At C'est Si Bon Cafe, crepe-makers take the delicate, ultra-thin French-style pancakes and fold them over both sweet and savory ingredients while patrons look on. The buttery pockets hold everything from roast beef, blue cheese, saut?ed mushrooms and onions, fresh arugula, and a bourbon sauce to Nutella, bananas, and pecans. The reviewer at Columbus Underground particularly loved the dessert crepes, calling the Banana "dynamite" and saying "its butter and brown sugar make the flavors blend into something akin to old-school dessert favorite, Bananas Foster."

C'est Si Bon Cafe's hand-scrawled chalkboard menu shows off the crepes, which can accommodate gluten-free diners. Staffers also assemble breakfast crepes.

For 75 years, Drexel Theatre has showcased an eclectic, globetrotting mix of the latest offerings from Hollywood and the independent-film scene. These days, all three of the nonprofit theater's auditoriums screen those pictures with digital projections and Dolby digital sound. Every so often, however, the theater's proprietors dust off their old 35-millimeter projectors for specialty showings of classic films, such as the spooky flicks at Drexel's annual 24-hour horror marathon. That only skims the surface of the Drexel's events lineup, which includes silent pictures with live scores and onetime screenings followed by Q&As with the filmmakers. The membership program introduced in 2011 boasts more than 400 members, whose loyalty and commitment to keeping the theater open is rewarded with discounted tickets, free concessions, and invitations to advanced screenings.

Urban-Spirit's eclectic art gallery and coffee shop honors Columbus's unique jazz history and the struggle for equality endured by African Americans. The shop has dedicated much of this tribute to the lives of two men, Doctors William Arthur Method and his friend R. M. Tribbett, who built the Alpha Hospital in 1920 to employ and heal their community. The shop, where baristas dole out coffee, specialty drinks, and pastries, is located in the historic Alpha building and is also home to the Loft Gallery. This gallery showcases and sells the works of independent and youth artists monthly, and it even invites featured artists to create masterpieces on premises. The Urban-Spirit Education Foundation, a subsidiary of Urban-Spirit Coffee Shop, works with its humanitarian partners to evoke social change and artistic development within the community. They strive to expand the horizons of budding young artists, entrepreneurs, and students through special events, art-education workshops, and competitive internships. They also put their diverse knowledge to use through consulting services, joining forces with local businesses to aid in professional development, program design, and event coordination.

Boujhetto's owner Marlene Carson didn't always think she was going to own a soul-food joint; in fact, the eatery grew out of her work starting Rahab's Hideaway, a local shelter and resource center for victims of human trafficking. Carson, as she described to NBC, is herself a survivor of trafficking, and founded Rahab's Hideaway to help women put their lives back on track. Boujhetto's gives a leg up to Rahab's clients by offering training and employment cooking and serving soul food. The eatery has been lauded on Oprah.com and profiled on NBC for helping empower women to build solid new lives for themselves.

Boujhetto's menu contains plenty of Southern-style food, from breakfasts of grits, sausage, and chicken and waffles to entrees of crispy-fried pork chops. In the sandy-yellow dining room, visitors chow down on items such as burgers, fish sandwiches, chicken and waffles, Kool-Aid Pickles, and Grippo's wings. The restaurant also hosts special community enrichment events during after hours.
