Jolt-N-Java's baristas brew locally roasted coffee beverages and slice up lunch and breakfast sandwiches within the vibrant orange walls of a cozy cafe. Customers can sip on signature caffeinated mochas, flavored lattes, and teas to prep themselves for a day of work or an all-night knitting marathon. Pair a bagel and cream cheese with a large coffee ($4.50), or wed a breakfast sandwich with bacon, ham, or sausage with a medium chai-tea latte ($7.06). A medium latte can unite with a breakfast burrito—a large flour tortilla coddling scrambled eggs and bacon beneath a shower of salsa or the sinus-clearing El Patio hot sauce ($7.57). Guests can order through the drive-through window for speedier satiation or spend an afternoon perched on couch cushions and stools, rifling through or circling every dangling modifier in the shop's selection of books and magazines or shopping online via complimentary WiFi.
Perk Up Coffee Shop’s colorful sign draws passersby into the cozy café, where specialty coffee concoctions pair with freshly baked pastries and sandwiches. Baristas froth steamed milk before it cascades into cups of espresso and Torani syrups for white mochas or flavored lattes. Staff leaps into the holiday spirit, celebrating everything from Valentine’s Day to Christmas with seasonal specialties scrawled across a wall-mounted blackboard. Fresh blueberry and apple-cinnamon scones rise in the oven, as glass display cases safeguard bagels, muffins, and freshly baked cookies from cookie monsters disguised as health inspectors.
The scene is a classic American diner: uniformed waitresses walk past rows of booths, pausing to refill coffee mugs and set down towering stacks of pancakes. Large, sunlit booths provide parents and kids with a venue to converse or sign a treaty that finally ends bitter remote-control battles. Behind the service window, cooks bustle about the kitchen, whipping up generous portions of biscuits and gravy, three-egg omelets, and Mexican-inspired specialties—including chilaquiles, eggs with chorizo, and giant breakfast burritos. Come lunchtime, kitchen staffers turn their attention toward hearty burgers, hot specialty sandwiches, and chicken-fried steaks.
Nunzio Donato Ciaraulo and his wife, Cristina, curate a menu of Old World dishes hailing all corner of Italy, from Venetian-style risotto to coils of tomato-kissed Neapolitan pastas. Though the offerings change regularly, diners can count on classics such as pizzas and pastas joined by a revolving assortment of roasted pork, tender veal, cooked-to-order steaks, and simmering seafood. Sweet teeth applaud louder than an ice-cream truck with subwoofers when they see the dessert menu, which lists traditional mealtime denouements including tiramisu, cannoli, and sorbets.
My Favorite Muffins & Bagel Café cooks up divine deli delights and thrills fans of post-oven muffin batter with cake-like gourmet muffins. Bite into bliss with a gourmet sandwich ($5.65 each), such as the classic turkey, or reprise vegetable-based catchphrases when ordering the holey guacamole sandwich, a flavorful bread shelter for turkey, guacamole, green pepper, lettuce, and tomato. Herbivorous accomplices may feast on light-and-fit choices, such as the garden mix salad ($4.99) and the mediterranean bread salad, a spirited ensemble of ripe tomatoes, onion, cucumbers, and salami in a chorus line with provolone cheese, green olives, crisp greens, and greek vinaigrette dressing ($6.99).
