The Fixx keeps the caffeinated in control with a slate of locally roasted, fair-trade organic coffee. Fire up your morning motor with classic drip coffee ($1.50–$1.90), available with free refills, or opt for more lavish day igniters, such as a latte ($2.55–$3.45) or a mocha ($2.85–$3.75). For Revolutionary War re-enactors seeking authentic beverages in between recreations of the battles of Bunker Hill and Endor, The Fixx serves up hot tea ($2.25), and a muffin ($2.25) or a bagel with cream cheese ($1.95) hits the spot like Hideo Nomo at a knock-down-the-bottles carnival game. Other delicious eats include breakfast burritos ($4.25) and boxed lunches containing a sandwich or breakfast burrito, a soda or water, chips, and a cookie ($6).

Lucy's brews strong cups of organic, fair-trade coffee and a sizable selection of espressos. The espresso con panna, topped with a spoonful of whipped cream, can be dolloped on a chin to form a thick, Marx-esque beard. But latte lovers can forget foam mustaches, because Lucy's take on the milky drink has little or no foam. Caffeine-complementary pastries are abundant at Lucy's, and breakfast items, such as a croissandwich with bacon and cheese ($4.25), make any morning manageable. By lunchtime, Lucy's unveils a host of sandwiches, wraps, and paninis.

Every day at more than 770 locations, Jamba Juice proves that good nutrition can be both convenient and delicious. Since the beginning, the company has based its philosophy on choosing whole fruits and all-natural ingredients over artificial flavorings and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and artificial trans fats, and it makes additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.

Although Jamba Juice is serious about using wholesome ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate. Whole fruits and veggies can be blended into an extensive menu of great-tasting smoothies and freshly squeezed juices. But Jamba Juice?s commitment to keeping healthy eating simple informs its solid-food options, too. Customers can kick-start their morning with a steaming bowl of slow-cooked, steel-cut oatmeal, or stay energized throughout the day with six varieties of Energy Bowls: nutrient-rich blends of whole fruit, Greek yogurt or soy milk, and an assortment of dry toppings and fresh fruits.

In addition to nourishing and energizing the human body, Jamba Juice fights childhood obesity by sponsoring Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative encourages fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active?which they can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.

Mount Everest Momo Cafe specializes in Nepalese cuisine rooted in the Napoli Himalayan Mountain region. The softly-baked naan bread emerges warm and puffy from Tandoori ovens and stuffed with spiced ground lamb, nuts, and cheeses. Tibetan specialties include the hearty thupka?a bowl of shrimp, lamb, or chicken accompanied by Tibetan noodles and vegetables and soaking in a savory broth. The menu also includes a spicy chicken vindaloo, lamb curry, and numerous seafood dishes. The mango lassi is a homemade drink made from yogurt and rose water, and rests on the periphery of the menu with desserts such as fluffy milk balls drizzled with a sweet syrup.

At Big Star Coffee, rigorously trained baristas handcraft each cup of coffee to their client’s request, rather than relegating their jobs to automated coffee makers. Drawing on a supply of fair-trade, organic teas and coffee beans, they concoct drinks from simple Americanos to cinnamon- and spice-infused mexican mochas. Alternatively, they blend summery drinks that run the gamut from coffee frappes to Red Bull smoothies, which bolster energy levels and fuel select automobiles. They also stock a glass-fronted case with pastries, wraps, and breakfast sandwiches.

Red chairs pop against the classic black-and-white checkered floor tiles at Korner Bistro. The green plants that fleck the interior offer an aesthetic touch similar to the foam art found atop hot espresso drinks. The balance of the elegant yet cozy ambience matches the balance of the menu. Grilled paninis, 6- to 13-inch sandwiches, and an array of pastries complement a full slate of hot and iced café beverages.
