Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth Locally

As the city anxiously awaits the full reopening of all of our favorite businesses, there’s one sweet way to deal with all that stress! Takeout and delivery have become staples of all of our diets, but restaurants aren’t only serving apps and entrees—don’t forget about dessert! And right near your 1500 Locust apartment, there are many shops that specialize in sweet treats. Since June is the host of a number of special “holidays” celebrating all things sugar—with specific days for donuts, chocolate ice cream, smoothies and chocolate pudding all this month—what better reason to indulge, all while supporting local businesses?

One great spot to do just that is as at Carlo’s Bakery. While the location six blocks from your 1500 Locust apartment has been closed because of the current crisis, you can still order through the shop’s website for delivery. If you’re not familiar with Carlo’s, the shop is a family-owned bakery that rose to fame after being featured on TLC’s Cake Boss. The more than 100-year-old company has now expanded nationwide, and its menu has grown right along with it.

No matter what your sweet tooth is craving, Carlo’s can deliver. The staple chocolate chip cookies are sure to satisfy, or if you’re looking for something more adventurous, opt for the cookies and cream cannoli chips and dip. Cannoli cakes, mouse cakes and rainbow cakes are the perfect way to help your stress melt away and round out any meal. Best yet, many of the menu options come with free delivery—so you can enjoy all your favorites from the local shop right in the comfort of your home and all at the same price.

We’ll all be back into the swing of things soon, but until then, take a little time to treat yourself!
