Le Peep's focus on breakfast and lunch stems from a decision made more than 40 years ago, when Buddy and Rhoda Waldman opened The Village Pantry in Aspen, Colorado, and—not wanting to miss a half day of skiing—would close the kitchen each day before noon. The duo would continue to tinker with their concept, stare at it through a novelty-sized microscope, and change its name before it eventually migrated to Texas.

Nowadays, the kitchen staff perpetuates the breakfast-crafting tradition by offering omelets, eggs benedict, skillets, and build-your-own pancake options that use ingredients such as walnuts, bacon, pineapple, and chocolate chips. Traditional dishes are augmented with unique twists, such as the Gooey Buns, english muffins broiled with brown sugar, cinnamon, and almonds and served with a signature side of Mom's Sassy Apples. During midday hours, a variety of salads, burgers, and sandwiches parades out of the kitchen accompanied by smoothies, juices, or Mother Parkers coffee. Le Peep's catering service delivers breakfast and lunch fare to homes, events, or filibustered neighborhood-watch meetings.

Java Me Up

Pungent aromas fill the air at Java Me Up, where customers filter in for the specialty coffee drinks and gourmet sandwiches. The s’mores latte and white chocolate mocha are just two of 40 flavors available for fans of sweet caffeinated sips, while gourmet drip coffees showcase the rich profiles of beans gathered anywhere from Hawaii, to Ethiopia, to Juan Valdez's pantry. Meanwhile, croissants make a soft and buttery base for hickory smoked turkey sandwiches, and snacks such as biscotti, warm brownies, and organic salads round out the menu of fresh and light café fare.

Light streams in through the floor-to-ceiling windows at the front of Glazed Doughnuts & Cafe, glinting off cushy high-backed chairs and sleek wooden tables before mingling with the crystals in the ornate chandelier. Before taking a seat or levitating next to the bookshelf, customers can peruse the mouth-watering menu, selecting treats including tantalizingly fresh scratch-made doughnuts, croissants, and muffins, carefully stacked sandwiches, and draughts of energy-boosting coffee.

Crooked Tree Coffeehouse exists in a refinished old house decorated with colorful vintage charm, and it serves coffee creations, teas, and small bites. Sit on a comfortable couch and bathe in the warm waters of free WiFi as you enjoy a specialty drink, such as a candy apple cream, a hot apple-cider drink splashed with caramel and donned with a whipped cream top hat ($2.69–$3.15). The coffeehouse's secluded tree-lined patio provides enough respite from low-flying planes to order a sandwich, such as chicken salad on a croissant or vegetarian with hummus ($4.95, or $5.97 with a side of potato salad, chips, or fruit). A large mango iced tea ($2.04) or small fruit smoothie ($3.06) makes food easily glide down gullets like a child going down a slide coated in butter. The deli also offers vegan baked goods, such as cookies ($1.60) and cinnamon rolls ($3.10).

Beams of sunlight filter in through the lush vegetation that surrounds Garden Cafe’s outdoor patio and garden. Such a setting seems almost designed to inspire poetry, and it’s hardly a coincidence that the café hosts a regular poetry dinner that pairs a five-course meal with open-mic poetry readings.

If poetry isn’t your thing, Garden Cafe still has you covered with an all-day breakfast and lunch served out on the patio. Popular menu items include house salads, sandwiches, and omelets made with organic and free-range eggs. Though the options are varied, the chefs don’t skimp on any of them. One case in point is the french toast, which is covered in real, organic Vermont syrup and topped with a miniature beret.
