I was in L.A a few days ago for a soccer tournament and when we had arrived and settled in the hotel, we noticed that there was a mall next to us. Bored, and with nothing to do for the rest of the day, we stopped by to check it out and take a small walk. That was when we noticed a sign for a crepe place called Creme De La Crepe, and of course, we stopped. The general atmosphere of the inside of the store was a rustic french Paris afternoon. They have multiple locations throughout the L.A. area but the one we stopped at was in Culver City. Continue reading
There is nothing I crave more sometimes than a delicious bar of chocolate and bowl of strawberries to go with it. And what better than to have the strawberries dipped in delicious mouth watering chocolate from Godiva! Every time I’m walking down the walkways of Westfield Valleyfair across Santana Row, the aroma of the Godiva store always captures both my nose and heart!
I came across Recess Italian Ice because of my friends posting pictures of it on SnapChat! All I could think was “Damn I have to try this it looks delicious”. But pictures can hide 1000 flavors! The general aesthetic of the inside of the store was very pleasing and welcoming. The walls are white with black writing or covered with the Recess logo and the staff is friendly and welcoming!

I was in UC Davis this weekend for a friendly soccer tournament and had a few hours of break until the next game so I decided it was time for a donut (because when isn’t it?). If you don’t know the Davis area too well, it’s somewhat dead in comparison to Downtown San Jose and San Francisco. It’s more of a suburb if anything with a very small downtown. Coincidently, the only two donut shops in the area were both open, but, HAD RAN OUT OF DONUTS. So I had somewhat brushed off the idea of getting any donuts for the day and went on to get coffee from a place called Temple Coffee Roasters.
My all time favorite dessert and go to when I’m having a strong sweet tooth craving is always ice cream! And ice cream itself can come in different shapes and sizes which is the beauty of it. So when I heard about a place that everyone was raving about that makes ice cream into rolls, I knew I had to try it. So, I headed out to Icicles. Located in downtown Willow Glen, the store itself is difficult to find during daylight, but at night, the long line wrapping around the tiny door and shining lights will have you doing a double take!

Sno-Crave! Just as the name says, you will crave more once you have tried it. The first time I tried Sno-Crave was on a whim after I’d had dinner with my friends. One had said she knew this amazing dessert place that served all types of things and we had to try. So we set out to Sno-Crave! They have multiple locations throughout Milpitas, San Jose, and Fremont. Continue reading
On a hot Spring/Summer day, the one thing everyone is looking for is a nice popsicle or a bowl of ice cream to munch on! In San Jose there are two places that can deliver on the popsicle promise, not only can you pick different flavors of popsicle gelato sticks, but you can add delicious toppings on top to top it off! (pun intended) Milk & Wood and PopBar are up and coming hot locations for nearby college and high school students. Continue reading
