Prang loves Na Ya Dessert House because it’s a real Asian sweet treat (they serve Japanese, Taiwanese, and of course Thai dessert which is hard to find in the US), it’s affordable just 10 dollars for two desserts and a drink, plus it has a pleasant environment with nice decorations and good service.

Cinnaholic is a delicious dessert/snack restaurant for vegans and non-vegans.  They have basic cinnamon rolls as well as specialty cinnamon rolls in which you can choose from a number of frosting flavors and toppings.  Kate-Marie loves that she can get a hot cinnamon roll that she created and not even feel too guilty after eating it!
