30. Freshly Baked Bread and Croissant Basket at Saquella Cafe 

There's potential for fisticuffs when it comes time to divvy up the baked goods in the brunch-ready bread basket at Saquella Cafe in Boca Raton's Royal Palm Place. There's typically plenty of whole wheat, fruit bread (usually cranberry), and cheese bread to go around evenly, assuming you order one basket for a twosome. It's that croissant that can cause things to turn ugly.

Judging from the melt-in-your-mouth texture and Paula Deen-approved flavor, it seems butter would be the primary ingredient in this classic French treat. Unfortunately, the basket comes with but one of these dreamy viennoiserie, so you'll have to share. Or fight.
