One variety of the luxury chocolates at Coco Rouge
WHERE TO INDULGECoco Rouge, an upscale chocolate shop with inventive flavors, opened about a year ago. Co-owner and pastry chef Erika Panther says one of the most popular treats is the “Carnassier,” a bar of bacon-flavored chocolate. Caffé Gelato makes its own old-school Italian gelato for $3.50 a scoop. Eat a cookie or pick up a loaf of bread at Alliance Bakery, which has been around since 1920. For those who want to unwind, Nature Yoga offers classes in a range of styles including hatha, vinyasa, and ashtanga; five sessions go for $65 or you can pay $15 per class. Down the street, Ruby Room houses a retail boutique, salon, apothecary, yoga studio, and yoga boutique. The spot—small storefront, huge inside space—offers everything from massages, facials, and haircuts to the latest Sue Devitt makeup and yoga mats.
