Named after the great Humphrey Bogart, Bogie's Cafe slings French-American-style cuisine in a cozy diner infused with old Hollywood memorabilia and more quirky decor, such as the giant rubber ducky that doubled for the Maltese falcon. Its colorful interior sets a playful tone for diners looking to unwind over omelets at breakfast or burgers, sandwiches, and salads at lunch and French-American cuisine at dinner.
Stocked to bursting with handcrafted sandwiches, savory sides, and organic fair-trade coffee, this unassuming deli sates the appetites of on-the-go customers. A chalkboard menu presents the vegan breakfast sandwich with a colorful flourish of penmanship, along with the avocado hero, with the green fruit acting as "meat" amid ample veggies and cheese. Eco-friendly java from Olympia Coffee Roasting Company gives customers a welcome jolt to their morning in case they forget to kiss their toaster, and freshly squeezed juices and gluten-free pastries accommodate health-conscious breakfasts.
At Java Jax, refreshing, roasted-on-site coffee beverages unite with fresh sandwiches and specialty hot dogs to populate a varied menu of afternoon fare.

Meanwhile, patrons of holed cuisine can delight in a tasty spread of hummus on a bagel ($3.50) or spoon out a see-hole through a turkey sandwich ($6.50). Feel free to rest atop the cushy diner-style stools and bathe in the store's natural sunlight as you absorb the fresh-brewed espresso potables, such as the café mocha ($3–$3.75), or sip a blend of earthbound sweets in the fruit smoothies ($3.50–$4).
The rich flavors of Arabica beans burst from Panama Red Coffee Co.'s menu of handpicked coffee, ground and steeped using a craftsman-style batch-roasting technique.

Cono pouring is available at the coffee bar for tastings and regular cups of coffee.
The owners of Tea Rex have a serious obsession with boba. Before they opened up shop, they used to drive an hour each way?or crabwalk 18 hours each way?to satisfy their craving for a drink laden with the chewy tapioca pearls. But the fruit of their long journeys was often inconsistent. Thus, Tea Rex was born. Today, the shop offers seven different types of beverages, such as milk tea, smoothies, and Vietnamese-style iced coffee packed with regular or popping boba.
Encorecake's bakers turn dessert into an art form. In a kitchen filled with the smells of fresh baked treats, they craft colorful cakes and cupcakes covered in fluffy frosting, in unusual flavors ranging from green tea and s'mores to jellybean and German chocolate.

Customers can also request made-to-order 8-inch cakes layered with buttercream or chocolate, commission a customized multi-tier cake for a wedding, or project a hologram request for a 3D cake for a birthday celebration.
