Perkins began as a single humble Ohio pancake house in 1958. More than 50 years––and 440 national locations––later, each Perkins restaurant stays true to its roots by keeping those signature buttermilk pancakes the focal point of a 90-plus-item menu. Cooks layer the popular flapjacks in stacks of two, three, or even five and make the fluffy towers all the more tempting with toppings such as glazed strawberries, whipped cream, or flavored syrups. Breakfast favorites—including hearty omelets and country benedicts—are served all day, meaning kids and adults can order short stacks to accompany their jumbo-shrimp or steak dinner, instead of smuggling them in under a stovepipe hat. Unlike most other chain restaurants, Perkins also features in-store bakeries that churn out the shop's real fruit and cream pies, muffins, and chocolate-chip cookies.
Moonlight Creamery, an ice cream shop founded by an engineer and her entrepreneurial neighbor, stresses two things: confections and community. The former is abundant, as scoops of homemade ice cream highlight a menu of sweets that includes cakes and pies, hot fudge sundaes with roasted walnuts, and handmade truffles. As for its mission to give back, the shop looks far and near, focusing on everything from using Fair Trade coffee and chocolate to hosting an annual Scholarship Day that raises money for its employees and local high school seniors who are enrolling in college.
