The team at Big Apple Bagels builds chewy, ring-shaped bread bites from scratch and wakes palates with steaming cups of Brewster's coffee. The menu teems with eats inspired by New York City deli fare, such as bagel-based club sandwiches and nearly a dozen styles of cream cheese—including three whipped varieties and one milked directly from a somersaulting cow. Bagel flavors range from plain and sesame, while swiss melts warm palates with gooey layers of cheese. Gourmet muffins introduce mouths to fluffy, cake-like texture kept moist—yet low in cholesterol—with soybean oil.
For the most snow-like consistency, T-Good's Shaved Ice slices its ice into thin, fluffy flakes. After it's prepared, customers can choose to top this base with as many of the 40 different flavored syrups as they'd like. They can also choose sugar-free options or pair their dessert with ice cream for a creamier treat.
Repicci's authentic Italian-ice creations use flavorsome flavors to make icy-cold treats free of fat, cholesterol, and dairy. Allow tongues to embark on a vacation to a mini iceberg with a dish holding a fresh-served single ($3) or double ($5) scoop in one of many fruity or dinner-spoiling flavors: blue raspberry, lemon, piña colada, creamsicle, green apple, cherry, and blue raspberry are some of the recent resident flavors. Like candy bars or individually wrapped shrimp, premade, 8-ounce cups ($3) and 4-ounce push tubes ($1.50) stuff a tasty treat in a convenient package. Up to eight people can nosh on the edible mouth air conditioners upon Repicci's patio, replete with free WiFi, sunlit conversations, and automatic appreciation for the outdoors.
The bakers at The Cupcake Diva & Bakery mix made-from-scratch batter for cinnamon rolls, fresh breads, cookies, and pies every day. They also swirl creamy frosting on top of cupcakes before topping them off with a chocolate morsel or perhaps a bit of lime zest. For special occasions, they sculpt their tasty wedding and birthday cakes into edible works of art, and they whip up Christmas sugar cookies that can come pre-decorated or, for the families who want to add their own horns to Santa's head, plain.
Ruby Lorraine Feagan, better known as Tootie, began her business by building one pie at a time. Her reputation gained momentum after winning a succession of baking contests throughout Texas hill country. Her signature apple pie, containing up to 6 pounds of apples, was the foundation for Tootie Pie Company. Today, Tootie and her daughter continue to ensure the quality of Tootie Pie Co. Gourmet Caf?'s 12 signature pie flavors.
Inside Tootie's caf?, the menu ranges from paninis and gourmet sandwiches to soups and breakfast items. Sips of house coffee and espresso-based mochas clear palates between bites better than vigorously shaking them Etch A Sketch?style.
The confectionery wizards at Snowflake Donuts whip up an assortment of sugary indulgences bound to perk up any palate. Saunter in for breakfast to nosh on a signature glazed donut ($0.65) or string together a batch of them to create a snack bandolier. Sweet-toothed patrons will feel like they're at a rave hosted by Willy Wonka as they sample the array of pastries including apple fritters ($1.29), cinnamon rolls ($1.29), danishes ($1.59), and kolaches ($1.89).
