Each handmade bar of soap, jar of culinary rub, and soy candle boasts a generous helping of lavender oil or the raw herb itself, allowing the calming aroma to permeate homes.
Culled from natural ingredients, Berripop's nonfat frozen yogurt is whipped fresh daily and infused with vibrant flavors.

Transparency is the name of the game at Local Foods. From the viewable list of local farms, cheese makers, and bakers the chefs source their food from to the open kitchen, this upscale deli keeps its customers engaged, informed, and well fed. The hard work yields delicious results: “Nearly anything is worth going through to get at that Gulf shrimp and blue crab sandwich,” said the Houston Press. The duck confit sandwich is another hit, and arrived to the table dressed in cranberry preserve and melted brie. Every sandwich comes with a choice of sides such crispy tuscan kale or edamame and bean-sprout-based cabbage slaw. And, of course, there's a heaping helping of eye candy, thanks to the deli's rustic modern aesthetic, which includes bright colored chairs, rough wooden tables, and daily performances from overall-clad mimes.
