When Gonuts with Donuts started off they were all the craze. Now many years down the line, the hype has died down, their prices have gone up, but they're still pretty decent.
Their special is the CBP and it's really pretty special. A rich but not heavy mousse, an intense and lasting chocolate hit, a fair lug of alcohol and biscuit perfection- not too mushy not too crunchy.

After an initial hiccup, Arabian Knights has bounced back well. The food is nearly back to their former glory, and coupled with the new venue, things are looking up again.

Harpo's is known for their premium pizzas. The delivery though was an arduous process and took way longer than we expected.
