Cravings Cafe percolates flavorful, full-bodied coffee with 100% Arabica beans secured from a local roaster to sip with gourmet sandwiches and fresh soups. Under the gaze of original artwork, baristas skillfully concoct foamy cappuccinos or decadent mexican hot chocolates and tastefully garnish each cup with a monster-truck Micro Machine ($2–$4). Small bowls of soup du jour ($2.99) tempt palates with bursts of earthy, jour flavor, and turkey sandwiches pop with basil- and parmesan-infused pesto ($5.99). On Thursday evenings, diners can munch falafel wraps ($5.99) as they scrutinize the prowess of amateur entertainers who rendezvous at the café's open-mic night, where host Ramon Rivas invites patrons to read poetry, sing songs, and lip-synch to a laugh track.
Gray House Pies gorges pastry-seeking pilgrims with all-natural gooey, crusty goodness.

Gray House also packs 27 pub pies—including Dahl pie, an Indian blend of lentils, rice, and curry spices; meatloaf and gravy pie; and spaghetti and meatballs pie ($3.75)—giving hungry hot-rodders a selection of savory spinners to fill their wheel wells.
