Was your V-Day a little less sweet than you had hoped for? Or maybe it’s just you and the cat, and we all know how self-centered cats can be! Whatever the reason your chocolate needs weren’t met, Olympus Northpoint has got you covered. Check out these four great sweet shops where you can gorge away the days between Valentine’s Day and swimsuit season.
I Scream Ice Cream
It’s not chocolates, but chocolate is an option – whether it’s the base, the topping, or both. Ice cream is great because it’s so easy to put away. You can drown any type of feeling in this stuff, replacing it with momentary bliss followed by all-night guilt. I Scream Ice Cream is currently open for takeout only. Which is perfect because the best place to eat ice cream is on your couch. Or in bed.
ABC Cake Shop & Bakery
Cakes, cupcakes, and cookies, oh my! (And pastries!) Whatever your sweet tooth is aching for, this place has just about got you covered. Cupcakes caught your eye? They have a minimum order size of two dozen. You can do this!
Cravin’ Cookies … and More!
You cravin’ cookies? This is definitely the place to get your fix. With everything from lemon macaroons to chocolate topped peanut butter to oatmeal no-bakes, oatmeals of all varieties, and several different shortbreads, Cravin’ Cookies … and More! will leave you craving nothing. Except maybe a glass of milk and a goodnight’s sleep.
Saratori’s Pastry Shop
This place is the real deal. They’ve got cookies, of course. But they also do homemade truffles, by the box-full. Individual Italian desserts in a little glass cup, like classic coppa mascarpone, creme brulee, and chocolate mousse. And even “luscious strawberries dipped in fine chocolate.” There are also a variety of pastries available that you can order a la carte. Grab a few of these and a dozen cupcakes or cookies, and call it a night!
