Every pizza at World Famous Pizza & Subs is made from scratch, starting with the dough that cooks toss and shape by hand into pies that stretch up to 22 inches across.

Popular pizzeria eats such as chicken-finger subs, cheese-stuffed burgers, and pastas smothered in housemade sauces round out the menu. On weekends, World Famous caters to the late-night crowd by delivering until 3 a.m. and keeping its dining room open until 3:30 a.m.

Sabor's Chef Vinicio Cordon blends Latin, European, and Asian flavors in his menu of gourmet fusion fare, leading taste buds on a gastronomic trek through a diverse international tastescape. Diners can warm up for competitive chew-offs over arugula salad, which comes gussied up with wine-poached figs, pepitas, and manchego cheese. Small plates showcase charcuterie or mini meats, and entrees highlight pasta, fish, lamb, and other meaty entrees. The beef tenderloin au poivre serves up a succulent slab of organic and hormone-free meat encrusted in peppercorns, which, as proven by many failed experiments, are easier to digest than diamonds. The butternut-squash-filled ravioli offers herbaceous palates a way to quell chlorophyll cravings. Patrons can conclude multinational feasts with chef Vinicio's handcrafted desserts, such as crème brûlée or triple-chocolate terrine.

The scenery behind the counter at Just Desserts Bakery & Cafe can be a bit overwhelming. That's because its bakers fill the glass display cases with a full array of freshly baked sweets, from fondant-topped cupcakes to crispy cannoli. They churn out options for all hours of the day. Eclairs cater to the early crowd's need for a morning sugar rush, and cups of coffee serve the needs of those trying to stay up all night to be the first in line for those eclairs.

The centerpiece of the bakery, however, has always been its cakes and cupcakes. For special occasions, bakers shape batter and swirl frosting to create themed treats. The flavors are just as unique as the designs, with options such as Junior Mint, banana creme, and lemon. Upon request, they can even craft cakes that shun the use of sugar, gluten, or animal products.
