Mara’s Cafe & Bakery, Denville, Fanwood & Berkeley Heights
If you want delectable, bakery-fresh desserts with your coffee, Mara’s is the place. They carry 10 single-origin beans and offer 11 types of roasts, from light to double. Flavors range from traditional hazelnut to a tropical pina colada. The spiced iced chai latte is particularly smooth with just the right amount of sweetness, and the Colombian Supremo house blend is memorably smooth and dark. Morning and late-afternoon rush are best avoided, but the food and drinks are worth the wait.—KK (To read the full article, click here.)

Mara's opened in the spring of 2013 and features a variety of cupcakes, pies, cookies and other desserts, along with a brunch, lunch and dinner menu, declicious gelato and award-winning coffee.
