Inside Cobbler's Cafe's sky-lit dining area, you can still see some of the original bricks from when the building was constructed in 1878. Since that time, it's been a doctor's office, a jewelry store, and a shoe-repair business. From shoe cobblers to baked cobblers, owners Jayme and Kristi Burden have transformed the space into a quaint café that serves coffee, espresso drinks, and organic teas aside breakfast dishes and baked goods. Diners can sink teeth into omelets and breakfast sandwiches loaded with bacon and cheese or pick up fresh-baked muffins and scones.
Delano's crafts a menu of delicious pizza, pasta, calzones, grinders, and more. Because tongues are fussy about what you feed them, the pizzasmiths forge their crusts out of fresh dough made daily, and then they cover it with sauce that's measured out carefully, lightly applied, and politely thanked for its contribution.
Kids at Blazer's Fun Zone scramble over 22,000 square feet of indoor attractions, including an inflatable playground and a rock-climbing wall. After donning socks, pocket-sized climbers can bounce down air-filled blue slides, scale pillowy castle turrets, or bound around a jungle gym softer than a marshmallow-stuffed teddy bear. Alternately, mend strained hand-eye relationships as you deftly conquer the rock-climbing cliff, or inspire fellow putters with practiced strokes on the mini golf course. Twinkle-toed rollers can also opt to enjoy unlimited skating. While parents peruse free WiFi, tykes can refuel for all-day amusement and cutthroat tiddlywinks negotiations by slurping down a slice of sauce-slathered pizza and a small drink.
Every day, Snappy Tomato Pizza’s cooks mix high-protein flour in 60-quart mixers to create the fresh dough that gives the restaurant’s pies their signature taste. They adorn each round pizza crust with mozzarella cheese, fresh vegetables, and sauce crafted from the tomatoes of select California growers. They carefully separate tomatoes by acid content, with only the best ones used for sauce and the worst ones saved to throw at any smug looking teenagers. Oven-baked hoagie sandwiches, Tyson chicken wings, and cinnabreads topped with cinnamon streusel and vanilla icing round out the full menu.
The pizza at Papa Murphy’s Take 'N' Bake Pizza is always cold. Not because it's old, but because it’s so fresh that it hasn’t been cooked yet. Assembled and customized before your eyes, the colorful, unbaked disk is then taken home and thrown into your own oven. The crust crisps to exactly your preference, whether a thin crust bubbling with chicken, bacon, and artichoke, or a Chicago–style stuffed with salami, pepperoni, sausage, and ground beef. Each pizza can also be customized from scratch, with ambitious eaters choosing from 8 meats, 4 cheeses, and 15 veggie toppings. A bevy of side plates complements any meal, with crisp salads, bake-your-own cookie dough, and dessert pizzas.
A loud whistle sounds off in the distance, signaling the arrival of a steam locomotive. The train pulls past dozens of trees and into the station. It’s just another day at the Kentucky Railway Museum, where new and restored trains take visitors on nostalgic journeys through the New Haven countryside. The area’s scenic landscapes encompass 17 miles of track that meander around scenic Mount Vernon. The stationary exhibit hall—a replica of the original New Haven depot—houses a collection of railroad artifacts and memorabilia ranging from rail carts and dining cars to steam whistles and the discarded mustaches of malevolent railroad barons.
Colonel Eure opened his first pizza restaurant in 1964 and when time came to open another franchise five years later, he named it Gatti's Pizza in honor of his wife's maiden name. The Gatti's Pizza empire steadily expanded over the next four decades, thanks in part to a commitment to high-quality ingredients such as real cheese, yeast-risen dough made fresh daily, and a 16-ingredient secret sauce protected by Swiss bankers. Today, chefs prepare specialty pies such as the barbecue chicken and bacon double cheeseburger pizza and bake custom creations from a choice of 17 toppings and three crust options. Many Gatti's locations boast a dining room complete with a big-screen TV, and some include a Veggie Tales room, a sports room, and a game room.
