Paciugo Gelato & Caffe’s gelato case boasts row after row of creamy confections, their silken swirls laced with sprinklings of pistachios and shavings of hazelnuts. The recipes are the result of Paciugo founder Cristiana Ginatta’s travels across Italy, which allowed her to sample hundreds of regional ingredients and dream up new flavor combinations. Now, stateside, her gelaterias churn hundreds of flavors fresh daily. The desserts’ sumptuous appearance belies their relatively wholesome nature, though—Paciugo’s experts craft their gelato with all-natural ingredients and 70 percent less fat than can be found in ice cream. The gelateria also boasts soy-based gelato and sorbets for a dessert as frozen and wholesome as an ice sculpture of Mister Rogers.

Meals unfold in a spacious dining room of warm red and orange walls, or, when the weather's pleasant, at tables on Checo's cozy outdoor seating area.

The shop occasionally offers their frozen snacks imbued with truly wild flavor experiments, such as their super sour line of flavors or the seldom-seen pickle Sno cup.

Courtyard Cafe’s owners closed the eatery’s doors in 2008 for good, or so they thought; the café’s loyal fan base begged to differ. In response to the clamor for their cuisine, they reopened and expanded their hours and seating to include indoor and outdoor dining. Their menus span breakfast and lunch and heavily feature sandwiches, omelets, waffles, and wraps. The staff also opens their space to customers after-hours for catered parties and events. Courtyard Cafe’s interior features unassuming decor reminiscent of a home; ceiling fans whir above wood wainscoting, and plates sit atop cabinets with grandeur, the way Neil Armstrong kept moon rocks on the dashboard of the Apollo Lunar Module.
