The bakers at The Cupcake Diva & Bakery mix made-from-scratch batter for cinnamon rolls, fresh breads, cookies, and pies every day. They also swirl creamy frosting on top of cupcakes before topping them off with a chocolate morsel or perhaps a bit of lime zest. For special occasions, they sculpt their tasty wedding and birthday cakes into edible works of art, and they whip up Christmas sugar cookies that can come pre-decorated or, for the families who want to add their own horns to Santa's head, plain.
For the most snow-like consistency, T-Good's Shaved Ice slices its ice into thin, fluffy flakes. After it's prepared, customers can choose to top this base with as many of the 40 different flavored syrups as they'd like. They can also choose sugar-free options or pair their dessert with ice cream for a creamier treat.
When Tazas Coffee closes at midnight and the shop goes quiet, its award-winning cinnamon rolls are still working. They rise throughout the night so chefs can bake them first thing in the morning and guests can start their own days by biting into the sweet, flaky croissant dough slathered in creamy vanilla butter icing.
Instead of hiring an army of local grandmas, the shop does all its own baking, from the cinnamon rolls down through the blueberry muffins and eight different kinds of cookies. The menu isn't solely sweets, though. It also features omelets, grilled panini sandwiches, and personal pizzas, all of which can be enjoyed with drinks and exotic teas from the shop's espresso bar. Tazas even features indoor and outdoor hookah areas, where smokers can enjoy more than 50 flavors of premium, slow-burn shisha.
With her slate of deli sandwiches, Angela Toler aims to please even the choosiest palate. As the owner and proprietor of The Picky Deli, she oversees a host of tasks, from baking the turkey and ham to cooking and slicing the deli’s meats. Using fresh ingredients, Toler’s staff stacks each sandwich made to order, from classic Reubens to turkey clubs. The deli is open Monday through Friday, and on Fridays, diners can stop by for chicken-sausage gumbo.
