Coffee & Treats in Rock Creek


Select Local Merchants

While Butterfly Kisses Baking's staff avidly serves its local customers by decorating cakes, cupcakes, and cookies, the people they most proudly cater to are military troops. The shop allocates 20% of its profits to providing care packages for servicemen and women abroad. They build those funds by enticing customers with the sweetness packed into their various treats, which include peppermint-bark cupcakes, lemon sugar cookies, and cake pops themed after the flavors of cereal, cookies, and candy bars. Bakers are on hand to help clients create custom desserts including themed cakes that might light up a child’s face on his birthday or fondant scenes so real you’d consider buying a time share there.

The first IHOP—the dream of founders Al and Jerry Lapin—opened in 1958 in Toluca Lake, California, and was originally dubbed the International House of Pancakes. Since then, rapid expansion has led to myriad milestones across the company's colorful history, from introducing its modern IHOP acronym in 1973 to its 1,000th restaurant opening in Layton, Utah, in 2001. Today, the company stands strong with around 1,500 locations across North and Central America, each one an enthusiastic dispenser of pancakes, french toast, and tables constructed entirely out of bacon. Though IHOP is known as a bastion of breakfast, it also stays open during the day and into the evening, delivering lunch and dinner as well.

The resident butchers at Curt's Famous Meats serve up award-winning steaks, burgers, and homemade sausage in a 64-year-old, full-service butcher shop and deli. Meat mavens skillfully slice up choice rib-eye steaks ($13.99/lb.), Kansas City strips ($13.99/lb.), and T-bones ($12.99/lb.) that are juicier than water-cooler gossip about fresh peaches. Groupon holders can also sample sliced slab back bacon ($5.99/lb.) or stack sesame buns with 8-ounce filet burgers ($5 each). Curt's Famous Meats' enthusiastic, predominantly female staff welcomes customers' questions about how to choose the best cut, how to achieve a perfect medium rare, or how to gently demote baked potatoes to side dishes.
