The familial gourmands at Ange Netta’s populate a mouthwatering menu with homemade Italian and American fare. Sautéed italian greens and plum tomatoes slink between troves of penne rigate in full orders of emerald pasta ($10), and italian hot sausage and meatballs pile atop fresh ricotta and mozzarella cheeses to create heaping stacks of hearty lasagna (10). Health-conscious menu items, such as the grilled tilapia marinara ($8) and vegetable burger ($6), promote nourishing nosh fests that, much like rechargeable batteries, keep bodies moving without slowing them down.
Winner of multiple awards, Steel Trolley Diner's succulent stable of signature burgers ($6.29 each) is enhanced by symphonic sauces and fresh-cut fries ($1.20 extra). The Marley burger bathes a patty in Jamaican jerk sauce and orange-chipotle mayonnaise, and the Elvis burger derives its flavor from the same bacon, peanut butter, and banana-jam recipe the King used as shampoo. The eatery's kitchen craftsmen traditionally mold each burger's midsection with a half-pound ground-beef patty but will gladly supplant meaty disks with a vegetarian Boca burger, tasty turkey burger, grilled chicken breast, or a printed-out photograph of a burger for no extra charge.
Peaberry's Café entices eaters to linger in its sunlit dining room with free WiFi and a menu of paninis, wraps, soups, salads, coffee drinks, and more. On the tongue's dance floor, specialty drinks such as the frothy amaretto mocha approach scratch-made european pastries to invite them to a flavor tango ($3.69–$4.49), while a chicken pesto panini utilizes mozzarella and roasted red pepper to chaperone hunger, ensuring it behaves ($7.49). An apple walnut salad ($6.59) paired with a wild berry smoothie ($3.89–$4.69) fulfills daily fruit requirements established in the USDA's food hexagon, and the ham, egg, and cheese croissant, one of six breakfast specialties served all day, satisfies protein hankerings ($3.89).
The hybrid vegan café and gift shop deals in good vibes, whether they take the form of sandwiches and soups made from scratch, eco-fashions, or candles that both soothe the senses and keep away ghosts that are wearing flammable bed sheets. After tasting the zing of a spicy plum vinaigrette or biting into organic sprouted-grains bread at the Compassionate Café, guests can browse a selection of eclectic wares. Vegan jewelry sparkles with gemstones alongside Dead Sea mineral soaps and colorful socks made from recycled cotton, which are ideal for keeping a giant caterpillar warm.
The Boardman location also delves into the world of knitting with a lounge where needle artists can pick up skeins of silk or bamboo yarn, sink into armchairs, and clack away until they have a spider web to sleep in that night.
