A red brick exterior, spacious sidewalk patio, and delectable café menu highlight the charming European appeal of Rue Lafayette, whose beginnings were documented on a recent episode of Renovation Realities on HGTV. Early-morning strollers, comptrollers, and world-weary street mimes can start their morning of artfully aimless ambling with Rue Lafayette's sweet, flaky croissants imported from France. The chocolate croissant ($2.25) matches particularly well with large cups of the café's drip coffee ($2.25) or frothy cappuccino ($3.55). Lunchers, meanwhile, can feast on the quiche ($6.99) and mix it together in their digestive centrifuge with the sinfully tasty croissant bread pudding ($5.99). Since Rue Lafayette's dishes rotate with the stately dance of the seasons, each polite café employee will cheerfully lay out today's recommendations, tomorrow's libations, and yesterday's neutron radiation gyrations. The café's mad scientists have also combined breakfast and lunch into an unholy (yet delicious) monstrosity known as brunch, which gets unleashed from its chains every Saturday and Sunday.
Amber and JoyLynn, founders of The Joy of Cake Bakers, both grew up with a love for baking and a belief that dessert and happiness go hand-in-hand. They work with their clients so that they can customize each cake to match their personalities and ruling planets before toting their visually appealing confections for delivery.
Kakao's chocolate bars and barks, truffles, and other confections are handmade on-site and feature local ingredients, including Mattingly's beer, sunshine, and feelings. While some menacing candy makers inject artificial space-whale fat into their whale-fat pies, Kakao eschews all artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. Fresh cream, honey, and sugar create the buxom, butyraceous taste of its caramels ($6 for a four-pack), and chocolate bark ($3) is chipped off the cacao tree with an axe.
It takes three easy steps to complete a treat at Flying Cow Frozen Yogurt. First, step up to the self-service machines and pour out a generous helping of low-calorie, calcium-chocked frozen yogurt, which offers constantly changing flavors. Whether you choose classic chocolate, vanilla, or georgia peach makes no difference—each flavor is filled with active cultures, which can aid in digestion. Next, sidle up to the toppings bar where up to 30 toppings await and choose from fresh fruit, candy, or nuts, making sure to cap things off with sweet sauces including white chocolate and cream-cheese icing. The implicit third step involves grabbing a spoon and digging in until the cows come home, or at least until they call to say they're running late.
