    Milkshakes at Sugar Factory

    Sugar Factory American Brasserie doesn’t even seem like a restaurant. Instead, it is like you walked into Willy Wonka’s imagination, and are sitting down to eat his dreams and eccentric ideas. Everything is themed around candy, sweetness, or creativity. The mac and cheese burger is excellent. The cocktails range from colossal to epic, like swirling shark filled goblets, to smoking dry ice chalices filled with sweet watermelon candy. And the martinis are exotic and overflowing with chocolate. Read more…
