For four decades, Benkert’s Classic Delicatessen has been loading patrons with ample portions from a menu of breakfast eats, salads, sandwiches, and hot-lunch dishes. Customers can jump start their day with two eggs any style ($2.50) while gulping complimentary coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and surfing the free WiFi on a free wireless surfboard. For midday breaks, specialty salad sandwiches cover beds of bread in quilts of egg ($4.25) and shrimp ($6.25) salad. Gourmet wraps and sandwiches ($6.95) include the Fat Tony, packed with six cold cuts, mozzarella, peppers, greens, and vinaigrette, and protected by a hero bun toasted for its noble deeds.

There’s love in Fanny Cakes: love for baking, love for surprising the tongue, and love for family. As a young girl, chef Kristyn spent long days baking alongside her nana, Fanny. Those hours spent in flour and those moments waiting by the oven planted seeds in Kristyn that sprouted into a passion for baking and, eventually, the start of Fanny Cakes—named in honor of the woman who inspired her. Kristyn now relies on formal culinary training as well as the lessons learned from her nana while she crafts personalized treats for birthday parties, wedding receptions, and everything in between. She pays further homage to her nana as she works by using the sorts of ingredients Fanny loved—sweet creamery butter, belgian chocolate, and natural citrus zests—but finds inventive and eye-catching ways to showcase their flavors.

The fondant-draped tiers of Kristyn's full-size cakes conceal flavorful fillings such as lime curd or coconut custard. Cupcakes also feature inspired combinations, such as strawberry daiquiri with rum-spiked buttercream and snickerdoodle with a dusting of graham crackers and cinnamon sugar. Even with all of these flavors speaking for themselves, Kristyn still commits to presentation, designing cakes shaped like everything from a Gulfstream jet to an electric guitar. She also expands her menu beyond traditional bakery offerings by creating treats such as grown-up cake shots with doses of liqueur and cupcake push pops in plastic cylinders. She even shares her techniques with the public by leading classes that teach students how to decorate cupcakes without covering them in old two-cent stamps.

The squeals of tires and the cracks of bats reverberate across the grounds of Selden Batting & Grand Prix as fun-seeking guests get their blood pumping. Big kids and adults buckle up in gas-powered Grand Prix carts, whereas kids at least 50 inches tall get behind the wheel of Rookie Karts and those too tiny to drive slip into a double-seater next to Mom or Dad. After a victory lap, groups don helmets at the batting cages to swing at baseballs, softballs, and floating Faberge eggs. Inside the arcade, hands slam pucks at air hockey and shoo away impulsive jazz hands at Dance Dance Revolution, as redemption games challenge gamers to win prizes.

Selden’s ice-cream stand, meanwhile, overflows with more than 85 flavors, as well as rainbow italian ices, chocolate sundaes, and soft serve. Guests celebrating a birthday can make a reservation for an ice-cream-sundae party or other themed event at Selden, replete with games, go-kart rides, pizza, and sundaes.
