Kolache Rolf's stuffs puffy pastries with warm, gooey fruit and spiced meats to create treats that stay true to the Czech tradition. One glance at the menu sets tummies a-rumbling with the promise of 23 varieties of kolaches, including breakfasty infusions of bacon and cheese ($1.19) and slovacek sausage and cheese ($1.89) alongside more traditional blends of cream cheese, apricot, and poppy seed ($0.99). Diners delight over chicken-salad-stuffed sandwiches ($4.50), whose hearty innards can be washed down by slurps of broccoli-cheese soup or squirts from shampoo bottles filled with tortilla soup (both $2.99).
Knockouts Grill House wrestles hunger into submission with a brawny menu of edible Americana. Waitresses clad in Western wear put out appetite fires with the help of starters such as stacked nachos which come piled high with blackened chicken, grilled house pico, chipotle sour cream, and—for an extra $1.99—guacamole ($8.49). Gorge on greenery such as the Knockout steak salad with balsamic vinaigrette and blue-cheese crumbles ($9.99), or hunt down a dinner of barbecue-bathed meatloaf matched with mashed potatoes and onion rings ($9.99). The ground beef and chorizo of the Macho burger show off their meaty manliness by carrying around a culinary cargo of ham, pepper-jack cheese, cilantro mayonnaise, lettuce, and pico ($8.99). A selection of breakfast items available all day helps rouse drowsy taste buds from noontime power naps and dreamless evening trances.
Dark wood and flaxen-hued walls surround the scents and savors of wood-fired pizzas, creative pastas, and locally sourced steaks at Café Eccell. Disks of dough hand-forged daily, such as the rustic italian-sausage pizza ($15) or margherita pizza ($13), emerge from the wood-fired oven with a smoky flavor and encyclopedic knowledge of campfire songs. Opportunities for fork-finagling can be found in the seafood linguine, which suffuses shrimp and salmon with tomato-garlic butter on a bed of saffron linguine ($19), and in the 12-ounce USDA Prime rib eye, fetched from local purveyor Ruffino Meats and draped in herb butter ($25). Paying homage to the traditional garb worn on their annual apricot hunts, strawberries disguise themselves in an apricot glaze and hide out in an almond-lace cookie shell lined with Belgian chocolate in Café Eccell’s strawberry tart ($7).

You don't need to know how to jitterbug to get the most out of a visit to Jitterbug Cafe, but just a warning––the creative fare, gelato, and coffee drinks might just make you want to dance anyway. After all, what's not to love about strawberry-shortcake oatmeal with whipped cream? Or rocky road frappes? Or tabletop s'mores featuring marshmallows roasted by diners over an open flame or through pyrokinesis? The fun and flavorful options might even inspire you to dream up your own smoothie or latte, which could make it onto the staff's running tab of the drinks customers have created themselves, such as the Saba, a spicy hot chocolate blended with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, or the Cloud 9, a drink made with creamy white chocolate and coconut.
