A family-owned business, the Kayce Cupcakes shop was built by the hands of the White family—Larry White Jr. assembled the chairs and tables and Kathy Owen White and her daughter Kayce adorned the walls in bright stripes, while their infant granddaughter cooed and gurgled encouragingly. Each morning, the family and its staff fold premium ingredients into fresh batches of gourmet cupcakes in an ever-changing array of flavors. The chefs extend their culinary expertise towards classics like double chocolate and vanilla, and also experiment with innovative flavors such as maple bacon and chocolate chili. Cupcakes in hand, guests can snack at the numerous tabletops that scatter the sunny shop, or order custom cupcakes by the dozens to share with friends in the comfort of their own garages.

Crepes Tea House is a cozy, sun-drenched eatery that offers homemade crepes, more than 100 varieties of tea, and Eastern European specialty dishes for every meal of the day. As customers sink into one of the cafe's big, plush couches, artisan chefs make savory crepes with beef, pork, and turkey, or sweet ones with fresh fruit, warm chocolate, or honey. Items such as zucchini, potato, or farm-cheese pancakes and Polish sausage are served at breakfast, while lunch sees plates of Siberian pelmeni dumplings packed with ground beef and stacked to form a wall that can be seen from space. At dinner, the restaurant's chefs glaze fresh salmon with honey and pan-fry whitefish and tuna cutlets until golden brown. Whether patrons carry a conversation at one of the eatery’s tables for a full meal, or settle at the sleek bar for a quick cup of tea or coffee, the teahouse’s vibrant orange walls and floor-to-ceiling windows make for a comfortable experience.

Gluten-free goodies like muffins, bagels, and cookies complement cups of joe in the morning, while entrees of salads and wraps appear around lunchtime. By day, patrons can enjoy these meals while taking in 226's surrounding art shows?panoplies of local paintings, photography, and mixed media that rotate monthly. The final part of the equation is live jazz, which transforms the space on two Saturday nights each month.
