Meats, cheeses, fruits, and veggies line the counters and display cases at DaVinci Gourmet Market, where chefs draw upon a palette of fresh ingredients to compose take-home entrees and catered meals each day. To-go containers nearly overflow with wild-rice salad or crab cakes, and entrees of grilled salmon or roasted chicken make for ephemeral table centerpieces. The sun rises over omelets and traditional two-egg breakfasts, and the lunch menu’s specialty paninis invoke the Leaning Tower of Pisa with their stacked toppings and unstable groundwork of toasted ciabatta bread.

To Dan Kim, a red mango is something truly special. The fruit only becomes that color for a very brief time, when it's most ripe, most delicious, and most nutritious. This became an allegory for Dan, a frozen yogurt enthusiast, who was conceptualizing his first yogurt shop. He opened the first location in 2007, vowing to use all-natural ingredients that, like the red mango, are both tasty and healthy. His commitment to conscientious snacking certainly caught on, as the brand has since expanded to more than 200 locations throughout North and South America. In 2011, Red Mango took top honors for frozen yogurt shops and for healthy options in a Zagat poll.

In addition to being all-natural, Red Mango's award-winning yogurt satisfies a range of diets by being gluten-free, kosher, and low-fat or non-fat. Each of the nearly 50 flavors, which range from peanut butter to pomegranate, contains calcium, protein, and immune-boosting probiotics. Depending on the location, people can serve themselves or order from the full-service counter as they concoct sundaes crowned with anything from fresh fruit to peanut butter cups. The menu includes more than just fro-yo sundaes, however?it also features yogurt parfaits, Skinny Sorbettos, and fruit or boba smoothies. New greek yogurt varieties also delight palates with bulked up units of protein and calcium. In addition to developing secret handshakes with their favorite yogurt taps, regular visitors can sign up for the Club Mango rewards program to receive special offers and discounts.

South Bay Market seamlessly blends freshly made sandwiches, salads, and prepared foods with the ambiance and ingredients of an upscale eatery. The counter houses prepared entrees such as pasta salads, Dr Pepper–coated ribs, and panko-crusted chicken cutlets. Behind the counter, a chef prepares custom salads by peppering greens with walnuts, mushrooms, avocado, or bacon and nestles turkey, roast beef, and grilled eggplant into sandwiches or wraps. While their food is being prepared, customers can browse a selection of drinks including juice or soda and snacks such as premier pretzels, north fork chips, or Tate's chocolate chip cookies before heading over to café tables to eat and play travel Twister.
