Mango Tango’s vibrant frozen dessert emporium welcomes guests and encourages them to mix and match healthy frozen creations thanks to a convenient pay-by-the-weight serving system. Six deliciously icy flavors, including classic tart, peach mango, and alpine vanilla, flow free from the store’s shining spouts to do battle with rumbling stomachs and spontaneously combusting tongues. Mango Tango’s topping selection brims with sugary, chocolaty, and wholesome bites. From blueberries to chocolate chips and cereals to gummy bears, customers can top their treats with as many extras as a cup can hold.
Fresh milk, real fruit purees, and live yogurt cultures go into the creation of each creamy scoop at The Big Easy Frozen Yogurt Shoppe. Customers devour spoonfuls of the self-serve treats, selecting from a coterie of available non-fat and no-sugar flavors. The cozy shop boasts a Caribbean and Jamaican feel, with free Wi-Fi for catching over sixty assorted topppings, including crushed candy, slices of fresh fruit, and crunchy breakfast cereal.
Cafe Heavenly welcomes guests into a world of gourmet seafood bisques and crab cakes, tangy gorgonzola salads, and savory flatbreads, surrounded by the appetizing scent of toasted subs and paninis. The bill of fare comes alive with classic northeastern seafood fare, such as the award-winning New England–style clam chowder or the buttery, whole-crustacean lobster rolls—born from the restaurateur's multiple trips to Maine and annual productions of Our Town. The brick-and-mortar location's seaside position and umbrella-shaded outdoor seating beckon to passersby with its laid-back bistro charm, whereas a food truck takes the mantra of tropical fruit smoothies and housemade lobster rolls to the streets.
The cookie sheets at Grammy K's are loaded with oversized cookies, indulgent cheesecakes, and rich brownies. A grandmother to few and baker to millions, local entrepreneur Kathy—stove name Grammy K—created the Monster cookie, a massive accretion disk of gluten-free dessert matter. Its trifecta of childhood favorites—peanut butter, chocolate chip, and oatmeal raisin—are baked into one oversized doughcircle that topples towering appetites with the brawn of a huge, unidentifiable creature covered in blue fur. Customers who deny the round nature of dessert can instead sail to flavor paradise with a flat, four-cornered order of chocolate brownies ($20). The New York–style cheesecake ($29) ships classic urban flavors south, building a delicious concrete jungle of flavor on tropical tongues. Orders must be placed 24 hours in advance or 48 hours in advance for major holidays.
