A destination for exploration, Whispering Leaves Herb & Sip Shop features an immense inventory of teas, herbs, and spices to add new aromas and flavors to meals and tea time. Certified organic teas such as yerba mate and pu-erh sit side by side with boldly caffeinated teas such as earl grey and english breakfast. Aromatic blends of non-caffeinated tea combine the flavor and scent of fruits and herbs, such as raspberry rose petal and organic ginger. Once visitors have found their chosen tea, they can take the leaves home or have the tea brewed so they can sit in the café, sip their steamy beverage, and interpret messages in the fog that forms on their glasses.

Beginning with the time-honored flavors of traditional South Asian cuisine, Bawarchi Indian Cuisine Restaurant's chefs create accessible dishes that represent the culinary traditions of India. Their selection of crepe-like dosas draws inspiration from the southern portions of the country, as evidenced by the mysore masla dosa, lined with spicy chutney and stuffed with vegetables cooked in southern Indian spices. As a demonstration of their commitment to northern cooking techniques, the chefs roast everything from lamb and chicken to shrimp and salmon inside a clay tandoor oven. The chefs even look to the Indo-Chinese border when creating dishes such as the cauliflower fritters cooked in spicy manchurian sauce.

Fusing contemporary cuisines with traditional Asian dishes, dining duos can indulge in Circle's menu of eclectic eats for brunch, lunch, or dinner. Inventive appetizers including the lightly fried cheesesteak spring rolls (a $4.95 value) kick start lunch and dinner food processors before plowing into two flavorful entrees. Immerse spoons in a sea of green pepper, basil, and kabocha pumpkin curry (an $11.95 value), or let the vegetarian thai burrito's layers of edamame puree and grilled seitan (a $12.95 value) help sate grumbling stomachs before their spiteful F-22 impressions overwhelm all conversation. Wrap up evening with a shareable dessert such as the coconut custard (a $6 value) or a thai donut (a $4 value). A full line of Coke products (a $1.50 value) wash down the fusiony feast, and thai coffee (a $2 value) and coconut juice ($2) provide accompaniment more authentically Asian than a rendition of “The Fried-Rice-Spangled Banner of Thailand.”
