Phil and Sebastian Coffee Roasters just launched its list of summer drinks and we’re most intrigued by the Purple Rain (cue Prince lyrics). It’s made with purple dim anchan flowers, lavender, mint, coconut water and lemonade. The cafe’s other summer drinks include the Summer Fix, an Annex Root Beer Float and the Black & Tonic.

A Vietnamese sub and a beef dip had a baby. It’s called the Un-pho-gettable Prime Rib Beef Dip and you can get it at Pho Vietnamese Noodle Soup in Sunridge. Bone marrow butter, onions, sautéed mushrooms and horseradish complete this prime rib sandwich, which also features “pho jus” to dip it in. This sandwich is a perfect meal for those rainy (or snowy) spring days.

These delightful bombolini are a new item at the bakery inside Lina’s Italian Market. Imagine fried sweet dough topped with anything from blueberries to chocolate to hazelnuts. Then there’s the pastry cream filling, which makes for a delicious surprise when you bite into it. Are you drooling? We’re drooling.
