Live Love Yogurt’s self-service contraptions dole out creamy dollops of frozen yogurt, which contains live, active cultures and is certified by the National Yogurt Association. A stable of more than 60 toppings—such as Snickers, lychee, cherries, and butterscotch—is divided into dry, fresh, and wet categories to help taxonomists give each dessert a proper Latin name. Candies and fruits pile atop swirls of naturally flavored yogurt before a scale declares the frosty creation's final price. The shop also slings fruit bars, which are crafted from chunks of real pineapple, coconut, or strawberries.

Although each of their dishes is made without gluten, animal products, or refined sugar, Green Wave Cafe proves that raw, vegan food can tempt palates. The eatery earned laurels in 2010 for being the Best Raw Food Restaurant according to the New Times Broward-Palm Beach for flavorful dishes "that actually satisfy." Among such edibles is a vegan chocolate ice cream that tastes close to "the real thing."

All dishes are made onsite daily, and the only cooked dish on the menu is the soup of the day. The hummus sandwich is made from peas sprouted in pure ionized water. The lettuce taco boats, which the staff calls one of its most popular dishes, include with housemade guacamole and vegan pâté rich with Mexican seasoning. Raw-food enthusiasts can also fill their baskets at the Monday farmers' market or earn raw-food certification with cooking classes.

In 1937, something hot, delicious, and glazed rolled through the sleepy town of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Seventy-five years later, Vernon Rudolph's secret doughnut recipe lives on within the hundreds of Krispy Kreme locations scattered across the globe as well as within the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of American History, where Krispy Kreme is heralded as a 20th-century American icon.

The entire doughnut-making process, which customers can view up close and personal at many of Krispy Kreme’s outposts, begins with fresh ingredients and ends with the click of a fluorescent sign bearing the words, "hot doughnuts now." From the original, mold-breaking glazed doughnut to newer doughnut varieties, such as chocolate ice Kreme, glazed raspberry, and glazed chocolate cake, each round dainty pairs with piping-hot coffee for a compact snack easily tucked into a pocket or clown shoe.
