To make a YO! Blast—one of Let's Yo! Yogurt's newer creations—customers fill their cup about 2/3 full of frozen yogurt in any combination of flavors, then add toppings. Next, a staff member "blasts" it to create a sweet treat that's a bit chunkier than a smoothie and smoother than crushing s'mores with a fork. This is just one of the dessert offerings at Let's Yo! Yogurt, where guests choose from 70 frozen-yogurt flavors and 100 toppings to create their own signature treat. If the relative healthfulness of yogurt compared to ice cream isn't enough, non- and lowfat flavors, as well as no-sugar-added and gluten-free varieties, give customers health-conscious options. The rank of toppings includes fruit, candy, and 16 different cereals. As customers spoon up their snacks in the bright-green mod space, they can borrow in-house iPads to play games or check their email.

A set of French glass doors marks the entrance to Cross Mill Diner, though, when it comes to European culinary traditions, the diner’s cooks bypass France for Italy and Greece. The diner’s extensive eight-page menu includes housemade Greek-style spinach pies and shrimp parmesan, as well as an Eastern-influenced Thai cashew wrap with grilled chicken and ginger sesame dressing. American staples round out the menu, from char-grilled burgers topped with pork rolls to from-scratch buttermilk pancakes served as part of an all-day breakfast. Feasts unfold inside the BYOB eatery’s cozy dining area, where guests are surrounded by posters of waterwheels from around the world.

OMG MYO Pizza has a constant theme: fun. It starts with their pie-making method. They invite customers to pick all the toppings for their pizzas and decorate the pies themselves. Then, the cooks place them in the oven. Customers can take advantage of the other part of OMG MYO Pizza's fun theme: a party room with 20 stations in an XBox video game lounge.

What started as a simple café is today an all-encompassing food emporium and market, all under the Juana Banana moniker. Within the crisp golden crust of the café’s classic empanadas, the chef seals in beef, potatoes, or spinach, forming just one of the traditional Colombian-inspired choices on the versatile eatery’s café menu. Whether guests stop in for lunch or to browse through Juana’s produce section, panini sandwiches make a popular treat with their fresh-baked bread and warm ham, chorizo, roasted pork, or vegetable fillings. As guests sip on Colombian coffee, they may catch notes of caramel and ripe berries, making the blend a complementary companion for the bakery’s sweet pandebonos—bread made with cheese and cassava starch. Customers may enjoy their meals at either table or lounge seating, using the free wireless Internet access to work or to pull up slideshows of palm trees to complete the tropical ambiance. Catering is also available to help customers bring Juana’s take on South American cuisine home.
