While adults sip gourmet brews from Seattle’s Best and bolster blood cells with fuel from the colorful and healthy menu, children can chow down on grilled Cheesasaurus sandwiches or dash off to one of the three sunny adjoining playrooms. One space entertains kids ages 2–6, encouraging theatrical, creative play, while the s'mores-soft Tot Spot amuses kids under 2, and older kids improve hand-eye-coordination playing a variety of video games. Adults can choose to observe the anthropological doings within, or check kids in with a qualified playroom sitter and return to the calm land of rooibos, biscotti, and the art of adult conversation.

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.

The Soup Spot comforts Harrisburg tummies and tongues with toasted sandwiches, fresh salads, and a rotating selection of soups inspired by Dutch and Creole flavors. Typical bowl-fillers include dirty rice, a deceivingly fresh concoction of chicken, sausage, ground beef, and vegetables ($3.95 for medium), or stromboli soup, a creamy tomato-based soup once used by the Italians to quench the throats of erupting volcanoes ($4.65 for medium). Champagne salad forgoes corks for feta, almonds, craisins, and mandarin orange slices ($6.50), while lebanon bologna and swiss cheese wrestle to win the sweet affections of honey mustard in a Frying Dutchman sandwich ($4.95). Check the updated online menu or call ahead to learn soup specials or alternate uses for croutons.

The Whole Cannoli serves a fresh menu of breakfast and lunch fare, made with a focus on local and organic ingredients. Sip the café's made-to-order fresh-pressed coffees or fresh-fruit smoothies, and adorn your free hand with some handmade cannoli (available in traditional, chocolate, caramel, peanut, or almond) ($2.50). Spin the traditional like it's the Earth atop Shaq's finger by sampling the Sicilian cannoli, filled with candied fruit and nut-laced orange-blossom cream ($3.25). Baked breakfast is also available, with options including meaty, cheesy, and vegetabley frittata ($3), and bogliolati Italian sausage ($1.50).
