The friendly staffers at Holland Laundry suds threads of clothes and linens, fluff them dry, and fold them with precise, practiced hands. Sullied garments spiff up with a fresh-smelling lather ($0.95/pound), and other washables such as comforters, rugs, and reputations ($1.25/pound) return to owners crisply folded and refreshed. The convenient drop-off service, plus free bleach and softener available for all drop-offs, frees customers' schedules and takes a chore off their hands, leaving them with more time to relax and ponder the twist ending of Mary Poppins.
At Dégagé Express, Head Chef Joseph Jacobsen uses techniques learned beside Jacques Pépin and Bobby Flay to transform locally sourced meats and produce—most cultivated within 30 miles of the restaurant—into elegant sandwiches and desserts. These ingredients fill the menu, composing seasonal dishes such as the Missy's Fix sandwich, made with housemade corned beef, apple slaw, thousand-island dressing, and local sauerkraut. Sous Chef Skyler Stanton, meanwhile, cooks soups such as the Train Wreck Chili. A testament to the culinary staff's creativity, croutons flavored with bacon fat and cheese top the restaurant's caesar salad, and housemade hot chocolate and locally baked pies from Schmucker's lend a sweet note, like a banker who underwrites loans with chocolate coins.
Dégagé Express calls the historic Commercial Building home. It is rumored that none other than Abraham Lincoln stayed at the building when it doubled as an inn way back in the early 19th century. Today, Dégagé uses the winsome building to host another cornerstone of the American experience: live jazz music.
