Within the historic Cottage Grove Hotel, Buster's Main Street Cafe serves burgers of locally raised, grass-fed beef from Knee Deep Cattle Company. Chefs crown patties with accouterments such as bacon, cheese, ham, and avocado. Breakfast offerings of omelets and several styles of eggs benedict reward early-rising appetites, while later diners may sip craft brews or select one of 200 craft sodas, including 40 varieties of root beer massaged from the roots of sacred shrubs.
After the birth of her first child in 2001, Baby Boot Camp’s founder and certified trainer and spin and Pilates instructor Kristen Horler wanted a postnatal fitness program that didn't require her to leave her baby at the door. Her solution was to start a suit of programs just for new and expecting parents where mothers could bond with their infants while soaking up the support and camaraderie of their peers. During Strollfit sessions, certified trainers and Radio Flyers equipped with outboard motors lead ladies through innovative routines that incorporate baby-filled strollers into yoga, cardio, and strength training. For long-term fitness, coaches encourage aspiring runners to break through the tape during the 5K training program, and Kristen's own Nutrition Solutions teaches the benefits of healthy-eating habits during a four-week program designed by registered dieticians.

Josun Korean Grill’s experienced chefs dazzle diners with a menu of Korean fusion cuisine served in a modern, elegant dining room. In the pork egg roll, tendrils of glass noodles snake around pork and vegetables within a deep-fried envelope, ready to ship to eager stomachs without assistance from a Forever stamp ($3.50). A lightly salted pollock fillet debates the merits of surf and turf with banchan and steamed rice on the grilled pollock platter ($10.50), and chefs prepare the seafood jun-gol hot pot in front of customers' awestruck peepers, uniting assorted seafood with noodles in a spicy stew ($12.95). A half-rack of special Josun barbecue pork ribs soak in Korean spices before upstaging banchan and provoking white rice to get really steamed ($11.95).
