Coffee Squared's Cuvee-trained baristas steam and beautify specialty drinks with skill as they multitask to craft pastries and sandwiches. Rich coffee ($1.75–$2.25) widens the drooping eyelids of patrons as steam billows up from piping-hot cups of organic Mighty Leaf tea ($2.05–$2.45) plucked from sustainable farms. Iced white mochas ($3.95–$4.25) send energizing chills down spines as masterfully brewed espresso and sweet cocoa tango down throat chutes. Guests can feel free to sink into sumptuous leather club chairs to work remotely or look up their elvish pseudonym on Coffee Squared's free WiFi network while gobbling up sandwiches and pastries ($1.75–$5) from a rotating menu. The list of hunger quenchers showcases such treats as cranberry blondies and kolacky—fruit poised in buttery dough rounds. Red brick peeks out from behind strategically destroyed drywall in the cozy cafe, creating an artistic canvas on which contemporary paintings hang and at which guests can look while daydreaming or free associating about masonry, freemasonry, the Founding Fathers, and mothers that have a tendency to get lost.
A marriage of former teacher Tiffany Key's passion for cooking and her creative inclinations, Haute Mama Dessert Company crafts sweet confections inside a colorful shop layered in hot pink and leopard print. Key’s eye for color informs Haute Mama’s decadent cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and other sugary morsels, which come in a rainbow of rotating flavors that draw on the chef’s southern culinary upbringing. Each batch of treats, including gluten-free and vegan goods, comes wrapped in Haute Mama's distinct pink, brown, and leopard packaging. Bright ribbons fall across the shop’s precisely designed corporate baskets, while artfully arranged spreads cater to larger events such as banquets, birthdays, or tea parties celebrating a stuffed animal’s newest litter.
Those seeking a break from their busy day routinely pop into Frogg Coffee Bar & Creperie, where they indulge in a variety of handcrafted coffees, crepes, baked goods, and sandwiches that are prepared by a talented team of baristas and chefs. The menu showcases a selection of sweet and savory crepes, stuffed with ingredients like strawberries and Nutella or a scrambled omelette, but also features sandwiches, piping hot soups, and a few wild cards like a variety of pastries. And, of course, there are the specialty coffee drinks, each one made special by the addition of the baristas' famous latte art designs.
SmoothieZone mixes a fruity, frosty menu of smoothies using fresh juices, frozen yogurt, and powerful shots of vitamins and nutrients. Fruit smoothies such as the blueberry-banana cooler ($3.65–$5.85) inundate sippers with 18 grams of whey protein, and fresh-squeezed juices such as the organic carrot juice ($2.95–$4.95) spare teeth days of tedious crunching. A kids’ menu sneaks protein into diminutive bellies with treats such as the Chunky Monkey, a protein smoothie with peanut butter, milk, chocolate, and bananas ($4.35). Shots of vitamins and nutrients such as B-12 ($0.99) and muscle building creatine and glutamine ($1.49 each) bolster beverages and imbue drinkers with the energy open the doors at a grocery store without touching them. Patrons can also enjoy waffle cones or cups filled with vanilla, chocolate, or swirled fat-free frozen yogurt ($2.95–$3.95).
At Starwood Cafe, 6:30 in the morning might as well be time for dessert. The breakfast menu here doesn't shy away from sweet specialty dishes, including homemade french crepes stuffed with bananas and Nutella or pancakes with Oreo crumbles blended into the batter. But this family-owned restaurant does more than just churn out inventive sweets. The staffers also tip their collective hats to the classics. They serve biscuits with sausage gravy, farm-fresh eggs with grits, and skillets full of hash browns and toppings.
Once the day segues into lunchtime, the cafe composes sandwiches and wraps alongside gourmet salads. Grilled teriyaki-salmon stir-fry speaks to the kitchen's versatility, while tuna melts and deep-fried Atari games show the cooks' passion for nostalgia. And some entrees, such as the chicken-fried steak, are just as delicious in the afternoon as they are at sunrise. Regardless of what you order, almost everything that makes its way from the kitchen to the dining table abides by Starwood's strict philosophy, which prizes freshness and made-from-scratch quality above all else.
