At @Café, cappuccinos, café cubanos, and other classic, steamy sips made with Italian-imported Lavazza beans accompany European-style sandwiches and decadently topped dessert vaffles. Nosh tosts or croissants loaded with sweet or salty stuffing—Nutella or peanut butter fill sweet sandwiches, and ham, cheese, and salami can be mixed, matched, or monster mashed inside salty bites. A euro-style dessert vaffle, which differs from a regular waffle only by a single chromosome, comes crowned with a single topping. Pairs linger to surf freely flowing WiFi in @Café's spacious interior, lit by bright orange accent walls in the daytime and a blue neon glow during after-dark hours.
Jenn, Laura, and Sheryl are the smiling faces behind the scenes at Mmmm Delicious Cupcakes. Using recipes passed down from two generations, they craft made-from-scratch, hand-scooped cupcakes from ingredients such as Madagascar bourbon vanilla, real cream butter, and whole milk. The result is tantalizing flavors such as red velvet with signature cream cheese frosting, and their signature wedding cake cupcake with almond cake, white buttercream frosting, and crystal accents. They also craft daily rotating and seasonal flavors such as blueberry white chocolate, lemon blueberry, and chocolate-covered orange, overstuffing each treat with ingredients such as tasty candies, premium cocoa powders, and cookie crumbles to make sure each bite is filled with delicious morsels.
Happy Endings Cupcakes & Cafe, a cozy, deli-style café, fills tummies and sates sweet teeth with delectable lunches and treats. Boar's Head sandwiches and hot soups, such as red pepper with smoked gouda, help diners to refuel before afternoon work, and coffee and espresso alleviate morning fatigue. Moist cupcakes in 22 rotating flavors, such as red velvet and maple bacon, finish off meals at the café or nestle inside carry-out boxes to outfit guests with treats for birthday parties, bridal showers, and reunions with fellow traffic-court jurists.
The coffee is locally roasted. The ice cream is locally made. The weekend entertainment comes from local musicians. The Witch's Brew keeps everything close to home so patrons can support their community while enjoying the atmosphere of a classic coffeehouse and all the treats that come with it. Mugs and glasses brim with espresso made from organic, fair-trade coffee beans, cool refreshments such as the raspberry iced tea of the Ruby Slipper, and even a selection of specialty cocktails, local wines, and craft beers. Meanwhile, frozen desserts made by Old Meeting House Ice Cream come in more than 10 flavors and bedeck a number of creative sundaes, splits, and shakes. The unique eatery is equipped with outdoor seating and free WiFi, which helps busy diners work on a laptop while savoring a freshly crafted sandwich or let their freshly crafted sandwich check its email.
After greasing the Slip 'n Slide with vegetable oil and shedding winter's fluffy bathrobe and insulated socks, the best way to celebrate summer's approach is with a handful of velvety-soft frozen custard. The Ritter's menu features a cast of five to seven rotating daily flavors, including everything from fruit-based favorites such as cherry cordial and fresh banana to candy-inspired creations like caramel Snickers swirl. Order a cone of the flavor du jour ($1.99 and up), or opt for a signature Glacier ($3.29 and up), Ritter's frozen custard mixed with your topping of choice and served upside down to confuse your already delicate perception of reality and emphasize the delicacy's extreme thickness. If a list of 25+ toppings dizzies your decision-making noodle, submit your fate to the friendly ice-cream slingers and opt for a pre-designed signature sundae ($4.29) such as the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup–filled, whipped-cream-topped peanut-butter mountain. Celebrate your newfound superpowers and exploit your nemeses' weaknesses for chocolate and caramel with a frozen Snickers pie ($25.99).
