Each Dolce Vita Gelato Cafe honors the dessert's Italian ancestry with an authentic recipe and a repertoire of 42 kosher-friendly flavors. Best-selling classics include real-bean vanilla and Belgian–style chocolate, as well as fresh, fruit-hoarding varieties such as strawberry, mango, and lemon; trailblazing palates may prefer foreign tastes such as the dulce de leche or chocolate Ferrero Rocher. Because Dolce Vita's gelato contains only 8% butterfat, the sweet, silky treats make a perfect snack option for those watching their waistline or those who typically enjoy their dessert with a side of bacon. Wrap hands around a small cup or sugar cone ($3.75–$5) or a large cup or waffle cone ($6.50 each) to get a taste of a spoon-optional sustenance that drives ice cream to shame and popsicles back to their former careers as extremely perishable traffic batons . Gelato prices may vary among store locations.
Cushy Cakes conjures up sweet sensations with the lighter-than-air lusciousness of the Andes' famed cotton-candy clouds. Using organic butter, milk, and eggs, Cushy Cakes commandant Melissa Jarquin will whip up a dozen cupcakes ($20) in flavors such as Bananarama, the key-lime-pie-tinged Southernmost Cupcake, and Betty's Carrot Cake, or in the customized flavor of your choosing. Sweet tooths seeking the cream of Cushy Cakes' crop should opt for the Cafe Con Leche, a flavor based on the beloved breakfast coffee, or the Stout Cupcake with Kahlua frosting, made with the beloved breakfast beer Guinness. Gluten-free and vegan cupcakes are also available.
Though you may not garner it from the name, the menu at Bagelworks goes far beyond their eponymous doughy diameter. Onion and honey whole-wheat bagels, made onsite, hold up on their own with a schmear of cream cheese but work just as well bolstering deli fare such as house salads, eggy breakfast dishes, and fish platters. Other items on the expansive menu include grilled cheese, pastrami paninis, and pancakes.
The gourmet treats at Häagen-Dazs delight discerning palates with a variety of frozen goodies in indulgent flavors.

Each Dazzler's three scoops of ice cream settle under whipped-cream peaks, with flavors including Dulce Split, Mint Chip, and Rocky Road ($6.95). Patrons select toppings, sauces, and ice-cream flavors to form customizable sundaes ($5.50-$6.95), or deploy straws to taste a Sorbet Sipper ($5.95), which is made of sorbet and then sipped.
