From its corner on McPherson and Del Mar, this 10-flavor fortress of self-serve frozen yogurt tops each treat with towers of more than 30 toppings. Fro-yo funambulists take their first step through Sweet Spot's edible obstacle course with a rotating roster of flavors ($0.39 per oz.) that includes chocolate, kiwi, acai berry, and green tea. After filling up your bowl or bowler hat with a pileup of frozen flavors, you can tailor it to your taste buds with peaches, fresh-cut strawberries, freeze-dried love, and a host of other delicious toppings. As emphasized by Sweet's Spots facts page, frozen yogurt contains a number of nourishing ingredients that aid digestion, strengthen bones, and—when topped with fresh fruit—give you the ability to smell time.
The sweet scholars at Great American Cookies bake up a bounty of chocolaty cookies, moist brownies, and festive cookie cakes. Chomp on chunks of chip-infused cookies in a variety of flavors, including snickerdoodle, white-chunk macadamia, and double fudge ($14 for a dozen), or nestle chewers into a moist, frosting-festooned brownie available in cheesecake and german chocolate. For an additional fee add a letter or word to any size cookie, or order an entire 16-inch special-occasion cookie cake ($26.49) decorated with fun, fanciful frosted images of puppies, sailboats, or M.C. Escher's favorite sport. Surprise a loved one with a small heart-shaped cake, ideal for a traditional Valentine's Day gift or a nontraditional Flag Day gift ($28.99 for large).
