Situated amid grand columns, flowing curtains, and the golden fabric of high-backed chairs, the main tearoom of Coco’s Tea Room & Bistro surrounds patrons in the grandeur of a traditional high tea. Steaming pots of tea for two are full of the steeping leaves of free-trade teas in varieties such as darjeeling second flush oolong, or organic blueberry rooibos. To accompany teas, patrons can order homemade cakes and cobblers crowned with scoops of ice cream. Heartier meals of café-style food include muffuletta sandwiches, slices of garden quiche, and caesar salads, led unknowingly to tabletops to meet the forks of their destruction.
Doctor of Chiropractic Dylan Lin adjusts the spines of individuals of all age groups, from newborns just a few hours old to centenarians, and helps athletes such as Texas Rangers players improve their performance and chronic issues. Treatments take place in an office with an exterior that resembles a castle, its stone façade and pointed tower concealing a spacious facility in which Dr. Lin heals without drugs, surgery, or phoenix tears, but only with the most precise and specific chiropractic care.
A lifelong athlete, Dr. Lin has collected firsthand wisdom about physiology that he translates into a specialty in sports injury treatment and prevention. He also uses specific protocols to fix spinal misalignments, advises patients in good nutrition, and doles out corrective exercises to help patients gain an edge in sports performance or relieve chronic pain, migraines, sleeping problems, along with many other health issues.
The Fig Leaf Cleaning Company's licensed and bonded maids forgo synthesized chemicals in favor of natural oils and bio-enzymes during thorough housecleaning sessions. Tidy technicians can send vacuums roaring across floor surfaces and the bushy backs of sleeping uncles before dusting frills and furniture and collecting garbage. Sanitizer scours kitchen and bathroom counters and appliances, and spiders abscond from their abodes as cleaners shoo away cobwebs. Maids opt to use the vacuum, mop, broom, and toilet brush that belong to domiciles, as shared items often spread germs and trade secrets.
Since 2003, Costa Vida has been passing on their passion for food and life by infusing zest into every meal, made from scratch daily with fresh ingredients. With certified executive chef David Prows at the helm, the Costa Vida menu features fiesta favorites such as enchiladas ($3.99–$5.99), quesadillas ($3.99+), and nachos ($3.99+). Bite into a burrito bursting with cheese, cilantro lime rice, black or pinto beans, and your choice of sweet pork, grilled steak or chicken, shredded beef, raspberry chipotle chicken, chili verde, or vegetarian ($5.49+). Top it off with one of four savory signature sauces: mango, red enchilada, roasted green chili, or tomatillo cilantro (additional $0.99). Tantalizing tacos fold a hand-made tortilla into an envelope, containing a mouthful of a message that says te amo to tastebuds with shredded cheese, leafy greens, pico de gallo salsa, and preferred protein, and served with cilantro lime rice and black or pinto beans ($4.99–$5.99 for one).
At Which Way Pizza, guests stand face-to-face with a humble, unadorned round of dough. No matter what happens in the next six minutes—two to pile on unlimited toppings, and four to cook the pie—every pizza costs the same.
Ordering kicks off with the sauce. You could choose the roma tomato or you go for the gusto with pesto, barbeque, ranch, or a blend of all three. Next comes as many of the seven cheeses, including cheddar and asiago, as your conscience will allow, laying the groundwork for veggies such as artichokes, spinach, and jalapenos. Last but not least come the meats, including grilled, barbecue, and buffalo chicken, as well as Italian sausage, and Canadian and traditional bacon.
When frosting her signature cakes, cookies, and sweets, C. Marie’s Sweets’ professional pastry chef Christine Shulman draws on her lifetime of baking scholarship and experience. The bakery fills with the aroma of cupcakes and cakes in uncommon flavors, such as black forest with red cherries and italian-buttercream frosting and yellow cake with sweet amaretto liquor and almond buttercream. A dozen signature sugar cookies can be custom decorated with snowflakes for Christmas or Grover Cleveland's face for Presidents’ Day, and peanut-butter cookies coddle Hershey kisses. Bakery specialties include an espresso-infused tiramisu and chocolate-ganache brownies with creamy, mustache-clinging frosting.
