Amid the white, ethereal-curtained confines of A Secret Place Salon and Spa's waxing chamber, aesthetician Carla Cable performs hair evictions with expertise garnered from more than 10 years in the industry. After clients jump, leap, or teleport onto the silver-blanketed treatment table, Cable will slather unwanted strands with warm wax before cleanly stripping them from their follicular domiciles. The entire service takes about 15 minutes, after which personages can leave the salon boasting a smoothness seen elsewhere only in newborn beach balls.
Pete's Breakfast House flips cakes, cracks eggs, and stirs up other farm-fresh ingredients for made-to-order breakfast and lunchtime eats. An extensive menu of daybreak chow pampers palates of off-duty owls and midday risers alike. Breakfast plates act as garage-door openers for the eyelids with options like the Biscuit Plate, on which eggs, bacon, sausage, and biscuits skinny dip in a slather of homemade gravy ($7.75). Fodder aficionados marvel at the use of culinary envelopes in the pesto omelet, which tucks spinach, mushrooms, pesto, parmesan, and jack cheese in a bed of eggs for a postrooster nap ($8.95). The frittata kicks the covers off fresh veggies and cheese to be served open-faced ($9.25).

In order to earn the name med spa, a business must employ physicians, who oversee the various beauty treatments, as well as a medically trained staff. That's because the services offered by med spas tend to be more invasive than those offered at day spas.
