Nestled in a frosting-pink house, this cozy bakery whips up creative confections to satisfy the sweetest of teeth. Easily handheld cupcakes are made fresh from scratch daily, trading out artificial ingredients and preservatives for delectable gourmet flavors. Choose from Lola standbys such as coconut, Belgian milk chocolate, and Madagascar vanilla, or sample a seasonal specialty such as gingerbread topped with lemon cream-cheese frosting or orange creamsicle filled with authentic ice-cream truck calliope music. Lola's flavor lab creates new tastes all the time, so call ahead or stop by to organize your own bountiful batch.
The staple of any coffee shop is the coffee. But at Dolce's bistro, the caffeinated bean shares the spotlight with freshly made sushi. From nigiri to specialty rolls, each handmade dish is stuffed with a variety of seafood—including Atlantic smoked salon, spicy jumbo lump crab, and tempura whitefish—before being paired with pineapple, avocado, and honey wasabi sauce. The staff keeps busy at a dark wood counter, brewing java and splashing in single, double, and triple shots. They serve noncaffeinated drinks in the form of fruit-based smoothies, and their italian sodas are authentically Italian, like Ferraris, Roberto Benigni, and objects that lean.
Smoothie King smoothies combine fresh fruit, natural juices, and special nutritional enhancers into more than 90 flavors (you can customize, add, and subtract the extras) of icy delight, all of which focus on achieving one of seven nutritional goals. Try an antioxidant-rich Pomegranate Punch with pomegranate, bananas, blueberries, apple juice, soy protein, and Turbinado sweetener to stay healthy. Weight-conscious en-smuthiasts can trim down and float away with the Celestial Cherry High, packed with bananas, black cherry, papaya, Turbinado, and honey, and unpacked with fat. You can also customize any smoothie by adding enhancers or “make it skinny” by cutting out the honey and Turbinado.
Just like Mom used to say: "If it looks good enough to eat, I bet it's from that delicious sweet store next to the old gin mill. You know the one I'm talking about, right? No, not that one. I'm talking about Edibles Incredible Desserts, where I buy all my artful, tantalizing desserts and store them in my chest freezer next to my year supply of spinach quiches." And Mom was always right. Today's Groupon gets you $25 worth of melt-in-your-mouth, delectable creations for only $10 at Edibles Incredible Desserts.
Marble Slab Creamery's sensory experience begins by walking past the storefront, where the buttery scent of fresh-baked waffle cones drifts out into the air. Gourmet ice creams are freshly crafted onsite from Marble Slab’s original recipe, which entices customer's eyes with a rainbow of colors. Once clients have made a flavor selection, they choose from a smorgasbord of mix-ins, from fresh fruit to nuts to candy and crumbled cookies, which an ice-cream chef then hand folds in atop a frosty marble slab before packing the finished custom-designed flavor masterpiece into a homemade waffle cone.
In addition to procuring handheld treats, Marble Slab Creamery can send creations home in a variety of other formats, such as ice-cream cakes, cupcakes, and hand-packed quarts, or in the capable hands of a catering team for sprucing up special events such a corporate get-togethers or school functions with portable marble slabs or sundae bars in tow.
