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.
Guests at Peaberry's Café & Bakery can chill out with an iced mocha ($3.49–$4.19) and free WiFi while scanning a menu of delectable, artistically arranged edibles. From open to close, patrons can enjoy breakfast specialties such as the egg-and-cheese croissant ($3.39) paired with a large vanilla-bean latte ($4.19), and linger long enough to make lunch out of a half-sandwich and crock of soup ($6.99+). Hot paninis come in six varietals, including the classic grilled Reuben ($6.99) and the portobello-and- roasted-veggie panini ($6.99). To refuel after an exhausting online session of closing popup ads, grab a ham-and-swiss croissant ($4.29), a tuna wrap accompanied by chips ($4.59), or an apple-walnut salad ($6.59) before heading out to face the rest of the day.
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.
