The Cupcake Shoppe passes on cake mixes in favor of all-natural ingredients, making cupcakes from scratch daily and hand-decorating each so the presentation matches the taste. The shop doles out its creations individually, or by the half- or full-dozen, and offers to top off bites with different icings, such as cream cheese and caramel whip. For special occasions, customers can have the shop concoct personalized batches, complete with treat boxes and decorative wrappers.

The kitchen staff at Giuseppe's Cafe draws on the age-old culinary traditions of southern Italy using family recipes. The tasty results take form in al dente pastas, flaky fish, and succulent meats. In addition to the classics, nine signature foccacia flatbreads are smothered in everything from sausages to shrimp.
But Italian cuisine isn't the bistro's only specialty. American staples such as fish and chips and baby-back ribs are delivered to diners, who can enjoy an outdoor patio in warmer months. To foster a sense of community, this setting also hosts live entertainment at Sunday pig roasts.
Nancy Pursh set aside a 20-year career as an administrative assistant to pursue her life’s passion by operating a Victorian-style tearoom. Within a stately Springdale home, she hosts refined afternoon-tea services, pouring gently steeped cupfuls of loose tea that she personally selects from local merchants. Now joined by chef Brian Boring, she pairs teas with a seasonal selection of housemade sandwiches and baked goods. Relying on handpicked fruits and herbs from the gardens, Brian creates refreshing finger foods to accompany tea, such as almond and coconut macaroons or cinnamon-pear scones. Although the tearoom’s china saucers and lace tablecloths evoke the elegant tearooms of an earlier era, Nancy’s goal was simply to create “a cozy, warm, welcoming house where friends could sit and chat, relaxed and unrushed.” :m]]
