Satori Tea Company's resident baristas harness natural loose-leaf tea to pour freshly infused cups during their traditional English teatime experience. Endless pots of tea keep cups brimming with herbal libations, and tea sandwiches insinuate themselves between fingertips or particularly dexterous knees to chase down sips. Heritage English scones bolster the traditional English merriment alongside clotted cream, local preserves, and fresh lemon curd. The afternoon rounds out with a varied selection of sweets and treats.
Blendz is a Best of the Bay establishment renowned for its commitment to energizing the public with healthy fast food served by healthy fast servers. Silverware picks up an especially demure sheen when graced by the popping colors and visibly fresh smells of the made-to-order salads, gourmet soups, and more that grace the pages of the menu. The Celebration Salad merges mandarin oranges, dried cranberries, garlic croutons, and crumbly feta under a veil of champagne dressing ($6.79), while the roasted turkey panino grills together sliced turkey breast, Monterey jack cheese, caramelized onions, and smoky sun-dried tomatoes ($6.99).
Raised in Germany, La Lune Sucrée founder Bettina Pope further cultivated her passion for light, flaky pastries while living abroad in Paris and Sussex. So when Ms. Pope moved to America, she ached for the croissants and streuselkuchen she had savored in European patisseries. She began gathering family recipes and seeking out apprenticeships with pastry chefs such as Olivier Grimaud of Aux Delices de Pierre in France. Now, as head chef at La Lune Sucrée, she fills display cases with her favorite French and German treats, garnishing golden puff pastries with chocolate mousse, vanilla cream, and fresh fruits. Additionally, Ms. Pope enfolds European cheeses and cream sauces into crepe batter she makes from scratch and doles out fresh-baked French baguettes to picnickers and arcade-goers short a mallet for Whack-A-Mole.
