When we think of the perfect dessert place to take family and friends that visit us from up north, Sloan’s at City Place (or their other locations throughout the area) always comes to mind. Their whimsical decor, ice cream flavors (get the kitchen sink if your group is big enough), candy and gifts selection always seem to appeal to someone in the group. Plus, take a trip to the back of the store and you’ll be treated to one of most famous rooms in the entire country; their bathroom that goes from transparent to opaque with the flick of a switch.
If you can wait until April, 2015, then you’ll be swimming in baked goods if you frequent the Royal Palm Beach area. Jupiter Donut Factory, the wildly successful (and yummy) donut shop that is now located only in Jupiter is hoping to throw open their new doors in just a few months’ time to expand their brand southward.
Sometimes you need to just get away and refuel; whether it’s for one night or for a full week, we think that we stumbled on the perfect spot. Looking to get away and with the grandparents watching the kids for a night, we took advantage of Casa Grandview‘s Procrastinator promotion, which allowed us to save 20% on our room by booking the same day of travel.
Here’s a unique location in the Lake Park area, just south of North Palm Beach. The Brewhouse Gallery is a space combining an art gallery, coffeehouse and craft brew bar all in one. There seems to be something at this location for everyone; high art, great brew and endless events.
A new healthy option is coming to Boca Raton in
late August September. To be located in Palms Plaza, at the southwest corner of Powerline Road and Palmetto Park Road, Apura Juicery & Coffeehouse will be serving cold-pressed juices, cold-brewed coffee, handmade nut “mylks” and more.
Among all of the new openings recently in South Florida, one that really whets our appetites is Rhino Doughnuts & Coffee in Lauderdale By The Sea. Located on Commercial Boulevard, this trendy and modern donut shop is like nothing in the area. While most donut shops look as though they haven’t changed for the past 30 years, the decor and vibe at Rhino is showing that they know how to keep up with the times. Having amazing donuts doesn’t hurt, either.
Fork & Balls, the newest restaurant located on E. Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale is set to open up shop, officially, on Friday, June 20th. A sleek italian restaurant (with an edgy name) that specializes in meatballs, the early reviews from their soft-opening are very positive and the local area is excited for this new arrival.
