Couched in newly expanded quarters, People’s Food Co-op's cooks draw on a community-minded business model and sate customers’ hunger with a toothsome array of nutritionally sound fare. Locally grown and organic foods shine in a cornucopia of house-made deli concoctions, including a fresh bulk-food bar heavily laden with hot stews, cold salads, and just-right porridges ($7.99/lb). Slabs of corn-polenta torta ($2.16 each) swaddle herb-kissed bundles of kale, red pepper, and feta cheese. A gallery of pre-wrapped options showcases stratified edibles such as breakfast burritos, vegan tempeh Reubens, and reams of roasted veggies sandwiched in Zingerman’s bread ($4.68–$12.99). Tubs of roasted-red-pepper and garlicky raw hummus lend creamy aplomb to al fresco outings on the shop's patio (up to $9.99 each), and nut-studded muffins ($3–$5) and diminutive rounds of raw cashew cheesecake ($3.99) fuel mobile-eating competitions.

A pharaoh luxuriates in a warm pool while four royal cats doze under fanning palm leaves. It's easy for this pharaoh to forget that the entire scene—including the 12-foot obelisk and Egyptian statuary—is decor. The cats are painted on a wall, and the obelisk, though impressive, is just for fun. The pharaoh, too, is merely a customer enjoying the Egyptian suite at Oasis Hot Tub Gardens.
The Egyptian suite is one of 14 themed hot tubs where couples or larger groups privately soak up temperature-controlled bubbles created by the crawl strokes of the facility's resident Michael Phelps. Other evocative motifs include the baroque English countryside, Polynesian islands, and a fragrant pine woods. Guests are also treated to mood music on the multichannel sound system and can use private showers and changing rooms.
