Yordan Café serves up a smorgasbord of authentic Cuban fare at all three meals, with hefty breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus. Mornings begin on the right spoon with hot café con leche ($2.20) and a sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich ($3.99). Latter-day appetites are put to rest with the authentic flavors of 8-inch cuban sandwiches, such as the pressed media noche packed with pork, ham and swiss cheese ($5.99). Yordan’s favorites include sautéed garlic shrimp served with black beans, rice and sweet plantains ($7.99). Dessert options such as natural-fruit smoothies ($2.20) and caramel flan ($1.99) offer as a grand finale a sugar-cane-derived delight.
The aisles of Mark's Hallmark come lined with classic Hallmark giftware for a variety of occasions. Instead of leaving voicemails of heavy breathing punctuated by screams, ready friends and family members for Halloween by gifting them with 9-inch themed plates accented with a personal photo and text ($12 for a package of 10). Or, help guests plan their costumes in advance by sending early party invitations, such as the Spooky Silhouette ($1.59 for one, $0.99 for up to 1,000). Meanwhile, a wide selection of greeting cards (including an array of $0.99 cards) come with envelopes to protect heartfelt poems from being edited by persnickety mailmen. In addition, gift gurus can fill empty spaces in the home with coffee mugs, candles, snow globes, and tote bags.
