Mocha Magic has served up locally roasted coffee and homemade café fare in a sun-bathed modern space since 1994. Behind the café counter, sandwich makers layer sourdough and croissant with honey baked ham, smoked turkey, and fresh produce accompaniments. At breakfast, patrons can jumpstart the day with freshly baked scones and muffins, but are discouraged from jumpstarting a car by pouring espresso drinks directly into the gas tank.

Despite its expansive menu, Papachino’s is known particularly for one item—gyros. Fresh pita bread blankets the succulent combination of beef and lamb meat, but it’s the dollops of fresh tzatziki sauce, made from yogurt cultured in-house, that seal the deal. Other menu favorites span the Mediterranean, from Italian pastas to Greek moussaka. While munching on steak pita sandwiches or braiding strands of pasta marinara, customers can enjoy the eatery’s eclectic art collection, including a large painted mural of a Greek village as well as individual works by local artists. Every weekend, a live musician stops by and croons customers out of their seats and onto a makeshift dance floor with acoustic covers of hit songs.

Mortadella, dry salami, and danish ham all loaf in between a choice of bready borders, including wheat rolls, multigrain, or sourdough bread. After polishing off handheld morsels, tables of two can divine the future by reading the fizzy remnants of two medium sodas.
Although best known for their oversized, made-to-order sandwiches, Togo's daily menu showcases a smorgasbord of salads, soups, and wraps.

Communal carnivores seek out Togo's catering menu to fuel baby showers, bat mitzvahs, or impromptu boxcar rallies with a variety of boxed lunches and customized sandwich trays. Choose from palate-pleasing platters such as a regular tray layered with 16 half subs ($45), a southwestern seven-layer dip ($40), or one 8-foot sandwich (priced to order) sized to feed a small party or one party-crashing grizzly bear.
