Palio?s Pizza Caf? may boast multiple locations, but the cuisine is unique to each kitchen. The restaurant?s chefs commit to serving specialty pizzas on handmade dough, crafted from high-protein, red-bran wheat. They top this crust with all-natural marinara and pizza sauces, real mozzarella cheese, and farm-fresh produce. The blending of fine ingredients produces some classic and more unusual pies, ranging from a meat lover?s with four staple pizza proteins to a pie that combines roasted flavors of poultry and cashews.
Of course, the restaurant?s commitment to quality doesn?t end with their food. They also invest time in making community events special. They regularly participate in fundraisers for high-school bands, charities such as the Arthritis Foundation, and local Scout troupes and chicken coops.
For decades, the aroma of freshly baked cookies has lured kids to the kitchen. There's something irresistible about that combination of melted chocolate and sugary dough, and it's not something you simply grow out of. Thanks to Nestle Tollhouse Cafe by Chip, you don't have to. The sweetest shop in Plano welcomes kids of all ages to browse cases lined with giant cookie cakes, gooey brownies, and old-fashioned chocolate chip cookies. On warm summer days, the shop also serves frozen yogurt and, upon special request, douses customers with the cookie dough hose.
The chefs at Kinoko reach for organic, local ingredients when preparing their menu of light Japanese fare. Dishes include pork dumplings, onigiri--rice balls laden with fillings such as tofu, salmon, or ground chicken--and a trio of fresh salads filled with veggies and optional proteins and dressings. An environmentally-aware eatery, Kinoko uses compostable and recyclable take-out packaging.
It may seem odd for a cafe to advertise its water in its name, but the water at Dubs Tea and Water is extremely pure. When patrons want a little more flavor with their water, they can also opt for flavored teas and locally roasted coffee. Both come in hot and iced incarnations that are served, like the water, in eco-friendly cups.
