The posse of chefs at Agave Blue piques curious palates with a menu of casual Mexican fusion fare. Step in from the eatery's parking lot to warm up masticators with an appetizer of taco cheese fries ($5.95) topped with taco meat, jalapeños, and shredded cheese. Mouths can move on to deep-fried chicken chimichangas ($9.95), a trio of steak tacos ($10.95) harmonizing with mexican slaw and chimichurri sauce, or the baja burger ($8.95), which hulas to tables with an entourage of grilled pineapple, pepper jack cheese, and sautéed onions. Diners can sip, slurp, and blow bubbles into traditional margaritas, sidling up to the bar to watch the game or hanging out at a table to watch the table.
The menu offers a white mocha ($3.25 for 12 ounces), latte ($2.60), cappuccino ($2.60), hot chocolate ($2.50), steamers ($2.10), blended drinks such as the Frozen Hotty ($3.85) and more. Coffee comes in A, B, and C-sized perky cups. An A-cup of house blend costs $1.75, so this Groupon could caffeinate your mornings for an entire workweek. Add a $.40 flavor shot or a $.50 soy shot for an extra boost. Freshly baked pastries are available daily to complement the coffee. Cold drinks include an iced latte ($2.60 for 12 ounces), mocha ($3), and coffee ($1.55) as well as an Italian soda ($2.75) and an Arnold Palmer ($2).
The history of Ceylon tea can be traced back to the late 19th Century, when a Scotsman by the name of James Taylor cleared 19 acres of land in Sri Lanka to plant the country's first seedlings. It was the beginning of what has since turned into a globally celebrated region of the tea industry—and Ceylon Pearl Tea has certainly contributed.
Rather than snatching steaming teapots from neighborhood windowsills, the company imports teas directly from its family of plantations spread across 53,000 acres of fertile land in Sri Lanka. This valley-to-cup process enables the business to be extremely selective: it picks only the highest qualities of black and green teas, which are available in more than 200 flavors and blends. To enhance the tea-drinking experience, Ceylon Pearl Tea also carries a line of porcelain cups and saucers, and packs customized gift baskets with quality teas and accessories.
After years spent working in other restaurants and bakeries, Jyll Tuggle had a dream to open her own neighborhood eatery where folks could gather to enjoy quality cuisine and hearty conversation. That dream became Under The Umbrella Cafe and Bakery, a cozy brick-walled eatery that quickly won the Denver Post’s endorsement for its light, homemade fare and friendly, local vibe. Families can frequently be found filling seats in the kid-friendly confines, drawn in by a menu peppered with house-baked cinnamon rolls, filled croissants, breakfast burritos, and grilled sandwiches served with a choice of side such as homemade potato salad. Denver-based Pablo's Coffee fills cups with heady brews as laptops luxuriate in the waves of free WiFi and area psychics flock to read their futures in the loose leaves used to steep steaming cups of Sterling tea.
Pablo's friendly team of proficient percolators spend each demitasse-laden day roasting their own beans, creating unique signature blends, and directly importing the best single-origin coffee from around the globe. Trade in today's Groupon for two 16 oz. bags of any of Pablo's fresh grinds such as the best-selling Danger Monkey, a full-bodied house blend of African and Indonesian coffees that instills drinkers with the pep of an early rising orangutan. Or, take a caffeinated jaunt around the globe with pound bags of coffee sourced directly from Sumatra, Kenya, Guatemala, and other international locations. For java junkies unable to wait until they get home to soak up a fresh roasted cup, today's deal also scores buyers a small drip coffee, which can be enjoyed during the ride home, or in Pablo's cozy neighborhood storefront, complete with a checkerboard ceiling and hundred-year-old wooden floors.
