The Brown Barn Café is homey inside and out, from its wooden walls and house-life façade to its open kitchen filled with family recipes. Owners Bryant Belknap and John Costello, friends for more than 35 years, make foods they know and love, including Jack's lemonade—a recipe John Costello's son Jack devised when he was 10 years old. The internationally influenced menu also includes samosa pies and Vietnamese-style coffee, as well as café favorites such as tuna salad and quiche. And for dessert, the café sources fresh-made treats from Ah! Some Chocolates, which tack a sweet ending onto meals.
Adjacent to Bell Tower Salon & Spa, Bell Tower Café transports the casual café vibe and cuisine to an even more laid-back atmosphere. The team prepares breakfast food such as a Cali breakfast sandwich, stacked with cream cheese, cucumber, tomato, and greens, as well as lunch items such as daily soup and caprese sandwiches.
Every day since 2000, the tantalizing aromas of roasting coffee have flooded St. Thomas Roasters as staffers create a variety of bean blends using an onsite Diedrich roaster. Their creations include fair-trade organic coffee from Honduras, a special Linglestown blend, and flavored roasts including dark-chocolate dust and cinnamon sticky bun. Meanwhile, on the first floor of their shop, they transform the freshly roasted beans into piping-hot cups of coffee and espresso drinks, complementing sweet and savory food options such as apple croissants, breakfast pastries, and paninis.
The shop itself, housed in a residential building with a stone façade, offers the comforts of home as patrons cozy up inside or head to the porch to watch live music from a rotating lineup of artists. They can also bring home bags of beans to grind at home or use as props for a coffeehouse-themed sitcom.

At the Cinnamon Kiss Cafe, breakfast is an art form. Signature recipes get a dash of homegrown appeal thanks to fresh ingredients picked from the local market. These elements culminate in pancakes, french toast, egg dishes, and a breakfast special that combines all of the above. To complement these selections, the cafe offers up mimosas and the Cinnamon Kiss Tea, a house-special sweet tea with added flavors.
True Blue Mediterranean Café brings fresh Mediterranean food to a pair of Lehigh Valley locations—one in Bethlehem set amongst historic buildings, and another in Emmaus with a seasonal outdoor patio. At both, diners can fuel up with protein-packed bites of lamb kabob, or a steak gyro loaded with marinated hunks of steak and Mediterranean pickles. They can also crunch into meat-free dishes, such as the vegetarian sampler, which features hummus, babaganoush, and grape leaves served alongside warm pita bread.
