At DeLuca Gelato, sweet savants whip up a staggering selection of creamy desserts infused with Italian flavors and blended with fresh cream and high-quality fruits, nuts, and chocolates. Gelato bears a family resemblance to ice cream, except the denser Italian sweet contains a lower percentage of fat and requires a higher serving temperature. DeLuca Gelato churns out a rotating selection of 36 daily flavors, including at least nine dairy-free sorbettos and two sugar-free options for diabetics and dutiful dentists' progeny.

Inspired in every way by the culture of Italy, Caffespresso celebrates the arts. Baristas steam up delicious espresso drinks with intricate flower or heart designs floating on their surface. Cooks grill delicious paninis or toss savory salads and artfully pair them with Italian wines or a delicious pastry for dessert. The owners bedeck every inch of the wall in framed photos and paintings, and musicians set the air aquiver with their acoustic stylings.

For those interested in delving further into the coffeehouse's Italian roots, the venue also hosts language classes and travel seminars. Visitors can even request an Italian board game to play at their table as they listen to music or gobble up warm cookies.

Tropical Smoothie Café's wholesome smoothies are filled to the gills with fresh fruit, juices, yogurt, chocolate, nuts, and healthful supplements, minimizing the crushing guilt of dessert consumption to a soft heartbeat emanating from the floorboards. Puréed potions such as pomegranate plunge (pomegranate, banana, strawberries, and cranberry; $4.79) are stuffed with super fruit, and low-fat options, such as mango magic (mango, pineapples, and non-fat yogurt; $4.29), trick gullible taste buds into believing that they are traversing a candy factory full of whipped-cream lollipops. Supercharged smoothies are stocked with a healthy dose of supplements, such as the kiwi citrus green tea's antioxidant-laden matcha charge or the muscle blaster's whey or soy protein ($4.79 each). Individual supplements can also be added to any other smoothie ($0.79 extra), boosting its magic points by +10.
