Learning to bake in her grandmother’s kitchen, Anyatta Nicole started selling out cakes to her sister’s coworkers at a local call center. Buoyed by the response she received, Anyatta joined with her mom to create Sinsational Cakes Bakery. The full service sweet shop creates ornate, colorful cakes for any occasion, with a full gallery of their creations available online. Anyatta and her team shape sugar and dough into guitars, cartoon characters, Polo shirts, or adult-themed sweets.
Roots Coffeehouse serves up coffee, teas, and a broad array of espresso-based drinks and complements its potable pleasures with friendly service and a variety of edible options. The shop's menu draws upon three different types of espresso—a single-origin, a blended, and a decaf—to provide savvy sippers with an extra degree of customization to their order. Organic and fair-trade coffee and teas are also available to help keep consciences light and fluffy. Order up a honey vanilla latte ($3.85 for a medium) for a sweet kiss of bee syrup without the danger and mess of personally milking the bees, then pair your vanilla-fueled brainpower with Roots' free WiFi. Frozen drinks such as raspberry mocha or vanilla bean frappes ($4 for a medium) help the overheated mock the impotent sun. A food menu featuring fresh-baked pastries and muffins, as well as a quartet of sandwiches ($7.00), is also available to help customers practice one-handed hunger-avoidance maneuvers.
Spoonfuls of rainbow sprinkles, fruity boba pearls, and slices of fresh fruit decorate the frozen yogurt at Yummy Tummy. But variety doesn't just stop with the toppings. The shop stocks bubble tea as well as treats for nearly every taste and dietary need, including frozen yogurts that are vegan or free of sugar, lactose, and fat. Plus, Yummy Tummy's menu includes classic flavors such as dark chocolate and Tahitian vanilla, plus seasonal varieties such as snickerdoodle and toasted coconut. If brain freeze sets in, customers can warm up by drinking a cup of Lavazza coffee, or by pouring that coffee into a hot water bottle that can then be placed on one's forehead. Throughout the week, Yummy Tummy hosts special events such as movie screenings and frozen yogurt happy hours.
If Tom Carvel's ice-cream truck hadn’t had a flat tire one fateful day during Memorial Day weekend in 1934, he may have never started the country’s first retail ice-cream company. Faced with losing his entire supply of ice cream to the heat, he simply sold it from the side of the road. He was so successful that, years later, he opened his first store on that same site. His ice cream shops soon sprang up across the Northeast, and Tom cemented his place in business lore as the father of one of the country's earliest franchises.
The Carvel brand now runs shops in 25 states, where servers layer their famous chocolate and vanilla ice-cream cakes with crunchies and whip up batches of their soft-serve ice cream each day to create cones, sundaes, and shakes.
