Opening a closet at a restaurant typically means finding a mop bucket, but opening A Dash of Panache’s vanity closet means entering a costume wonderland. Stocked with jewelry, boas, and pastel-hued sunglasses, the lilac-walled closet brims with costumes clients can don for tea in the French-deco tea room, named “Best Tea House” by the A-List—among many accolades. The eatery serves more than 50 flavors of tea to tables draped in black tablecloths and white doilies, complementing their brews with petite sandwiches, scones and pastries on crystal plates. The 1920’s-era building also houses a family café, where visitors can nosh on sandwiches, salads and soups, and ice cream, rather than the typical family meal—the contents of a minivan glovebox. Beyond the family cafe, the back of the building has been converted into a party room, ideal for themed kid’s birthday parties.
The cake decorators at Nothing Bundt Cakes adorn their bundt cakes with a similar motif: thick stripes of white frosting that fan out like petals on a daisy. But atop the cake’s hollow center, they insert colorful flourishes such as bright polka-dotted bows, silk flowers, and tiny placards for every conceivable occasion. For an even more memorable presentation, they happily arrange balloon bouquets that complement their cakes’ color schemes. Though presentation is paramount, Nothing Bundt Cakes’ bakers don’t shirk taste: they use fresh eggs, real butter, and real cream cheese to concoct flavors such as pecan praline or white chocolate raspberry.
Additionally, inside the cheerful dark brown and pastel-hued storefront, patrons can peruse ’50s-era baking accessories such as cake tins and Mayfair cake stands that conjure nostalgic memories of poodle skirts, Cadillacs, and poodles in skirts driving Cadillacs.
Since opening its first shop in 1981, TCBY has mesmerized millions with mountains of creamy frozen yogurt. Drumming up excitement for low-fat treats was a distinct challenge back then, when ice cream ruled the dessert scene and bundt cake helmed the Senate. Today, the franchise shapes the treat's future with innovations such as frozen greek yogurt, which sports more than 8 grams of protein per half-cup serving. More than 25 varieties of yogurt and sorbet rotate through more than 450 stores nationwide, swirling from self-serve machines at the Folsom and Roseville locations. Flavors range from classics such as old-fashioned vanilla to modern marvels such as cake batter and root-beer float. To accommodate dieters and diners with sugar sensitivities, TCBY sweetens five different flavors with calorie-free sucralose. Filled with fruits, candies, and bite-size baked goods, a toppings bar brims with color and texture, like a rainbow made of extra-coarse sandpaper.

More than 20 types of golden-brown pancakes populate The Original Pancake House’s menu alongside omelets, waffles, and other hearty American breakfast dishes. Since 1953, the family business’s morning specialties have been prepared with a commitment to real ingredients such as pure whipping cream, hard-wheat unbleached flour, and butter made from fresh sweet cream. Powdered sugar lines the rims of oven-baked dutch baby pancakes, and granny-smith apples simmer in oven-baked pancakes. Unique ingredients add distinction to house specialties such as gourmet crepes garnished with sweet cherry-wine sauce. To accentuate the flavors of each meal, The Original Pancake House pours full glasses of fresh-squeezed orange juice, a Southern staple, and brews its own signature coffee blend.
From its cheerful bright green and purple confines, OMG! Yogurt offsets reality's naturally bitter flavor with a rotating lineup of 10 yogurt flavors (updated on the company’s Facebook page and more than 100 toppings, as well as hot chocolate, bulk candy, and fruit bars. Kick things off by choosing a taste-bud-tickling flavor such as red-velvet cake or pomegranate-raspberry tart ($0.39 per ounce) and then burying it beneath an avalanche of thin mints, chocolate-chip cookie dough, and patriotic ingredients like warm apple pie, baseballs, and bald-eagle feathers. As part of the shop's communal vibe, customers can write their own recommendations for flavors and toppings on the Fun Wall's giant chalkboard. OMG! Yogurt also stocks a different sugar-free flavor and dairy-free flavor on tap each day. OMG! Yogurt is open until 11 p.m.—so moviegoers at the nearby Blue Oaks Cinema 16 can swing by after the show to build an edible yogurt bust of Johnny Depp's head that perfectly captures his gummy-worm hair and Oreo-cookie eyes.
Every day since “Daddy Dave” Leatherby Sr. and his wife, Sally, opened the first Leatherby’s Family Creamery 30 years ago, the shop has been churning out fresh ice cream layered in sweet sauces straight from the candy kettle. Milk, cream, and sugar form the base of Leatherby’s more than 45 flavors, which range from staples such as chocolate and strawberry to more exotic varieties including mocha almond fudge and spumoni. Inspired by family recipes that date back a half-century, these frosty treats come in cones, shakes, malts, and sodas, as well as in heaping sundaes and banana splits, the largest of which tips the scales at 54 ounces. Leatherby’s menu has expanded over time, and includes savory options such as sandwiches, burgers, soups, and salads.
