Decadence is a brand new hangout that I just love. This is where you go to get a hot cup of deliciousness, a icy cold blended frappe, or a gourmet ice cream cone. Yes, they have salads and sandwiches too (pretty tasty...), also, gourmet cupcakes, breads and more. But here is what I really like:

The frappe's -- best personified by Rachel Rays signature "Yummo"! Blended drink has Crio (see below), yummy flavors, and a creamy base blended with a pebble ice to a smooth but slightly crunchy ice consistancy. Cookies and cream mint chip or caramel, coconut... all delish.

Crio can be served hot, cold, espresso style, latte, iced, etc. Its a unique specialty of theirs called Crio Bru -- a roasted cacao product that has a chocolate aroma, brewed like coffee. The great thing about Crio is that its not just "not bad for you", but its actually good for you. Although Decadence does not tout their main beverage as a health drink, imagine a brew that gives you the bliss of coffee without caffeine, and has 50% more antioxidants than pomegranate juice.

So, be warned, Crio is not naturally sweet -- its more like coffee. Dress it up or drink it plain, but you will get the roasted taste. If you like a strong coffee, it may seem a little less strong/bitter than you are used to -- ask if they can.

As for the ice cream -- super high quality - gourmet flavors -- chocolate coconut macadamia, maple bacon, ginger... and of course the traditional flavors also.

Sit back on the "cow-ch" and visit just like "Friends" do in their favorite coffee shop, or go through drive through on your way to work. Nice stopping spot after a date, or take the kids out for "real" ice cream.

Prices are good. Not stunningly high nor low. Just about right for the quality and type of food you are looking for. They researched well.
