The brainchild of Benny and Sandy Fontana, Olives Italian Market evokes an Old World corner market with dishes hewn from simple family recipes and hard-to-find Italian imported edibles. Panini makers layer imported Italian meats and cheeses atop fresh, rustic breads baked in-house to forge sandwiches, and creamy house-made gelato cools tongues steamy from java brewed from house-roasted coffee beans. The family-run shop also stocks a market of Italian ingredients, including extra-virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegars, capers, pasta, and anchovies that patrons can use to create mouthwatering meals that inspire jealousy in cans of Chef Boyardee.:m]]
With two lounge areas, a full espresso bar, and a wide array of hearty sandwiches, Crosswalk Coffeehouse offers patrons a friendly, cozy space to delicately nibble on noshables and knock back cups of joe. Crosswalk Coffeehouse's menu brims with sandwiches such as the FOURmage grilled cheese ($6.99), oozing with smoked gouda, cheddar, swiss, and gorgonzola, and breakfast options such as an egg and bacon sourdough sandwich ($3.99). Grab an espresso to keep fingers company when not tapping into the free WiFi, or keep hands warm during the winter by fashioning delicious mittens out of Crosswalk's homemade ciabatta and pumpkin bread. Throughout the day, patrons can pass the time with fresh-baked pastries or $2 microbrews, and then get to know their newly acquired treat over a intimate conversation in Crosswalk's sociable lounge.

Peering out onto Main Plaza between the window panes of their 1925 shopfront, New Braunfels Coffee's baristas tempt passing noses with fragrant Lavazza espresso and baked-from-scratch French pastries. Seven types of salads nest toppings of grilled chicken, feta cheese, and cranberries, and hot deli sandwiches couple with cups of daily soup on tabletops scattered across the café's sunny tiled floor. While the building houses historic charms, the amenities are decidedly modern—free WiFi allows midsip customers to monitor global goings-on or challenge former PE instructors to games of online poker.
On The Grind may be a convenient, unassuming drive-thru, but its coffee is much more complex. Brewed by Third Coast, the shop's customized blend consists of three beans—the mild Norandino from Peru, the smooth Sidama from Ethiopia, and the full-bodied Sumatra from Indonesia. These contrasting flavors make for a dynamic beverage that can be served hot, iced, or blended with indulgent sweets such as coconut, salty caramel, and chocolate macadamia.
Housed in a combined café and chiropractic office inside the historic Vivroux Hardware building, Chiro Java injects visitors with the energy to almost massage their own backs after eating an array of American- and Mexican-inspired breakfast and lunch dishes. The kitchen staff crafts chicken salad from a family recipe and uses only nitrite-free lunchmeats, both of which they sandwich between high-fiber whole-wheat bread baked in-house. At the full-service coffee and espresso bar, baristas serve up organic frappés, allergen-free desserts, and organic, fair-trade coffee roasted fresh each day. Facilitating a sense of calm, the café keeps its lighting low, and surrounds guests with festive gourds, hardwood walls and floors, and lovingly worn rugs underfoot.
