In the Mood Coffee & Ice Cream is a nostalgia-infused old-fashioned ice cream parlor that offers delicious homemade ice cream, sorbet, and other delicious snacks, all made fresh daily. Prices for icy treats range from $3.95 to $8.50, and come in more than 30 flavors. They range from classics done right, such as rocky road and coffee break, to wilder variants such as howling brownie, mountain lion crunch, and funky pretzel gold mine. Sorbet—ice cream’s fruity and lactose-intolerant cousin—features tastes of mango, orange, and strawberry, as well as sugar-free ice cream options. If cold sweets make you anxious for bready treats, nosh on a Monte Cristo panini ($5.49) made with ham, turkey, Swiss and cheddar cheeses, then bury the evidence under a banana-flavored smoothie ($5.70). In the Mood also carries delightful specialty coffees, so wake yourself up in the morning or avoid terrifying dreams of hearing friends endlessly recount their dreams with a large cappuccino ($2.59).
