Hearty American drive-in fare fills the menu at Frank’s Hog Stand, a motorcycle-themed eatery that serves sit-down diners as well as riders on the go. Twosomes can dig into The Chopper philly-cheesesteak sandwich, which nestles succulent beef beneath monterey cheese, grilled onions, and bell peppers ($6.99), or The Dirty Frank, which smothers a hoagie-roll-ensconced hot dog in chili, cheese, and relish, creating a trifecta of taste. A lineup of 100% Angus-beef burgers assumes a range of personalities, from the friendly third-pound A Hand Full to the bombastic 1-pound The Heavy Throttle, each paired with one side, such as french fries, coleslaw, or baked beans. A shared dessert such as a chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry milk shake washes down meaty remnants, or mouths can garble the national anthem as they wrap around an all-American slice of apple pie baked to crispy perfection.
What’s Your Flavor curates classic American concession-style treats filling cups with syrupy shaved ice, sprinkle-topped ice cream, and a range of chips smothered in nacho cheese.

One half emphasizes frosty options such as smoothies and banana splits, and the other focuses on hot nachos and plates of spicy Cheetos topped with melted cheese. Alongside these nostalgic treats, the shop also sells a range of grownup salads and sandwiches.

The Foundry's bean barons orchestrate a menu that brims with organic-certified free-trade coffee and specialty drinks and a buoyant selection of light café fare. A local roaster delivers The Foundry's weekly bounty of coffee beans, which the crew grinds moments before brewing them and pouring the coffee into refillable cups that are as bottomless as a trap door in the Oval Office. Diners can pair the Elvis frappuccino––a blend of peanut butter, banana, and mocha ($4–$4.50)––with a solid savory, such as the spicy chipotle-chicken panini with a melted fusion of chipotle-cheese salsa, mozzarella, pico de gallo, and guacamole ($6.50).
