The Patio's casual menu of from-scratch soups, vertically impressive sandwiches, and fresh-baked goods has earned a place in locals' hearts and has even caught the printed eye of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Sandwiches such as the pastrami Reuben on marbled rye or the chicken salad snuggle with potato chips and a mini muffin, whose small stature masks a desire for world domination. Diners can marvel at the bistro salad's symphony of flavor, with roasted pecans, dried cranberries, and the baritone rumblings of oven-roasted turkey drizzled with citrus vinaigrette. Café cups house hearty ladles of daily soup specials, including the popular creamy chicken and wild rice, and freshly baked cookies, cupcakes, and bars decorated with sinful toppings or adorable icings add a sweet exclamation point to the end of a casual lunch or dinner. Those opting for the catered box lunches can order any of 11 types of sandwiches, with vegetarian options available, for pickup, delivery, or teletransportation within three miles of the café.
Aromas both sweet and savory waft from the kitchen at Georgia French Bakery & Cafe, where bakers spend each morning kneading and baking pastries and breads. That includes baguettes, which they slice in half and stuff with tasty sandwich fixings.
For more than 50 years, the sweet-treat crafters of The Baking Grounds Bakery Cafe have been churning out customized confectionaries in an old-fashioned, family-run boutique bakery. Dining duos can peruse the made-from-scratch lunch menu items before yodeling out orders, such as ham, turkey, or chicken-salad sandwiches. Bowls of homemade soup and sides of chips chime salty notes against epiglottises as a freshly baked cookie polishes off the meal with a sweet treat.
The bakers of The Baking Grounds whip together freshly crafted cakes for any special occasion, from weddings and anniversaries to graduations from light-pole-climbing school. After discussing designs with a friendly cake constructor, batter bases will be poured from chosen flavors, such as marble, lemon pound, or chocolate-almond pound, which can be encased around cake filling, such as apricot or cannoli. A fondant-free layer of buttercream icing crowns the confectionary masterpiece with delicious icing flavors and skillfully applied swirls and flower cake designs to fill cheek caves.
Trained body wrappers cocoon customers’ corpora in soft, porous bandages that are then soaked in a solution of rich minerals and stardust every 20 minutes. Body Nouveaux uses SlenderTone active wraps, which allow winsome wearers to perform light exercises such as walking in place, working out on a glider, or caber tossing to increase circulation and enhance tightening results. After 60 relaxing minutes, wraps are removed to reveal the shapely new figure within.
The threading technique that Brow Arch uses has some pretty substantial advantages over tweezing or blowtorching. Suitable for any skin and hair type, threading uproots hairs by lassoing them with a cotton thread, a process that doesn't damage the surrounding skin and is less irritable to sensitive skin types than waxing is. Since some clients prefer waxing, though, the studio still uses that method to remove hair from the hands, legs, and full face. Complementing the skin-smoothing services are facials that make use of ingredients such as herbs and fruit.
