Go Bananas Frozen Yogurt hopes to make adult patrons feel better about eating something sweet by serving up premium yogurt chockfull of beneficial live and active cultures. A proprietary two-step production process ensures each cup of creamy fro-yo—which can be low-fat or no-fat—contains high levels of probiotics, which help promote a healthy digestive system.
But all kids care about is that they can choose from more than 12 rotating yogurt flavors and more than 75 toppings, including fresh fruit, candy, and cereal. They can then take their fro-yo creations or refreshing sorbet over to Go Banana's lounge area and plop down in one of the comfy chairs or create art on the chalkboard. And parents can take advantage of the shop's free WiFi.
Tucked away in the kitchen of each Paris Baguette, bakers trained in French techniques craft buttery, flaky croissants and tart crusts, and their success at this has earned attention from the likes of the New York Times. In addition to pastries and sweets such as mocha rice balls, the bakers knead bread for their namesake baguettes and yeasty creations that hold an Asian twist, such as red-bean-paste-filled donuts. The experts also create fondant-cloaked cakes that venture beyond classic flavors into green tea, cappuccino, and sweet potato, delighting partygoers bored of the same laminated sheet cake that makes its appearance at each year’s birthday celebration.
To wash down these treats, patrons sip cups of java or more exotic drinks such as wheatgrass and black-sesame lattes, persimmon smoothies, and bubble tea. At lunchtime, many locations layer sandwiches, filling hungry stomachs with croque monsieurs and baguettes stuffed with chicken and pesto.
