The founders of Eclipse Coffee and Tea sought to create a more personal and welcoming space than what they found in franchised coffee shops. So they invite their patrons to curl up on one of their couches with a coffee drink made with beans from Cincinnati roaster Seven Hills Coffee. The baristas craft hot and cold beverages, including signature lattes flavored with milk chocolate, caramel, almond, coconut, and even peanut butter, making for a drink that's sweeter and more convenient than stirring a cappucino with a candy bar. At lunch, patrons enjoy specialty paninis or the create-your-own sandwich option, directing staff to build custom sandwiches with Boar's Head cold cuts. Baked goods from Ashley's Pastry Shop, which has served the area for about 30 years, are made fresh daily for breakfast or dessert.
Saxbys Coffee delights taste buds with coffees brewed from small-batch roasted beans. Green coffee beans journey from their country of origin to Saxbys' roasting facility, where the master roaster employs traditional European techniques to carefully roast each small batch of beans, giving them a light, medium, or dark flavor profile.
In-store baristas spice up cups of java with more than 200 flavorings, such as coconut and toasted marshmallow, that imbue brews with an extra kick. Saxbys Coffee is just as meticulous with the environment as it is with its beverages—all of the shop's lids, java jackets, napkins, and cups are 100% recyclable and 100% welcomed by billy goats attempting to curb their tin-can addictions.

For nearly 30 years, the stain-ousters at Quality Dry Cleaning have relinquished apparel and linens of grime and fabric-marring spots. During cleanings, delicate items such as blouses and scarves receive careful attention, and two-piece suits and neckties regain their fresh, presentable appeal after business-meeting coffee fights. An Ugg boot cleaning spruces up footwear weathered from stomping through snow, slush, and salted sidewalks, and a comforter cleaning expunges regular or down bedding of spills from late-night snacking or the ever-clumsy Sandman.
Beef ‘O’Brady’s menu boasts a beefy bounty of classic American fare prepared hot, steaming, and packed with enough beefy flavors to stampede even the most ravenous appetite.

Burgers come with a choice of potato salad, pineapple coleslaw, chips, fries, broccoli, or mashed potatoes with Guinness gravy.
