Sandwich lovers at Submarine House share juicy East Coast–style delicacies, slinging out crowd-pleasing ultra-stacked cheesesteaks and toasted deli subs. A staple of the shop, the cheesesteak packs grilled steak with enough protein to beef up Gumby and tops it with melted cheese and a sauce of mayonnaise, vinegar dressing, and hot-pepper relish ($5.59 for an 8"). Extend sandwiches mouthward with upgrades such as extra meat and cheese, mushrooms, or Italian-ized steaks slathered with marinara and pepperoni ($5.79+ for an 8"). Another NYC-inspired lunch, the regular sub slices salami onto a baked Italian bun ($4.99 for an 8"), and fresh deli sandwiches pep up turkey, ham, or veggies with a kick of house-made sauce ($4.99+ for an 8"). A selection of crispy pizzas ($6.79+), spicy wings ($6.99 for 8), and gyros ($5.19+) round out the shop’s sandwich-dominated menu, just as a strobe light rounds out a strong State of the Union speech.

The Winans family has been making lives a little sweeter for more than a century. During the Great Depression, townspeople would flock to the family’s bakery in Piqua with their sugar rations. Owner Wayne Winans would take that sugar and turn it into freshly baked cookies—a small pick-me-up at a time when even small pick-me-ups were a luxury. Years later, Wayne’s sons, Max and Dick, carried the family torch into the 1960s, when the first Winans Fine Chocolates & Coffees was born.
Today, the Winans family continues to do what it does best at three Ohio locations. All of the business’s chocolates are handmade, with no preservatives or fillers, and never cryogenically frozen. The family’s emphasis on freshness carries over to their coffee, too, which has frequently been named the area's best by the readers of the Dayton Business Journal and the Dayton Daily News. The secret is in their roasting process—their small, 15-pound roaster requires them to roast the beans in small batches, which leads to a more consistent product. Once the beans are ready, coffee artisans carefully combine them with other roasts to create a vast assortment of flavors, which includes 11 house coffee blends, 12 flavored coffees, and even more seasonal selections.
Inside HoneyBaked Ham, chefs uphold the same traditions that Harry J. Hoenselaar created more than 40 years ago. Back then, he chose individual hams, cured them in his secret marinade, and smoked them over hardwood chips before offsetting the earthy flavor with a crisp, sweet glaze. To this day, the staff makes the signature bone-in hams one at a time and glazes them in the shop.
To go with the meats, the kitchen whips up classic side dishes and desserts, such as the sweet-potato soufflé. For less formal feasting, party trays and packed lunch boxes fuel business meetings, backyard grad parties, and lengthy end-zone celebrations.
At self-serve stations inside Awesome Yogurt, visitors help themselves to ribbons of cool, creamy frozen yogurt in a variety of flavors.

But no matter which type you choose, all of Awesome Yogurts frozen yogurts are even awesomer when customized at the toppings bar stocked with delicious add-ons like fresh fruit, whipped cream, and candy.
