Churromania makes a single treat countless ways. The Venezuelan snack shop, a creation of Ariel Acosta-Rubio, Maria Alejandra Bravo, and Miguel Bravo, might dust its crispy churros with sugar, drizzle them with chocolate, or fill them with cream cheese. Orders of Crispy Mania blend sugar and cinnamon, and each Big Mania comes to tables filled with one of eight toppings, including guava and Nutella. Instead of sucking humidity out of the air with a big straw, visitors can stay hydrated with more than a dozen hot and cold beverages.
Frioland keeps the swelter of the Sunshine State at bay with a medley of refreshing and nourishing frozen yogurt flavors and smoothies. Smooth, sweet, and fruity varieties offer something for every palate. Customers can also mix in proteins and other fixings to make their treats more hearty and nutritious without having to sprinkle them with gummy vitamins.
Out front, a glowing sign hangs above the door, reading 'Gigi's Music Cafe.' Inside, you might find live music, karaoke, and even trivia, depending on the day. But one thing remains constant everyday of the week: Gigi's soulful family recipes. A lifetime lover of music, Gigi Brown brought her two passions together under one roof. Gigi's serves classic American dishes with a twist, including fried chicken with a buttermilk waffle, soul rolls—collard green spring rolls—and country turkey meatloaf with sweet potatoes.
At Kavasutra, guests chat with friends over cups of kava, a traditional root extract from the South Pacific celebrated for its soothing, sedative effects. Rather than impairing mental function like alcohol, kava merely relaxes the mind, allowing patrons to leave the worries of everyday life behind for a spell. Surrounded by cozy couches and Polynesian-inspired decor, visitors can lounge in an oasis of calm as they make new friends.
At the end of a long, stressful workday, it's easy to feel indifferent about the foods you eat—just as long as you get something in your stomach. So resorting to a candy bar or a trip to the drive-thru becomes as much of a habit as showering in the morning and howling at the moon at night. But swing by Green Spot Kitchen in the early evening, and servers are dishing out healthy rush-hour snacks: cucumber chips, artichoke fries, and vegan sliders. It's all part of the restaurant's effort to energize visitors with natural, healthy food, which also includes full meals in the forms of salads, sandwiches, and wraps. To complement these good eats, Green Spot concocts wholesome drinks such as fruit smoothies and wheatgrass shots.
