Using only the freshest ingredients and imported Belgian chocolate, Three Tiers will be happy to bake expertly crafted creations for your special occasion, like a deliciously verbalized Scrabble board cake or an almost-too-cute-to-eat ladybug cake that will come to life if you allow tears to land on it.
Elegant Carriages escorts visitors along scenic Cincinnati byways in exquisite horse-drawn carriages. Before or after dinner, riders can get picked up straight from the restaurant and enjoy the peaceful streets of Cincinnati in an open-air buggy without the roofed confines of a car or paddywagon. Drivers are dapper, horses are groomed and pro-neigh, and the route is carefully guided to ensure maximum safety and sightseeing surprises.
Cake Towne's pastry barons heap frosting and chocolate onto fresh, never-frozen treats. The shop's truffle-esque cake balls, chocolate-dipped mixtures of cake and frosting, dress themselves in flavors both traditional and surprising, from salted caramel and chocolate raspberry to spicy carrot. Once coated, the treats go for a dip in rivers of dark, white, or milk chocolate. Stick candles into each of these dozen pastry spheres (a $10.50 value) to create a birthday cake befitting a juggler turning a multiple of 12. A dozen chocolate-covered strawberries (a $24 value) delight taste buds and add a racy edge to oft-wholesome fruit. Free WiFi wafts throughout the shop, allowing patrons to use their sticky fingers to look up how to clean frosting off a keyboard.

What made you want to work with food? When did you first develop that passion?
It had always been my family's dream to bring a delicious frozen frozen yogurt and ice cream to Blue Ash. We have done a lot of research over the years, and we feel that we've found a quality product that will "wow" customers.
Are there any dishes on the menu you consider to be a hidden gem—not necessarily the most popular, but surprisingly delicious?
We offer a product called the flavor burst. You can choose from eight different flavors, and the machine will put a ring of colorful flavor around your ice cream. The kids love the exciting colors and the parents love the wonderful flavors it adds to their treat.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
This is a family owned and operated business, and our staff is available to assist customers in any way possible.
Diane's Cake, Candy and Cookie Supplies, formerly Mergard’s, whips up delectable baked goodies in a rainbow of customizable varieties. With seven cake flavors and 15 filling options, the bakery's bevy of cupcakes takes a wild variety of forms to satisfy even the most rogue sweet teeth. Patrons can mix and match flavors to create a scrumptious cupcake combination, such as red velvet and cream cheese, chocolate and bavarian cream, or lemon and red raspberry. Alternatively, customers can forgo the cupcakes in favor of noshing on a saccharine cornucopia of two dozen sugar cookies. Available in a plethora of shapes and designs, Diane’s custom cutout cookies make welcome gifts at baby showers, birthday parties, or diet-protest rallies. Orders need to be placed seven days in advance to ensure baked goods receive proper taste-bud-pleasing training.

Sate an early-morning sweet tooth with bagel flavors such as french toast, orange-cranberry, or strawberry or fuel up with savory varieties such as caraway, bialy, or sunflower ($.99+ each; $10.09+ for a baker’s dozen). Sandwiches, such as the tuna salad ($6.79) or PB&J ($2.89), come bookended by the bread of the day or a bagel of your choice, and six soups dot the menu, each served alongside bagel thins ($3.65–$4.30). Guests can also show off refined, mature tastes to old college buddies by chugging an entire cup of coffee or tea (1.69+). Many of the deli’s delectable offerings are also sold in bulk for take-home feasts.
