Wake up with dishes from Giminetti's breakfast menu. Fork through a fluffy stack of syrup-drenched pancakes ($3.50 for stack of three) or opt for a cheesy omelette ($4) with melted sharp cheddar. Brownies ($2), white-chocolate macadamia-nut cookies ($0.75), and monstrous Danishes ($1.50) tempt sweet teeth. For midday meals, try the vedgewich ($5.50), an array of tempting veggies (grilled onions, mushrooms, bell peppers, tomatoes, sprouts, cucumbers) and savory provolone plopped between slices of multigrain rustica and slathered with a liberal dose of horseradish mayo. Subs, hoagies, burgers, and paninis appease meatier palates.

If they can peel their eyes away from the bright-orange walls and lime-green café chairs, first-time visitors to fave will be struck by the unusual flavors of yogurt that pump from the shop’s self-serve machines. Red velvet, blueberry acai, pumpkin, and peppermint are just some of the menu’s not-so-common selections. Fresh fruits, nuts, and candies such as Oreos and peanut-butter cups pile atop the swirled peaks, transforming each into a healthful snack or decadent dessert.

Innovative flavors are not all that sets fave apart from other yogurt shops: the café also stuffs hot crepes with sweet and savory fillings such as chocolate, bananas, and barbecued chicken. Guests seated in the lounge can enjoy smoothies and steamy coffee drinks, while those on the patio outside can garnish their bubble teas with one of the massive overhead umbrellas.
