Pronounced "chew factory," this cream puff purveyor's name may present a challenge to the uninitiated, but enjoying its light-as-a-feather Japanese pastries is as easy as…well, pie. If the sugar rush doesn't keep you awake, the Kona coffees will. It also carries muffins and H&H bagels for those who prefer their breakfast carbs without a sweet, creamy filling. And as an added treat, Choux Factory offers free wireless Internet, so guests can stay connected while caffeinating.
