Each Bruster’s location makes its own cakes, pies, waffle cones, and ice cream on site using fresh, natural ingredients. An expansive menu collects Bruster's chilly treats and ice cream, which is made daily. Milkshakes, lattes and blasts ($3.75–$4.75) catalyze slurping contests and hot-fudge brownies, kids' sundaes and banana splits ($2.49–$4.75) awaken the peripheral nervous system with messages of sweet, sweet submission. The Marietta location pairs chilling treats with savory Nathan’s Famous hot dogs, chilidogs, fries, and mini corn dogs and combos ($1.99–$5.99).
In keeping with the rest of the Plum Restaurants family, Plum Burgers food truck has no meat products on board. Its burgers are entirely beef-free, organic, and vegan—but within these restrictions, the cooks have gotten more than a little creative. The Jerk + Yam burger piles yam and Jamaican-spiced grilled tofu with caramelized onions, whereas the 8-ounce Mediterranean burger layers mint-kissed seitan with pickled figs. Other patties incorporate lentils, portobello mushrooms, and panko-crusted tempeh as meat substitutes.
Also on the menu are a variety of sandwiches and sides, including the popular Mac & Yease, which is a vegan version of mac and cheese that can also go gluten-free upon request. Milkshakes made with vanilla coconut ice cream conclude meals with cool, sweet sips. To track the truck's location, customers can refer to its homepage. It even takes pickup orders via phone call, text, or really loud yelling from across town.
Espresso Lane's kindly baristas brew steaming cups of fresh-roasted coffee and hand-tamped espresso as diners nosh on pastries, soups, and sandwiches. Syrup and butter flood the crisp-fried chamber of a belgian waffle, making each bite like suddenly discovering a back pocket full of twenty-dollar bills printed on candy ($4.25). White albacore tuna slathered in mayo and sun-dried tomato dressing snuggles between soft slices of bread in the tuna-salad sandwich ($6.75), and a sprinkler full of raspberry vinaigrette spritzes the grapes, mandarin oranges, and strawberries of the garden salad until they sprout into a flavorful medley ($7.25). Cups of the soup of the day ally with demi sandwiches to suppress uprisings of indecisive appetites ($7.25).
Every day, Rita's serves up fresh, fruitified Italian ice (around $1.89–$2.89) in more than 30 flavors (several are sugar-free), including strawberry, root beer, Swedish Fish, chocolate chocolate chip, piña colada, vanilla, key lime, and the unearthly RitaBerrious (formerly Mystery Ice). Along with creamy ice, Rita's also sells icy cream. Case in point: Rita's famously frozen old-fashioned custard (around $2.49–$3.59), a robust dish that—like revenge—is best served cold in a cup, cone, or overflowing El Camino truck bed. Rita's custard involves a different freezing process than ice cream and boasts a higher egg to yolk ratio, for a creamy texture that makes regular ice cream feel like gravel sprinkled with sandpaper shreds. Rita's most popular frozen treat, gelati (around $3.45–$4.39), takes its cue from brunch, twilight, and sporks and blends two great things to create an even greater thing—in this case, the flavorful variety of Italian ice with the smoothitude of frozen custard. Rita's also offers an assortment of specialty Misto shakes ($3.49–$3.99), fat-free soft-serve Slenderitas ($2.49–$3.49), and frozen-coffee Ritaccinos ($4.25), all of which make for a tasty treat as well as a deliciously soothing topical treatment for chicken pox.
