Inside an historic home built in 1850, cooks at The Cafe 51 build sandwiches on grilled, housemade breads and stir pots of soup. Patrons may sip mugs of coffee or dig into crisp salads crowned with grilled Alaskan salmon while seated at vintage-style tables and chairs.
Established in 1969, chefs at the Greek's Pizzeria chain toss pizzas from house-made dough. The classic pies are complemented by pizza shells, also known as calzones, as well as sub sandwiches, pastas, and appetizers. The menu's dishes are filled with fresh ingredients and Greek's signature products, including the eatery's salad dressing, garlic butter, and italian sauce. For dessert, diners can drizzle icing over the pizzeria's cinnamon twists.
Inside Pam's Tea Shoppe, a glass case brims with jars of more than 60 kinds of tea. New tea accessories, including handcrafted mugs and mesh infusers, fill shelves next to a table set with vintage teapots, cups, and saucers.

Hearthstone Coffee House & Pub aims to enrich its community with its café drinks, food, and craft beers and by giving 10 cents of each beverage sold to a different local charity every month. The day begins with baristas pulling precise shots of espresso and steaming pitchers of milk, which accentuate breakfast sandwiches and fresh-baked morsels of coffeecake or scones. Later on, lunch-goers tear into caprese-salad sandwiches and after-work visitors pair draft beers with flatbread pizzas, soups and salads, or artisan sandwiches. Live music serenades the café Thursday–Saturday, with tunes from celtic musicians, singer-songwriters, and open-mic artists.
Hearthstone makes good on its name with a working stone fireplace topped by a dark wooden mantel that draws attention from diners throughout the interior. Low leather armchairs form a cozy circle around its comforting presence, and its firelight is augmented by a chandelier hanging overhead. Framed art punctuates the tranquil tan walls, which surround scattered clusters of tables and standalone chairs that feel at home in their solitude. At the bar, painted flames crown the menu boards and a rustic chandelier resembling twisted antlers stretches over patrons' heads.
After graduating from England's Southampton University, Jacqueline Bols began her culinary career in the French and Italian rivieras, serving her creations on private yachts in Cannes, Monaco, and Saint-Tropez. Later, she catered American events, earning the Charles Heidsieck Award for Culinary Excellence and serving her feasts to such famed diners as Oprah Winfrey, Sean Connery, Tommy Hilfiger, and Kevin Costner.
In 2001, Jacqueline opened Jacquie’s Café & Gourmet Catering, drawing on modern French cuisine and local and organic ingredients to craft in-house breakfasts and lunches as well as catered meals. In quarters ornamented with photographs and oil paintings, guests can dine on handcrafted yogurt parfaits, homemade soups, or smoked turkey, brie, and apple sandwiches. The catering arm of the outfit fashions hors d'oeuvres, à la carte items, and boxed lunches for private events, as well as corporate breakfast and lunch dishes, which distract employees from the daily grind of prank faxing competitor companies.
