Sebastian Joe’s (1007 West Franklin Avenue) - Open early and late. “Homemade ice cream in unique, rotating flavors draws crowds to this family-run parlor.” We are partial to the raspberry chocolate chip ice cream, which is one of their signature flavors. Also a nice spot for a quiet morning coffee with a communal copy of the New York Times.

Isles Bun and Coffee (1903 West 28th Street) -“Specializing in cinnamon rolls, this tiny bakery also offers other baked goods & coffee drinks.” Just a few blocks from Lake of the Isles makes this an ideal spot to pick up a treat before or after a walk around the lake.. We especially recommend the puppy dog tails – a mini version of their gigantic cinnamon rolls that are just the right size for one person.
