Niko's five cheese pizza with tomatoes (and no red sauce) is amazing and is always an explosion of flavor. Their grinders and pasta dishes are excellent as well. Be sure to get some homemade baklava for desert. The staff is very friendly and Niko is usually right behind the counter.

Janine's Frostee is an oasis of ice cream, hot dogs, burgers, seafood, and more! Live entertainment will often accompany your visit at this relaxing gathering place. There is plenty of outdoor seating (no indoor) with cover in case of a summer rain. They are closed during the winter months and usually open around mid-March. The staff is very energetic and friendly!
