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.

Papa Murphy’s serves up a tasty menu of handmade take ‘n’ bake pizzas using dough, cheese, meats, and veggies that are freshly prepared every day. After customers choose their pies, Papa Murphy's slice slingers build the pizza in-store and package it for customers to bake at home in the oven, in a pottery kiln, or over a pile of burning cookbooks. Customers can watch as Papa Murphy’s pie pros corral the ingredients of a signature pizza such as the Cowboy, complete with pepperoni, italian sausage, mushrooms, and black olives, or request the hawaiian, a traditional pizza crowned with Dole pineapple and canadian bacon. Deep-dish fans dive into the Chicago-style stuffed pizza packed with onions, mozzarella, four kinds of meat, and one of the most colorful public-transit systems in America, and salads and 2-liter soft drinks serve as the final pieces in an irregularly shaped pizza puzzle.
The first IHOP—the dream of founders Al and Jerry Lapin—opened in 1958 in Toluca Lake, California, and was originally dubbed the International House of Pancakes. Since then, rapid expansion has led to myriad milestones across the company's colorful history, from introducing its modern IHOP acronym in 1973 to its 1,000th restaurant opening in Layton, Utah, in 2001.
Today, the company stands strong with around 1,500 locations across North and Central America, each one an enthusiastic dispenser of pancakes, french toast, and tables constructed entirely out of bacon. Though IHOP is known as a bastion of breakfast, it also stays open during the day and into the evening, delivering lunch and dinner as well.
Inside TJ's Burgers and More, and hanging above the spacious dining area of booths and tables, a large marquee sign blazons "TJ's Burgers" in big, bold letters. Around it, other artifacts fan out across the walls including football jerseys, vintage soda signs, and even a canoe. TJ's eclectic décor fashions a playful, laid back atmosphere, where visitors are free to personalize burgers at a build-your-own burger bar, or attempt to tackle pre-assembled gourmet burgers and home-style sandwiches. On Friday nights, the restaurant hosts an all-you-can-eat catfish dinner, and everyday, it doles out beer, wine, and hand-dipped milkshakes to wash everything down.
