Since the first Friendly's opened in 1935, staff members have been serving up hand-crafted ice cream in scoops, cones, and sundaes alongside juicy beef burgers crowned with crisp lettuce and tomatoes. Now with locations spanning the United States, Friendly's has come a long way from its first modest shop in Massachusetts, which sold double-dip cones for 5 cents. Today, servers scoop ice cream in classic flavors such as chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry and dish out new twists on the favorites, including Fribble soft-serve shakes and Friend-z ice-cream desserts whipped with toppings such as Oreos, Butterfingers, and Reese's peanut-butter cups. They also top crisp belgian waffles with scoops of ice cream and hot caramel and fill dishes with new ice-cream flavors such as Vienna Mocha Chunk and Rockin' Poppin' Cotton Candy.
Behind the grills, cooks build big beef burgers such as the Vermonter with melted vermont white cheddar and maple-pepper bacon on a toasted ciabatta roll. Healthier options include meals under 555 calories, such as the sweet and spicy grilled shrimp over rice pilaf and the chicken-caprese sandwich.
I love the resturant. it's a place were I can continue to be a kid and have fun everyday while doing what I love to do. My staff and I tend to go above and beyond trying to bring you the best product we can. We always try and challenge each other to make a product better. We love food and each other. my staff is amazing.
In order to avoid universe-collapsing paradoxes, Cupcakes Gourmet uses only the finest ingredients, including Madagascar bourbon vanilla, Belgian dark chocolate, sweet-cream butter, organic milk, extra-virgin olive oil, and premium double-wet water to fashion its delectable miniature cake breeds. Cupcakes Gourmet's flavors change with the seasons—the carrot cake drifting from the trees while the chocolate vanilla snows down only to melt away and sprout anew as the zesty lime. When the sun is strongest, café mocha and coconut varietals ripen on the vine. Yearlong stalwarts include the chocolate vanilla, stoplight-bright red velvet, and lovely lemon. Cupcakes Gourmet also spouts out ganache noshers such as the triple chocolate, black and white, and double dark chocolate.
Saxbys' rich array of caffeinated ambrosias, crafted from grade-one arabica beans, joins a bevy of teas and smoothies on the shop's extensive menu. Espresso drinks ($1.70+) include exotic cinnamon lattes and basic cappuccinos, which can be cloaked in frothy crema and 18 dulcet syrups. Two seasoned brewsmiths forge Saxbys' wide selection of roasts from single-origin, fair-trade, and organic beans, which undergo a European roasting process that pampers future mug fillers in cast-iron air-cooled cylinders, preparing cocoa-noted Tanzanian peaberries and italiano blends for beverage Valhalla. Frolattes ($3.70+), a frozen breed of latte rarely found in nature, exist in such flavors as white-chocolate mocha and flank a throng of teas ($1.30+) and fruity smoothies ($3.45+). Stomach-equipped cyborgs can bask in the soothing aura of the shop's free WiFi while noshing on one of the café's fresh pastries or paninis (food is not included with this Groupon).
Bagelicious's 20 varieties of dough wheels increase their edible utility by teaming up with 12 tasty gourmet cream cheeses and keeping an arsenal of pastries and lunchtime sandwiches close by. Silky sheets of vanilla-walnut-raisin and peach cream cheese ($7.25/lb.) blanket soft apple-cinnamon or whole-wheat bagel beds ($0.85/1, $4.15/6, or $8/13), offering taste buds a nutritious place to sleep. The bagel sandwich's two eggs and bacon ($3.50) sizzle melodiously, laying a beat for synchronized eating, and pizza trimmings tango atop midday bagels ($4.85). Meanwhile, mischievous apple fritters ($2.20) and muffins ($2.05) let tongues frolic through meadows of sweet flavor while they hot-wire the jaw and cruise away.
