When people say Watson Drugs and Soda Fountain has a checkered history, they?re talking about the ever-present tablecloths, which flaunt cheery red-and-white squares that whisk diners back to the 1950s. Here in the more than a century-old establishment, cooks still stack pancakes higher than the Statue of Liberty?s beehive hairdo as kids ogle retro candies such as Necco wafers, Sweethearts, and Clark bars. Come lunchtime, half-pound burgers sizzle on the grill, alongside toppings such as bacon and mushrooms. Near a vintage Pepsi-Cola sign, soda jerks uncap bottles of root beer and scoop banana floats into glass boats en route to white leather booths or a sunny outdoor patio. The shop also summons nostalgia with its shiny jukebox, vintage postcards, and iconic storefront, which has been featured in films, commercials, and PSAs for time travelers.

The Cozy Cave, or living room, of Chapman Coffee House pays homage to Bahá'u'lláh, the founder of the Bahá'i faith. For a two-year period, the spiritual leader sought refuge in a cave, embracing seclusion as an opportunity for meditation. Acknowledging his example, the founders of Chapman Coffee House established the Cozy Cave as "a place for meaningful conversation." On the walls, chalkboards display words of wisdom, dictated by Bahá'u'lláh, as well as artwork from Orange High School students. Groups meet here for daily interfaith devotions; individuals often come to quietly contemplate. In the kitchen, baristas accentuate Diedrich coffee beverages with artistic flair, manipulating foam into the shape of hearts, houses, and flowers. Cooks dedicate their attention to preparing white-chocolate brownies—a house specialty—as well as grilled paninis. On occasion, live musicians fill the dining area with song. In the winter, a fire crackles in the cozy cave to warm up the dwarves who live in the back.

In order to open Kaffa!, the Kim family decided their first requirement was to create the ideal cup of coffee. Hours of experimentation and a decade of business later, they've found several approaches to this goal. For one, they never let drip coffee sit?every 60 minutes, they pour out the old batch and brew a new one from freshly ground, micro-roasted beans. Cups of joe are also available in pour-over and french-press styles for an ultra-pure taste, and their iced coffee is cold brewed to bring out a strong flavor with little bitterness. As far as espresso, the coffee shop serves theirs in a short-pull ristretto style, which brews a bolder, fuller liquid with less water than standard espresso. These techniques beget a range of specialty drinks, such as lattes and mochas flavored with Monin syrup and topped with artistic froth designs, and iced coffee beverages blended with mint and crushed Oreos. To pair with drinks, the staff crafts a range of paninis and salads that contain more vegetables than the evidence locker from Peter Rabbit's trial.
