Buttercup Grill & Bar serves up an extensive and eclectic menu of hearty American fare for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and breakfast for lunch or dinner. Start a day of paragliding right with a hearty order of chicken fried steak and eggs ($8.99), or opt for a fresh-fruit-topped Belgian waffle ($6.99). The mid- and late-day menu offers any and everything to satisfy palates of all preferences, including starters such as a cup of soup ($2.99) or lunch-sized salad ($4.95+), or sandwiches like the slow-roasted prime-rib French dip ($7.99). Burgers ($7.59+), pastas ($8.99+), grilled favorites (such as chicken and shrimp jambalaya, $12.99), and other meaty treats ($9.99+) round out the tasty menu. The selection of beer, wine, and frozen non-alcoholic drinks make excellent candidates to chauffer the tasty bites down the body's food chute, and eventually into the gastronomic ball pit at the bottom.
Nestled within a historical two-story house built in 1855, Villa Romano's kitchens teem with a menu of delicate pastas, tender meats, and Old-World Italian specialties. Thin slices of raw filet mignon mingle with spinach, parmesan, and whole-grain mustard in the carpaccio appetizer ($8), and baked green-lip New Zealand mussels ($8.50) pout in a spicy lemon-butter sauce. Entrees such as grilled chicken breast and risotto with smoked mozzarella ($15.95) crown tables alongside four-cheese ravioli ($15.50) daubed with basil and marinara. Atop stately plates of misto fiore ($22), grilled scallops and prawns don thick togas of pancetta and philosophize the fleeting nature of polenta as diners lift their spoons and scoop away at the creamy cornmeal side.
At Java Jax, refreshing, roasted-on-site coffee beverages unite with fresh sandwiches and specialty hot dogs to populate a varied menu of afternoon fare. Temper tempests of tastelessness with a flavor-packed Chicago-style hot dog loaded to the hilt with relish, peppers, celery, tomatoes, onions, and dripping with mustard ($3), or let your mouth play host to a jalapeno & cheddar cheese dog ($3.50). Meanwhile, patrons of holed cuisine can delight in a tasty spread of hummus on a bagel ($3.50) or spoon out a see-hole through a turkey sandwich ($6.50). Feel free to rest atop the cushy diner-style stools and bathe in the store's natural sunlight as you absorb the fresh-brewed espresso potables, such as the café mocha ($3–$3.75), or sip a blend of earthbound sweets in the fruit smoothies ($3.50–$4).
The rich flavors of Arabica beans burst from Panama Red Coffee Co.'s menu of handpicked coffee, ground and steeped using a craftsman-style batch-roasting technique. Guzzle a steaming mug of Panama Red joe, spiked with a shot of espresso, to fuel all-night study sessions or marathon congressional hearings ($2.25–$2.65). A blizzard of coffee, milk, and chocolate sweeteners swirl in the frosty Mocha Breeze ($3.35–$4.45) and regular or sugar-free hints of vanilla, almond, Jamaican rum, and other aromatic accents permeate flavored lattes ($3.15–$4.15). Cono pouring is available at the coffee bar for tastings and regular cups of coffee.
The staff of My HomeStyle Cafe aims to nourish guests with hearty soul food and classic American eats, from burgers and all-beef hot dogs to the Wednesday soul-food special—meatloaf, collard greens, mac ’n’ cheese, and cornbread. It’s a smaller spot, with room for 25 diners, and the friendly staff makes sure everyone feels welcome as they chow down in the homey atmosphere. They want their diners to leave feeling fed in body and soul—so the staff has incorporated Bible verses and pictures of inspirational leaders in their decor, and they dish up a Thursday Obama Burger special that encourages tongues to run for class president.
