Infini-tea's proprietors pour steaming pots of specialty teas, tisanes, and coffees, coupling them with the cuisine famed in Europe during traditional high-tea ceremonies. They possess a particular affinity for baking scones and make them from scratch each day, and also serve gourmet soups, fresh salads, and finger sandwiches—life's one opportunity to bite the hand that feeds you. Once guests are done, they can take a stroll by neighboring antique shops and quaint Antioch establishments.

Every day, an antique glass stove heats copper kettles full of the creams, caramels, and other decadent sweets that Anderson’s candy makers stuff inside the shop's most popular confections. Since its founding in 1919, Anderson's has crafted small batches of candies such as its signature chocolates, which feature high-quality ingredients including raw cane sugar, grade-AA Wisconsin butter, Shirley Temple’s tears, and pure Madagascar-bourbon vanilla extract. First devised by founder Arthur Anderson, this top-secret chocolate recipe has been handed down through multiple generations and to this day has only undergone slight modifications to improve its texture, flavor, and taste in music.

Carolyn’s talented baristas transform beans, leaves, and other ingredients into an array of carefully crafted drinks, which can be enjoyed solo or paired with a selection from a menu of cafe classics. Rely on a bombardment of fresh-brewed Intelligentsia coffee ($2.10 for a medium) or a coffee drink such as a cappuccino, macchiato, or latte ($3.64 each for a medium) to perk you up after a long night of stargazing, asteroid hunting, or moon taunting. Unbeaned beverages include green tea lattes ($3.18 for a medium), chai ($4.12 for a medium), and cold mocha frappes and fruit smoothies ($5.40 each for a medium). To celebrate its role as the most important and least candle-lit meal, breakfast is served all day, halting hunger with filling fare such as a quiche Lorraine, whose eggs, bacon, gruyere cheese, seasoning, and cream are transported mouthward on an all-butter crust ($4.50). Midday munchers can choose from hot sandwiches such as the roast beef and cheddar or cold classics such as smoked turkey, each served with chips and a choice of side ($6.95 each). Guests in search of greener fare can dive mouth-first into the spinach salad bursting with raisins, red onion, feta cheese, and balsamic vinaigrette ($6.95).
