Hailing from an Italian clan that expressed adoration via edibles, Bellacelli Cupcakery's head baker whips together fresh local eggs, fruits, and dairy products to create desserts that land on doorsteps in recyclable packaging. Lollicakes emulate the makeup of their cupcake cousins, flaunting bite-size morsels speared on a stick to facilitate jabbing competitors at community bake sales. Peanut-butter filling bursts from the heart of Ted dark-chocolate lollicakes, topped with semisweet chocolate buttercream. Emilia confections mimic citrusy summer sips by marrying strawberry buttercream with lemon cake and candy, and white-russian fixings spike the adult-oriented Thad lollicakes, which are perfect for celebrating 21st birthdays or throwing at the ghosts of prohibition enforcers.
Serving direct-trade beans from Seattle's Kuma Coffee microroasters, Starling fuels bustling bodies with the energy needed to tackle mornings and beyond. Traditional brewed coffee ($1.25–$2.00) awakens senses with a no-frills wallop, and the rich whip of a café mocha melds milk, espresso, and actual whips ($2.85–$3.60). Add yummy flavor shots ($0.50 each) such as toasted marshmallow, caramel, and blueberry to brews, or summon the spritely mouth-tickle of an italian soda ($2.65–$3.75). Starling Coffee also boasts an array of teas ($1.50–$2.25) and smoothies ($3.75–$4.30) that coat throat canals with viscous fruit serums. When inner rumbles beckon, pair drinks with breakfast sandwiches ($1.95–$3.95), grilled turkey sandwiches ($4), or bagels ($2.95) smothered in ham, cheese, and East Coast regrets.
Third-pound burgers of char-grilled ground chuck. Flame-kissed steaks accompanied with Yukon gold mashed potatoes. Slow-cooked, hand-pulled pork slathered with homemade barbecue sauce. The menus at Maddox Grill and Bar read like the great American cookbook. For a bit of regional variation the chefs prepare everything from Dungeness crab cakes to spicy, Cajun-style gumbo. All of this warm, homespun cooking complements the dining room's cozy ambiance. Exposed ceiling beams and polished wooden tables gleam in the light of the red-domed pendant lamps that dangle overhead. To keep patrons warm on the inside, the bartenders pour tipples of single-malt scotch or amber-hued tequila and diligently mix specialty cocktails using the bar's private hadron collider.
A globally recognized sweet shop, Beard Papa's converts traditional desserts into decadent, fresh-baked, hand-labored lovables. Their all-natural cream puffs exhibit a complex, crispy outer choux pastry packed with mouth-melting, fluffy whipped-cream custard derived from imported vanilla beans and hours of diligent daydreaming. Beard Papa's doughsmiths shun preservatives in favor of all-natural and organic ingredients, which, like library books, should be devoured immediately for optimal freshness. The original vanilla recipe was crafted in Osaka, Japan before migrating across oceans, continents, and dinner menus to sate sweet teeth worldwide.
