At the grills, the Liquid/Fresh Planet staff simmers up lean meats and veggies before assembling them into internationally inspired stuffed toasted pita and steaming rice bowls. Liquid/Fresh Planet strives to appeal to youngsters too, whipping up kid-friendly selections, such as cheese pizzas and PB&Js, and routinely checking beneath the stove for any potential boogeymen. Or follow the hum of whirring blenders through a forest of colorful red umbrellas to the Liquid/Fresh Planet front counter, where servers are busy folding fresh fruits and veggies into a variety of smoothies and wholesome eats. One packs a blender with organic oatmeal, fresh fruit, and whey protein, while another scoops up boosts from bottles of flaxseed, mixed vitamin, and ginseng.

Cravings Cafe percolates flavorful, full-bodied coffee with 100% Arabica beans secured from a local roaster to sip with gourmet sandwiches and fresh soups. Under the gaze of original artwork, baristas skillfully concoct foamy cappuccinos or decadent mexican hot chocolates and tastefully garnish each cup with a monster-truck Micro Machine ($2–$4). Small bowls of soup du jour ($2.99) tempt palates with bursts of earthy, jour flavor, and turkey sandwiches pop with basil- and parmesan-infused pesto ($5.99). On Thursday evenings, diners can munch falafel wraps ($5.99) as they scrutinize the prowess of amateur entertainers who rendezvous at the café's open-mic night, where host Ramon Rivas invites patrons to read poetry, sing songs, and lip-synch to a laugh track.

Espresso Pit Stop Girls' baristas brew a menu of hot and iced beverages using South American coffee beans and Italian espresso inside a colorful, 1950s-themed café and drive-thru. Caffeinate with 10 12-ounce or 16-ounce hot Checkered Flag coffees (up to an $18.50 value), iced javas (up to a $24 value), or, like blocks of ice wrapped in blankets, a combination of hot and cold. Infuse percolated sippables with a shot of vanilla or peppermint flavor ($0.50 extra) to make them match the vibrancy emanating from the store’s bright-pink walls, checkered tile floor, and shiny metallic counter. In addition to brewed thirst quenchers, Espresso Pit Stop Girls blends espresso-based drinks, such as lattes and mochas, and crafts fresh, homemade pastries and sandwiches.
