Matt Thomas, a board-certified Doctor of Chiropractic, runs 360° Chiropractic & Wellness with his wife Monesa, the business's director of operations. Extensively experienced in the spinal arts, Dr. Thomas, who also responds to the less formal Dr. Matt, will begin each appointment with a full exam (a $135 value) and consultation (a $75 value). After listening to both the muscular and skeletal sides of the story, he'll internalize the investigation with a set of x-rays (a $150 value). After a full report of the findings (a $90 value), Dr. Thomas will perform a full adjustment (a $55 value). At 360° Chiropractic & Wellness, sound nutritional guidance walks hand in hand with specific chiropractic care. Instead of rewarding patients with a lollipop, the licensed massage therapists delight backs with a 30-minute deep-tissue massage (a $30 value). Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
At Starwood Cafe, 6:30 in the morning might as well be time for dessert. The breakfast menu here doesn't shy away from sweet specialty dishes, including homemade french crepes stuffed with bananas and Nutella or pancakes with Oreo crumbles blended into the batter. But this family-owned restaurant does more than just churn out inventive sweets. The staffers also tip their collective hats to the classics. They serve biscuits with sausage gravy, farm-fresh eggs with grits, and skillets full of hash browns and toppings.
Once the day segues into lunchtime, the cafe composes sandwiches and wraps alongside gourmet salads. Grilled teriyaki-salmon stir-fry speaks to the kitchen's versatility, while tuna melts and deep-fried Atari games show the cooks' passion for nostalgia. And some entrees, such as the chicken-fried steak, are just as delicious in the afternoon as they are at sunrise. Regardless of what you order, almost everything that makes its way from the kitchen to the dining table abides by Starwood's strict philosophy, which prizes freshness and made-from-scratch quality above all else.
