Regardless of the season, the experts at J. Mosca Landscaping & Design have plenty of outdoor tasks to keep them busy. As the spring sun starts to shine, landscapers clean up damage from winter storms and yeti mosh pits before seeding lawns and setting up irrigation systems. They also stop by during the dog days of summer to trim the grass and mulch flowerbeds. Once the weather turns cold, the techs shift gears, trading hoes for shovels in order to clear walkways of drifted snow. In addition to seasonal tasks, the experts also know their way around construction; aided by their own fleet of earth-moving M-Series Bobcats, their sure-handed masons can craft walkways, patios, retaining walls, and fireplaces no matter the time of year.

Chinatown has its fair share of great restaurants and bakeries on nearly every corner, but Great Taste Bakery & Restaurant delivers the best of both worlds all wrapped into one location. Inside, black and white checkered tiles, wooden tables and a wall of mirrors fill out the rooms. Specializing in authentic Chinese foods, the cozy restaurant serves up traditional American breakfasts consisting of French toast, breakfast sandwiches with egg, coffee and green tea, but most people order up the pineapple shaped coconut buns, peach mousse cake and red bean buns on prominent display from the glass bakery cases. As the day progresses, appetites turn to ginger and scallion lo mein, shrimp dumpling noodle soup, chicken chow mein and roast pork rice dishes. There are several tables here but most people order the food for takeout.
