The potation crafters at Beans & Brews Coffee House whip up hot and cold beverages from perk-proffering coffee beans, relaxing tea leaves, and sweet decaf alternatives. Hot coffee drinks, such as the cappuccino ($3.60 for 12 oz.) or eye-opener brew ($2.80 for 12 oz.) gently jolt the brain awake with mountain-roasted goodness, and the dulcet notes of iced chai ($4.10 for 16 oz.) and B&B frappes ($4.05 for 16 oz.) cool off summer-scorched palates with their sweet, icy taste. Roasters get the most out of each coffee bean with Beans & Brews’ trademark high-altitude roasting, which imparts each batch of grounds with a smooth flavor that, like an angst-riddled teddy bear, maintains a high level of complexity.
In business more than 30 years, La Frontera prepares an authentic menu of Mexican dishes using select ingredients, homespun recipes, and fresh hand-rolled tortillas. Kick off savory adventuring with chips and salsa made from scratch daily ($2–$2.50), or dive in with Frontera nachos, a mishmash of meat, veggies, beans, jalapeños, guacamole, and sour cream ($8.75). The chili platter boasts a lineup of red or green chili, beans, rice, salad, and two tortillas ($7.75), and the renowned chili verde, made fresh every morning, slathers savory cuts throughout the menu.
Inside Yo-Way Yogurt and Crepes, the wheels of imagination spin as customers concoct their own edible masterpieces. Irish mint, dairy-free mango tango, and strawberry banana headline a rotating cast of fro-yo flavors, which provide creamy canvases for eight sauces and nearly 30 toppings such as coconut, brownie bites, and granola. Before excavating to the center of their creation, patrons carry or transport their finished product via forklift to the scale, where it is weighed and priced by the ounce, a more effective method than using pockets as fro-yo portion-control holders. Aside from satisfying cravings for sweets six days a week, Yo-Way Yogurt and Crepes volunteers its services as a sponsor and partner of community-based causes, including the Granite school district.
Crispy-charred cuts of beef, pork, and chicken come out of Hot Lake City BBQ’s slow cooker ready to be slathered in their last saucy layers of barbecue sauce. The piles of barbecue glory are then layered atop grilled buns and surrounded by their suitably royal attendants of baked beans, fries, onion rings, potato salad, or coleslaw. Chefs lovingly prepare each barbecue dish from scratch, using fresh ingredients and homemade meat patties to fashion à la carte or combo meals that diners can dig into in the restaurant’s dining room or take to-go to serve as bait for lonely grills.
As its name suggests, NY Pizza Patrol specializes in Big Apple–style slices. Each of the four locations slings 8-inch to 18-inch pizzas, ranging from the classic meat lover's pie to the boundary-breaking spicy Marshall masala layered with a foundation of Indian garam-masala sauce. The menu supplements the traditional hand-helds with calzones, heroes, pastas, and other specialties, each of which pair well with cold brews, bottomless fountain sodas, and milk, which grows healthy bones when poured on teeth-planted top soil.

Stepping into The Sweet Tooth Fairy shop is like walking into another era: round tables and high-backed chairs surround an old-fashioned soda fountain, and oldies music plays softly nearby. Pale-blue walls and white crown molding stand behind a glass case full of sweet treats, which are baked daily and earned proprietor Megan Faulkner Brown two appearances on The Rachael Ray Show—one when she was still baking in her basement kitchen, and the next three years later, when her business had grown to nine locations.
Megan uses the "most ordinary" ingredients to whip up her extraordinary pastries, which include chocolate-chip and iced oatmeal cookies, brownies, lemon bars, and a variety of cupcakes and full-grown cakes. Signature cakebites don coats of chocolate or white chocolate flecked with sprinkles. Flavors of baked goods rotate monthly, with some favorites available on a daily basis. Gluten-free options are available, as are frosting shots designed to save time usually spent licking every drop of frosting off the top of a full-size cake.
