In 1937, Vernon Rudolph founded Krispy Kreme in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, with the first location on South Main Street in Old Salem. Seventy-seven years later, his secret doughnut recipe lives on within hundreds of Krispy Kreme locations, serving premium sweet treats across the globe.

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 Iced with Kreme Filling, Glazed Raspberry Filled, and Glazed Chocolate Cake, each round dainty pairs with piping-hot coffee for a compact snack.

Jerusalem Cafe?s chefs combine tzatziki sauce, tahini, and creamy hummus with skewered meats to create classic Mediterranean dishes. They tuck falafel and gyro meat into pita wraps and slowly cook chicken seasoned with a special blend of spices. Smaller bites include spinach pie and veggie-stuffed grape leaves. Inside the eatery, stone accents join framed pictures of Israeli cities along the red walls.

The bakers at Best City Cupcakes love unusual requests. Past custom cake orders have seen them sculpting shapeless layers of moist cake and fresh buttercream into spooky haunted castles or sudsy mugs perched beneath a suspended can of beer. They even hold a monthly contest that invites customers to enter in their own unique cupcake recipes, and add past winners––such as the chocolate-cayenne Afterburn––to the menu for an entire month. Not that any of the shop's regular flavors would ever be considered bland; staples include The Britt, a dark-chocolate merlot topped with rich chocolate ganache, and the Elvis Lives—a banana chocolate-chip cupcake topped with peanut-butter frosting and thick pieces of grilled bacon. And because Best City Cupcakes knows that each household has varying cupcake needs, each flavor is available in standard size or as a bite-size mini, depending on whether they're being served as dessert or used as confetti.
