Though perhaps known best for its catering, Elijah’s also serves its New York-style deli cuisine at its restaurant along with bringing it to customers. The deli staff builds sky-high and overstuffed sandwiches with piles of hot corned beef, smoked turkey, or juicy roast beef. They give their eats names such as “The Rockefeller Center” to remind diners of the time they never went there but ate a delicious sandwich boasting its name.
Though dessert has a reputation for ruining diets, Seaside Yogurt’s kind of frozen treats boasts a slew of health benefits. Each frosty swirl packs a calcium- and protein-loaded punch that works to fortify the immune system, lower cholesterol, and improve digestion. At the self-serve stations, customers can pump their own yogurt and crown it with toppings from a buffet-style topping bar. Flavors rotate regularly, though classics such as cookies 'n' cream, Euro tart, peanut butter, and The Grapes of Wrath are always available. Once yogurt is pumped and topped to a guest’s specifications, a Seaside Yogurt staff member rings up the masterpiece by weight.
Over the past four decades, Starbucks has bloomed from a single coffee shop in Seattle's Pike Place Market to more than 17,000 stores responsible for caffeinating 55 countries. The company’s smiling, green-aproned baristas have become the mascots of many people’s morning routine, pouring cups of dark, medium, and blonde roast for coffee purists and adding shots of caramel or white chocolate to more elaborate espresso creations and treats such as a Frappuccino blended beverage.
Concerned with more than flavour, Starbucks strives to fill its menu with responsibly sourced coffee, cocoa, and tea that protect the farmers and bioregions they come from. These efforts have earned the company a spot on Ethisphere's 2013 list of the world's most ethical companies.

At night, white tablecloths and candles transform Americana for the refined dinner crowd who chow on grilled-duck-breast entree salads ($15.50) and pesto-grilled halibut ($22.95). Visit Americana to enjoy a casual lunch seated outside on the sidewalk with al fresco friends, or stare into the eyes of a potential stunt double over a sophisticated dinner.

A lifelong surfer from Southern California, Ryan Black—joined by his brother, Jeremy, and his friend Ed—ventured to Brazil in 1999 in search of perfect waves. During their explorations of the vibrant country, however, the ocean fell second to a new obsession: deliciously good-for-you açaí berries. They immediately knew that it was their calling to introduce the organic superfood to their native California culture.
With a clearly defined philosophy of caring for people inside and out, they launched a line of açaí products and eventually opened their first Sambazon café—there are now two locales—earning props in fitness and health magazines including Men's Fitness and InStyle. At both cafés, staff members serve 16-ounce smoothies blended with the star berries in addition to supergreens, fresh fruit, and chocolate. The signature açaí bowl features a blend of frozen açaí purée with banana and a sprinkling of granola.
Both of the restaurants were designed and decorated by eVocal, a group of local artists who specialize in eco design. They kept things environmentally friendly by using reclaimed materials for furniture and fixtures, recycled planks of century-old acacia wood for counters, and energy-saving bulbs to slowly toast oats toppings.
