Stomping Grounds Playland is many things at once. Part play center, coffee bar, and restaurant, its target demographic spans generations, all of whom should find plenty to do within its 2,000-square-foot facility. A play structure delights kids with obstacles and colorful tunnels, and an expanded toddler area keeps the youngest visitors occupied. To fuel this fun, the onsite Brewster's Café serves up kid favorites such as hot dogs and mac and cheese.
However, the café has even more options for adults—not to mention a dining area with free WiFi. Baristas pour cappuccino, organic chai tea, and specialty espresso drinks such as white-chocolate mochas. These caffeinated treats complement an array of signature sandwiches and salads. Stomping Grounds Playland also caters to parents with comprehensive party packages; party planners take care of everything, including food, activities, and all the paperwork required to receive a birthday wish.
Early morning sun filters through diaphanous white curtains, bathing a line of customers in a warm glow as they await their drinks. Behind the counter, staff members buzz about, filling cups with floods of steamy tea and coffee while simultaneously chatting with their patrons. So begins another day at Teahouse And Coffee Tapioca Bar, where cheery red walls and cozy chairs beckon guests to sit and quench their thirst late into the evening. The shop churns out more than 150 tea, coffee, and juice drinks ranging from traditional cappuccinos to unique selections such as pineapple gel cream tea, kumquat-lemon juice, and frozen Japanese green tea. Baristas also bolster standard drinks with the addition of brown-sugar- and caramel-laden tapioca pearls hand-plucked from wild pudding cups. As they sip, guests can also snack on cupcakes and muffins and surf the Internet on the shop’s free WiFi.

At BerriBlends, self-serving dessert composers create custom frozen yogurt masterpieces. First, self-directed guests select tart or sweet yogurt flavors ($0.43/oz.). Dessert designers then cloak their cold foundations with walls of chocolate, berries, and other fresh toppings, much like a carpenter building a delicious house that can be disassembled with a spoon and strategic sweet tooth. Those who pursue healthy lifestyles can choose from a plethora of wholesome frozen-yogurt varieties, such as fat-free, low-calorie, diabetic-safe, lactose-safe, pro-biotic, and pro-American. BerriBlends also concocts several smoothies and coffee drinks.
Himalayan pink salt, almond marzipan, Mexican chipotle, Moroccan mint tea—these are just a few of the exotic ingredients that the chocolatiers at Araya Artisan Chocolate cull from around the world so that they can infuse their Venezuelan chocolates with complex and surprising flavors. They strive to emulate French and Belgian styles, complementing the cocoa bean's naturally bitter taste with honey instead of sugar. They make each chocolate by hand in Katy, using only natural ingredients devoid of preservatives, artificial flavors, or glowing red serums pilfered from mad scientists. They even make vegan options. These experts decorate each of the chocolates with colorful designs, adorning peanut butter–berry with bright stripes and adding an enticing dollop of green atop the margarita option. Due to their insistence on hand crafting unique bites, they've earned attention from foodies at My Table and the River Oaks Examiner. They offer authentic French macarons, and have a wide variety of flavors that are imported from France, with gift boxes available as well. Just recently, Araya Artisan Chocolate opened its newest location at the Uptown Park Mall.
