Spin Dessert Cafe's chefs know a thing or two about sweets. And savoury bites. And, for that matter, everything in between, extending beyond flavour into sight and scent. A glance at their dessert selection and it's obvious how deep their sense of detail goes: more than a dozen house-made ice creams drip with sauces and chocolate shavings, cakes shine with a level of moisture usually only seen in Aquaman's swimming pool, and sweet crepes come speckled with fruity bites. Then there are the savoury crepes, which fold in cheeses and fresh veggies, and thin-crust pizzas dappled with tomato sauce or pesto, all washed down with milkshakes and aromatic coffee drinks.
Inside MODO Fruit & Tea House's modern, single-aisle cafe, guests cozied up in booths sip on bubble teas, nibble on fried snacks, and satisfy their sweet cravings with spoonfuls of ice cream. The snack shop's menu of Chinese-inspired eats offers patrons a variety of plates to curb their sweet or salty cravings, such as fried squid balls and BBQ sausage to mocha mousse cake and green tea brick toast. Patrons can wash down their treats with more than 40 beverage options, which include honeydew smoothies, papaya milk shakes, mango slushes, and lychee green tea, named after the newest shade of green crayon.
More than just a fro-yo place, Berry Mix Frozen Yogurt’s staff blends cool smoothies, bubble teas, and slushes to create healthy and satisfying frozen treats. With self-serve frozen yogurt in flavours ranging from classic strawberry to more unusual flavours such as taro, guests can customize their creations by visiting the toppings bar to load up on fresh fruit, gummies, and hot fudge strategically drizzled to spell 'hot fudge.'
Jennifer Best couldn't sleep. A bout of fibromyalgia was keeping her wide awake, and though she experimented with allopathic and naturopathic sleep remedies, it was no use. Then she tried something new: a tea blend called Sweet Dreams. The brew was so effective that not only did it give Jennifer some much-needed shut-eye, but by morning it had inspired her to change careers. She explored the local loose-leaf-tea market and was amazed to find how many good varietals were out there, varietals she thought others might appreciate the way she had appreciated Sweet Dreams.
Jennifer started small, founding Steeped and Infused in 2007 as an online store that sold 20 different teas. But her fan base blossomed, and today the website?which now sells roughly 70 varieties. Like the queen's childhood toy box, her inventory includes everyday black, green, and rooibos teas, but also features yerba mate and pu-erh?a centuries old Chinese blend made from high-quality large leaves. She complements these with a small selection of accessories, such as tea filters and mesh steeping balls.
Little nuggets of pearl sugar caramelize during baking, making Wanda's made-to-order Li?ge-style waffles different from the typical Belgian style. The dough is infused with vanilla, maple, or strawberry flavour, and the waffles can be crowned with toppings such as Nutella, strawberries, or caramel. Toasted sandwiches, such as the croque monsieur and the signature chicken with thai sauce, sate savoury teeth, whereas espresso and coffee drinks brewed with beans from Illy wash it all down with more refinement than sucking on a garden hose.
The Marshmallow Factory, born after an inspiring marshmallow landed in a fateful latte, invites guests to create their own airy desserts from a bounty of flavoured marshmallow creams. Within the technicolor, sweet-smelling shop, guests can select a base for their dessert composition, filling a cup, tart, biscuit, or chocolate shell with flavoured fluff before layering on a choice of 20 toppings such as sprinkles, gummy bears, or powered sugar. The sweet cream can also coat fresh fruit or foam down in a coffee or hot chocolate.
