Highly trained hands at Parkland Cakes infuse miniature morsels with tasty icing to fashion delectable batches of fresh-baked cupcakes.

Signature tastes such as lemon, almond amaretto, and carrot also jostle for patrons' edible affection.

Foxfield Bar and Grille's flame wizards sizzle up locally grown ingredients to create sumptuous spreads, and professional pourers furnish chalices with a wide variety of cocktails, wines, and beers. A three-cheese panini ($6.50) swaddles a trifecta of provolone, cheddar, and swiss cheeses, and a plate of local shrimp and grits ($7.50) come crowned with house-made gravy—an even more delicious dressing than its cousin, garage-made gravy. A smoked salmon-and-cream-cheese bagel ($7.25) tenderly tackles appetites with the assistance of capers and red onions. In addition to specially selected wines, beers and sake, Foxfield's bartenders concoct a menu of classic and specialty cocktails such as the acai-spirit-based ave maria ($6) and the french kiss vodka martini ($7) made with Chambord and pineapple.
