  • The Sweet Tooth Fairy
    Stepping into The Sweet Tooth Fairy shop is like walking into another era: round tables and high-backed chairs surround an old-fashioned soda fountain, and oldies music plays softly nearby. Pale-blue walls and white crown molding stand behind a glass case full of sweet treats, which are baked daily and earned proprietor Megan Faulkner Brown two appearances on The Rachael Ray Show—one when she was still baking in her basement kitchen, and the next three years later, when her business had grown to nine locations. Megan uses the "most ordinary" ingredients to whip up her extraordinary pastries, which include chocolate-chip and iced oatmeal cookies, brownies, lemon bars, and a variety of cupcakes and full-grown cakes. Signature cakebites don coats of chocolate or white chocolate flecked with sprinkles. Flavors of baked goods rotate monthly, with some favorites available on a daily basis. Gluten-free options are available, as are frosting shots designed to save time usually spent licking every drop of frosting off the top of a full-size cake.

  • Arabica
    The potation crafters at Beans & Brews Coffee House whip up hot and cold beverages from perk-proffering coffee beans, relaxing tea leaves, and sweet decaf alternatives. Hot coffee drinks, such as the cappuccino ($3.60 for 12 oz.) or eye-opener brew ($2.80 for 12 oz.) gently jolt the brain awake with mountain-roasted goodness, and the dulcet notes of iced chai ($4.10 for 16 oz.) and B&B frappes ($4.05 for 16 oz.) cool off summer-scorched palates with their sweet, icy taste. Roasters get the most out of each coffee bean with Beans & Brews’ trademark high-altitude roasting, which imparts each batch of grounds with a smooth flavor that, like an angst-riddled teddy bear, maintains a high level of complexity.

  • India House
    India House seasons traditional Indian dishes with hand-ground spices and uses no preservatives or MSG, ensuring that its selection of meat, vegetarian, and vegan dishes burst with fresh flavor. Fresh yogurt and cheese is prepared in-house daily, and tandoori flatbreads, whether stuffed with coconut and cashews or topped with garlic, can be used to sop up sauces or pass a message to fellow diners that their car is currently on fire. Aloo gobhi ($10.99), one of many specialty dishes among a diverse collection of entrees, sates voracious vegetarian appetites with cauliflower and potatoes in a synergistic blend of onions, tomatoes, peas, and spices. Or take a bite of the jumbo-shrimp-filled shrimp tandoori ($14.99) and obtain the energy to sweep an entire chimney with a neighbor’s stolen bed sheets. Pairs can quash spice-induced palatal fires with a duo of soft drinks, including Coke, root beer, and orange Fanta.

  • Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory
    If it weren't for Frank Crail, Durango, Colorado would have been a much different smelling place. Decades ago, when he and his family first settled in the mountain town, he was considering two different business ventures: a chocolate shop or a car wash. Luckily, he chose chocolate, and since then, the air in Durango has carried its distinctly sweet scent. Inside the flagship shop, as well as in the hundreds of international franchises that have popped up over the years, cooks simmer caramel and fudge in hand-forged copper kettles, dipping skewered apples in the bubbling caramel and pouring the fudge onto 500-pound slabs of marble that cool it as it's shaped into 22-pound loaves. Though they've now got a handle on efficient candy-making techniques, Frank and his early team members were hardly expert confectioners. In the beginning, all they had was a ping-pong table. Upon it, they would clumsily make too-big candy centers, which only got larger after needing several dips in chocolate to make them presentable. But now, oversize candy is one of Rocky Mountain's trademarks: two of their most popular items are the Bear, a "paw-sized concoction" of caramel, chocolate, and roasted nuts that will attack if it smells food, and the Bucket, an impossibly large peanut-butter cup with whipped filling. Shoppers can watch many of these creations being made right in-store, and satisfy their growing cravings with take-home candy packaged in decorative boxes and tins.
