After three generations of pastry-making, Joseph Caputo of Caputo's Pastry Shoppe leads his crew in crafting each paper-thin layer of the sfogliatelle by hand. Since 1923, the pastries emerging from the bakery's ovens have been made from scratch, including the cannolis, pasticottis, and rum cakes. This hand-crafting is what's referred to as Old World style, as opposed to the New World style of scanning and printing desserts.

At Cinnabon, the aroma of scrumptious baked goods wafts through the air as chilled beverages help sate the snack appetites of weary mallwalkers. Munch on a variety of cinnamon-infused treats, such as the Cinnabon classic roll, temptingly filled with Cinnabon’s famous makara cinnamon ($3.49), or the caramel Pecanbon, topped with an edible medley of luscious caramel and tasty pecans ($3.79). An assortment of goodies can be toted home for hungry broods in one of the stores’ regular Cinnapacks ($11.99 for four, $16.99 for six), and a 15-pack Minibon box ($18.99) is perfect for a sparsely attended reunion of former Power Rangers. After snacking, revitalize taste buds with a cup of iced coffee ($2.49–$3.49) or the chocolate-augmented, frosty Mochalatta Chill ($3.49–$4.19), a more refreshing way to cool down than a game of patty-cake against a polar bear.
