At Cafe Lily, the vibrant, house-made fare mirrors the pastel storefronts of the Old Poway Village outside. The eatery was described by the Pomerado News as "an energetic hub brewing social interaction and creativity, as envisioned by owner Sean Sassani." A blend of Sean's artistic inclinations and his mother, Lily's, culinary talents, the café doles out steaming cups of Divine Madman coffee, a flavorful, organic java that's roasted in 1-pound batches via eco-friendly and socially responsible techniques. Loose-leaf black, green, chai, and herbal teas hail from global gardens, but breakfast and lunch menus claim roots in Lily's own kitchen. Cold sandwiches and colorful paninis, some stuffed with Boar's Head meats⎯like a deli owner's bed pillow⎯serve as savory precursors to pastries and cakes baked onsite.

Patrons can entertain themselves around a fragmented puzzle, or absorb euphonic sounds during open-mic sessions and sets by live musicians. Creativity continues to run abound in the form of colorful artwork by local artists. Coral walls and a fireplace add to the coffee shop's warm ambiance, which extends to an outdoor deck and induces a sneaking suspicion that you might secretly be on fire.

Variety may be the spice of life, but at Buttercream it's also the sweetness. Each day, co-owners Jeanette Dennis Eddery and Kathi Catania Jackson whip up a special cupcake flavor to go along with their regular offerings. Though each day's specialty varies by month—bringing with it everything from coconut lime to cherry almond—the staples are enough to entice any sweet tooth through the door. Chocolate mint's richness offsets the light, more delicate flavor of lemon mousse, which in turn bows to the signature neapolitan, a cake marbled with vanilla and Valrhona chocolate and topped with strawberry buttercream frosting. And even when they're not making cupcakes or signing autographs with icing, these confectioners are busy making other unexpected sweets: cannolis, cheesecake, brownies, cookies, and other desserts.

The bakers are true artists with frosting and are eager to design custom desserts for special events, whether the client desires elegant buttercream swirls for a wedding or a more playful cake encrusted with candy-bar crumbles.

Safari Coffee Roasters' expert baristas brew more than 75 varieties of Arabica coffee with a keen and unrelenting attention to flavor and caffeine levels. The team ensures freshness by roasting each coffee-based thirst quencher on site and never using beans discovered in a Ziploc bag that was buried in the ground. Beverages range from $1.75 to $4.95, but Safari offers a "think green" discount, encouraging coffee sippers to bring in their own cup by offering their liquidly wares for $1 for those who do so. Pour a Dancing Bear concoction down a parched gullet and enjoy dual-flavored African and Central American beans roasted at two levels ($16.95/lb.), or sample the Continental, a unity of French and Columbian beans ($15.95/lb.). Coffee service usually takes fewer than five minutes, like the time it takes to mash potatoes with a cinder block. The café cuisine department at Safari also brings an armada of cupcakes, scones, cookies, and bran and cake muffins to taste apparatuses.
