  • Fran-Ceil Custard
    Occupying the same spot on a blacktop parking lot since the 1950s, the walk-up windows at Fran-Ceil Custard jog nostalgic memories of generations past. Although the sweetery has been under its current ownership for the past 30 years, the legacy of the shop's namesake Frances and Celia—wives to founders Tony and Michael—lives on not only in name, but also through the same French-style custard that has filled cups for more than half a century. A rotating menu of weekly flavors, such as pistachio, tangerine, or black raspberry, spirals into cones alongside the original chocolate and vanilla custards, and 13 varieties of hard-scoop ice cream form a decadent base for banana splits, fudge brownie sundaes, and poorly constructed suspension bridges. Over the years, homemade sherbets have been added into the mix, making rotating batches of lime, raspberry, and orange scoops.

  • The Cupcake Orchard
    Gen Perryman, owner of The Cupcake Orchard, has always loved to bake desserts but admits that she was inspired to open her bakery by the influx of cupcake shops across the country. She says on her website, “As I saw these cupcakeries popping up around the country, I thought, 'why not package what I love doing into a sweet cupcake?'” Every morning, Gen and her staff freshly prepare each batch using eggs and butter from local farms, seasonal fruits, and Belgian chocolate. The shop carries eight to 10 rotating daily flavors, including chocolate salted caramel, very vanilla, and chocolate chip cookie dough.

  • Butterwood Dessert
    Looks matter in the world of pastry, so it's no surprise that Butterwood Sweet & Savory—a spinoff of beloved bakery Butterwood Desserts—would be a beauty. Tucked inside the Hotel Lafayette, the room could be a grand Continental dining room of 100 years ago: carved wooden columns, white tablecloths, panes of leaded glass. It's elegant without being fussy, which goes for the food as well. The menu changes with the seasons, but you might find the restaurant's namesake flavor pairings in dishes such as sticky orange-ginger chicken wings, lamb with butternut-squash risotto, or a pulled-pork sandwich slathered in chipotle-peach barbecue sauce.
