The chefs at Julio's Natural Foods Restaurant concoct fresh, vitamin-packed dishes from healthy ingredients. They boil up pots of organic brown rice and quinoa to accompany grilled organic tofu and fish fillets, and they pack their turkey burgers and zero-fat tuna sandwiches with fistfuls of sprouts, alfalfa, carrots, and other veggies. Signature dishes include Julio's special quesadilla, a popular plate of tortilla, cheese, tomatoes, spinach, and secret sauce. Fresh squeezed juices and complex smoothies wash down these feel-good foods and make guilt-free filling for water balloons.

Though you may not garner it from the name, the menu at Bagelworks goes far beyond their eponymous doughy diameter. Onion and honey whole-wheat bagels, made onsite, hold up on their own with a schmear of cream cheese but work just as well bolstering deli fare such as house salads, eggy breakfast dishes, and fish platters. Other items on the expansive menu include grilled cheese, pastrami paninis, and pancakes.
Juice & Java prides itself in a menu filled with drinks and organic ingredients all pulled directly and unadulterated from their natural birthplaces. Made without added sugar or unhealthy additives, the fruit smoothies attack devious thirsts with subtle flavor combinations such as strawberry-banana or honeydew, watermelon, banana, and cantaloupe. Smoked salmon cavorts among pieces of fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil as part of a salad menu that also includes J&J’s custom platters—medleys of vegetables served with the customer’s choice of tuber-, grain-, and protein-based nourishment, such as organic tofu or grilled tilapia. Meanwhile, spinach, tofu, and whole-wheat wraps unfurl in the stomachs of eager diners like a diner invitation written on a Fruit Roll-Up, and an abundance of vegan items makes the menu suitable for herbivores.
Sugar Cakes & Supplies offers budding bakers the instruction and supplies they need to create their own cakey, culinary masterpieces. Each class will educate curious cooks on the ins and outs of batter concoction and proper baking methods as they craft a rich red-velvet cake that can make a great treat for birthdays or a squishy stand-in for a missing footrest.

The class will prepare one cake to be shared between all of the participants.
