It’s a given that incredible restaurants, cafes, bookstores, and retail stores are easily overlooked in a city with so much to choose from. Here are a few businesses you might not be aware of that are well worth a visit.
Great pastries, chocolates, petit fours, etc. Beautiful decorative cakes. Their adjoining After Hours café is a romantic destination for coffee/cocoa and dessert.
A nonprofit, volunteer-staffed, community-oriented coffeehouse w/ fun activities & playtoys for very young children + regular community programs & discussions. (They also just so happen to make great paninis, bagel sandwiches & salads.)
You’ve passed by the quaint gingerbread house with the candy cane-lined walkway, but you should really go inside. A 100% gluten-free bakery, candy store and restaurant. Great for families. The different theme rooms are exquisitely decorated (lots of angels & fairies).
The perfect selection of books for all your brooding Leftist intellectual needs. Name's a mash-up of "Mother Courage" and French philosopher Michel Foucault.
Supplies and resources (incl. classes) for practically everything a d-i-y urban homesteader could possibly need: canning, pickling, flour grinding, soap & candle making, gardening & much more. Wave hi to chickens and goats out back.
