Kick Butt Coffee
Kick Butt Coffee's ebullient owner Thomas Gohring—who also owns and operates a tai chi and kung fu dojo—shatters expectations of stale coffee and rock-hard scones by using only the finest Arabica beans, grown and raised at Earth's loftiest altitudes. Start the midnight off right with a double espresso shot ($1.99) or a mint mocha ($4.39+). Since breakfast is the most important meal for any day of side-scrolling action/adventure, the café menu matches the martial-arts motif of its beverage selection, along with an in-store supply of street-fighting necessities. Pick up an order of actual throwing stars ($3.99) with a croissant ($1.99+), or pair a pair of nunchucks ($11.99) with a cranberry muffin ($1.99+). For a more potent power-up before facing the level boss, the Kick'n chicken salad Samich offers up a generous portion of protein so spicy that the shop suggests serving it with a soda, slice of cheese, or a tongue-sized fire blanket ($7.99).
