Head baker Lisa Cothran crafts frosting-topped confections and custom pies and cakes from scratch using top-secret recipes garnered during a lifelong love of baking. Inside the pale-blue shop, silver serving trays set off the colorful frosting of signature cupcakes. The shop always supplies a core menu of client favorites alongside a rotating selection of unique flavor combinations, seasonal varieties, and preemie cakes needing special attention. Lisa intersperses her selection of classic and miniature cupcakes with cookies and a listing of cakes and pies she can craft upon request. The shop also connects with clients by hosting a variety of events, allowing patrons to get their hands sugary while decorating cupcakes or convincing gingerbread men of the fashionableness of frosted cravats.
Seven days a week, the soft hum of bees can be heard buzzing around Honey Heaven, a boutique lined with decorative tea sets, children's toys, and a multitude of honey products. The sound isn’t coming from outside. Rather, it echoes from right inside the shop, where a swarm of bees scurry inside a glass-paned observation hive. This secured structure gives guests a chance to admire the bees, working hard as they extract honey from their combs and knit their Queen a sweater. Knowledgeable guides are on hand to walk guests through informative bee tours and explain the shop's vast selection of nectars, beauty products, and gourmet foods, all infused with the local, raw honey.
The shop's adjoining restaurant, Bee-stro Cafe—which offers free WiFi—lets diners taste the fruits of the bees’ labor in the form of honey-infused entrees such as nitrate-free turkey breast and grilled antibiotic-free chicken. Honey can also be found in the shop’s sweet lemonade drink and signature cake. The rest of the menu is dedicated to homemade meals, from hearty meatball and crisp salads topped with mandarin oranges to both a soup and quiche of the day.
Aromas of fluffy pancakes and freshly made omelets waft through Springfield Family Restaurant 24 hours a day. In addition to breakfast fare, the menu also features lunch and dinner items, including strawberry bistro salads of baby field greens, cranberries, pecans, and feta cheese. Ovens bake specialty bread for the french toast, which is battered, grilled, and lightly dusted, like a forest fairy, with powdered sugar.
It has been more than 30 years since Ziggie's Cafe opened its doors to dish out generous portions of American favorites and diner staples. The restaurant serves breakfast any time, which means diners can order spanish omelets, waffles, skillets, and country-fresh eggs during the day or that eerie time when the sun dips below the horizon. Other specialties include chicken-fried steak, gyros, and fettucine alfredo.
Sausage rolls, savory meat pies, and lamingtons—chocolate-dipped and coconut-dusted sponge cake—are a few of the treats available at Walkabout Coffee Shop, a café dedicated to authentic Australian snacks and culture. The spot's friendly baristas also brew single-origin coffees, blend smoothies, and concoct specialty lattes and mochas. Aboriginal-influenced decor lends the coffeehouse a funky, relaxed ambiance, and musicians fill the space with their melodies during open-mic nights.
