    Sweet tooth getting to you? Don't fight it! Try a slice of Midnight cake here. The silky white chocolate mousse sandwiched between three layers of moist chocolate cake keeps things light and yummy. Read more

    Come early to grab the freshly baked bread; usually always out in the afternoon hours. Local cheeses and other picnic style eats are perfect for gatherings!

    You can't go wrong here. Yummy lemon macarons! Try sitting outside on the patio for a delish Sunday brunch or weekdays lunch. I love that Alon's is a health-conscious place like Whole Foods.
