The menu at Café Cravings, sister restaurant to Cravings Wine Bar & Grille, is in essence an encyclopedia of classic American cuisine. There are the sandwiches, which run the gamut from crisp BLTs and triple-decker clubs to the sizzling, strawberry-kissed Monte Cristo. There are the soups, which fill sourdough bread bowls, and the rotating selection of quiches. But most impressive has to be the breakfast. The 25-strong selection is served all day, ensuring that even those who wake up late or have their watch on backward get a bite of fluffy, ham-stuffed Denver omelets and apple-walnut pancakes topped with maple butter.

The eight-page dessert menu is no slouch either. Those who call ahead get their pick of whole cakes, tarts, cobblers, pies, cheesecakes, and other sugar-laden delicacies, which they can pick up inside or at the convenient drive-through window.

For some, it's all about brunch's pulled pork sandwich. Sauce-slathered and juicy, it's the signature dish at 7th Avenue Eatery, where chefs whisk up the barbecue sauce from scratch. But for others, it's the laid-back coffee-shop atmosphere, ideal for dunking a good book into a cup of joe. Whether guests are seeking breakfast, brunch, or a caffeine-complemented snack, however, 7th Avenue Eatery treats them all to its home-style ambience?the restaurant is situated in a house?and hearty comfort fare.

In 1944, Reino Wuollet opened a small bakery where he prepared fresh bread each day. More than 65 years later, his humble shop has grown into six locations where 30 or so family members tinker over cakes, pastries, and pies. Wedding and other occasion cakes are one of their specialties; flavors such as chocolate mousse and Lady Baltimore can be coated with marzipan, buttercream frosting, or fondant in an impressive array of custom designs. Of course, they still bake breads: an international selection of loaves includes baguettes, challah, Swedish lympa, Irish soda bread, and buns shaped into busts of United Nations delegates.

Helmed by married couple Tomas and Maria Silva, the vibrantly embellished restaurant (formerly an 800-square-foot storefront) offers an energetic dinner menu dominated by straight-outta-Tenochtitlan tamales, tacos, nachos, and gorditas. An order of stone-ground corn chips and salsa ($2.50) kicks off Cinco de Mayo's 24-hour fiesta with a little edible confetti. You can also indulge your inner wizard with an order of queso fundido molcajete ($7.69), a bubbling stone cauldron filled with asadero cheese to drizzle atop your tacos (add chunks of chorizo, chipotle, habanero, or ham to the mix for $0.35 each). And if the burrito original (filled with your guisado choice or carne asada, beans, rice, lettuce, and cheese, $7.50) isn't big enough, the burro gigante ($13.99)—a two-foot behemoth stuffed with beans, rice, lettuce, tomato, two meat choices, and (it's rumored) a burro—will give you the mind-bending thrill of eating something larger than your own head. Vegetarians can abide by their uneasy peace treaty with chickens by dining on roasted chile poblanos stuffed with cilantro rice and white cheese ($8.79) or vegetable fajitas ($9.25) filled with cactus, onions, bell peppers, and zucchini. By this point, your piñata might be dangerously close to popping, in which case a spoonful of flan ($3.99) or refreshing gelatina ($2.99) make for safe dessert options. But if you don't want to disappoint the blindfolded birthday boys gathering around your bulging stomach with bats, go with the heavenly tres leches cake ($4.25).

Scooping out more than 200 varieties of ice cream, The Grand Ole Creamery is prepared to satisfy a plethora of palates. The line to the popular establishment has been known to reach the street during busy hours, but customers may spend the short wait ruminating over which of the rotating cast of 31 icy treats to consume. Each patient and self-reflective patron will be rewarded with a tasty pint (a $6 value) picked from flavors such as the pleasantly cordial sweet cream, a tastefully extroverted birthday cake, or the mysterious and brooding black walnut. Grown-up diners are allowed to save supper for last with any large artisan meal-discs from the pizzeria's menu. Options include a cheese pizza with fresh homemade mozzarella (a $14 value) and up to four toppings ($1 each) can be added; the Three Little Pigs, which is peppered with sausage, pepperoni, and canadian bacon (a $17 value); or a Veggie with white sauce, topped with zucchini, eggplant, shallots, and other ground-grown treats (a $16 value). In addition to receiving gastronomic satisfaction, customers will have their nostrils serenaded by the sweet olfactory tunes of the Creamery's home-baked waffle cones, hand-rolled in the store with a chocolate malt ball buried at the bottom. Pizza is available from 4 to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 12 p.m. through 10 p.m. on weekends.
