Twenty individual flavors range from fruity watermelon and key lime to rich almond and tootsie roll. Cool tongues overheated from stamp-licking marathons with 14-flavor combinations, including classic neapolitan and nonalcoholic peach champagne, which blends an orchard's worth of strawberry, lemon, and raspberry. A small ice garners two scoops from Sunset Slush's bright yellow coolers, set into a purple kiosk between Aldo and M.A.C. The fine-grained frozen treats are free of fat, dairy, gluten, and sidewalk salt for worry-free refreshment.

Salvador Deli offers a menu decorated with signature sandwiches and a "paint your own portrait" option that allows you to create your own masterpiece. Sink your hunger fangs into the fan-flavorite Cubano ($5.99), a medley of ham, baby swiss, tangy mustard, and pickles pressed between two hearty slices of focaccia bread. The star-crossed veggie lover ($5.99) is a layered concoction of pesto mayo, muenster, avocado, red-pepper hummus, sprouts, red onion, lettuce, tomato, and cukes on multi-grain bread. If the eclectic art sprinkled throughout the deli inspires you to explore your inner creative weirdness, you can customize your own sandwich ($4.99 to $6.99). Start by choosing a bread base, then decide on the proper protein source, and top it off with veggies and sauces.

Presto Bar and Grill spurns frozen and canned foods, instead offering the freshest meats, seafood, and vegetables, artfully presented and crafted with personal attention. Presto Grill's menu is headlined by the Angus burger, a sumptuous half-pound of fresh ground chuck that's char-grilled and tucked in a toasted kaiser roll ($7.75). Pizza purveyors use their jeweler's loupes to inspect the blemish-less spinach-cheese pizza, made in-house with mozzarella, feta, and parmesan cheese ($9.95 for 10"). Those in an aquatic state of mind can nosh on the seafood jambalaya, a mixture of shrimp, scallops, and calamari sautéed in a piquant Cajun tomato-cream sauce ($16.95). Finish by indulging in one of Presto's alluring desserts, such as the tuxedo truffle mousse ($6) and its attendant white-and-dark-chocolate icing, which can be quickly applied as an emergency wedding tuxedo. Sit underneath the red umbrellas dotting Presto Bar and Grill's exquisite rooftop patio, which affords scenic views of the Charlotte skyline, or conquer the Internet on the restaurant's WiFi. With free nearby parking, diners can easily rumble in on coal-powered moto-ottomans.
