Whether you're looking for a tiered, edible centerpiece or a plateful of pastry pals, Yummy's thoughtful menu includes confections for all occasions. Curl your tongue around a flavor-soaked slice of vanilla cake caressed with sweet, creamy frosting or wake up with a slice of orange-cranberry bread waiting for you in the shower. Fresh-out-of-the-oven sourdough begs for a thick smattering of chunky peanut butter. Breads start at $1.50, and cookies are $6 for a dozen. Yummy's also sells more-whimsical treats, including cupcakes on a stick and massive marshmallows doused in chocolate. Dorm rooms and slumber parties nationwide welcome the addition of the award-winning pepperoni rolls (four for $5, double-stuffed rolls at $2 each) in a variety of flavor combinations (spinach-feta, mozzarella, jalapeño-cheddar). Yummy's pound cakes, strudels, cinnamon rolls, and sticky buns are all priced under $5.
Owner and executive chef Aaron L. Ruggles char-grills flank steak and tops it with pickled sweet summer peppers and smokes fresh Atlantic salmon on a cedar plank. Succulent wild-caught scallops come pan-roasted with avocado-roasted corn orzo pasta salad and smoked red chili sauce. Moody, romantic lighting surrounds diners as servers ferry plates of pastas, sandwiches, and pizzas to four-top tables alongside house-baked focaccia bread, widely considered to be more delicious than bread baked from dismantled houses. On Wednesday nights, the original Cheap Date Night menu proffer plenty of options for every type of occasion, as do a series of daily specials, such as Monday's $5 burger-and-fries special and Tuesday's retail-wine night. A kids menu is always available.
A railroad-themed eatery in a refurbished train depot where canoes and stagecoaches hang from the ceiling, The Pufferbelly Ltd. serves hearty American fare such as smoked St. Louis?style ribs and reubens made of corned beef or saut?ed grouper.

As festive as a pi?ata stuffed with birthday cakes, friendly staffers throw seasonal parties galore, from breezy autumn clam bakes to vibrant Mardi Gras fetes.
The sandwich artisans at Franklin Square Deli have been assembling fresh cut-to-order deli delights for more than 27 years. The shop adorns its slate of 14 vinegary, full-loaf Italian subs with such savory meat-and-cheese combos as corned beef and swiss ($4.50 for a 6") or prosciutto and muenster ($5.90 for a 6"). A roundup of hearty gourmet and bagel sandwiches satisfies stacking enthusiasts with options such as the Mid Town, piled with turkey breast ($7.15), or Carl's Favorite bagel, a hubris-rich collection of capocollo, provolone, onions, and cream cheese wedged between a toasted onion bagel ($6.10). Thirsty diners grease gullets with soft drinks (starting at $1.45) or bowls of homemade chili.
Eddy's Deli serves more than 100 inexpensive and classic menu items ranging from breakfast and sandwiches to salads, soups, dinner plates, and desserts. The breakfast menu is served from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m., and has enough combinations to excite both bright-beaked early birds and groggy nighthawks. Feed your inner child with breakfast favorites such as the low-calorie or homestyle french toast ($3.75). For a filling feast, the house breakfast special ($3.55) comes complete with two eggs and toast, along with home fries, grits, or fruit with bacon, ham, or sausage. Noontime hunger-havers will be glad to learn that Eddy's cooks its own corned beef and roast beef on-site at its restaurants daily. Dig into a corned beef on rye or the roast beef (both $6.95) for lunch, savoring the meatsperience while fondly recalling someone else's childhood from 1930s New York. For a satisfying supper, try half a fried chicken served with glazed honey, or the savory comfort of baked meat loaf (both $7.95). The casual and friendly atmosphere at Eddy's offers small and large tables ideal for unicyclists and bicycle gangs alike. Whether swinging by to enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, or standing in the middle of the room and screaming, the expansive menu has something to offer, with simple edibles so delicious that they might even stanch the screams.
What sets the Hungry Howie’s menu apart from other pizza parlors, other than its complete lack of profanity, is the eight flavored-crust options that inject life into the formerly discarded pizza part. If you’re allergic to life, inject butter, onion, butter cheese, ranch, Cajun spices, garlic herb, or sesame instead. Keep thinking outside the pizza box by loading your flavorful crust with specialty pizza innards, such as the Philly cheese and steak ($12.99 for a medium), the Howie Maui (ham, smoked bacon, and pineapple, $12.99 for medium), and the bacon-cheddar cheeseburger ($12.99 for medium). DIY diners, on the other hand, can opt for a medium 12-inch pizza for $8.49 and add their own toppings for an additional $1.50 each. Howie's also serves up tasty wings (10 for $6.99), salads (try a small Greek for $4.99), calzone-style subs ($6.99), and Howie bread, which comes in original ($3.49), three-cheeser ($4.99), Cajun ($3.49), and sticky-sweet cinnamon ($3.49). Prices vary from location to location, so there might be some small variation from what is listed above.
