The brainchild of Benny and Sandy Fontana, Olives Italian Market evokes an Old World corner market with dishes hewn from simple family recipes and hard-to-find Italian imported edibles. Panini makers layer imported Italian meats and cheeses atop fresh, rustic breads baked in-house to forge sandwiches, and creamy house-made gelato cools tongues steamy from java brewed from house-roasted coffee beans. The family-run shop also stocks a market of Italian ingredients, including extra-virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegars, capers, pasta, and anchovies that patrons can use to create mouthwatering meals that inspire jealousy in cans of Chef Boyardee.:m]]

Peering out onto Main Plaza between the window panes of their 1925 shopfront, New Braunfels Coffee's baristas tempt passing noses with fragrant Lavazza espresso and baked-from-scratch French pastries. Seven types of salads nest toppings of grilled chicken, feta cheese, and cranberries, and hot deli sandwiches couple with cups of daily soup on tabletops scattered across the café's sunny tiled floor. While the building houses historic charms, the amenities are decidedly modern—free WiFi allows midsip customers to monitor global goings-on or challenge former PE instructors to games of online poker.
