Spicy Pickle complements its eponymous cured cucumbers with a suite of sandwiches, soups, salads, and more, all built with care and fresh ingredients. Feel free to punish stubbornly unmelted cheeses with a panini, featuring fresh foccacia bread piled high with toppings and pressed until delectable in a hot griddle, or nosh an un-pressed sandwich on a ciabatta roll. Menu options span from the Santa Cruz sandwich, its roasted turkey surrounded by avocado, corn relish, cheddar cheese, and chipotle mayo ($6.99), to the South Side panini, which finds gruff roast beef forced out of retirement for one last mission with wise-cracking pepperoncinis, red onions, lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar, and horseradish mayo ($6.79). Alternately, a fleet of salads awaits commission in entree and side-salad sizes, alongside soups (from $3.29), personal pizzas (from $6.99), and build-your-own sandwiches ($6.99).
The foundation of San Francisco Style Sourdough Eatery's deli-style sandwiches is its talked-about sourdough bread, freshly baked and still warm from the oven. Customers also have a large variety of fillings to choose from: the menu boasts 22 different sandwich options. Piles of ham, pastrami, turkey, and tuna salad mingle with Swiss cheese, lettuce, onions, tomato, and mustard. Other options include corned beef and turkey, garlic-pesto turkey, and veggie. Eager sandwich-consumers can also opt towards combos that include chips, fountain drinks, green salads, or soup. Meanwhile, the sandwich-rebellious can grab soup served in cups, bowls, sourdough-bread bowls, or sourdough-bread stovepipe hats.

"If you can dream it, we can make it." It's a pretty lofty promise, but Caked Las Vegas has the reputation to back it up—the bakery has been featured on TLC's Fabulous Cakes, and created treats for companies such as Paramount Pictures and Southwest Airlines. Its popularity stems in part from a commitment to using all-natural ingredients and baking desserts from scratch. But it's also known for its inventive cake flavors, which range from s'mores to pina colada to not-broccoli. In addition to the cakes, baker Jill Tippetts also serves up other signature treats, including mini pies and dossants (donut-croissant hybrids).
Cake artist Sonya Washington has seen a lot in the last 30 years. She left behind a corporate position to pursue her confectionary dream, and even spent nine months homeless while working to save her fledgling sweet shop. But all those trials are behind her, and they’ve paid off.
With educational certificates in cake decoration and pastry design, Sonya and her business have become so successful that she gives away more than 10,000 mini cupcakes annually, either to charity or as samples. She trains new generations of sweets makers with daily classes, which cover topics including baking for couples, advanced cupcake creation, and how to spot counterfeit buttercream frosting that is actually just gold. While waiting to pick up cake pops in gluten-free or sugar-free configurations, patrons press their noses against glass to peer at Sonya’s cakes, which have included some shaped like guitars, cars, and hats.
