Good Tasting

What we’re eating this month


Apple Cream Pie Crêpe

Streetside Creperie, Conway

One bite of this ooey, gooey, local-apple-filled concoction—brightened up with cream cheese and cinnamon—was enough to send us into a let-me-tell-you-about-the-time-I … tailspin, regaling one another with souvenirs (that is, memories) of rainy-day tromps through the streets of Paris. Mais oui, Conway is a long way from the City of Lights—but this new crêperie-slash-coffee-shop will certainly do in a pinch. (1321 Oak St.;


“High Five” Toast

Arsaga’s Church & Center, Fayetteville

This ain’t your average avocado toast, friends: This is radish-chia-seed-sunflower-sprout-smoked-paprika-and-salmon avocado toast. And even if you’re of the mind that we’ve reached peak avocado toast, the new Arsaga’s location at Church & Center—which is just mind-bogglingly beautiful, BTW—offers seven other toast varieties, schmeared with everything from ginger-stewed strawberries to togarashi.

Four-layer “Naked” Cake

Sweet Lavender Bakeshop, Little Rock

Our infatuation with Sweet Lavender Bakeshop—a home-based bakery helmed by Hannah Lavender—started with a Thanksgiving pumpkin pie. It grew over red-velvet-and-cream-cheese whoopie pies, and darn near caught fire when we were gifted a dozen of Hannah’s fresh-strawberry cupcakes. Fall in love yourself when she brings the goods to this month’s Sweet Lavender pop-up at Electric Ghost Screen Printing on Oct. 16—like a bake sale, but sooo much better.                        (
