Near the tracks of Auburn's train terminal, The Station Bistro feeds the soul and appetite with hearty, homey meals that capture the brawny spirit of bygone conductors and brakemen. Four-egg omelets, piled-high burgers, lemon-kissed Alaskan cod, and juicy steaks alongside scoops of garlic mashed potatoes stand ready to sate hunger no matter the time of day. Leafy palms and potted trees shade diners at red-clad tables, and a mural depicting an 18th-century locomotive harks back to a time when engineers kept trains humming by feeding engines shovelfuls of Reubens.

Athens Pizza & Pasta is still going strong after 34 years. In 2013, its pizza was voted Best Pizza by readers of the Auburn Reporter. And although the praise for the eatery's pies are warranted?whether it's the Athens Special with three types of meat or the Spartan Special with feta cheese and black olives?the kitchen staff doesn't only toss together pizzas. They also make foot-long grinders, baked pastas, and hearty salads. In fact, the menu also includes barbecue chicken, spareribs, and other BBQ offerings.

Pasta pomodoro, mushroom and swiss burgers, chicken tikka masala—the menu at Islander's Restaurant & Bar plays tribute to cuisines across the globe. At two locations, diners can enjoy island-inspired creations, such as hawaiian grinders layered with canadian bacon and pineapple, alongside Italian feasts of more than a dozen kinds of pastas and create-your-own pizzas. Chefs at the Auburn location master the cuisine of South Asia, infusing aromatic Indian spices into biryani, chicken curry, and vegetarian saag paneer. Weekend mornings bring breakfast to both locations—chefs drown biscuits and chicken-fried steak in country-sausage gravy and stack buttermilk pancakes into realistic depictions of the Roman Coliseum.

In 1988, Auntie Anne's founders Anne and Jonas Beiler purchased a Pennsylvania farmers'-market stand, where they experimented with dough until they created a pretzel that seemed to strike the perfect chord with their customers. Today, at their more than 1,150 locations worldwide, the pretzel makers still hand roll the original recipe but have added to the menu with inventive options, such as the pepperoni pretzel and eight signature dipping sauces. The team constantly explores new uses for the pretzel dough, such as wrapping it around hot dogs, slicing it into bite-size nuggets, or using it to build historically accurate Austrian villages. To transform the snack into a meal, they accompany it with specialty drinks, including frozen-lemonade desserts.

When not twisting dough, Auntie Anne's team partners with the national charitable organization Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which raises funds to fight childhood cancer. Auntie Anne's also reaches out to the community through fundraising opportunities.
