Food Scene
Great place for an early morning coffee and pastry, or a late night gelato fix. We love an Affogato(gelato with espresso poured over top) They also have a really nice dinner menu. Beautiful patio!

Incredibly Lebanese food. I suggest any one of their "sandwiches" and an order of fries. The Lebanese nachos are also killer. You can get them vegetarian or served with meat. This is a great option for meat eaters AND vegetarians to co-exist. ;-)

KHC is right down the street from the house we live in. It is our go-to coffee spot, HANDS DOWN. Such a sweet, chill vibe. Chickens in the backyard, comfortable patio seating as well as a variety of seating inside. Perfectly friendly staff and delicious eats. Our most often chosen items are a Dirty Chai, Cortado and their gluten free Thumbprint Cookie. The baked goods are sourced from a local baker, the egg casserole(both a meat and veggie option) are made from the owners on chickens by another local restaurant owner. The jams, jellies and syrups are made in house by one of the employee's and they sell honey from the owner's own bees. Can you tell that we love this place?

You will not get flavor like this anywhere else! Lona coins this "Chinese Hill Country Comfort Food". And is it ever comforting! It gets very busy during peak hours, but very worth the wait. The staff works very hard to get food out in a timely manner and are amazing! You will very often see Lona, herself walking around asking people how they are enjoying their eats. I recommend getting an order of their dumplings(vegan or meat, you can also get a combo of the two). If their Hill Tribe Soup is available...get it! ;-) They also have a great beer/wine selection, and a variety of hot teas shipped directly from Lona's friends and family from China.

An incredible brunch spot! We recommend the Pork Belly Benedict, any one of their Hashes, and the Veggie Taco,(a few gems in a completely delicious menu). They make their Bloody Mary's entirely from the ground up, and you can even get spicy, house infused vodka if you wish. Good options for both carnivores and herbivores.

This beautiful and bustling place is our first pick for Ice Cream. They have all the bells and whistles! Sundaes, shakes, malts...boozy martinis! Our usual picks are a Standing Banana Split and/or a Johnny Rabbit Malt made with Zanzibar Chocolate AND a banana. Along with killer ice cream, you can also get an assortment of sandwiches, soups and entrees. We love the Dill Pickles Soup.

A fancy french bakery that will never let you down. If you get there early enough on Friday's you can enjoy "The Darkness" a chocolate croissant that will blow your mind! Even if you just go for a cup of coffee, you will love the beautiful setting and be in awe of the gorgeous handiwork. It almost feels like a bakery museum.

Union is open from Wed-Sun. They are a full service restaurant that also has a baked fresh daily bread counter, where they sell their bread by the whole or half loaf. I recommend any of their perfect breads! During the day, they serve Soups, Salads and Sandwiches. In the evening, they serve pizza. It is a very busy spot! If you get there at peak hours, prepare to wait a bit, but please don't let that deter you from their amazing eats.

Yaquis is a wonderful joint with an intimate neighborhood feel. You will often find us here on Monday evenings, eating pizza and enjoying their 1/2 price wine pours. You get a cool snapshot of the Cherokee Neighborhood. It is right in the middle and a great place to start if you want to keep exploring in either direction. Our latest favorite pizza creation is their House Smoked Chicken, Mushrooms and Red Onion made with Tinto Sauce. Sometimes you can catch some live music!

Big place, lots of seating, extremely family friendly! The wait can be quite long at peak hours, but you can get download the NoWait app and get in line without even walking in the door...you are then free to enjoy a coffee at the Gelateria or do some neighborhood walking/exploring until your wait is almost over. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner here. Their breakfast is centered on crepes, but have many other options(little known fact, if you aren't feeling the crepe scene, you can turn any one of them into an omelette).

This place is a gold star. Small, concise food menu. Very cozy, great staff, awesome place for a beer, cocktail and snack inside on a cold day, OR out on their patio on a beautiful one. I highly recommend the Suffering Bastard cocktail and an order of their fish tacos out on the patio...Or a choice of beer from their vast selection and a Build Your Own Burger. Either way, you won't be disappointed.

This park houses a number of festivals and events during the warmer months, has a Farmers Market from Mid-April through November on Saturday mornings from 8-12.
