Little David's Sub Shop recreates the homey, nostalgic feel of a Brooklyn or Philly delicatessen with handmade subs inspired by classic American street fare. Reuben sandwiches come loaded with sauerkraut and hot pastrami, and cold subs feature dry Italian salami, ham, and provolone. Regional options include specialty eats such as the Chicago combo with Italian beef and giardiniera, and the Philly sub with roast beef and peppers. A '50s-style theme sends visitors back in time, with vintage record sleeves and magazines covering the walls, and a soundtrack of early rock 'n' roll, doo-wop, and civil defense sirens piped over the speakers.
Before opening up shop in 2011, self-taught baker Maricel spent 10 years honing her skills and taste testing her creations with her husband and three daughters. These days, she continues using natural and organic ingredients to whip up cupcakes, mini cupcakes, and tartlets entirely from scratch. The core of her tartlet arsenal remains sweet potato, peach cobbler, and pecan, but her cupcakes and mini cupcakes constantly evolve with innovative flavors such as a maple cupcake topped with bacon pieces and a coconut cupcake slathered with cream cheese frosting. Along with individual and by the dozen purchases, Maricel dispenses her mini cupcakes in bouquets and atop rental towers, which fit 50–60 treats. Every Tuesday through Saturday, she and her dedicated staffers are available to take orders and walk customers through the process of shrinking cakes with repeated dryer sessions.

Built in 1925, the Temple Theatre first served as a vaudeville venue, later becoming a host for road shows, burlesque, and movies. However, the theatre closed in 1965, and would be subjected to disrepair, vandalism, and skeleton xylophone recitals for more than 15 years. A 1981 restoration project returned the theatre to its former glory. Today, seated under the gilded chandelier and wooden trim, theatergoers lose themselves in the thoughtful dramas enacted upon the stage.
