Run by husband-and-wife duo Hien and Amber, the Doughnut Deli serves up an array of fresh, artisan donuts and long johns. Flavors run the gamut from s’more to bacon maple, topped with a syrup frosting, sliced bacon strips, and bits of a lumberjack’s spare flannel. You can also build your own donut and top it with candies or cereals including M&Ms, pretzels, caramel popcorn, and Cocoa Pebbles.

Every Friday, from 9 p.m. to midnight, stop by for a hot blueberry donut; make it a la mode with a scoop of french vanilla ice cream. In addition to its signature treat, the deli also offers fresh sandwiches, croissants, sodas, coffee, and juices. With advanced notice, Doughnut Deli is happy to work with custom orders or special requests.

The Sup Cafe and shop furnish surf 'n' turf enthusiasts with stand-up paddleboards, lessons, and hearty caloric energy from their convenient beach location. Spend an aqueous hour on a stand-up paddleboard (SUP) with the shop’s wide variety of boards, from entry-level stable cruisers to 12-pound racing machines. Stand-up paddleboarding, the groovy great-great-grandmother of modern surfing, uses a one-bladed paddle for skimming across the waves and awkward jousting matches with armed seagulls. Though stand-up paddleboarding is an invigorating activity for most hominids, those younger than 12 or unable to swim proficiently must don a personal flotation device.

The bakers at Frosted Cupcakery employ old-fashioned elbow grease and quality ingredients to condense gigantic gourmet-cake flavor into tiny bite-sized confections. With 14 daily flavors, a handful of seasonally rotating specialties, and a constantly replenished fresh-baked stock throughout the day, Frosted Cupcakery features ample treat opportunities. Royal white cupcakes are crowned with a choice of chocolate, vanilla, nutella, or coconut vanilla buttercream, and red velvet cakes are shrouded in rich cream-cheese frosting. Seasonal flavors such as pumpkin, orange, strawberry, and October flavor-of-the-month orange chocolate chip, topped with orange chocolate buttercream, are only available until the weather cools, forcing cupcake trees to hibernate for the winter.

One of the original pioneers of the yogurt industry, Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt has been whirling yogurt since the early 1980s. A bevy of rotating flavors includes tastes such as just chocolate, peanut-butter cup, café latte, butterscotch, and mango tart. Sample a small bit with a mini ($1.85 for 4 oz.), or take 32 ounces home to share in a quart ($6.15). Traditionally conical edible yogurt containers (small cone $2.40, waffle $3.50) make it possible for hands to hold the frozen delight. At 25–29 calories an ounce, health-conscious consumers can enjoy licks without translating each tongueful into the quantity of jumping jacks or flying starfish impersonations needed to offset it.

Just like the real Paradise, filled with edible angels and knowledge of good and evil trees, Paradis's flavors change with the seasons and the mood of its cows. No day is ever the same, but it will always have inventive flavors for even the most discerning: 2009 saw the introduction of silky ice cream concoctions such as strawberry buttermilk and peanut crunch chocolate chip as well as effusive sorbets such as mint lime and orange chili. One scoop goes for $3.50, milkshakes with two flavors go for $5, and ice cream by the pint ($10) and quart ($20) for parties and Arctic picnics.
