Founded in 2000 by college buddies Don McKinney and James Clary, Freckles Frozen Custard crafts its creamy creations using milk and eggs chosen from Midwest farms. Vanilla custard blended with Tahitian and Madagascar vanilla beans mixes with toppings such as hot fudge, bananas, and Twinkies, while specialty concoctions include the Brown Derby, a fusion of custard, brownie, and fudge intended to be worn atop the head. Elsewhere on the menu, colorful scoops of italian ice adorn cones with fruit flavors, and creamy malts, shakes, and floats fill cups. Festive custard pies and cakes can be customized to celebrate special occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries, or the colonization of Atlantis.
Whirring and banging, whirring and banging—these mechanical sounds could come from a factory churning out machine-made pastries by the hundreds. At Kupcakz, though, a slower, more organic chorus fills the air as Doreen Durano blends, chops, and stirs ingredients for small batches of cupcakes by hand. Drawing upon studies in baking and pastry at San Francisco's California Culinary Institute, Doreen works with her team to craft each and every cake from scratch, armed with the items found in gourmet kitchens, such as creamy Plugra butter, much-revered Valrhona chocolate, and booster seats for stout kings. Each creation gets a whimsical name: the Morning Buzz's moniker comes from a base soaked in rich espresso, and the Sooner Than Later hints at a general timeframe for biting into cream-cheese frosting and red-velvet cake.
Camille's Sidewalk Caf? is a caf? focused on quality food in a fast casual atmosphere.

Pure Cafe's home-delivered meals, which are usually large enough for two people, consist of uncooked vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds that harmoniously merge to form American, Mexican, and Asian dishes. The executive chef and owner Cynthia Beavers assembled these lineups of living and raw ingredients with the aim of providing people with enzymes and nutrients vital for immune-system resiliency, energy, and the strength to lift cars off trapped kittens. Examples of typical entrees include breaded chicken fingers with parsnip mashed potatoes and honey mustard, and a broccoli and cheese soup made with the chef's garlic-infused homemade queso and layered with vegetables and spices. Top off pleased palates with delectable desserts such as frosted chocolate cake and a rich banana-cream pie.
