Though inspired by the northern California cafés of the early 1980s, Espresso Royale fits right in with Michigan’s modern coffee drinkers—in 2014 readers of The Michigan Daily voted it Best Coffee Shop for the fifth year in a row. Their coffees include a house blend developed in 1987, which has since been joined by a seasonally appropriate autumn spice blend and a southern Italian-style espresso called Napoli. Royale's customers also clamor to the counter for favorites such as raspberry mochas, mint hot chocolates, and ginger dragon, a tea layered with fresh lemon and steeped ginger root that can be served iced or heated by a dragon named Ginger.
There are two ways to order a sandwich at The Simple Sandwich—either dictate your choice of bread, meats, and toppings to a cheerful counter staffer, or punch in an order on the handy touchscreen. Upon receiving orders, the eatery's chefs spring into action, assembling locally sourced ingredients into sandwiches lauded by Minneapolis City Pages as having "everything right: soft bread [and] the perfect amount of mustard." They layer wheat, sourdough, and rye with slices of ham, pastrami, and turkey before adding on dabs of pesto mayo and sprinkles of sprouts and jalapeños. When not whipping up sandwiches, the chefs extend their culinary expertise to salads, inviting guests to customize their salads by choosing toppings, picking out a dressing, and nicknaming each of the croutons. They pair sandwiches, wraps, and salads with sides of crunchy kettle chips and freshly baked cookies.

Ann Yin looks back on her time in China fondly, according to an interview with Heavy Table. She and husband Yulin immersed themselves in the local culture, visiting the market each morning to grab that day’s groceries and nurture relationships with the local vendors. Eventually, just the sight of Ann would set merchants to packaging up her usual order or slicing a special cut of meat. When Ann and Yulin returned to the States, they wanted to re-create the connection to food and provide that they’d encountered in China, and Local D’Lish was born. Though laid out like a grocery store or a rabbit’s underground pantry, the shop exudes the atmosphere of a farmers' market with small quantities of fresh produce, meat, dairy, and grocery products from 200 organic farmers and vendors in Minnesota and the Midwest. Its cooking instructors even teach patrons how to assemble the ingredients at classes that change with the season.
When Doug and Jane Oyen founded C. McGee's in 1987, their goal was "to be the Cheers of the deli business." Given their restaurant's friendly atmosphere, dependably tasty food, and secret tunnel to Boston, it's clear that the Oyens achieved their dream. Chefs at C. McGee’s build sandwiches and soups from scratch, creating meaty works of art such as the cheddar-laden avocado turkey and the Cowboy, stuffed with hot horseradish and medium-rare roast beef. Box lunches pair sandwiches with sides, such as clam chowder and cream of broccoli soups, and breakfast burritos bundle morning meals.
