  • Lazy J Coffee
    Owner Donna Smith-Grice describes her father Jimmy Smith as drinking his coffee the way he lived his life: "strong and sweet." Inspired by the wafting aromas of his daily coffee pots drifting up from her childhood memories, she opened her own coffee shop and borrowed his first initial to complete the name of the newly born Lazy J Coffee. In keeping with its homey origins, the café's interior seems more like an eclectic living room than a restaurant, with well-worn leather couches facing a faux fireplace and a small wooden buffet topped with old-fashioned candleholders. Amidst this domestic comfort, baristas steam mugfulls of the shop's signature grind and specialty espresso drinks or fill cups with fruit smoothies that, like recovered cyborgs, are entirely organic.

  • Sweet Genius Treats
    Damon Bufford??the self-proclaimed brilliant baker behind Sweet Genius Treats??has a good reason to be so confident in his sweets, which have been featured on Spike TV. He tests them all with near and dear family members first, only baking for the public those sweets which pass his relative's taste test. Luckily, they have complex palates, craving inventive and savory flavors as well. They've greenlit everything from chocolate chip candied bacon cookies to cream cheese-filled snickerdoodles. The most popular treat on the menu is the strawberry lemonade cookie, an original invention designed to bring smiles to faces, which Damon says his wife created in memory of their son.

  • Churro Factory
    The talented chefs at The Churro Factory imbue crispy pastries with seven different sweet fillings to fashion a scrumptious, Spanish-styled snack, often introduced by an opening act of fresh deli sandwiches and milkshakes. Handmade in small batches to ensure freshness, traditional churros are dusted with sugar and cinnamon ($1.95 each, $9.95 for six), tickling tongues better than a feather-boa toothbrush. Palate-popular pastries include the filled churros with flavorful cores of vanilla, chocolate-hazelnut, cajeta, strawberry, or honey ($2.25 each). Appetites of larger proportions can match hunger against the oven-warmed Pamplones sandwiches ($4+ each), featuring the Chasturias with turkey and avocado and the Chadiz steak fajita with bell peppers and oaxaca cheese. Five enrapturing milkshake flavors mingle into the dining party, including oreo, strawberry, and chocolate ($3.29 each), tantalizing guests with their smooth sips and proactive straw postures.

  • PJ's Popcorn
    At PJ's Popcorn, wall-to-wall shelves of popcorn tubs complement wooden racks filled with general-store candy and crates and barrels filled with gumballs, gift boxes, and confections.

The popcorn flavors run the gamut from savory to sweet, with varieties as diverse as loaded potato, salt and vinegar, Oreo, and watermelon. A diverse selection of pro-football and collegiate popcorn tins allow snackers to show off their team pride without the need for eating with cumbersome foam #1 fingers.
