Though she specializes in doggy facials and massage, Kelly is armed with the skills and tools to spruce up both kitties and all breeds of canines, readying them for shows, everyday living, or immediate romps in backyard mud puddles. To keep families' furry companions as healthy on the inside as they are adorable on the outside, Lola's Healthy Pet Cafe purveys brands of food and treats comprising natural and holistic ingredients.
The chefs at Mimmo's Pizza Cafe & Catering favor Grande Mozzarella—a tender and buttery Italian cheese that can bake in high-temperature pizza ovens without getting scorched. They shower this magical mozzarella atop thin-crust and Sicilian-style pies before adding on fresh toppings such as eggplant, garlic, and green peppers. The versatile chefs also extend their culinary expertise toward a variety of other traditional Italian dishes, including ravioli, lasagna, and chicken parmigiana. They layer focaccia bread with turkey, ham, and roast beef, along with brie and dabs of spicy mustard.
As chefs slice up pizza pies and hot subs in the kitchen, baristas busy themselves behind the café counter. They whip up espresso beverages with a variety of decadent ingredients, from shaved almonds to sweet chocolate syrup to juicy cherries plucked from the gardens of ancient Roman deities.
Churromania makes a single treat countless ways. The Venezuelan snack shop, a creation of Ariel Acosta-Rubio, Maria Alejandra Bravo, and Miguel Bravo, might dust its crispy churros with sugar, drizzle them with chocolate, or fill them with cream cheese. Orders of Crispy Mania blend sugar and cinnamon, and each Big Mania comes to tables filled with one of eight toppings, including guava and Nutella. Instead of sucking humidity out of the air with a big straw, visitors can stay hydrated with more than a dozen hot and cold beverages.
Out front, a glowing sign hangs above the door, reading 'Gigi's Music Cafe.' Inside, you might find live music, karaoke, and even trivia, depending on the day.

Gigi's serves classic American dishes with a twist, including fried chicken with a buttermilk waffle, soul rolls—collard green spring rolls—and country turkey meatloaf with sweet potatoes.

Mozart Cafe’s chefs draw culinary inspiration from modern Israeli cuisine, and the result is an eclectic mix of made-from-scratch kosher dishes ranging from pizza and salad to breakfast salmon platters. The Balkan pizza blends Israeli and Italian flavors with olives chunks of smoky eggplant sitting atop a bed of sauce, mozzarella, and feta cheese. Though the café is decidedly health-focused, plates arrive piled high with portions as generous as what you’d find in a neighborhood diner or your mom’s kitchen.
