Bageltown Cafe, opened in February 2013, serves up coffee, tea, and classic deli cuisine. Patrons can order bagels smeared with scallion- or strawberry-infused cream cheeses, or opt for bialys and made-from-scratch baked sweets that are baked fresh each day. Cooks also grill panini sandwiches, prepare whitefish and lox salads, and sell Boar's Head meats and cheeses by the pound.

When not detailing playing-card cakes from moldable fondant, Get Baked prides itself on being a one-stop shop for lounging and noshing on all things crumbly sweet and oven baked. Fragrances of fresh-made focaccia, apple turnovers, and 100% Arabica blend coffee fill the quaint bakery where modern hanging lights dangle overhead like blown glass flowers. Beside red and black armchairs, display cases boast neat rows of cookies, brownies, and signature cupcakes such as roman apple and caramel Snickers. Get Baked also offers gelato and sorbet made with all-natural Italian imported ingredients, and 100 flavors of chilly snoball, made with ice crushed by the boxing gloves of Italy's own Rocky Balboa.

Johnny B’s Coffee Shop serves up classic American eats in a classy '50s-style diner, layering modern sleekness over doo-wop ambience for locals looking for homemade goodness away from home. Breakfast is served all day, so get an early start to an afternoon by chowing down on made-to-order pancakes with peanut-butter chips ($6.99) and chasing them with freshly ground coffee ($1.25). Or grab a take-out-only commuter special to arrive at work fortified with two eggs, cheese, and bacon, ham, or sausage on a roll ($3.99). Lunchtime brings customers together on old-fashioned red barstools to unfold vengeance plots over a monte cristo sandwich, which encases ham or turkey and melted swiss cheese between twin french-toast slices ($8.95). Soups satisfy stomachs in different ways every day, and a rotating menu of daily specials means patrons are often graced with guest appearances by celebrity edibles ($3.95). If all the nostalgia floating around causes your throat to choke up mid-swallow, loosen it with slurpable desserts such as a soda float ($3.50) or an old-fashioned egg cream ($3.50).

Teapot takes its inspiration from the Victorian tearooms of old, where tea was equal parts an excuse to nosh mouthwatering sweets and a social engagement that eventually led to common-law marriages. Get into English character with a scone with butter or preserves ($4.50) to complement a hot, steaming pot of Earl Grey or Darjeeling ($6.95). Teapot's steepable leaf selection has more than 30 varieties of white, black, oolong, rooibos, herbal, and green goodness. While a bountiful brew dances upon your tongue, nibble bites of a specialty sandwich such as the Elizabeth, a cucumber and herb-cream sandwich on a toasted baguette, or the William—white cheddar, green apple, and herb mayonnaise on a croissant ($7.95 each). Pastries and salads are also on the menu.
