A Latte Fun Indoor Playground and Café brims with happy chatter, which drifts from regular classes, special events, and open playtime seven days a week.
Children frolic across multicolored carpeted floors in a 6,000-square-foot playroom, exploring climbing structures, foam pits, and a floor-level trampoline that is kept safe by rounded edges, extensive padding, and declawed teddy bears. The playground eschews video games, prize games, and violent toys, instead letting older children don animal costumes in the dress-up area, while toddlers younger than 2 romp in their own play pit and toy bins. Cool zephyrs of air conditioning sweep contented sighs away from zebra-print sofas or onyx-hued wooden tables, where adults peruse a gourmet café menu. A boutique toy store extends the center's positive attitude toward play into homes with a slew of unique gifts and rare and eclectic toys.
A private room reverberates with the youthful energy of A Latte Fun Indoor Playground and Café's classes, formal functions, and parties, which staff members provide with refreshments, cake, and decorations. At least two assistants remain on hand at kids’ events to provide full setup, cleanup, and supervision to ward off squabbles that arise when imaginary friends show up wearing the same outfits.
Taylor Made Café's health-conscious epicures assemble a menu of light café fare without the use of high-fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, fillers, or hormones. A choice of mixed greens or low-calorie wraps awaits lunchers, with concoctions such as The TMC Pick with turkey, veggies, and strawberries, or The Ten Goaler's mix of string beans, mandarin oranges, and crisp sesame-seed sticks. Bags of chips add enough crunch to finally win the attention of your crush, while a choice of a house-made protein bar provides tasty muscle-building bricks. Chewy cookies eliminate the oxymoronic element of a healthy dessert by using applesauce in place of butter.
At Jordan's Steak Bistro, you don't have to wait for the main course to get your beef fix. The first dish on the menu is an appetizer of beef carpaccio with thinly shaved tenderloin, which sets the tone for an elegant selection of dishes that includes hand-picked oysters and duck breast drizzled in orange teriyaki sauce. Of course, steaks are the highlight of the menu, ranging from a petite 6-ounce Jackman Ranch filet to an 18-ounce bone-in rib eye that some diners have reported is big enough for two people or one really hungry Santa. Though it is a steakhouse, Jordan's isn't looking to leave anyone out?the menu also includes meat-free dishes such as a chilled vegan terrine with tofu, olives, and spinach.
The owner of Stacie's Cakes, a mother of six, had little time for time-consuming baking projects while her children were young. Now that they've grown up, though, she can focus on expertly baked, meticulously decorated sweets. Among her specialties are multi-tiered cakes covered with sculpted fondant, sprinkle-dipped cake pops, and cakes that mimic the appearance of high heel shoes, animals, and other whimsical shapes.

As owner of Butterfields Southern Cafe, Mike Foley extends Southern hospitality to all his guests. He treats them to the kinds of foods anyone from the South might have found on the kitchen table growing up. For breakfast, Mike whips up eggs, pancakes, bacon, and grits, side-by-side in a dish called the Patchwork Quilt. At lunch, he serves barbecue beef sandwiches paired with mashed potatoes, while dinner features fried okra and skirt steak with blue cheese. Mike describes the menu as "All-American," despite including a few international options such as teriyaki chicken and fettuccine alfredo.
