An offshoot of the Innate Healing Arts Center, the Golden Gate Cafe nourishes the body with a menu of meat-free tempeh burgers, mushroom stir-fry dishes, soups, and fresh fruit smoothies. Guests feed their cells vital nutrients with salads made from kale, house-pickled beets, and lentils, or snack on handmade hummus and citrus-splashed guacamole. Far more than a mere restaurant, Golden Gate Vegetarian Cafe aims to foster a sense of community, with new friends getting to know each other over cups of organic tea and coffee, with live music in the background to provide a soundtrack for intense vegetable chewing.
It's clear that Socra Tea's priorities are tea and art. Part teahouse, part art gallery, Socra Tea also cares about where that tea and art comes from?all its teas are USDA-certified organic and fair trade, and all the paintings, jewelry, ceramics, clothing, and other art are made by locals. Along with its focus on the environment and local artists, Socra Tea aims to accommodate visitors by offering gluten-free desserts and nondairy milk options, including almond milk.
In the kitchen of Half Time Cafe, you won't find a fryer, or even a freezer. That's because everything on the menu is made fresh and to-order, from the melty chicken quesadilla to a cool quinoa salad mixed with fresh veggies. Freshly brewed coffee is available all day, alongside espresso drinks such as americanos and lattes, as well as wraps and sandwiches lined with just-cracked eggs, tomato, crisp spinach, and feta cheese.
Crepes and coffee have long gone hand-in-hand, but Sky Crepe Dearborn takes the delicious combination one step further by also throwing frozen yogurt, burgers, flatbreads, and salads into the mix. Chefs create sweet and savory crepes with toppings ranging from fresh berries and cream to smoked salmon with arugula and capers, and top burgers with extras like crispy onion straws and pepper jack cheese. Meanwhile, at the coffee counter, staff whip up frozen concoctions like caramel frappes or hot mugs of espresso and chai tea. But the sweetest treats of all are the shop's specialty frozen yogurt sundaes. Topping combinations vary, but favorites include the Coffee Lover, a mixture of espresso yogurt, Heath bar chunks, caramel, and hot fudge, and the Peanut Butter Panic, a helping of vanilla yogurt served with peanut butter sauce, Reese's Peanut Butter cups, hot fudge, and a paper bag to breathe into if the excitement gets to be too much.
Paradise Cafe & Lounge is the kind of place you can hang out for hours. And it is not just because it'll take that long to choose which craft beer to pair with bar snacks such as White Castle sliders and the beer sponge?a pretzel stuffed with jalape?o cheese. It's because there's always something going on. It could be the game on TV, local bands and solo acts, a Monday open mic, Tuesday karaoke, or a Friday comedy show. For those looking for more interactive activities or a very tiny thimble, the bar also has a large selection of board games.
