A café, coffee roaster, and bakery, Pastiche is suffused with the aroma of freshly baked bread and entrees cooked from scratch. The fine-dining, four-course dinner serves twosomes an ever-changing menu of house-roasted meats, appetizers, and desserts under the flickering glow of candles and a moon whose dimmers have been set to “romantic.” Meals commence with appetizers such as cheese plates or meatballs, followed by mixed-green salads awash in house-made buttermilk ranch or herb vinaigrette dressing. Entrees including coq au vin or pork tenderloin are sidekicked with au gratin potatoes and house-made bread serving both as a butter canvas and plate-squeegee. Cap off meals with freshly made tiramisu or turtle cheesecake paired with a specialty coffee or frappe. Diners can take advantage of the no-fee BYOB to augment their meal with preferred sips of suds or vino and take time to enjoy the annual Christmas in Canton "City of Lights" event.
The aroma of ribs slowly roasting over pure pecan-wood chips wafts through Uncle Fuller's BBQ as cooks assemble pulled-pork, beef-brisket, and sausage sandwiches slathered in savory sauce. The menu sticks to soul-satisfying fare, accompanied by homestyle sides such as baked beans and turnip greens. Diners have the option of eating in or carrying slabs of ribs back home and can also order meats and sides in bulk to provision large parties or one mildly peckish T. rex.
Beagle Bagel Cafe turns farm-fresh ingredients into a bevy of confectionary treats and scrumptious café fare.

Early risers can catapult themselves mouth-first into a new day with gourmet coffee ($1.25–$1.65) partnered with breakfast-menu scarfables such as bagel sandwiches ($1.99–$3.95) and wraps stuffed with eggs, cheese, and a choice of meat ($6.80). Hot paninis ($7.50) and deli-meat bagel sandwiches ($5.65+) from the lunch and dinner menu pacify postbreakfast hunger pangs. A rotating assortment of cupcakes silences the griping of whiny sweet teeth, providing nearby molars with the silence they need to study for the GRE.

Visitors to Olivia's Food Emporium can stroll the quaint store's bright aisles, filled with aqua-colored shelves and steam-powered grocery carts.
The owners of Wings To Go set up shop in the summer of 1985. They were surprised when customers began streaming in from a nearby beach, hungry from days spent lolling on the warm sand and playing in the waves. Sauce-drenched wings and grilled catfish sandwiches sated those beachgoers' appetites, and today, the eatery's cooks marinate meats at five locations. Among the restaurant's 20 sauces are a Cajun blend and a Caribbean jerk sauce that combines sweetness and waves of rolling warmth. The hot sauce, menacingly dubbed “Homicide,” is ideal when you need to show off a tolerance for spice or pretend to be crying at your boss’ terrible production of Carmen.
