For more than five years, Red Mango's frozen yogurt has been garnering national attention, unlike that musician strumming away next to the foosball table in his basement. Among its accolades, the shop earned a spot atop Zagat's 2011 lists for Best Smoothie and Frozen Yogurt Chain and for Best Healthy Options Among Quick Refreshment Chains.
Red Mango lives up to its award-winning reputation by dishing up all-natural and gluten-free yogurts—all of which are either low-fat or nonfat. Each selection promotes healthy digestive and immune systems with natural probiotics. Friendly staff members are always on hand to whip Ghirardelli dark chocolate, POM pomegranate juice, and seasonal pumpkin spice frozen yogurts into Stevia-sweetened smoothies or parfaits layered with organic granola and fruit. For customers looking to create their own cocktails, a toppings bar brims with crunchy cereal, cheesecake bits, and nuts, allowing creative customization.
At locations dotted all over the Pacific Northwest, Black Rock Coffee Bar’s baristas dazzle patrons' taste buds with their simple and elaborate coffee creations. Served in ink-black cups emblazoned with their understated lowercase logo and red stars, their hot drinks range from brewed coffee to chai-tea lattes to flavored mochas. The baristas infuse the mochas with extras—including white chocolate and caramel to create the caramel blondie and hazelnut to concoct the blackout mocha, which, unfortunately, will not make you black out for the entire workday. On the chilly side of the menu, their blended drinks include shake-like delights made sweeter with Oreos, mint chips, and chai, as well as smoothies and icy coffee granitas.
Cherry Street Coffee House displays local art, hosts live music, and holds events at each of its locations. Steam rises from blends of house coffees, forming the shape of perfume bottles that spritz the cafes with the aromas of Brazil nuts and dark cocoa. A medley of coffee beans from Papua New Guinea and Central and South America flavor the signature espresso, which guests can enjoy in between bites of house-made breakfast bagels, quiche, pastries, sandwiches, soups, and salads. Cherry Street's kitchen staff supplies a list of ingredients, highlighting which vibrant dishes are vegan, contain dairy and nuts, or plan to transform into dairy and nuts.
Each crowd-pleasing trio comes on a reusable platter that is handy for later serving B-list house guests. The Wandering Café asks that customers call 48 hours ahead. Home delivery costs extra (call for more information, as pricing varies by area), but The Wandering Café's highway-convenient location makes pick-up easy.
For more than two decades, Evolution Fresh has taken a different approach to making juice. The company rushes fresh-picked fruits and vegetables to its juicing facility, where they?re blended with other obsessively sourced ingredients such as coconut water from the Philippines and ginger from Peru. There are no added colors or flavors that nature didn?t put there. Evolution Fresh cold-presses it?s juice using high-pressure processing, helping to protect the vibrant colors, flavor and nutrients from the raw fruits and vegetables. The result, a juice that tastes as close to fresh-picked as possible.
Use the Evolution Fresh Juice Program to jumpstart your wellness journey. If a Juice Program is not for you, simply take advantage of this great offer to stock your family's fridge with your favorite cold-pressed juice.
Evolution Fresh?s cafe locations not only serve cold-pressed juices, but they specialize in customizable smoothies and handcrafted food as well. The culinary-inspired food includes a cornucopia of veggies, whole grains, and proteins. Cage-free eggs and organic tofu play a starring role in spicy scrambles and other morning delights, while whole-food ingredients like quinoa, baby spinach, zucchini, kale, avocado, and fresh herbs come together in a selection of salads, hot bowls, and zesty wraps. The cafes even do comfort food, serving up toasted cheese sandwiches and signature tomato soup to combat chilly weather.
