Little Man Ice Cream

This sweet parlor is located inside a giant milk jug, and all the ice cream is hand-made just a few blocks away. In the summer, salted Oreo and Mexican chocolate are favorites. In the winter, some hits don't even involve ice cream such as pulled pork or mac and cheese inside a savory cones (of the plain, flaxseed, and parmesan garlic variety). And for every scoop of ice cream you buy, a three-ounce scoop of rice is donated to different international food charities. 

Comfort Cafe

This nonprofit eatery whips up a different breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu daily using simple, minimal, easy-to-say ingredients. The atmosphere is casual, but the food is gourmet, and best of all, you pay whatever you think the meal was worth. 

Empanada Grill (Highland)

This Venezuelan grill incorporates elements of African, Indian, and European flavors to create dishes like sancocho soup, made with different meats, potatoes, plantains, and yucca. Wash your meal down with a passion fruit smoothie.
