So, I HATE the decor of this place, but the owner is super sweet and she has a wonderful menu full of things you can't get at many other places. Homemade pies, lovely crepes, great lattes!

One of our many local BBQ establishments. This is the location I usually go to, but there are others around town. Don't be afraid of the fast-paced ordering scenario. It's a right of passage here.

Because it is the best chicken shwarma ever! So what if it is located inside a gas station? Get the platter with hummus, pita, and tabouli and you will be blissfully full. So yummy!

time-tested and approved. I think it is the place to go for the best REAL Japanese food. Great sushi, shabu-shabu, soba, udon, tempura, etc. Not cheap....but I don't really want "cheap" sushi.

Pretty much my favorite coffee house. Been going there since high school and it has such a devoted local fanbase that the Starbucks that moved in next door tucked tail and moved out! That was a happy day. Go and get their mocha and watch the world walk by. You won't be disappointed!

Don't think you like Lentil soup? You haven't been here! So many good flavors. The wait staff like to kid around. Walk down the sidewalk and take in the bakery, the grocery and the hookah bar! If you need to shop for any middle eastern food ingredients, you will find it nearby!

Massive dining room and amazing food! I was hesitant to try this place because of some preconceived notions about German food, but I was impressed with the variety and skill! They go way beyond the usual schnitzel if you get my drift! Dress nice. This isn't Oktoberfest.
