Jungle Java was designed to create a space where parents could enjoy a good cup of coffee while watching their children play in a safe and soft environment where tykes traipse through a well-padded multilevel maze of forest huts and treehouses. Toddlers can take time away from the fray in a separate safari area equipped with soft tunnels, slides, and age-appropriate cryptograms. As children romp, parents plunk themselves in the soft folds of a leather couch or power through some work on the free WiFi network. Jungle Java's caf? carries a menu of coffee drinks, smoothies, and snacks that include all-beef hot dogs and turkey and avocado sandwiches on eight-grain bread.
After more than a quarter-century of layering sandwiches, whipping up fresh salads, and ladling out bowls of piping-hot soups, Vineyards Deli Basket has the delicatessen business down to a science. The extensive menu lists more than 100 entries, broken down into sections for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as specialized options for healthy choices and Jewish catering. There are traditional deli standbys, such as a BLT or turkey reuben, as well as less traditional selections, such as barbecue wings or the jumbo Vienna hot dog, which is the size of a city bus.
Patrons' extremities are the shining stars inside Kris Tall f/x Make Up & Nail Studio, where a fleet of nail technicians covers fingernails and toenails with long-lasting Shellac polish and acrylics. They also festoon keratin sheets with decorative polka dots or zebra stripes. Nails share a bit of the spotlight with faces when beauty pros gives mugs a makeover fit for a wedding day or a Dolly Parton look-alike contest.
Swirls Cafe elates taste buds with a cavalcade of cupcakes crafted fresh daily in a panoply of inventive flavors. Customers can wrangle a dozen cupcakes from the 12–15 different varieties in each day’s rotation, such as strawberry cheesecake, lemon cake blooming with blueberries, and german-chocolate cupcake with coconut-pecan frosting. The apple-pie-spice cupcake draws inspiration from its sister dessert, apple pie, and the classic red velvet sports a tiara of silky cream cheese bejeweled with pecans, coconut, or cinnamon. Alternately, party planners can splendorize the skyline of any birthday, baby shower, or mime-school graduation with a cupcake tower, which assembles 18 sugary girders into a pinnacle of pastry architecture adorned with custom decorations
Omelette & Waffle Café’s menu solves breakfast conundrums with a day-breaking spread of customizable omelets and airy belgian waffles. Wrapped in a warm, eggy blanket lined with american cheese, much like Betsy Ross’s original flag prototype, the Farmer's omelet mixes up a patchwork of ham, onion, mushrooms, and green peppers with crispy hash browns ($6.59). City folk find rural respite in the Country omelet’s savory swiss-laced folds, which are studded with sausage, onions, spinach, mushrooms, and green peppers ($6.59). Treat bored taste buds to the excitement of a tailor-made creation by designing your own omelet ($4.25) filled with standard fare, such as broccoli, asparagus, or spinach ($0.49 each), or stuffed with premium toppings, including gyro meat, feta cheese, turkey sausage, or corned beef ($0.85 each). For a sweeter sun salutation, sink your fork into the crisp, buttery panes of a belgian waffle topped with nuts, fresh fruit, or hand-churned yogic energy ($4.99). The café also stocks edibles for lunchers, including BLTs ($4.50), grilled-cheese sandwiches ($3.50), and homemade chili ($2.99).
