With a multifarious menu, heated outdoor patio, and nightly entertainment, Maxwells Brew provides a dynamic atmosphere for caffeine and comestible consumption. Patrons can moisten their dried jugulars with a splash of macchiato espresso ($1.80–$2.25) or pacify monstrous hunger pangs with the Mediterranean combo, featuring stuffed grape leaves, hummus, tabbouleh, and pita bread ($6.35). After noshing on nourishments, guests can create tongue hula hoops and engagement rings out of puffs of flavored hookah from a Turkish pipe ($11).
Flying Rhino floods taste sensors with a sumptuous selection of fresh-roasted coffees, handmade chocolates, and natural fruit-smoothie purees. Flown in from all over the world, Flying Rhino's specialty coffees feature arabica beans that are grown in high-elevation areas, imbuing them with deep flavor and fearlessness of roller coasters. Roasted in-house, the bounty of brews includes the popular, rich, and velvety Rockin’ Rhino blend ($9.25/8 oz.), the nutty, chocolatey, and citrusy organic Bobolink ($7.25/8 oz.), the sweet, northern Italian-style Jungle Jive ($9/8 oz.), and more. Caffeinated-beverage sippers enjoy specialty drinks such as lattes, espresso, and chai tea. Flying Rhino also harnesses a variety of smooth and creamy chocolates from Guittard, a company that works directly with cacao-bean farms and disgruntled Wonka employees, to create a selection of high-quality, preservative- and wax- free chocolate made with fresh cream from a local dairy. Sink teeth into the gooey goodness of handmade chocolate salted caramels ($5/fourpack) or mellow in the mouth-melting flavors of lush aztec truffles ($1.75), coated with a chocolaty shell, stuffed with a rich, dark chocolate ganache, and tinged with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ancho chili powder ($1.75 each). Sandwiched between a cocoon of dark, milk, or white chocolate, turtles are infused with toasted pecans nesting amid a sweet bed of viscous caramel ($2.50 each), and handmade english toffee ($9.95/half-pound) makes for a satisfyingly crunchy, chocolaty treat for any Easter or Boxing Day-in-July celebration.

Aromas from The Doughnut Box’s 34 flavors of fresh, daily baked donuts undulate across the eatery’s cozy dining room as diners peruse a tidy menu of breakfast and lunch fare. Crackerjack bakers bring 20 years of know-how to their sugary handiworks, conjuring oval-shaped persians, cream-filled pastries, and a selection of powdered wedding rings for on-the-go grooms ($0.89 for a single, $4.49 for a half dozen). Fluffy eggs anchor breakfast sandwiches ($1.35+) adorned with gooey cheese and sizzling turkey sausage, and cookies and bagels tide stomachs over until lunch, when diners can wrap mitts around a hearty corned-beef sandwich ($3.99) or see how many bagels they can fit on a WWII-era saber. As customers ingest and imbibe, the shop’s free WiFi allows them to send important emails or hunt down the Tooth Fairy’s contact information. An online order form facilitates leisurely donut selection from home, balanced out by speedy pickup at the shop’s convenient drive-through window.
Blossoming from the original Pennywise, established in 1969, Expresso Car Wash now shoos dirt form begrimed automobiles at six convenient lube-and-detail facilities. Upholding a focus on swift service, mechanics perform quick 10-minute oil changes, towel off 12-minute full details, and scrub cloths on their eight-minute abs. As environmental stewards, the detailing staff carts off all used water to a water-treatment facility and uses fewer chemicals than home washings tend to.
Each vehicle's aesthetic and under-the-hood beauty gets continual boosts with additional services, including air-conditioner and timing-belt repair and transmission flushes. When they are not pampering autos, the Expresso staff lends philanthropic support to nonprofits, including local schools, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and teenage cars saving up for a new driver.
At Dégagé Express, Head Chef Joseph Jacobsen uses techniques learned beside Jacques Pépin and Bobby Flay to transform locally sourced meats and produce—most cultivated within 30 miles of the restaurant—into elegant sandwiches and desserts. These ingredients fill the menu, composing seasonal dishes such as the Missy's Fix sandwich, made with housemade corned beef, apple slaw, thousand-island dressing, and local sauerkraut. Sous Chef Skyler Stanton, meanwhile, cooks soups such as the Train Wreck Chili. A testament to the culinary staff's creativity, croutons flavored with bacon fat and cheese top the restaurant's caesar salad, and housemade hot chocolate and locally baked pies from Schmucker's lend a sweet note, like a banker who underwrites loans with chocolate coins.
Dégagé Express calls the historic Commercial Building home. It is rumored that none other than Abraham Lincoln stayed at the building when it doubled as an inn way back in the early 19th century. Today, Dégagé uses the winsome building to host another cornerstone of the American experience: live jazz music.
