It's no small feat to whip up one of The Olive Branch Café's gourmet pizzas. The painstaking process begins long before lunchtime, with chefs preparing dough fresh for the day each morning. There's barely a moment to rest before orders begin flying in and the pizza makers spring into action, showering crusts with housemade sauces and high-quality cheeses. Their brows furrowed in concentration, their hands blurs, they layer pizzas with fresh garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, and fine spanish olives. Once the pies arrive triumphantly to the dining room, the chefs turn their attention to thick muffuletta subs, plump meatball calzones, and the jambalaya pastas that caught the attention of Gambit’s Best of New Orleans guide.

Out in the casual dining room, beneath warm red walls peppered with abstract art, guests clink glasses, feeling more content than a robot in a microchip factory. There, owner Russell "Rusty" Autry often strolls around the room, greeting newcomers and exchanging jokes with regulars.

Armed with just a single, generations-old cookie recipe, Great American Cookies opened its first store in 1977, and the rest is history. Today, the franchise boasts locations in malls across the country and nabbed a coveted spot on Entrepreneur magazine’s 2012 list of Top 500 Franchises in the baked-goods category. The shop’s reputation grew, and so did its menu as chefs churned out a mouthwatering roster of gourmet-cookie recipes, each created and carefully tested in Atlanta. The tempting options now include snickerdoodle, peanut butter with M&M’s, and chewy pecan supreme, as well as freshly baked fudge and cheesecake brownies and cookie sandwiches stuffed with frosting. The real showstoppers, however, are the giant chocolate-chip cookie cakes, which can be customized with sweet, celebratory messages or shopping lists penned in colorful icing.

After 27 years of continued business, Cucos is now under enthusiastic new ownership eager to dish up heaping platters of Louisiana-Mexican cuisine. Order up something savory from the teeming variety of menu options. Spinach or chicken flautas ($7.95) with sweet-chili dipping sauce snuff burgeoning grumbles, and entrees of carne-asada fajitas ($13.95) and, at the opposite end of the meat spectrum, the vegetarian burrito ($7.95), come flanked with your choice of two sides, including Mexican corn, rice, black beans, or fries. If you prefer to mold your own bowls from old records instead of using bourgeois china patterns, Cucos accommodates your bohemian creativity with build-your-own combo platters that include two items for $8.95 or three items for $9.95, similarly sided and brimming over with your choice of enchiladas, hard- or soft-shell tacos, tostadas, tamales, quesadillas, and flautas. With two convenient locations and a family-friendly atmosphere, the taqueria is an ideal gathering spot for friends, family, or caravans of hungry Victorian street urchins to enjoy a generously portioned Mexican meal.

After meals, rattle stomach estates one more time with a deluge of chocolate and frosting from the Oreo brownie sundae ($5.45), one of three sacchariferous dessert options.

Fourteen of Tutti Frutti's treasure trove of frozen-yogurt flavors grace the shop's daily selection of desserts, chilling taste buds and flecking tongues with a choice of more than 50 toppings. The staff prepares the self-serve, pay-by-weight yogurt in a choice of tart or creamy flavors that complement the selection of fruit, nut, and candy toppings. Tutti Frutti encourages democratic principles by allowing every patron to create and enjoy their own delectable masterpiece without having to smudge self-portraits onto fruit roll-ups. The roster of cold treats has included kiwi, peach, and red velvet, and the probiotic-filled yogurts offer a healthier iced alternative than traditional ice creams. Tutti Frutti, like an airline, maintains an international presence, only serves peanuts to augment the enjoyment of its primary service, and offers outdoor seating.
