Visit Shoemaker & Hardt Coffee House and Country Store and you’ll be transported to a turn-of-the-century general store—that is, if the whole world back then happened to smell like coffee. The historical storefront is lined with a collection of antiques, from Coca-Cola ephemera to taxidermy; inside, staffers mix up mochas and top off cappuccinos with foam. The menu also includes teas, hot chocolate, and specialty flavored lattes, such as English Toffee and the Chocolate Grasshopper, a chocolate-peppermint concoction that can double as a conscience if you pour it over a Pinocchio. In addition to antiques and drinks, Shoemaker & Hardt also collects marbles, candles, and old-fashioned candies.

Indian music fills the dining area where patrons sip mango lassis made with fresh fruit and yogurt, like the least-durable buildings. Sound carries into a pub area with flat-screen TVs and a menu of Indian-influenced pub food including chicken wings tossed in masala sauce or mango and chili.

Arturo and Tina Vargas have a unique way of celebrating their family's central Mexican roots. They make an annual journey to different locales south of the border, ending each trip with a visit to their hometown of Cuernavaca. But these aren't average vacations. Instead, Arturo and Tina use the opportunity to discover new ingredients or recipes that they can bring back to Cristina's Fine Mexican Restaurant, their flavorful franchise of Texas eateries. Their culinary findings appear throughout the menu of Tex-Mex cooking.

The staff at each of the Vargas' venues wholeheartedly embraces those deep roots, making flour tortillas in-house, hand-rolling enchiladas, and preparing orders of guacamole directly beside diners' tables. But that's not to say the dishes are expected—salmon with pineapple butter and fried chicken breast with white wine-cream sauce demonstrate some of the kitchens' more experimental inclinations. Flavored margaritas and mojitos can add spirited refreshment to meals, as can any of the beers that the restaurants import from Mexico via man with a very strong throwing arm.
