Romance is in the air at Cafe Palermo, and not just because it's owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Nick and Julie Nicoletti. In homage to Sicilian caf?s, antique leaded-glass panels accent the room, and green fronds of ivy and other live plants drift from the walls. Diners order from a menu of classic Italian dishes made from family recipes, most cooked to order by the Nicolettis themselves. In a nod to local tastes, they stuff some dishes with creamy provel cheese instead of plating them on Blues hockey pucks. Cheesecakes handcrafted by Julie provide a sweet finish or can be ordered whole to take home. The romantic atmosphere extends onto the patio, where a fountain bubbles and herbs and flowers lend their scents to the breeze.
As you point out every time you motorcycle off into the sunset, go AWOL, or abandon coworkers to their fate in your office's icy crevasse, you're a lone wolf, baby. Today's Groupon gives roguish loners who play by their own rules a friendly, social, neighborhood coffee shop where they can hang out with fellow roguish loners who play by their own rules (playing board games together not recommended). For $5, you get $15 worth of coffee, sandwiches, and more at the new Lone Wolf Coffee Company in Ballwin.
Step into 6 North Café and sample a variety of offerings from its plentiful menus. Whipping up palatable grub since 2005, this family-owned eatery percolates with a sizeable selection of coffee, breakfast items, and smoothies. Instead of chewing on an old-timey salted leather bootstrap, nosh on a turkey club sandwich with jalapeño cheese and avocado ($6.30), a honey chicken wrap ($6.50), grilled Reuben ($6.96), or a mixed fruit and walnut salad ($6.96). Although scampering atop busses at the crack of dawn in an adrenaline-pumping chase scene is one way to wake up, healthier alternatives include building a breakfast sandwich buttressed by a croissant, bagel, or toast while sipping on a variety of coffee bean brews and Italian sodas. Escape the doldrums of workaday coffee machines and partake in the café's WiFi hot spottery while munching on tasty grub with today’s Groupon.

If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice?s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn?t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it?s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.
Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there?s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there?s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice?all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.
In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit?which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
