Lele's Leaf and Vine just opened in July and is your one stop shop for plants. Now I must confess, I'm far from a green thumb. But the owner, Leah, is very kind and knowledgeable. I know I'm in good hands if I ever have any questions about anything plant-related. I took my kids to the store yesterday on 440 Portage Trail Ext. West, and they both had a blast. Lele's also features some painted art, candles and more. Every time I go into the store there are more products available.

On most Fridaye will be at the Cuyahoga Falls Farmer's Market from 4-7 PM. This event takes place at High Bridge Glens Park located on 1817 Front Street (weather permitting).

On Saturdays, Lele's is at the Stow Farmer's Market (Stow Community Church 1567 Pilgrim Drive in Stow) and the retail store in Cuyahoga Falls is open 1-5. For more info, feel free to visit Lele's Leaf and Vine website or follow Lele's on Instagram.

Stop #2: Asterisk Coffee

Okay, so you've picked up a plant or two from Lele's Leaf and Vine. That's great. What's next? You want something to drink. Asterisk Coffee is located on Front Street features some of the best coffee in the area. Asterisk is actually owned by Akron Coffee Roasters in downtown Akron. You can have a delightful cup of coffee however you'd like it. Maybe you're in the mood for something cold. No problem! Want a specialty drink like the coco cortado? If you're not familiar with it, the cortado is an espresso-based drink, cut with a small amount of steamed milk. Hot chocolate, hot tea, iced tea, and cascara kombucha and traditional cocktails are available as well. You can learn more about Asterisk Coffee here.

Stop #3: Pav's Creamery

Okay, now you have your plant and you have yourself tasty beverage. What's next? Well, how about a cool treat? Pav's Creamery is the next stop. If you haven't been in a while, this store is great with it's old-time soda shop feel. You can enjoy your treats there or take them to go. Either way you can't go wrong. I went there yesterday and sat right at the bar with my kids on the old-fashioned stools. They loved it. We had the traditional ice cream cones with sprinkles.

I even picked up a couple pints to take home. And here's the thing: this is the best deal by far. The pints are often buy one get one free. I was able to pick up a pint of chocolate peanut butter custard and banana chocolate chip custard for only 2.50. You can't beat that. You could even take your pints to go and enjoy them outside on one of the many benches you'll find downtown.

Is there anything other fun businesses that you recommend adding to the list? Let me know in the comments!
