Yum! That’s what customers say when they eat one of Collin Street Bakery's tasty fruit or cheese cakes, all baked fresh daily in one of three Texas locations – one in Waco and two in Corsicana. Try the World Famous DeLuxe Fruitcake, the Texas Blonde Pecan Cake, Grandma Shaw’s Pecan Pie and an assortment of cookies and nut cakes – all Texas originals that are delivered throughout the United States to the address of your choice.

If you're looking for a healthier spin, stop in at the Epicurean. Owned and operated by executive chef Han Ashley, the Epicurean specializes in providing healthy meals that meet delicious standards. Ashley learned how to cook without using oil, butter, sugar, salt, and animal products, and uses that knowledge to prepare the offerings at the Epicurean. The menu features both a “classic cuisine” section, with items such as lemony chicken salad and coq au vin, as well as a “healthy living cuisine” section, with inventive dishes like veggie meatloaf and quinoa tabouleh salad.

For something a little heartier, try Portofino's. The little Italian restaurant greets customers with its cozy atmosphere and offers them the best of Italian cuisine. The menu features a pizza list as well as Italian classics like chicken marsala, baked ziti and spaghetti carbonara.
