The threading technique that Brow Arch uses has some pretty substantial advantages over tweezing or blowtorching. Suitable for any skin and hair type, threading uproots hairs by lassoing them with a cotton thread, a process that doesn't damage the surrounding skin and is less irritable to sensitive skin types than waxing is. Since some clients prefer waxing, though, the studio still uses that method to remove hair from the hands, legs, and full face. Complementing the skin-smoothing services are facials that make use of ingredients such as herbs and fruit.
The Patio's casual menu of from-scratch soups, vertically impressive sandwiches, and fresh-baked goods has earned a place in locals' hearts and has even caught the printed eye of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Sandwiches such as the pastrami Reuben on marbled rye or the chicken salad snuggle with potato chips and a mini muffin, whose small stature masks a desire for world domination. Diners can marvel at the bistro salad's symphony of flavor, with roasted pecans, dried cranberries, and the baritone rumblings of oven-roasted turkey drizzled with citrus vinaigrette. Café cups house hearty ladles of daily soup specials, including the popular creamy chicken and wild rice, and freshly baked cookies, cupcakes, and bars decorated with sinful toppings or adorable icings add a sweet exclamation point to the end of a casual lunch or dinner. Those opting for the catered box lunches can order any of 11 types of sandwiches, with vegetarian options available, for pickup, delivery, or teletransportation within three miles of the café.

Longtime cook Daeva Yearwood Frierson—the eponymous Lady D—got serious about the culinary arts in 2008 when she enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu with a specialty in pastries and baking. Now a diploma-holding dessert chef, Frierson tickles taste buds throughout the metro Atlanta area with her cupcakes and truffles, made from scratch at her home base in Alpharetta. Three sizes of cupcakes sate disparate appetites, ranging from the double-dimensioned jumbo size to the bite-sized mini, perfect as an hors d'oeuvre or a Lilliputian birthday cake. Chocolate truffles fill mouths with sugary filling, whereas strawberries can come dressed in fetching, tuxedo-shaped choco coverings to commemorate formal celebrations.
