    Coconut Cafe

    Coconut cafe, a restaurant after mine own heart... Simple, delicious thai food. I could make a day out of eating the pad see ew; that is to say, portions are great. Add some Coconut soup, and summer rolls and it's a wrap for me. They are extremely speedy, whether you eat there or take out. When the check comes, it's one more thing to smile about.

    MiniLuxe

    The marketing concept here is great. A hygienic salon, with a relaxing environment, that is upscale without being stuffy or snide. Somehow the cliente always seems relaxed too, particularly compared to other establishments in this area. Maybe it's the effect of the place! While getting a mani or pedi used to seem like a chore, this establishment makes it seem more like a "mini" retreat. Also, I love the general design of the store: the high ceilings, the semi-circle drying area with well stocked magazines, the super plush pedicure seats. Even the merchandise is fun to look at it, though I try to stay focused on why I came ;) The diversity of the staff is so refreshing too. The women who work the front desk are always very peppy and affable. I've seen Yvonne and Claudia several times for manicures and always have completely interesting conversations with each. And of course, they deliver a fantastic manicure that lasts for a long time. Another standout feature is the ability to book online. If I start planning my day at 9pm at night, it is great to know in advance whether or not I can fit in a quick manicure or color change at some point, without having to wait until the morning. Really, a remarkable feature.

    Manna Massage

    Anna is a fantastic deep tissue massage therapist. Most importantly, her work is truly remedial. More important than just feeling relaxed while receiving the massage, I feel better and free of pain when I leave. Her focus on fascia can be very intense. "Hurts so good" is the best way to describe her work. Still, she encourages communication about your needs and respects your pain threshold. While some people have strong feelings about talking v. not talking during massage, Anna is interested in her clients and interesting herself. She is very adaptable....and it is easy to make small talk or big talk or no talk with her. If you have questions about physiological problems or more, even if they seem silly or obvious, she is a great wealth of information. Additionally, she will offer postures, tools, and exercises to help you to support yourself. This is not in a gimmicky way at all, but very helpful. Even though I consider the practice of yoga a type of self-massage, there are some aches, pains, crimps, and crinkles that can be impossible for one to work out on their own. Anna can get rid of some very serious cobwebs. In scheduling appointments, she is prompt and very accommodating. Prices are reasonable; student discounts and street parking are plentiful.
