10 Pickup & Delivery Spots to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with a little stress eating during these uncertain times, and for us, that means regularly satisfying our sweet cravings with delicious treats. Forget the “quarantine 15” for now (there’s plenty of time to work it off later) and find the joy and comfort of sinking your teeth into a fluffy piece of cake, a chocolatey-rich cookie or a velvety-smooth pint of ice cream. We’ve rounded up 10 local spots that are still open for takeout and delivery to satisfy all of your sugar needs.
Birthdays are still happening, and they all call for cake. Butter& has come to the rescue, spreading CDC-approved messaging around the city in the form of small quarantine cakes serving 1 or 2 people. Choose from flavors including pistachio and rose; chocolate and salted caramel; and matcha and strawberry. Then pick a cheeky message like “Wash Your Hands,” “Don’t Touch Your Face” and “Pretend You’re an Introvert” that Butter&’s master bakers will stencil on top.
