Following Baja Fresh’s ethos set in 1990 as a healthy take on fast food, never-frozen meats sizzle atop the grill before they're tucked into made-to-order tacos and burritos. Grilled corn and flour tortillas embrace fish, carnitas, chicken, and steak, and smoky queso fundido sidles onto nachos and into burritos. Between bites, chips scoop up salsa made from farm-fresh produce rather than poured out of a can or fabricated in a space-age replicator. A complimentary salsa bar ensures no mouthful goes unspiced, and guests can scoop up their favorites as they await their dine-in, takeout, or catering orders.

Red Velvet Cupcakery's trained pastry chefs fashion the cupcakes on their menu from European butters, Maldon sea salt, local dairy products, and other premium ingredients. The Washington Post Express concluded that their devil's-food cupcake's rich buttermilk cake topped with Valrhona bittersweet-chocolate ganache "is sinfully satisfying," and hailed their red-velvet Southern Belle's whipped cream-cheese frosting as "simple, elegant, and too scrumptious for words." Customers can sate cravings with cupcakes available in gluten-free, sugar-free, and vegan varieties.
With graduations, weddings, and whale-wrestling season fast approaching, a customized party cake serves as a tasty treat for groups of gathered revelers. A 10-inch party cake from Maribelle serves about 30 people, and the cakery's abundant bounty of flavors and fillings will please even the most picky cake connoisseur. Plump a lemon almond cake with red raspberry filling, or infuse a rich German chocolate cake with fresh sliced strawberries or Frangelico cream. Any combination of bakery beautifying extras—be they fresh-cut or frosting flowers, chocolate-dipped strawberries, chocolate curls and shavings, or curly ribbons—are included in the price, so pile on the ornamentation to construct a memorable masterpiece.
Renowned for whipping up customized event and wedding cakes from scratch, the oven gurus at Marco's Patisserie brandish confectionary prowess to craft miniature morsels using high-caliber ingredients and 10 flavors of frosting. Customers can celebrate a milestone event or hone their juggling abilities with a half-dozen cupcakes in the form of vanilla, chocolate, yellow butter, carrot, or red velvet—a patron favorite. Be sure to place orders three days prior to pickup to ensure the bakers have plenty of time to decadently gussy up baby cakes after they’re delivered from the pastry stork.
Avenue Coffee's certified baristas serve responsible coffee with a level of dedication that shows from the drink selection to their latte art. These bean shamans heat their espresso ($1.75) to 202 ¬¬ºF to achieve quality taste with none of the bitterness that characterizes coffees who never got a reply on their screenplay treatment. Offer a date a choice between a white- or dark-chocolate mocha ($3.25–$4.25) to determine their allegiance to the dark side. Delicious baked goods such as muffins ($2.25) and bear claws ($2.75) arrive fresh daily, but it's always an option to adopt a pastry orphaned from the previous day ($1.25) as well.
