Donut dignitaries Matt Rohdie and his wife, Jen Downey, craft their delicious morsels from scratch using high-quality organic ingredients and sell them out of their Allied Lane location as well as Gypsy, their red donut wagon. Fried to order in less than five minutes, each donut sates ravenous sweet teeth with a sumptuous mixture of organic eggs, apple cider, and spices deep-fried in pure soybean oil and dusted with cinnamon sugar ($10/dozen or redeem the Groupon for a prepaid $10 punch card). The nirvana-inducing circles are devoid of hydrogenation, trans-fats, and performance-enhancing sprinkles. Carpe Donut's organic coffee, Italian cioccolata, and freshly mulled hot cider ($2 each) blend ideally with their succulent donuts ($1 each). Matt and his family proudly display the Arbor Day cards that Mother Nature sends them for converting all of the used oil into green biofuel.

When they craft their seasonal menu, the cooks at AVA Restaurant and Wine Bar aren't looking to impress diners with unfamiliar dishes. Instead, they wow taste buds with rich, robust flavors, roasted duck breast to meatloaf kicked up a notch by chipotle cream sauce. For vegan and vegetarian visitors, AVA's culinary team draws on organic and local fruits, veggies, and grains to create meals such as vegan chicken and waffles. Meatless or not, each feast can be accompanied by pours from an award-winning wine list curated by the eatery's onsite sommelier. Bartenders also serve plenty of beer, as well as custom, exotic tea blends.

Adventure-seeking palates will be pleased with a nibble of molasses cookies, a feather-light update of a sugary standby tickled with accents of applesauce, ground ginger, and cloves.

If the round, pastel-colored tables at Lynchburg’s Sundae Grill could speak, they might regale listeners with stories of their earlier life, spent at a Disney World café frequented by the park’s most animated characters. Given the same chance, the pink and baby-blue booths would not speak but rather sing; though they now host a continual stream of diners come to sample the restaurant’s famous burgers and sundaes, they once belonged to pop sensation Celine Dion. With more than 101 choices of ice cream and desserts—including a staggering 56 sundae options—Sundae Grill lives up to and continues to build on the legacies of its own furnishings. Though the diner’s marinated, seasoned, and charbroiled burgers have won local awards throughout the years, owners BH and Mrs. K insist on rounding out their menu with recipes culled from across America—BH personally traveled the country looking for the most interesting hot-dog recipes from each region. This same dedication to variety informs Mrs. K’s lengthy list of so-called super sundaes. Local favorites include a caramel-pecan combination topped with whipped cream and a Death by Chocolate selection served with a napkin that doubles as a last will and testament.
