculous. Guests can choose their decadent desserts from an extensive selection of flavors such as cherry-topped black forest, crushed cookie-coated Oreo, apple cinnamon, peanut butter, red velvet, and butter rum.
Mozart Cafe’s chefs draw culinary inspiration from modern Israeli cuisine, and the result is an eclectic mix of made-from-scratch kosher dishes ranging from pizza and salad to breakfast salmon platters. The Balkan pizza blends Israeli and Italian flavors with olives chunks of smoky eggplant sitting atop a bed of sauce, mozzarella, and feta cheese. Though the café is decidedly health-focused, plates arrive piled high with portions as generous as what you’d find in a neighborhood diner or your mom’s kitchen.
Orange Leaf's self-serve frozen-yogurt stations tempt dessert lovers with a line-up of more than 55 flavors, including gluten-free and no-sugar-added options, and 35 toppings. Tongues can traipse across timeless frozen-yogurt flavors such as classic tart, cherry, and chocolate, or less-trodden tastescapes such as peanut butter, red velvet, and gingerbread ($0.49/oz.). Then guests bedeck desserts with mounds of toppings, adorning their yogurt with such options as marshmallows, chewy mochi, and fresh fruits similar to those worn by generals in the Oompa Loompa army. The staff weighs completed creations on a scale before guests dive into their edible masterpieces spoon first.
