The Fig Leaf Cleaning Company's licensed and bonded maids forgo synthesized chemicals in favor of natural oils and bio-enzymes during thorough housecleaning sessions. Tidy technicians can send vacuums roaring across floor surfaces and the bushy backs of sleeping uncles before dusting frills and furniture and collecting garbage. Sanitizer scours kitchen and bathroom counters and appliances, and spiders abscond from their abodes as cleaners shoo away cobwebs. Maids opt to use the vacuum, mop, broom, and toilet brush that belong to domiciles, as shared items often spread germs and trade secrets.
New York-style pizza and Italian-style Italian food fill the menu at Café Sicilia, a casual neighborhood joint with a welcoming feel. Served by the pie or slice, sizzling pizzas are topped with canadian bacon, mushrooms, capers, artichokes, and other standard or specialty toppings and give off the aromas of toasted crust and melty cheese. Deep dish, sicilian-style pies pack an extra hearty punch, while stromboli and calzones transform the slice into a more compact culinary vehicle.
Outside the pizza realm, Café Sicilia's chefs plate fettucini alfredo, baked ziti, tortellini, and lasagna. Kids can tuck into spaghetti and meatballs or chicken parmigiana, while parents feast on zuppa de pesce, an assortment of seafood layered in zesty marinara. Culinary expeditions conclude with tiramisu, cannoli, and plain or chocolate cheesecake.
A woven hanging light looms overhead, casting a buttery glow on wall alcoves festooned with orchid arrangements. Nearby, booths flaunt intricate geometric designs to match throw pillows on the adjacent sofa. The walls are comprised of texturally diverse materials such as stacked stone, exposed brick, and barbecue-flavored wallpaper, an eclectic assortment that mirrors Orchid City Café's mélange of Cajun, American, and Asian fusion fare.
Poboys and Thai-style rice dishes overflow with a choice of catfish, salmon, and chicken—all available fried, grilled, blackened, or interrogated. Chefs also mold half-pound Angus sirloin burgers to pair with fresh-cut french fries and specialty drinks such as smoothies or sweet boba tea.
Light streams in through the floor-to-ceiling windows at the front of Glazed Doughnuts & Cafe, glinting off cushy high-backed chairs and sleek wooden tables before mingling with the crystals in the ornate chandelier. Before taking a seat or levitating next to the bookshelf, customers can peruse the mouth-watering menu, selecting treats including tantalizingly fresh scratch-made doughnuts, croissants, and muffins, carefully stacked sandwiches, and draughts of energy-boosting coffee.
A fresh pot of coffee steams on each table at Le Peep, whose diner-style breakfasts and lunches have been hitting tables across the country since the first shop opened nearly 50 years ago. The kitchen staff dips slices of sourdough vienna bread in french custard batter for the signature french toast and transforms fresh eggs into omelets and casserole-style scrambled-egg dishes. Diners can also feast on plates of piping hot chocolate-chip griddlecakes or belgian waffles buried under a heap of dutch apples. Pitas, hoagies, and melts counterbalance breakfasts, as do burgers such as the bacon cheeseburger and the breakfast burger, a morning-style bacon cheeseburger topped with a fried egg and garnished with a picture of a sunrise.
A spacious and casual gathering spot, Big Shots Sports Café is where visitors can stretch out, watch the game, and have a burger and beer. The staff will also agree that it’s the kind of place supposed founder Millard P. Foonswaggle would have enjoyed, kicking back after wrestling pythons and generally living on the edge. Inside, patrons sidle up to the bar for a frozen margarita or relax in a booth with an appetizer platter piled with onion strings, buffalo wings, mozzarella sticks, pickle chips, fries, and fried jalapeños. Stop in on Wednesday, Saturday, or Sunday nights for games of Texas hold’em or Friday evenings for live music.
