At Ace's Gourmet Paninis, culinary-school grad Chef Van presides over an unlikely marriage between the Italian-born panini and the flavors of Southern comfort fare. He presses only quality ingredients into his sandwiches, including three signature paninis loaded with chicken, beef brisket, or pulled pork slathered in house barbecue sauce. His menu also flaunts a separate breakfast section that highlights paninis and burritos stuffed with more eggs and meats than a vending machine for bodybuilders. His renditions of childhood favorites, such as peanut butter and jelly, even please pintsize palates. Patrons can settle in to surf free WiFi in the eatery or grab a takeout container to feast at home.:

The resident chocolatiers at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory massage creamy loafs of chocolate on sturdy marble slabs daily, building a menu from rich ingredients such as whole cream and real butter. For additional culinary theatrics, cheer on the expert orchard orderlies as they dip Granny Smiths into thick, bubbling caramel from a traditional copper kettle. Caramel apples range from classically simple to loaded with toppings ($3.95–$7.95), accommodating different degrees of decadence more tastefully than a pair of convertible mink pants. Easily transport poppable sweets such as chocolate-dipped strawberries ($11.95/half-pound) or a tongue-melting litany of freshly fangled fudges ($6.95/half-pound). While today's Groupon is not valid toward sugar-free chocolate, which is not made in-store, the confection wizards can also brew batches of treats that provide the taste of chocolate without the frantic dance routines of an uncontrollable sugar rush.
