Fresh Start Diner has hallmarks of an American diner such as all-day breakfast starting as early as 7 a.m. Within these traditional parameters, however, the culinary team puts its own spin on the classic diner menu. Into a 14-inch pancake, they stuff vanilla ice cream and fruit or chocolate filling. Ham, crab cakes, corned-beef hash, or portobello mushrooms crown plates of eggs benedict. At 10:30 a.m. the diner introduces its lunch menu, which includes caesar salads with special house dressing and turkey melts. Fresh Start serves pancakes, omelets, salads, and sandwich entrees and bread including gluten-free products from Mrs. P?s Gluten Free Bakery.

Domino’s has been decorating dough canvases with flavorful sauces, an assortment of cheeses, and high-quality toppings that range from classic to unconventional since 1960. Domino’s dough is tossed daily and stretched by human hands, not by clumsy catapults and model airplanes flying in opposite directions. Treat friends to a tasteful feast by checking the online menu and crafting a custom masterpizza with Domino's wide range of ingredients. Famished diners too starved to choose their own toppings can select from Domino’s American Legends, featuring signature flavors from throughout the land. Pizzas such as the Pacific Veggie, Honolulu Hawaiian, or Wisconsin 6 Cheese impart all the delicious diversity of a road trip without the hassle of decoding an atlas. Nonpizza fare includes pastas, sandwiches, and breadsticks.

The environmentally conscious chefs at Tree Hugger's Cafe unite locally sourced organic ingredients into healthy, flavorful fare that respects Mother Nature. Every dish on the eco-friendly menu comes free of hormones, pesticides, and plastic fruit, and many are also vegetarian, vegan, raw, or gluten-free. Paninis cram fillings such as grilled eggplant and homemade pesto between slices of fresh artisan bread, and burgers mash up such ingredients as organic chicken and feta or sweet potato and quinoa. Breakfast dishes include house-made granola, muffins, and mixed-berry couscous. Tree Hugger's Cafe tries to reduce its carbon footprint by using compostable containers, blowing kisses to clouds, and outfitting the café's interior in recycled decor.

Q&A with the Owner

What is one of your most popular offerings? How is it prepared?

Our Margherita Pie is one of our most popular specialty pizzas. We start with fresh dough and drizzle extra-virgin olive oil over the crust, then we cover it with tomato slices and fresh basil leaves, top it with our freshly grated provolone cheese, and bake it. It's very light, but hearty. The flavors meld together to give you an authentic pizza with our twist?provolone cheese.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We're very passionate about what we do. We have exclusive specialty pizzas and one-of-a-kind subs. When the weather is good, we have al fresco dining.

In your own words, how would you describe your menu?

Our menu is focused around pizza. We have traditional Italian food items as well as other complementary offerings that round out our menu and provide a good selection. Our roots are in pizza, but we love everything "food," so we try to give customers our best version of what we like to eat.
