Caffe Gelato sates appetites with Northern Italian and French- and Mediterranean-inspired fare, house-made gelato, and vino from a 1,500-bottle cellar, all of which has amassed the restaurant an impressive collection of praise and awards from the likes of Delaware Today and Wine Spectator. Meats such as filet mignon and prosciutto-wrapped veal appear alongside a rotating collection of seafood entrees, such as pan-seared scallops, truffle maple-roasted salmon, and local line-caught rockfish. House-made pappardelle and linguine pastas entangle ingredients ranging from littleneck clams to lump crab to chiffonade-cut basil. Twenty-four rotating flavors of gelato are crafted on the restaurant’s premises, delighting tongues with a chocolate-hazelnut blend or scoops of raspberry. Sommeliers strap on their headlamps and crampons to belay into the caverns of the restaurant’s opulent wine cellar, where more than 100 varietals nestle in bottles.
Half-moon booths welcome companionable groups among sunny yellow-and-red-orange walls in the dining room, and the gleam of a granite bar inspires tipplers to toast the memory of loyal pet rocks.

Huntington Learning Center employs a battalion of highly trained tutors who help students succeed both at school and in standardized testing.

Located right near the Pennsylvania-Delaware border, Devon Esthetique's skincare services are so customized they're not even listed on the website. That's because owner Devon Tucker-Kirk, whose own complexion has thrown her a few curveballs, knows firsthand how different everyone's skin is. Aestheticians analyze and diagnose skin types before consulting with clients to create a custom facial with medical- and pharmaceutical-grade products instead of leftover soy-sauce packets. Their aim differs slightly from the typical wellness center: aestheticians seek to provide results first and relaxation second, helping to send a clear message to acne and eczema. The earth-toned wellness studio also pops with colorful floral pillows, which cushion stainless steel, airless jet pedicure chairs as visitors have nails buffed and polished to a perfect sheen before accessing the complimentary healthy snack bar.
Neither Henry nor Carol Huffman, the founders of Cheese Chalet, had any idea that their future careers would be in gourmet dairy products when they first married. Henry was teaching Spanish at the University of Delaware when their local cheese shop closed down in 1976. Though the two began joking about opening their own shop, jokes soon turned to discussion, discussion turned to planning, planning turned to knock-knock jokes, and within a few months, the pair officially opened their first shop. Today, with Henry and Carol still at the helm, their staff of seven seasoned employees prepares fresh deli-style takeout meals and catering trays as they maintain the store’s stock of bulk and prepackaged cheeses from around the world.

Shrill giggles and the pitter-patter of tiny, sock-swathed feet echo off the walls of Pump It Up, where lilliputian guests pinball through a metropolis of inflatable slides and bouncy enclosures. During glow pop-in play, tykes frolic in the radiance of special lights, and in pirate-themed sessions, youngsters don costumes or just feel less self-conscious about the parrot permanently affixed to their shoulder. Small groups of ankle-biters tear through the facility during private parties, plummeting down slides, scaling plush ladders, and bounding off of springy floors.
The highly educated clinicians at The Peacemaker Center use their faith as true north when guiding clients to happier lives. Their counseling services cater to a wide array of issues, from those affecting the individual to ones eating away at families. And some zero in on more specific problems, such as eating disorders or drug and alcohol addictions.
Just walking distance from the University of Delaware’s campus, The Zen Den offers non-competitive yoga and massage services in a calm and welcoming studio focused on helping people find their best self and flourish in their community. The schedule features Pilates and a variety of yoga classes offered seven days a week.

Additionally, The Zen Den’s pair of licensed massage-therapists— also the co-owners—soothe bodies and minds with a slate of massages such as deep tissue, Swedish, fertility, and sports.
