  • Rockhill Grille —  banana cream pie. Light vanilla cream and fresh bananas, then the tart is topped with whipped cream and toasted almonds.
  • The Rieger — The Shake & Frites. It comes with a side of Ça Va’s salted house-made French Fries for dipping.
  • Sasha’s Baking Company — pumpkin Danish.
  • Dolce Bakery — oatmeal cream pie.
