  • Coffeetopia
    Since 1994, Coffeetopia’s rich aromas have welcomed espresso seekers, cappuccino connoisseurs, and Internet impresarios alike, grinding fresh Santa Cruz Coffee Roasting Company coffee ($2.45/16 oz.) to perk up patrons. In addition to its certified-organic coffees, Coffeetopia whips up italian-style espressos and steeps Silk Road loose-leaf teas. Liquid enjoyment is only half of Coffeetopia’s edible equation, as the shop compiles a menu of belly-pleasing bites, including New York–style boiled bagels that are paired with house-made cream-cheese spreads such as spicy jalapeno ($2.75 on a toasted bagel). The shop’s homemade hummus ($3.25 on a bagel) makes a garlic-packed treat, ideal for smearing on bready surfaces or as a precautionary measure for appearing on Dracula’s new late-night talk show.

  • Betty Burgers
    Betty Burgers '50s-Style Diner | All-Natural Beef | Local Veggies | Burlesque-Themed Menu Sample Menu Starter: nachos with black beans, cheddar, homemade salsa, and guacamole Quick bite: Smokin' Betty, a seasoned half-pound burger with roasted balsamic onions, smoked cheddar cheese, and bacon Entree: hormone-free fried chicken with a biscuit and side Dessert: Dutch's apple pie with ice cream What to Drink: In '50s-diner fashion, Betty Burgers mixes up shakes, malts, and floats blended with Polar Bear ice cream. These old-fashioned drinks come in classic flavors, as well as unique concoctions such as thin mint, cake batter, and turkish coffee. While You're Waiting: Read the story of Betty, which is written in a letter on her restaurant's wall. In it, she describes her start in "a speck of a town" on the Texas panhandle, where her father was always absent and her mother took off with a surfer. Eventually, Betty found a new guardian: a man called Big Dutch, who was always willing to whip her up a burger. Inside Tips Vegetarians can substitute portabella mushrooms for the beef patties, and folks with gluten allergies can order their burgers "bareback style" (in a lettuce wrap). If you can't decide between fries and onion rings, get both on a 50/50 plate.
