In a petite 56-seat eatery, the chefs at Café St. Tropez cull fresh ingredients to craft the classic French sandwiches, pastries, and eats that populate the menu. Early risers can replace lingering memories of wailing alarm clocks with the sensations of a Very Berry crepe, a warm amalgamation of seasonal berries and mascarpone sprinkled with vanilla-infused sugar. In the St. Tropez caprese, tomatoes and avocado huddle next to fresh mozzarella as sourdough or wheat toast or a croissant soaks up garlic-infused olive oil like a teddy bear soaks up the sleep-mumbled poetry of children.
Family owned and operated since 1977, the expert instructors at Adamson's Karate Studios help students from preschool to adulthood build discipline, confidence, and athleticism using the art of karate. At eight locations, instructors guide students through a series of kicks and punches as they improve their fitness, confidence, discipline, and ability to chop stacks of boring homework in half.
Main St.'s menu items are carefully composed from organic, locally sourced, and natural ingredients and count among their assembly vegan and vegetarian options. Start with fried goat cheese ($7) or celery-root chips ($7), then range like the mighty buffalo onto central fare such as the bison stromboli sandwich with pickles, marinara, and provolone ($6.95). Satisfy an airborne palate with a fancy flight of pan-roasted duck breast with cherry-balsamic reduction ($17), set taste buds a-sail on a skiff of blackened salmon with pineapple pico de gallo ($15), or embrace your stomach's animal-friendly side with a leafy grilled-romaine salad with mustard-parmesan crust ($10). Irrigate a parched gullet with an organic soda (orange, grape, cola, and root beer, $2.25), or fill each of your scientifically abominable four stomachs with French-press organic-coffee service for four ($8), ground fresh upon ordering.
If ever you wanted to eat your way across the globe, Nadia's Bistro would be a good place to start. Here, diners can check off Indonesia, Thailand, and parts of the Mediterranean all in one sitting, and all without having to learn language translations for "mmm." Chef Tom prepares dishes from many cultures using both traditional and contemporary techniques. There's the Indonesian specialty gado-gado, for instance, which contains a jumble of fresh veggies, tofu, boiled eggs, and potatoes. Pastas, meanwhile, reign supreme over the Mediterranean portion of the menu, and stir-fries represent Thailand with such specialties as pad pong ka ree–a seafood-based dish loaded with calamari, scallops, and shrimp.
Alongside a café and wine bar, a bed and breakfast, and a wholesale producer, a bakery might be eclipsed. But it isn't the case for Scholars Inn Bakehouse, one of the myriad parcels of Scholars Inn. The bakery produces daily fresh-baked breads made entirely from scratch and formed by hand, earning praise from several publications, including a guest spot on the cover of Modern Baking magazine. Fragrant breads hewn from all-natural ingredients emerge from European stone-hearth ovens, ready to complement the café menu, sit alongside granolas and bagels, or fill in as backup footballs.
Inside Brunchies, servers carry plates of traditional American diner food, though many were prepared with health in mind. In keeping with the restaurant's name, chefs prepare breakfast and lunch dishes throughout the day. Their signature creations range from a skillet stuffed with cheddar, hash browns, and sausage topped with egg to french toast coated in corn flakes and topped with fruit. They also craft plates of buttermilk pancakes and egg-white omelets, and they stack sandwiches with steak, breaded pork tenderloin, or health-focused ingredients such as grilled chicken and avocado.
