For more than 20 years, Giuseppi's Pizza and Pasta has been answering the calls of pizza-craving innards with a menu chalk full of Italian eats. With homemade sauce concocted of tomatoes from California, and dough made in-house daily, the eatery creates meals as fresh as Will Smith in the '90s. Start the fresh feast with the tomato cheese garlic bread, heartily sprinkled with fresh roma tomatoes, provolone, mozzarella, and parmesan ($5.50), or corndog bites served with a side of honey mustard ($5.95). The feta, kalamata olives, artichokes, and tomatoes give the Jimmy the Greek pizza a Mediterranean twist, and the fresh mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and black olives lay tucked under hand-tossed dough in the Macaboli calzone like a sleeping child under their covers or a bald head under a toupee ($7.50). For a more portable plate, on-the-go munchers can clasp hold of the Weggiedilla, a sandwich creation stuffed with marinated baked chicken, bacon, cheeses, onion, barbecue sauce, and homemade ranch ($7.95), or the meatball parmesan hoagie ($7.50).
Before journeying into patrons' bellies, the organic and fair-trade coffees and mochas at the Corner Perk are roasted locally and ground just before being brewed. To avoid confusion and offending tall people, the Corner Perk sizes their imbibing treats in plain English: a 12-ounce Lil', a 16-ounce Big, and a 20-ounce Biggest. The coffee selection includes international varieties such as the mild Columbian Huila peaberry, the medium Ethiopia harrar, and the bold Malawaii Wowwee. Those in need of stronger pick-uppers can also dabble their taste buds in hot or iced Americanos ($1.90 Lil', $2.30 Big, and $2.60 Biggest) and Mochas ($3.10 Lil', $3.60 Big, $3.90 Biggest). Great for saving syllables and helping a yeti through a 12-hour workday, ice-blended frappys ($3.35 to $4.35) are made with Ghirardelli chocolates and come in coffee, caramel, mocha, and white mocha flavors. While beverages or smoothies can quench customers' thirsts, a wide selection of breakfast and lunch sandwiches can amuse bored teeth.
