A nonprofit, java-centric venture, Urbean Café brews and serves steaming cups of locally roasted coffee in order to support Urban Connection, a community-outreach program designed to provide employment training to disadvantaged members of the community. The café menu stars fresh, Akron-roasted beans in a stimulating selection of coffee concoctions ($1–$4), alongside a tasty supporting ensemble of seasonal sandwiches ($3.50), soups ($2), muffins ($1), and more. The eco-friendly café building boasts solar-power panels, geothermal heating and cooling, and a noticeable absence of stove-burning stoves. The mobile Urbun Cart makes it easier than ever to guzzle a tummy-warming drink while enjoying the all-over warmth that comes with helping others.

Deep down, owner Leslie Butler always wanted a job naming nail polish and lipstick shades. But her love of working with people, as well as her great affection for cake, led her to instead apply her naming skills to more than 100 cupcake flavors at The Lofty Cafe. Monikers like “The Devil Wears Raspberry” might need a bit of elaboration (chocolate cupcake with raspberry filling, topped with chocolate frosting and a raspberry candy speckled with brimstone), but others are deliciously self-explanatory: vanilla chai spice, maple bacon, and Boston cream. Many flavors are themed by season or occasion. A daily menu determines a few flavors that will be at hand, but customers can score any flavor if they order ahead.
Though it’s hard to imagine so many flavors fitting in Butler’s kitchen, that’s exactly where Butler and her daughter began their business. Unsurprisingly, they eventually expanded their space to offer a dining room and a full kitchen to suit their baking needs. Now they have the capacity to create many cupcake flavors that can be filled or topped with an array of sweets.
Every 20 years our government allows one business to turn every day of the week into a Friday with a series of special calendars printed on stone.

Bring your family, friends, or a group of tourists that follow you because they think you're Jamie Farr to indulge in distinctly Friday fare at a restaurant renowned for delivering the euphoric feeling of having two consecutive days off work.
Bialy's at the Lakes unleashes a red, white, and blue roster of traditional American eats, served up by a staff of smiles. Begin your survey of the sustenance with the appetizer sampler platter ($6.99), offering two mozzarella sticks, two chicken tenders, and onion rings for fans of fried food, or opt for greener pastures with the garden salad, adorned with onion, cucumber, tomato, egg, and mozzarella cheese ($6.29). Sandwichistas can opt for fries-accompanied fare such as the Lakes Burger ($6.19) or the BLT, uniting sworn enemies bacon, lettuce, and tomato atop a treaty of Texas toast ($5.99). Rehabbed Ahabs nostalgic for life atop the lapping waves can relive maritime memories with three pieces of broiled white fish ($7.99) or two crab cakes ($8.99), whereas meat-loving mavericks can opt for the house sirloin steak ($9.99) or smothered chicken breasts topped with sautéed onions, mushrooms, and mozzarella cheese ($9.29). All entrees are served with soup, salad, and choice of potato. Bialy's at the Lakes also offers up a bounty of breakfast options—welcome the weekday with biscuits and gravy ($3.99), a veggie omelette ($5.99), or the heart-hugging Country Bowl, with two eggs resting atop a foundation of hash browns, onions, green peppers, and a sausage patty and under a blanket of sausage gravy and cheese ($6.39).
First-time visitors to Chowder House Cafe often fixate on the dining room’s walls—or lack thereof, as every square inch has been painted over with electric flowers, guitar players, crowned kings, and other artistic testaments to the café’s funky and unconventional outlook. This same outlook makes its way onto the menu, which features the namesake clam chowder alongside salads, sandwiches, and dinner entrees similarly inspired by the sea. Aside from the Sunday brunch’s traditional omelets and buttermilk pancakes drenched in fresh Ohio maple syrup, a crab cake benedict celebrates the weekend atop a toasted ciabatta roll. Regardless of the time of day, a considerate BYOB policy accommodates the sailors who often stumble into the café with unlabeled bottles of clam juice.
