Dulce Tapioca is a tremendous little spot near First Colony Mall if you're looking for a refreshing pick-me-up or a between-meal snack. Stop in before your shopping spree and get your nutritious and delicious energy in a cup. Their various tapioca and milk tea drinks are common breakfasts or desserts in Southeast Asia, and are quickly becoming a hit in the US. Try the milk tea with tapioca pearls if you're new to the little colorful balls in your drink concept. It's wonderfully fresh and chewy at this place, as it should be. Otherwise, their regular old iced coffee is marvelous. -Adam Rosen
Tea Cake Factory is a lovely place to stop for a snack or drink, or simply kill some time. Drop by on the way to First Colony Mall for a little bite. They have plenty of fresh gourmet baked items, but the title character is simply delectable. A tea cake is a brilliant cross between bread and cake, often with dried fruit. Reminiscent of a sort of smooth scone, the sweet yeasty cake is perfect with tea or coffee at any time of day. Grab an assortment for the office (a nice change from fatty fried doughnuts everyday). You can get anything from blueberry or lemon to coconut cream and Snicker Doodles. Their Cupcakes are also divine.

Azuma on the Lake serves great Japanese food. The sushi here is excellent, with some really innovative rolls. But the food is not the only reason why you should be dining here.
