There are no mystery ingredients in the smoothies and juices at The Smoothie Stop. Instead, customers can watch as the staff pops only the fruits, vegetables, and yogurts they desire into blenders to create a range of healthy drinks. For those looking for a nutrient-rich treat, the staff can squeeze the juices from complementary fruits and veggies, such as apples, celery, and carrots. But for those who desire a bit more indulgence in their drinks without having to use three straws, the staff can whir together creamier options. These include drinks such as pi?a-colada smoothies and honey-milk tea or green tea served with a layer of chewy tapioca pearls. The staff also creates bowls of snow fluff ice, which can be customized with a range of fresh fruit and candy morsels at the toppings bar.
Goldstein's fresh bagels are made by hand daily, dipped into a boiling bath and hearth baked for a glossy sheen and hearty interior. A bevy of circular creations await your mouth hub, including specialty bagels like cinnamon-raisin, asiago cheese, and delectable peanut butter chocolate chip, as well as classic favorites such as egg, poppy seed, and pumpernickel (usually $6 for six bagels). Upgrade doughy disks with schmears of herb, strawberry, or lox cream cheese, or pair with fresh-squeezed orange or coffee.
An LA Times reader so loved Euro Pane’s spiced pear cake that she wrote in for the recipe; but this sort of fandom isn’t unusual for owner Sumi Chang’s creations. Frommer’s, for one, called her croissants “some of the butteriest, flakiest in town” and said “the salted macaroons will make you swoon.”
The bakers of this modern cake shop—named 1 of Martha Stewart's 10 favorite cupcake bakeries—decorate elaborate cakes, cupcakes, and cake pops with bright icing. In their open-air kitchen, they weave together quality ingredients, such as Callebaut chocolates, Valrhona cocoa, Madagascar bourbon vanilla, and sugar imported from Gum Drop Mountain. They schedule a set number of flavors for each day, juxtaposing classic flavors with eclectic concoctions, such as french toast, peach cobbler, and Martha Stewart's favorite, cherry pie.
After baking tasty canvases, bakers decorate the cakes with swirls of delicious buttercream or cream-cheese frosting. They can also transform pastry and frosting into custom designs, such as a turntable, piles of books, or a Barbie doll to celebrate a special occasion or conceal sweets from greedy party guests. The rich, smooth icing is so photogenic that no wedding cake ever needs to wear fondant cover-up.
