Yofé Fresh Fruit & Yogurt Café’s healthful menu nourishes patrons with prompt service, probiotics, and dishes made from natural ingredients. Its signature yogurt contains live, active probiotics, which can help digestive functioning and increase one’s tolerance for eating year-old fruitcakes. Along with traditional frozen yogurt with toppings, the staff channels creamy goodness into smoothies or artful parfaits layered with sweet treats such as bananas and vanilla wafers or mixed seasonal berries. For more solid sustenance, customers can choose from a selection of salads and piping-hot paninis. Diners enjoy nibbles in the café's modern setting, which features sleek black chairs amid hues of green and orange. Large glass windows welcome natural light while honeybees try in vain to sneak in through the door and pollinate the eatery’s plastic flowers.

With its variety of deli-style sandwiches, crisp salads, and artisan pizzas, Four Star Caf? seems to have something for everyone. Sandwiches, such as the popular California club, host Boars' Head meats and cheese, and housemade dressings, such as tangy lemon olive-oil vinaigrette and garlic caesar, top fresh salads. Four Star's thin-crust personal pizzas tempt taste buds with toppings such as housemade tomato sauce, feta cheese, and grilled chicken.
The Benson and Brozgold families founded Ol’ South Pancake House in 1962 and have stacked mountains of the same griddle-kissed pancakes from the same menu ever since, sticking to original recipes with the addition of Southern diner favorites. Cooks pour fluffy disks of buttermilk-, buckwheat-, or corn-cake batter to forge the rich foundation for strata of sweet or fruity toppings, including spiced apples, peanut-butter chips, and strawberries. Like off-duty senators nestled safe for the night in the congressional warehouse, pancakes pile into short or tall stacks, or in a behemoth pile of eight for the diner’s Take the Pancake Challenge. Any intrepid eater capable of packing away the entire monument to fluffiness in 60 minutes gets the meal free.
In addition to pancakes, the menu features a familiar spread of hearty entrees and sides served all day long. The cooks hand-batter pieces of chicken-fried steak before glazing them with a layer of country-style gravy, or sear catfish and half-pound burger patties on the grill. For internationally inspired flavors, they can also whisk together huevos rancheros, griddle fresh crêpes, or prepare the german pancake filled with fresh lemon, powdered sugar, and whipped butter served with a side of maple syrup.
Cat City Grill takes its cuisine very seriously. As soon as it opened, the eatery leapt out of the gates with an extensive menu of steak-house eats and seafood, and was named Best Restaurant in 2010 and 2011 by the readers of Fort Worth Weekly. To keep the tradition going, chefs labor over lightly seared peppered ahi tuna and racks of lamb doused in a chimichurri that doubles as edible paint. In addition to steak and seafood, diners can also feast on award-winning chicken-fried steak, broiled lamb rack, and housemade meatloaf. Cat City Grill surrounds eaters with what Fort Worth Weekly characterizes as "pretty earth-toned walls and steel-topped tables" that "create a soothing environment," while its outdoor patio grants guests a breath of fresh air.
Coffee shops and casual cafes are no-brainers when you want a quick snack or a drink. But that wasn't exactly the kind of spot owner Stacey Rumfelt had in mind for McKinley's Fine Bakery and Cafe. She wanted to create a place that also served as a home away from home, where passersby could linger over a hearty sandwich or slice of pie. Completing that homey vibe is an abundance of homemade cookies, shaped and decorated to look like everything from footballs to gingerbread pumpkins to chili peppers.
At McKinley's Fine Bakery and Cafe, breakfast gets the day rolling with oatmeal or scrambled eggs before the noontime crowd shows up later for sandwiches piled with tuna or chicken and orange-honey-mayo. And let's not forget the pastries. With a selection that spans fruit pies, cupcakes, cheesecakes, cookies, and other treats, it's easy to find the right bite for dessert or the right trunkload to serve as dinner.
The scent of cardamom drifting from steaming coffee and the rich aroma of spicy falafel are just some of the smells that would have been prevalent in a 19th-century Turkish coffeehouse. This is the atmosphere that Flying Carpet Cafe cultivates with its own Turkish coffees and teas, hookah lounge with authentic water pipes, and authentic Turkish lunch and dinner menu. In the restored restaurant, housed in a historical building built in 1909, the exotic scents mingle in the air with the aromas of Turkish cuisine—roast chicken breast served with a roasted banana pepper purée, baklava pastries, and muhallebi, a rose-water milk pudding with a cinnamon black currant compote.
After dinner, diners may peruse Flying Carpet Cafe’s more than 500 imported Turkish rugs, which are all available for purchase and all fly.
