Jump to: That's the Spirit! Captain Bonnie Barnacles: In an era when most women were relegated to sitting at home by the fire knitting children to help with chores, Bonnie Barnacles dreamt of more. Stowing away on the S.S. Anti-Authority in 1778, she quickly organized a mutiny, dazzling her crusty shipmates with her cutlass juggling and partial memorization of the alphabet. Today, she and her forsaken crew still haunt the harbor, turning a pretty pence with their home jewelry-making workshops and inspirational cassettes.

Although Keith and Terry Wygant look to the Mediterranean for 905 Cafe & Grill’s culinary inspiration, they strive to use ingredients that are close to home. Locally sourced fish sizzles in the kitchen, homemade burger patties never see the inside of a freezer, and the house chili—which, the menu asserts, should have its own Facebook page—simmers under Keith's careful supervision. Blackboard specials such as popcorn-shrimp po’ boys, meanwhile, add unpredictability to the menu, shifting alongside the bar's catalog of seasonal beers and cocktails.

From breakfast hashbrowns to Cajun tartar sauce, many meal components are homemade, fueling the restaurant's neighborhood charm. This laid-back vibe becomes even more palpable on the outdoor patio, where music often accompanies bites, or on Sangria Saturdays, a popular alternative to other restaurants’ Tap-Water Tuesdays.

Since 1999, Rajput Indian Cuisine has been delighting taste buds with authentic Indian cuisine that's garnered glowing reviews and accolades, including three 2013 Hampton Roads Magazine Readers' Choice Awards for Best Overall Restaurant, Best Indian Cuisine, and Best Buffet, as well as three 2013 Virginian-Pilot Readers' Choice Awards. Diners settle into crimson dining rooms with white-tablecloth-draped tables before savoring lamb or goat curries, tandoori chicken delicacies, and spiced seafood with foliage and framed artwork hanging overhead. The restaurant welcomes vegetarian and vegan diners with an extensive roster of meat-free fodder, and chefs keep the operation green by incorporating organic ingredients and high-fiving every tree limb they pass. Additionally, Rajput Indian Cuisine will soon be opening a third location in Suffolk's Harbour View West Shopping Center.

Lumpia House’s namesake delicacy––lumpia––lures taste buds with its thin, fried-to-order crepe stuffed with savory meat fillings such as pork, chicken, and beef. Lumpia is one of the many beloved gems of Filipino cuisine that the restaurant proudly showcases in its cheerful dining room swathed in red, yellow, and orange hues. Lumpia House’s chefs dedicates a portion of the menu’s spotlight to pork, preparing it more than a dozen ways for aromatic dishes such as pork tocino, which plates sweetened, cured, and shredded pieces of the flavorful meat. After guests fill up on hearty entrees and fried rice, they can burn off recently earned calories by climbing onto the karaoke stage to sing their favorite songs and remind fellow diners to chew 27 times before swallowing. Lumpia House also honors the brave members of the US Armed Forces with an active-duty-military discount.

Julie Fabing Burleson and Suzy Vinson Nettles feel that the kitchen is just another place for kids to flex their creativity. They opened Young Chefs Academy to provide kids aged 3–18 with cooking programs targeted to preschoolers and kindergarteners, elementary schoolers, and older kids ready for trickier techniques and intricate recipes. Regardless of a student’s age, he or she is always taught the pillars of home cooking, including how to be safe in the kitchen, how to properly handle and prepare food, how to bake, and how to talk down an oven that constantly overheats. While participating in the entertaining cooking lessons, kids may not even realize that each class also allows them to practice their math, reading-comprehension, and communication skills.

The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans lures passersby into Bean There Coffeehouse's two locations, where baristas reenergize sluggish bodies with a menu cascading with traditional brews and seasonal espresso beverages. The coffee shops' thoroughly vetted beans are plucked from the top 20% rated throughout the world, with special attention paid to the country of origin, the altitude, and the astrological sign of each bean. Serving up flavorful coffee is their top priority, and the staff also cultivates a homey, neighborhood feel at each establishment, welcoming guests to events such as coffee tastings, dessert pairings, and poetry slams.
