Q&A with the Owner

What made you want to work with food? When did you first develop that passion?
It's satisfying to provide customers and the community with good food and a family-friendly environment. Our goal is to be the spot where people want to come, feel welcomed, and leave full. This venue gives us an opportunity to work with our two passions: food and people.

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We make all of our ice cream flavors and sorbets on-site daily. You can also order an ice cream cake in your favorite flavor instead of settling for a mediocre supermarket ice cream cake.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We are a husband-and-wife team that enjoys cooking, working, and seeing people enjoy both the food and the experience here at In The Mood Cafe.

In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
Our menus feature breakfast all day, and we use white-meat chicken breast and certified Angus beef in our panini and burgers. We prepare our chopped salads based on your vegetable and protein choices. We also cut our own french fries and soak them in kosher salt. Our ice cream contains premium ingredients, which will be obviously clear when you taste it. Feel free to sample a couple of flavors before making your final selection so that you can truly experience the difference in our ice cream. Also, we function as a full espresso bar and have a full coffee menu that includes lattes, mochas, cappuccinos, and herbal teas.

Jerusalem Cafe’s chefs combine tzatziki sauce, tahini, and creamy hummus with skewered meats to create classic Mediterranean dishes. They tuck falafel and gyro meat into pita wraps and slowly cook chicken seasoned with a special blend of spices. Smaller bites include spinach pie and veggie-stuffed grape leaves. Inside the eatery, stone accents join framed pictures of Israeli cities along the red walls.

Clients start cooling off immediately upon entering Cafe Yofflers, where the light, comfortable atmosphere joins forces with the chilled treats. The shop specializes in both gelato and frozen yogurt, which clients can customize to their taste at a toppings bar filled with cuts of fresh fruit, bins of flaky cereals, and mounds of candy. The baristas can also help clients cool down at the coffee bar by mixing up iced green tea lattes and iced cappuccinos made with illy coffee or by sitting next to them and fanning them with their hands. Or, they can whip up hot drinks such as hot chocolate or flavored lattes for those who savor steamy sips.

Classic Italian gelato and sorbetto is created from scratch and slow-churned at Bella Fresco Cafe each day, but this natural and fresh approach to food expands past its desserts. Meats rotate slowly on a spit in the style of shawarma, from which the kitchen staff carves succulent slices that make their way into signature pita sandwiches. Burgers, panini, and pita pizzas each pair with wine, which patrons nurse while reclining and enjoying lake views on the back porch. To finish up their meals, they choose a frozen treat and sip an espresso or Kona blend coffee.

Egg bagels, salted bagels, everything bagels, chocolate-chip bagels. Bagels of practically every flavor are made fresh daily at New York Bagel Shoppe. When the rounds of dough are ready to serve, cooks smear them with flavored cream cheese or pile them with lox and toss them to patrons like frisbees. They also build sandwiches and wraps, layering Boar’s Head meats with caramelized onions or grilled vegetables dressed with balsamic vinegar. Each morning, pancakes, omelets, and hot coffee are also freshly made to help diners greet the day.
