What's sweet: Solita in the Westfield Valencia Town Center Shops on the Patios
Why it's sa-weeet: Kids eat free every Monday at Solita and their lunch specials are all under $10. Solita is the "little Mexican place" we've always wanted to have in our neighborhood, with fab food and drinks, a casual vibe and price points that make it affordable to visit on a whim. We're loving the authentic recipes sourced from their chef's south-of-the-border travels that are cooked from scratch every day and kissed by the oak smoke from their wood grill. Pair your top choice with a margarita crafted from the best 100-percent blue agave highland tequilas, fresh-squeezed juices and real fruit. 291-1399

What's sweet: cookies and cakepops from CAKEgoodness
What you'll want to order: CAKEgoodness is known for their to-die-for cakes, cupcakes and cakepops (That must be why they put the "CAKE" part of the name in caps! Really - check out these gorgeous floral pops and you'll see why people drive from all over to CAKEgoodness in Newhall!) but here's the downlow: Their cookies are crazy-good, too. When you stop into the Newhall location you'll find cookies that are mere minutes old, since they sell out so fast the supply is consistently baked fresh throughout the day. These babies are big, baked to perfection and will have you addicted after your first bite. Start with the Chocolate Chip or the Sugar Cookie to discover what you're missing. 799-7510
