If You're Craving: Ice Cream

aLatte Cafe

aLatte Cafe is more than just a coffee shop: they also have scoop & serve ice cream cones or bowls. If you're craving ice cream and want a bit of a jolt to keep you awake, opt for the affogato, a scoop of ice cream topped with a shot of hot espresso. 

 

If You're Craving: Ice Cream with a Twist

Urban Ice

Flavor is rolled into every bite at Urban Ice, where liquid ice cream is rolled flat on a frozen surface before toppings are added and mixed before the mixture freezes. Once frozen, the ice cream is scraped and rolled into long curls and served in a beautiful ice cream bouquet.

Jackie and Yvan Devulder create the authentic pastries that are hard to find outside their home of France and serve them right in the heart of the NEON District. Prepare to go absolutely ga-ga over their assortment of pastries and tarts, the perfect sweet craving solution.

 

If You're Craving: A Little Sweet AND A Little Savory

Lamia's Crepes

If you can't decide between sweet and savory, why not have both? Lamia's Crepes has sweet and savory varieties of crepes available. Whether a satisfyingly decadent crepe filled with goat cheese fits the bill or a classic strawberries and nutella sounds like music to your ears, you can satisfy two cravings at one spot here.

 

If You're Craving: Not Quite Pie, Not Quite Cake

The Rustic Tart

Please allow us to introduce you to the Piecasso: cake on the bottom, pie on the top, and all baked into The Rustic Tart's signature pie crust. It's amazing. The type of piecasso may change with the season, so stop on in and see what they're whipping up!
