Nestled amid the rustic buildings and specialty shops of the historic town of Fredericksburg, Tea Tyme & What Nots’ classic tea parlor fits right in. Soft lanterns illuminate deep red walls and couples chat over trays of cucumber sandwiches and ornamental cups of tea. Old-fashioned pots simmer with brews from the parlor’s more than 100 different black, green, and herbal varieties, sending the aroma of fragrant spices, tangy fruits, and crisp mint into the air. Teas pair with multi-tiered platters of housemade pastries, savory sandwiches, and wholesome salads upon antique wooden tabletops.

Within the parlor’s onsite shop, shelves glimmer with elegant costume jewelry and jars of loose-leaf teas. Throughout the year, the tearoom plays host to special events, from children’s tea parties to the lumberjacks’ bimonthly book club.

Housed in a building that dates back to 1805, Sammy T's whips up vegetarian and vegan entrees within the same walls that once contained an auction house and a post office. Cooks combine all of their specialties to create the Camper’s Special, a bean and grain burger wrap that packs green pepper, mushrooms, melted cheese, and lemon tahini dressing inside a grilled flour tortilla. Diners can also enjoy tempeh stir-fries and black bean cakes as they admire nearby artwork or attempt to pull chewy strips of wood from the parquet ceiling. Strict carnivores can also chomp their way through Sammy’s menu by dining on salmon BLTs, burgers, and pulled pork made from a spicy family recipe. A sprawling self-serve frozen yogurt bar cools palates with 10 rotating flavors and 40 toppings.

On a warm August day in 1938, a father and son unveiled the first sample of what was to become Dairy Queen, selling 1,600 samples on the first day, a feat as unheard of as a dragon that breathes ice. Its ensuing prolific expansion was fueled by its frozen treats, which propelled the dessert shop from 100 stores in 1947 to 1,446 in 1950. Today, their dessert recipes remain largely unchanged, and Dairy Queen has added hearty grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, and fried chicken to its menu. Dairy Queen's enormous dessert menu boasts treats ranging from soft-serve cones and blizzards filled with cookies to takeaway ice-cream sandwiches and cakes.
