Whether you lack teeth, time, or a taste for chewing your fruit, Smoothie Creations can whip you up a drinkable feast that'll help keep scurvy at bay while working out the cheek muscles necessary for blowing powerful raspberries. To concoct a sturdy smoothie, start with a foundation of either ice cubes, low-fat yogurt, or soy milk. From there, the creative control rests in your hands, mind, and panting tongue. Elect a preconceived potion such as a Pineorange Pleaser, combining pineapples and bananas with a collision of orange and pineapple nectars, or opt for a Mo Chafee fusion of house coffee and decadent chocolate to attack the day with the fury of a gentle, focused tornado. In the event that your desires require an undiscovered pairing, the friendly smoothie sorcerers at Smoothie Creations will gladly mix a custom creation from available materials.
Espresso Pit Stop Girls' baristas brew a menu of hot and iced beverages using South American coffee beans and Italian espresso inside a colorful, 1950s-themed café and drive-thru. Caffeinate with 10 12-ounce or 16-ounce hot Checkered Flag coffees (up to an $18.50 value), iced javas (up to a $24 value), or, like blocks of ice wrapped in blankets, a combination of hot and cold. Infuse percolated sippables with a shot of vanilla or peppermint flavor ($0.50 extra) to make them match the vibrancy emanating from the store’s bright-pink walls, checkered tile floor, and shiny metallic counter. In addition to brewed thirst quenchers, Espresso Pit Stop Girls blends espresso-based drinks, such as lattes and mochas, and crafts fresh, homemade pastries and sandwiches.
CorsageCakes and Things' selection of freshly prepared gourmet cupcakes tantalizes taste buds with sweet, soft cake bottoms and creamy frosting tops. The cupcakes come in a choice of six flavors that include time-honored favorites such as chocolate, lemon, and yellow cake with buttercream frosting as well as red velvet, carrot cake, and banana with cream-cheese frosting. The thick braids of cream twist across each cupcake top in lavish decorative swirls, which, like a poodle wearing a powdered wig, provide a sophisticated counterpoint to the simple fluffiness beneath. After selecting a flavor, cake-cravers place their order and then wait a pastry-less 24 hours before picking up their box of 12 freshly constructed confections.
Owner Misty Scott creates delectable handheld sweets that represent her childhood baking experiences with her grandmother. Bling Bakery's cupcakes include more than 20 flavors made with fresh ingredients and zero flavors made with shredded newspaper. Double-chocolate blasts sweet teeth with a cocoa-spouting hose, peach cobbler triggers memories of living in a Georgia diner, and the Cinnycoco combines the sweetness of chocolate with the kick of cinnamon. Gone are the obnoxious protestations that a slice of cake is too big. Because cupcakes fit neatly into your hand, you'll be too consumed with the childlike delight of devouring the artful edibles to think about blown diets and foreign occupation. Place your order by phone or email.

Steep your brain with flavorful promises of a menu to plot out an early-morning caffeine infusion, mid-day lunch treat, or late night drive-by brainwiring.

Chug their namesake with a cup of Café Phoenix, a mocha made with their signature locally produced chocolate syrup and an extra shot of espresso ($3.60), or hammer your endocrine system with the indulgent excesses of their Stuporball—two kinds of custom-blended coffee, two different chocolate syrup infusions, and an extra shot of espresso (up to $4).
