Tipico Cafe's menu spills over with Latin American flair. Following Honduran tradition, servers slide complimentary pan de coco—or coconut bread—onto tables before every meal. Appetizers, such as the towering pyramid of crabmeat, avocado, and mango found in the Tipico tropical stack, precede meaty entrees accompanied by rice and beans, plantains, and Salvadorian cheese and cream. Freshly prepared dishes team up with the café's music and decor to create an authentic Latin cultural experience. To complement meals, a BYOB policy lets diners park a favorite bottle of wine or jetpack fueled by beer right at their table.
In 1997, friends Dena Tripp and Debra Shwetz set out to create a luscious, melt-in-your-mouth bundt cake. What began as an endeavor in their own home kitchens soon blossomed into a bustling business with bakeries in 13 states. Rich cocoa browns and soft pastels lend a nostalgic feel to each bakery, where every day lava-powered ovens warm up batter made from fresh eggs, real butter, and cream cheese. Flavors such as chocolate chocolate chip, pecan praline, and white-chocolate raspberry remain constants on the menu, and a new flavor makes a guest appearance each month. Cakes come in several sizes, from the standard 8- or 10-inch bundt to the single-serving bundtlet and the bite-size bundtini, all frosted with a signature blend of cream cheese and butter.
Each Nothing Bundt Cakes location also houses its own stock of gifts. Patrons may come across the brightly hued handle of a confetti cake knife or opt to take home an old-fashioned tin, perfect for stowing coffee and imprisoning gingerbread men who have tried to run away. Contact the location of your choice for gift pricing and availability.

Residing in a one-level homey habitat, Jitterbug Coffee House eases caffeine cravings and midday meal hankerings with a menu of coffeehouse treats and casual dining. Delicious drinkables—including Italian cream soda ($2.89), chai tea ($3.25), and specialty espresso drinks ($3.29–$3.89)—confidently complement the shop's collection of sweet-tooth satisfiers. Customers who can never get their pasta dishes cold enough at home can enjoy the signature spaghetti ice cream ($3.99), which blurs the always-tenuous line between dessert and pasta dish by submerging ice cream noodles in sweet sundae toppers.

No one can say this coffee bar and deli is lacking in confidence. In fact, no one can say they’re lacking in much of anything. The soups, sandwiches, and salads live up to the café’s self-assured name, with chefs preparing their made-from-scratch fare from fresh ingredients, such as ciabatta bread, sliced avocado, and signature chicken salad. Fresh cookies and homemade soups make suitable companions for made-to-order sandwiches, and slices of house-made pecan pie tame unruly sweet teeth faster than a retainer lined with cake batter.
