In a petite 56-seat eatery, the chefs at Café St. Tropez cull fresh ingredients to craft the classic French sandwiches, pastries, and eats that populate the menu. Early risers can replace lingering memories of wailing alarm clocks with the sensations of a Very Berry crepe, a warm amalgamation of seasonal berries and mascarpone sprinkled with vanilla-infused sugar. In the St. Tropez caprese, tomatoes and avocado huddle next to fresh mozzarella as sourdough or wheat toast or a croissant soaks up garlic-infused olive oil like a teddy bear soaks up the sleep-mumbled poetry of children.

If ever you wanted to eat your way across the globe, Nadia's Bistro would be a good place to start. Here, diners can check off Indonesia, Thailand, and parts of the Mediterranean all in one sitting, and all without having to learn language translations for "mmm." Chef Tom prepares dishes from many cultures using both traditional and contemporary techniques. There's the Indonesian specialty gado-gado, for instance, which contains a jumble of fresh veggies, tofu, boiled eggs, and potatoes. Pastas, meanwhile, reign supreme over the Mediterranean portion of the menu, and stir-fries represent Thailand with such specialties as pad pong ka ree–a seafood-based dish loaded with calamari, scallops, and shrimp.

Main St.'s menu items are carefully composed from organic, locally sourced, and natural ingredients and count among their assembly vegan and vegetarian options. Start with fried goat cheese ($7) or celery-root chips ($7), then range like the mighty buffalo onto central fare such as the bison stromboli sandwich with pickles, marinara, and provolone ($6.95). Satisfy an airborne palate with a fancy flight of pan-roasted duck breast with cherry-balsamic reduction ($17), set taste buds a-sail on a skiff of blackened salmon with pineapple pico de gallo ($15), or embrace your stomach's animal-friendly side with a leafy grilled-romaine salad with mustard-parmesan crust ($10). Irrigate a parched gullet with an organic soda (orange, grape, cola, and root beer, $2.25), or fill each of your scientifically abominable four stomachs with French-press organic-coffee service for four ($8), ground fresh upon ordering.

Inside Brunchies, servers carry plates of traditional American diner food, though many were prepared with health in mind. In keeping with the restaurant's name, chefs prepare breakfast and lunch dishes throughout the day. Their signature creations range from a skillet stuffed with cheddar, hash browns, and sausage topped with egg to french toast coated in corn flakes and topped with fruit. They also craft plates of buttermilk pancakes and egg-white omelets, and they stack sandwiches with steak, breaded pork tenderloin, or health-focused ingredients such as grilled chicken and avocado.

La Paix Café slings a snackable selection of crepes, fruit-infused beverages, bubble teas, and 14 flavors of frozen yogurt. A self-serve station invites guests to swirl low- and nonfat yogurts packed with calcium and four types of live, active cultures into white paper cups. More than 40 toppings are on hand to dress flavors such as snickerdoodle and lemon pie. The sweet theme continues with fresh slices of banana whirled into smoothies or bubble teas packed with tapioca pearls. Crepes, one of the café's specialties, envelop sweet fillings of fruit and Nutella, as well as savory morsels of cheese, vegetables, and meats. These thin pancakes sport whimsical names, such as Spam Bot, Farm Ville, and Angry Bird, named for the popular video game Grand Theft Auto: Larry Bird.
