In Merchants Square—the mall at the beginning of Colonial World—this froufrou contemporary place is styled like a greenhouse, with pine beams and bentwood upholstered chairs. Since 1980, it's been where parents take their William & Mary offspring—and where tourists reenter the 21st century. The seasonal food is very likable (sautéed flounder over white corn and baby bok choy; seared pork tenderloin medallions; crab cakes with grilled asparagus and toasted macadamia nuts), but it's dessert that everyone's waiting for. This is chocoholics' heaven, with at least five different extravaganzas, including the signature seven-layer cake filled and topped with matching mousse and meringue. Inevitably, it's named Death by Chocolate.

Open daily 11 am to 3 pm and 5 to 9:30 pm.
