  • Colonial Cafe
    Today, Colonial Cafe & Ice Cream may have seven full-service family-friendly restaurants, but when it started in 1901, it was only a single small ice cream and dairy store. Now guests can settle into breakfast, lunch, and dinner at each of the eateries –and still enjoy the ice cream that put them on the map. They have garnered particular attention for their signature dish, the Kitchen Sink Sundae, which features two whole bananas, six scoops of ice cream (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry), whipped cream, chocolate, and chopped almonds with a cherry topper. It’s served in a large dish shaped like a kitchen sink with a S-pipe as the handle. And when diners finish it, they receive a bumper sticker that reads, “I Ate a Colonial Kitchen Sink.” While ice cream reigns supreme, their breakfasts have also earned praise. They were voted “Best Breakfast” by the Elgin Courier News, Aurora Beacon News, and Naperville Sun. Favorites among the regulars include the stuffed very berry French toast and cinnamon roll French toast. Come dinnertime, they continue serving comfort foods including fresh baked meatloaf and a mac and cheese bacon melt, as well as sandwiches such as the pot roast French dip. The restaurant has also earned plaudits for its popularity with its littlest diners, grabbing the "Best Kid-Friendly Restaurant" designation in the Kane County Chronicle Reader's Choice awards.

  • Cookie Dough Creations
    Featured on the Food Network for a revolutionary sandwich composed of two freshly baked cookies surrounding edible, raw cookie dough, Cookie Dough Creations spares no calorie in whipping up buttery, sugary batters. In 1994, founder and dough aficionado Jim Bewersdorf began selling raw-cookie-filled creations to local restaurants, winning them over with specialties such as the cookie-dough ice-cream pie, which, like a mouth guard crafted from spun sugar, subdues sweet teeth with one use. Eight distinct flavors of all-natural, egg- and preservative-free dough top sundaes, grace shakes, and participate in the gentrification of dilapidated gingerbread communities. Dough devourers can also explore 24 flavors of ice cream in the black-and-white-tiled, dine-in dough haven, which is located near the Riverwalk.

  • Häagen-Dazs & Popcorn Palace
    From Häagen-Dazs' Belgian dark chocolate and Madagascan vanilla beans to Popcorn Palace's U.S.-grade-AA butter and whole macadamia nuts, both companies use top-quality ingredients to craft their signature goodies. Popcorn Palace's 27 popcorn varieties fall into four flavor categories—Supreme, Sweet, Savory, and Simple—and are cooked in small batches to ensure that each kernel has a sense of its own self-worth. Supreme flavors, such as white-chocolate peanut butter, treat palates to a salty symphony of flavors, and Simple kernels take taste buds back to childhood cinema outings. Häagen-Dazs's numerous, diverse flavors of ice cream, yogurt, and sorbet fill cups, cones, and milk shakes with the sweet, frosty essence of coffee or mint chip.

  • Jamba Juice Sacramento
    With more than 700 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company’s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets. This naturalistic approach is fully realized in Jamba Juice's selection of smoothies. Made with 100% fruit juice, sherbet, and frozen yogurt, the frosty delights range from all-fruit smoothies such as peach perfection and strawberry whirl to more indulgent creamy treats, including peanut butter moo'd, an enticing blend of peanut butter, bananas, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate. For those with heartier appetites, steel-cut oats steep in soymilk before being enhanced with toppings such as apples, cinnamon, and brown-sugar crumble. The lunch hour presents protein-packed mini wraps, toasted bistro sandwiches and artesian flatbreads that pack only about 320–420 calories each.

  • Nothing Bundt Cakes
    In 1997, friends Dena Tripp and Debra Shwetz set out to create a luscious, melt-in-your-mouth bundt cake. What began as an endeavor in their own home kitchens soon blossomed into a bustling business with bakeries in 14 states. Rich cocoa browns and soft pastels lend a nostalgic feel to each bakery, where every day lava-powered ovens warm up batter made from fresh eggs, real butter, and cream cheese. Flavors such as chocolate chocolate chip, pecan praline, and white-chocolate raspberry remain constants on the menu, and a new flavor makes a guest appearance each month. Cakes come in several sizes, from the standard 8- or 10-inch bundt to the single-serving bundtlet and the bite-size bundtini, all frosted with a signature blend of cream cheese and butter. Each Nothing Bundt Cakes location also houses its own stock of gifts. Patrons may come across the brightly hued handle of a confetti cake knife or opt to take home an old-fashioned tin, perfect for stowing coffee and imprisoning gingerbread men who have tried to run away. Contact the location of your choice for gift pricing and availability.
